The Oakland Raiders have officially announced the 13 undrafted free agents signed by the team. They will all participate in the rookie mini camp beginning Friday May 11 to Sunday May 13.

Last year alone three members of the NFL All-Pro Team were undrafted. Fullback Vonta Leach, wide receiver Wes Welker, and left tackle Jason Peters all never heard their name called during the draft, but ascended to the pinnacle of honors last season.

Six of the undrafted free agents are on the offensive side of the ball including four wide receivers. Six players inked are on the defensive side of the ball and one punter.
