While the Philadelphia Eagles have been successful in recent drafts, the team also has a history of finding undrafted talent in recent years.

In recent years, the Philadelphia Eagles have found luck in finding productive players that previously went undrafted, with former running back Corey Clement and current wide receiver Greg Ward Jr. immediately coming to mind.

Every college player that declares for the NFL Draft hopes to hear their name called during the three-day event, but unfortunately there is always a large group that ends up failing to make the cut.

But luckily, the dream of playing in the NFL does not stop there for some of these athletes, as a lot of these guys earn opportunities following the draft as undrafted free agents.

Once training camp arrives, undrafted free agents tend to have the most to prove since their spot on the roster is far from a guarantee.

The undrafted players on teams always want to prove doubters in regards to showing they deserved to be selected in the draft, and a spot on the team.

A lot of these previously undrafted players tend to play with an edge their whole career because that will push them to be the best they can.

Even though most of the attention at the moment surrounding the draft is which players have the best chance of joining Philadelphia during the seven rounds of action, it will also be interesting to see who ends up signing afterwards as well as undrafted free agents.

As previously mentioned, since Clement and Ward are two of the most recent success stories when it comes to the Eagles, it’s time to take a look their success stories to the NFL.
