A glance at AFC East's undrafted rookies
You can tell a lot about a team by the number of undrafted rookies who make the roster.
Undrafted rookies are essential, but they are a case of good news, bad news.
They are pleasant finds for the scouting department and indicate a keen eye for overlooked gems. That said, too many undrafted rookies usually are a sign the front office hasn't hit on a high percentage of draft picks or a team is in full-scale rebuilding mode.
With that in mind, I thought it would be worthwhile to take a look at how many each AFC East club kept on their 53-man rosters Saturday.
Buffalo Bills (5)
Miami Dolphins (3)
New England Patriots (2)
New York Jets (2)
