The success of undrafted players in the NFL

The success of undrafted players in the NFL

Hyped by on February 25, 2013 Website: www.statsontapp.com

Over the past several days hundreds of college football players have been putting their skills and abilities on display for NFL teams via the NFL Scouting Combine, professional football’s version of a casting call for those looking to find jobs in the NFL in 2013. Many of the players at this year’s combine in Indianapolis will be drafted and find spots on NFL teams next season.

The NFL draft first came into being in 1936. In that year, 81 players were selected in nine rounds. Today, there are seven rounds of selections with about 250 collegiate players getting drafted by NFL teams.

Most, if not all, teams have done a great deal of homework trying to determine whether or not a player will have what it takes to play in the NFL and whether or not they have a chance to make their roster. But there are times when a player goes undrafted, he signs with an NFL, and he goes on to a big career in the league.
