However, the most obvious players aren't always the ones who came in and impressed right away. Here, per Pro Football Reference's Approximate Value metric ( explained here ), are the 10 players who managed to get things going right away despite their undrafted status. Yes, four of these players had headstarts in the Canadian Football League, but we're counting them anyway. They still had steep learning curves to master once they hit the NFL.
