Leading up to the NFL Draft, all of the talk is about who will go in the first round and even moreso, who will be the number one pick. 

This isn't entirely unreasonable as it is generally the early picks who have the greatest impact on their teams.

It is also common for people to discuss who may be "sleeper" picks, or in other words who may get drafted in later rounds that will still have a great impact on their teams. 

However, the topic that is almost never covered is who will not get drafted at all that will still have a stellar career. These are the players that get overlooked but refuse to take no for a answer and work their way into a quality career and sometimes even the Hall of Fame.

This includes the likes of Kurt Warner, Warren Moon and John Randle. In fact, there are fourteen players who have entered the Hall of Fame despite being undrafted. 

It is interesting to notice that most of these players ended up on teams that were extremely competitive—which just goes to show you that quality organizations find quality players anywhere.

In honor of those who will get overlooked in this year's draft here are the ten best active players in the NFL that did not get drafted.
