Best Undrafted Free Agents of the Past Decade
By Matt LaPan
Following the NFL Draft, there is a period of time where those players who were not selected have their careers in limbo. Even with no team selecting them, their futures in the NFL are in the hands of NFL coaches and general managers once again. Except now it's a free-for-all.
There have been, and will continue to be, great players who were not drafted. Super Bowl champions, MVPs and all-around superstars have found homes without picking selected in the draft. Players such as Adam Vinatieri, Kurt Warner and Warren Moon have all reached the highest levels of success in the NFL without hearing their name called. In our final look at the drafts of the past decade, we remind you of the best undrafted free agents since 2003.

They both fall on years where other players just happen to be a little better. In the case of Austin it was very close between him and Grimes, but Austin's inability to stay healthy helped Grimes. In the case of Romo, he just fell into a loaded class of undrafted free agents in 03. Gates is arguably one of the best tight ends to play the game when it comes to his stats. Both guys very good hauls for the Cowboys, just not good enough to be on the list.
Tony Romo? Miles Austin?
