Jeff Saturday, Gary Brackett, Arian Foster, Fred Jackson, Wes Welker, James Harrison, Antonio Gates. Just a few players that went undrafted that made (and some still make) significant contributions to their teams. Even after the seven rounds of drafting are complete, front offices around the league are just getting started for the evening. Tonight we'll see anywhere from 8 to 15 players signed by every team, finalizing rosters before mini-camps begin.
The Colts will assuredly be busy, most likely at both WR and CB, two positions they ignored during the draft. I'm sure they'll be looking at more Offensive and Defensive Line players as well. Some notable guys who were not drafted include WR
Da'Rick Rogers (Bills), OLB Chase Thomas (Saints), OT Xavier Nixon (Redskins), and OG Alvin Bailey.
I'll be updating this list as we learn about the signings. Just leave them in the comments with a link and I'll add them to the list.

The Colts only have seven roster spots open (90 max), so some of these guys won't make it past the Colts Rookie camp on May 9.
