Eleven years ago, the Dallas Cowboys signed quarterback Tony Romo after he was not selected in the 2003 NFL draft. The rest, as they say, is history. Since 2003, the Cowboys have been among the league’s best at unearthing undrafted talent.
Besides Romo, players like kicker Dan Bailey, safety Barry Church, and wide receiver Miles Austin have risen from the undrafted ranks and blossomed into starters. This year, Dallas hopes to strike it rich with their undrafted free agent class like they have in years past.
Is the next Tony Romo lying in wait among the team’s twenty-four rookie free agents, ready to be chiseled from the rough and sculpted into a diamond? Fortunately for the Cowboys, there are several worthy candidates.
