I would think it'd be less likely for late round guys to do that as the roster gets more talented. But who knows...If you draft well, guys could surprise you.
That's where the good drafting teams separate themselves.
Just before the draft shrunk to 7 rds, (Thanks NFLPA) I read a list of all pro players that were drafted in the rd or later. Including UDFA's this is where the Cowboys made their $$$$. (Drew Pearson/Golden Richards/Cornell Green/Everson Walls/Dennis Thurman/Cliff Harris etc... were all drafted after the 8th rd or UNFA's. iirc...
Steve Largent was drafted after the 7th rd by the Oilers. So teams that do their homework Pats/Steelers/Pack etc... have a great advantage.
