Teams have signed hundreds of undrafted free agents since the draft ended, most garnering little attention.
You might be surprised how many actually make it: 20 percent of NFL starters entered the league as undrafted free agents, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Last year, teams signed 622 undrafted players and 98 of them (16 percent) made Week 1 rosters, ProFootballTalk reported.
Another 33 made practice squads, meaning 37 percent earned NFL jobs.
Undrafted rookies come way cheaper than the 254 players drafted. They had an average signing bonus of $4,268 last year, according to ProFootballTalk. In contrast, seventh-round picks last year received signing bonuses in the $40,000-to-$50,000 range.
Kurt Warner, John Randle, Tony Romo and James Harrison are among the most famous undrafted free-agent success stories. Others who made it big include Jason Peters, Wes Welker, Antonio Gates, Vonta Leach, Pat Williams,
