Undrafted free agent signings 2014: Tracking the NFL Draft aftermath

New, comments

Because seven rounds just isn't enough.

SB Nation 2014 NFL Draft

Going undrafted doesn't kill a football player's dream of playing in the NFL, as the league has a rich history of turning undrafted free agents into valuable pieces. Former Vikings and Seahawks standout John Randle failed to be selected in the 12 rounds of the 1990 NFL Draft, and he's a Hall of Famer now.

NFL Draft grades

After the seventh and final round of the draft, teams will switch gears into full-on recruitment mode. While late-round picks are obligated to show up to the respective camp of the team that drafted them, undrafted free agents have their choice of situations. While teams can't offer more than a non-guaranteed NFL minimum salary, each team is allotted a pool of signing bonus money for the process. According to Pro Football Talk, that number is just over $80,000 for 2014.

Last year's undrafted class was highlighted by a trio of pass-catchers that made an impact for their NFL squad. Tight end Joseph Fauria finished with seven touchdowns with the Lions after failing to be selected out of UCLA. Wide receiver Marlon Brown saw plenty of action for the Baltimore Ravens, as did Kenbrell Tompkins in New England.

Other players to achieve UDFA success in the NFL are Arian Foster, Wes Welker, Priest Holmes, Antonio Gates and Adam Vinatieri.
