2011 UFL Draft: 2nd Life for the Undrafted

by DraftSite on May. 3, 2011

This weekend players and fans found out the hard way that not everyone can get drafted to the NFL, even if they were the best player on their college team. To make matters worse, this year there is no free agency due to the lockout, so all of the undrafted players are not able to sign with any NFL teams. Fortunately though for a few of this year's rookies, they have another opportunity in the form of the United Football League. Last night the UFL held their 3rd annual draft, and that generated some hope for a few of the players that didn't make the cut in this year's 2011 NFL Draft. Here is how the 2011 UFL draft unfolded, with the eligible players from this year's NFL draft highlighted below:
