With the draft over and DGWU waiting for a possible draft recap from the Wire (since none of us know what the fuck we are talking about), I feel like getting to know our new undrafted free agents is just as important. These guys may not come with all the hoopla and bitchy blogger twitter fights, but they still play an important part in training camp and may actually make the squad. Look at past undrafted "stars" like George Wilson, David Nelson, and even Brian Moorman! Any of these new, young cowpokes could be diamonds in the fluff and be leading the Buffalo Bills team to a 5 - 11 season in no time!
So sit back and enjoy the extensive research I have done to inform you, the reader, about what possible gems await us when training camp opens. (Note: 98% of this profile is completely fabricated and in no way accurate. Eat me.)
