The player-acquisition process on draft weekend doesn't stop with the announcement of Mr. Irrelvant, the final pick who was Georgia linebacker Tae Crowder to the New York Giants at No. 255 overall.
Nope. Teams race to add the players who were undrafted to their rosters. Quality players slip through the cracks and end up not only making rosters as rookie free agents, but enjoying long, thriving careers. Safety Rodney McLeod is one of many players on the Eagles' roster who overcame the disappointment of draft weekend to stick in the league.
On Saturday evening, the Eagles agreed to terms with 12 undrafted free agents who will compete alongside the 10 draft picks for spots on the 53-player roster. (**Editor's note:**The Eagles announced that wide receiver Khalil Tate agreed to terms Sunday evening, making it 13 undrafted free agents.)
