Once the final pick was announced in the 2014 NFL draft in May, hundreds of NFL hopefuls saw their dreams dashed. But some were able to hold on a bit longer to their aspirations to play at the next level as they signed with various teams as undrafted free agents.

Over the years, guys like Arian FosterWes Welker, James Harrison and Antonio Gates have proven that teams can find hidden gems in the undrafted free-agent market.
