A whopping 31% of the underclassmen who entered the NFL Draft early in 2016 went undrafted. That percentage is staggering and goes to show there is not a sure-thing in the most covered draft in any of the professional sports. Ninety-six underclassmen were available in the 2016 NFL Draft — 12 more than the previous year.

Most, if not all of the early entrants who went undrafted will sign UDFA deals with NFL teams, but those contracts are usually not guaranteed and they have a steep mountain to climb to crack a NFL roster. Below is the full list of those players who did not hear their name called this weekend, with the most notable players in bold.
