33 Undrafted Free Agents made the initial 53 man rosters

undrafted free agent
Reggie Gilliam made the Buffalo Bills 53 man roster after getting signed as an undrafted free agent.

We have broke down the rosters around the NFL and we have discovered that 33 players who went undrafted made the 53 man roster. This is pretty impressive. These guys beat the odds. 24 players that were drafted did not make their teams, but 33 players who were overlooked did!

Both the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had four players make their 53 man roster. That is pretty impressive.

16 teams out of the 32 in the NFL kept a player on their 53 man roster who went undrafted. I am so happy for these guys, especially my boy Reggie Gilliam! Congrats to all!
