We had TEN top 3 picks this year? That's even better than I thought

OSU also beat Michigan 42-13 last year. At least you had a better "resume" though.

No it's not rare. Around 30% of the players in the NFL were not drafted.

In 2012, there were 608 undrafted players who appeared on active rosters for at least one game, or nearly 30 percent of all players, according to Elias Sports Bureau. Last year, the number was even greater -- 638, or 31.4 percent of the league's 2,026 total players.

This year, there are 456 undrafted players on opening-week 53-man rosters, according to Elias, including 64 rookie free agents. Of those rookies, 36 weren't invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.
