The NFL Draft is only seven rounds long. It had many more rounds during prior generations. It is a happy time, for those picked. For those who don’t hear their names called, it is not a happy time. There have been several NFL stars who had the misfortune of being passed over in the draft. Yet, they not only survived, but lived long and prosperous NFL careers.
This is the list of players who were not drafted, years played for the Dallas Cowboys and games started (in some cases an estimate as records of this don’t seem to have been kept consistently). Last column is Pro-Bowls and All-Pro selections.
