Notre Dame had 8 players picked in the 2014 NFL Draft: OT Zack Martin, DE Stephon Tuitt, TE Troy Niklas, DT Louis Nix, OG Chris Watt, LB Prince Shembo, CB Bennett Jackson, and WR TJ Jones.
Although they were not picked in the NFL Draft several other players will get a shot to make a roster via free agent deals that were signed late Saturday night.

The odds are really low that any free agent rookie will make a roster but you never know. If anyone is a fan of these teams chime in on what you think the chances are of any of these players making a roster.
Obviously, there will be plenty of attention paid to Tommy Rees heading to Washington. With RG3, Kirk Cousins, and Colt McCoy already under contract it would seem near impossible to make the team.
We'll see how George Atkinson fares on his father's old team, as well. Can he make the team as a return specialist?
