When you’re chasing the dream, you use whatever kind of vehicle is available!
That goes for football dreams, too, so with the 2018 NFL draft now concluded, scores of college football players are taking their shots as undrafted free agents. Signing UDFAs starts . . .
It may seem so in many cases, but it is also a chance to showcase skills that may have been overlooked or underestimated. Moreover, players with multiple offers may choose a team/situation that is better for them.
Undeclared free agent lists can change, especially with some players starting with invites to early camps. But for what it’s worth, here is one list of MAC players attempting to reach the NFL through the undrafted free agent route. This list does not include drafted players, and some players may be "visiting" a team.
