Patrick Crayton by far...Testament to what hard work can do for a player, and that goes for every draft pick taken this late who has strived.

Cortland Finnegan. The Titans best CB last season and a 7th rounder in 06. Aggressive and full of heart and passion.

Rod Smith- Undrafted

I guess lately I'd have to say Earnest Graham. He has done a pretty good job for a guy who wasn't even drafted.

Tony Romo hasn't done too bad for an UDFA

brad johnson. was always a better than most QB and was a 9th round pick i believe...even won a SB

Staubach12

Staubach and Romo. Very similar players, as well.

He is not a NY Giant, but nonetheless, Marques Colston and probably right now Ahmad Bradshaw. Jesse Armstead was a fabulous giant as stated above

As a Bucs fan, gotta go with Earnest Graham, albeit I think he was an UDFA. Terrell Davis is tough to top.

Jamal Anderson
Round7 pick 201


Michael Turner reminds me of Anderson and its kinda cool hes going to be playing for the Falcons. Very simular builds and playing styles.

He wasn't much of a QB, so the point guard reference may be better.

Despite his haters, Barry Sims was a helluva player for an undrafted guy.

Urm, Marques Colston?

Curry also played Point Guard for the Tar Heels as well as playing QB. Kinda reminds me of that other Tar Heel that played football and basketball...
