It happens. Terrell Davis was a 6th round pick, Shannon Sharpe went in the 7th round, and Denver's all-time leading receiver, Rod Smith, was an undrafted free agent.

I think Joe Montana was either a 3rd or 4th round draft pick. Albert Morris of the Redskins is a sixth round pick and so far he's been outstanding.

Johnny Unitas was drafted by his home town team: The Pittsburgh Steelers, who in the fifties, were FAMOUS for the quarterbacks they let get away.
And yes, Dallas drafted Staubach but they knew he had his Naval career to serve but their gamble served them well when he finally joined the team.
