The Chicago Bears are the only team who kept five undrafted free agents. The Cowboys, Seahawks and Colts tied for second with four each.

In total 58 undrafted rookies made NFL rosters, the most since the 2003 season.

57 undrafted rookies made NFL rosters last season, 37 in 2009 and 33 in 2008.

The high amount of undrafted rookies making teams wasn’t predicted considering when the lockout ended. If anything everyone thought it would be hard for these undrafted rookies to make teams, but I guess they proved us wrong.

Now the Bears have the most in the league with five, only time will tell if it’s a bad or good thing for them.

Wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, defensive end Mario Addison, tight end Kyle Adams, linebacker Dom DeCicco and safety Winston Venable are the five undrafted rookies who could make an impact for the Bears this season.
