According to Ed Thompson:

Point No. 7: Don't overlook these six undrafted players who line up on the offensive side of the ball.

The NFL is filled with roster players who were never drafted, including running backs such as Green Bay's Ryan Grant, Buffalo's Fred Jackson, and New Orleans' Pierre Thomas. And don't forget about Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Browns receiver and returns specialist Josh Cribbs, and Dolphins wide receiver Davone Bess, who were all deemed to be unworthy of even a seventh-round pick by all 32 teams.

While I don't know if any of these players will rise to the heights of some of those veteran players, here are six who should at least have a job with an NFL team by the time September rolls around:

QB Jarrett Brown - The former West Virginia quarterback told me that he had really connected with 49ers quarterbacks coach Mike Johnson, so it's not surprising that San Francisco grabbed him.

WR Jeremy Williams - The former Tulane star landed in San Diego, and his versatility as a receiver and in the returns game will give him a legitimate shot at sticking.

WR Ryan Wolfe - The former UNLV receiver wasn't able to work out until late in the pre-draft process due to a foot injury, but the Falcons had him high on their radar prior to the draft. Wolfe's 283 catches set a Mountain West Conference all-time record.

RB Rashawn Jackson - At Virginia, Jackson proved that he's not just a fullback, he's a running back who also has good hands out of the backfield. The Carolina Panthers will be hard-pressed to release him if they give him a true shot during training camp.

OG Jeff Byers - Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll brought three of his former USC players onto the roster following the draft. Byers, who can play guard or center, really impressed me at the Senior Bowl with his work ethic and scrappy attitude. He'll put all that he's got into every snap.

TE Logan Paulsen - Pursued by eight clubs after the NFL Draft ended, the 39-game starter opted to reunite with Redskins tight end coach Jon Embree since they had worked together at UCLA. Teams really like his size and blocking ability.
