There's only one thing left: Undrafted free agents.
No, these players won't be talked about as much as first-rounders such as Brandon Scherff or even fourth-rounders such as Jeremy Langford. But there's no telling what gems might be waiting to be unearthed here.
Iowa DB Emlen Tunnell and Ohio State kicker Lou Groza both went undrafted, and both are now in the Hall of Fame. More recently, players such as Eastern Illinois' Tony Romo and Tennessee's Arian Foster have also come out of nowhere to make an impact. (And let's not forget about undrafted Penn State TE/OL Garry Gilliam and his play in the NFC Championship Game [see Youtube].)
Who'll separate themselves and prove they should've been drafted? Here's the full list of B1G undrafted free agents and where they've signed, as of Monday morning:
Iowa (7): RB Mark Weisman (Cincinnati Bengals), TE Ray Hamilton (Dallas Cowboys), S John Lowdermilk (San Diego Chargers), DL Louis Trinca-Pasat (St. Louis Rams), WR Kevonte Martin-Manley (Cleveland Browns), WR Damond Powell (Arizona Cardinals), LB Quinton Alston (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
Northwestern (5): WR Kyle Prater (Cleveland Browns), LB Jimmy Hall (Oakland Raiders), LB Chi Chi Ariguzo (San Diego Chargers), C Brandon Vitabile (Indianapolis Colts), WR Tony Jones (Washington Redskins)
