Undrafted out of Texas Tech in 2004, Wes Welker would be signed by the San Diego Chargers who released him shortly after and he was able to carve out a niche as a backup Wide Receiver and Return Specialist with the Miami Dolphins. That itself would be a decent career for an undrafted player but the New England Patriots (who are we kidding, Bill Belichick) traded for him and he would become an elite wide out in the National Football League.
Becoming the favorite target of Tom Brady, Welker would rattle off five straight Pro Bowls and would lead the NFL in Receptions. A two-time First Team All-Pro, Welker would assist the Pats greatly in the playoffs scoring four TDs, although he is one of the few Patriot stars of the modern era without a Super Bowl Ring.
Of note, Welker holds the record for the most seasons with 105 Receptions (5) and as of this writing is the all-time reception leader for the Patriots, no small feat indeed.
