Now the focus turns to the two players who remain undrafted prospects. USC wide receiver Tyler Vaughns and cornerback Olaijah Griffin.

Griffin took to social media after the NFL Draft wrapped up writing, "Crushed never knew I could feel this way."

Being an undrafted free agent may be a disappointing start to ones NFL career, but it doesn't mean their future in the league is over for good.

Some of the NFL's most prominent players entered the league as undrafted rookies. Take Quarterback Tony Romo, for example, he went unselected out of Eastern Illinois in the 2003 NFL draft.

Only time will tell if either of these draft-eligible players will get the opportunity to sign with one NFL team. But their journeys are not over yet, in fact far from it.  

Update: Olaijah Griffin signs with the Buffalo Bills.
