    Best Undrafted Free Agents Since '94

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedia/photo_gallery/0804/nfl.best.undrafted.free.agents/content.1.html

    The jury's still out on the best undrafted free agents of 2006 and 2007, but here's a look at the top gems in the 12-year period from 1994 to 2005.


    Interesting List. I had forgotten that Pat Williams was a UDFA. Kind of surprised that randle was not on the list considering some of the others listed

    Nice list.
    The draft has fewer rounds than in the old days, lot of talent left on the shelf.
    Then there are the draft flops too.
    Big transition from college to the pros both physically and mentally.

    Undrafted out of Texas A&M, this beefy defensive lineman spent seven seasons in Buffalo and made two straight Pro Bowls while anchoring the Vikings' stout run defense.
    Pat's done OK for himself.

    Randle was probably one of the best undrafted free agent all time but he enters the league in 1990.

    Erin Henderson will be the next player on that list. (If it wasn't for his injuries, he would have be gone in Day 1)

    Your right, I was thinking he entered the league later than that

    Wow.

    Gates wasn't even a football player, he was a B-ball guy. It is nothing short of amazing what he has been able to do. I thought everybody knew that.
