The draft is over, but that doesn’t mean John Elway is done collecting talented rookies.

Nearly every year, a future NFL star sits through the entire without hearing his name called. These players, undrafted free agents, can sign with any team in the league as soon as the draft ends.

Chris Harris Jr. is the most notable stud that the Broncos have found after the draft, but there are many more. They signed Rod Smith, Shaq Barrett and C.J. Stewart as undrafted free agents and Case Keenum, Darian Stewart and Todd Davis were all signed as undrafted free agents before coming to Denver.

From 2004 through 2014, at least one college free agent made the Broncos opening-day roster, including Tyler Polumbus, Wesley Woodyard and Selvin Young.
