With the three-day ESPN production known as the 2014 NFL Draft in the books, plenty of talented players remain hopeful of earning their ways onto an NFL team roster through the ranks of free agency. Despite having a 2-10 season that saw an 0-8 record in the ACC, the Virginia Cavaliers found themselves with three NFL draftees: Morgan Moses to the Redskins, Brent Urban to the Ravens, and Luke Bowanko to the Jaguars.

The undrafted free agent (UDFA) is notoriously fluid, so anything could change in a moment's notice. Teams cannot offer any more than a non-guaranteed NFL minimum salary, but they do have a pool of approximately $80,000 to work with as signing bonus money for UDFAs.

Notable former undrafted free agents include Arian Foster, Wes Welker, Antonio Holmes and Adam Vinatieri.

Now and over the next few days and weeks, keep an eye out for which former Cavaliers may be signing free agent contracts. As of this writing, former UVA DE Jake Snyder has signed with the Minnesota Vikings as one of sixteen free agents (as of the time of publishing this report).

Former Wahoo Justin Renfrow, who graduated from UVA in the summer of 2013 and transferred to Miami last year, has reportedly signed with the Arizona Cardinals as a free agent. He was a reserve player at Virginia, but became a starting defensive lineman for the Hurricanes this past season.

Keep checking back on Streaking The Lawn for any other possible UDFA signings. If you're keeping track of other free agent signings, SB Nation is tracking those down for you as well.
