Everything you need to know about Undrafted Football Players

Everything you need to know about Undrafted Football Players

We began putting together a list of how many Undrafted players were on each roster. I wanted to find out numbers because it is important to me and NFL Draft Diamonds.  So what we are doing is some homework for all our readers.  This shows how many players made the NFL roster as well as their reserves.  I will separate the two so everyone can see with their own eyes how undrafted players are taking over the NFL.

Let’s look at the numbers:

  • AFC = 31 UDFA Free Agents were signed
  • NFC = 43 UDFA Free Agents were signed

Did you know that 28.4% of the NFL is made up of Undrafted players? Here is a total breakdown of the way it works:

  • AFC – 228 total undrafted -26.8 percent of the entire AFC
  • NFC – 255 total undrafted – 30 percent of the entire NFC
  • NFL consists of 1696 players, and 483 are undrafted players which totals 28.4%
