Anyone who follows the NFL closely knows there are quite a few big-time draft busts. As Rick Gosselin notes, there are quite a few undrafted gems, too.
Two of the best players on the field in the NFL season opener Thursday night were Willie Parker of the Steelers and Wes Welker of the Dolphins. Neither was drafted. In hindsight, you wonder how 32 teams could have whiffed on these guys on draft day.
It makes you wonder, to be sure. This year, the Cowboys released their 4th and 6th round draft picks, along with their 2nd rounders from the 2004 and 2005 drafts. Yet, undrafted free agent Tony Romo is challenging for the starting quarterback spot and two undrafted wide receivers forced cuts of pricey free agents and mid-level draft picks.
