5 of the best undrafted free agents in Dallas Cowboys history
4. Everson Walls, DB, 1981-1989
You may know Everson Walls as the guy who holds the interception record that Trevon Diggs tried to break this season. Diggs ended up tying the football legend with 11 takeaways.
Scouts believed that Walls was too slow to be drafted, but the front office took a chance on him and he flourished under head coach Tom Landry.
The Cowboys signed Everson Walls out of Grambling State University. In his nine seasons with Dallas, the defensive back made four Pro Bowls (three in his first three seasons) and one All-Pro team. He collected 44 interceptions while wearing the star.
Walls made an immediate impact on the team, and despite being undrafted, became a starter by only the fifth game of his rookie season. He and Ed Reed are the only players in league history to lead the NFL in interceptions for three seasons (1981, 1982, and 1985).
