There were 256 players selected in the seven rounds of the 2014 NFL draft, but there are many prospects who weren't taken who will have the opportunity to make teams this offseason, as happens every year.

Here is a list of the top-ranked players from our board whose names weren't called in the draft.

1. Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers

Coleman dealt with a knee injury for most of the 2013 season and had an underwhelming season. Durability and inconsistent hands likely played a part in him going undrafted. However, he has intriguing size and athleticism as a vertical downfield threat, which will appeal to teams as a free agent.

2. Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida

Like his teammate and fellow cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy, Roberson had a tough 2013 campaign. Injuries and a suspension prevented him from getting on track. Roberson has above-average size and strength as a press-type corner, and he has starting talent if able to right the ship.

-- Signed with Rams (Nick Wagoner)

3. Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee

Richardson has a massive frame but lacks ideal athleticism, flexibility and is a bit of waist-bender, which in the end scared teams from using a draft pick on him. That said, Richardson has the size, length and inline power as a developmental prospect.

4. Adrian Hubbard, OLB, Alabama

Hubbard has intriguing length, athleticism and versatility as an edge defender. However, on tape he was a bit finesse at the point of attack, and his motor ran hot and cold at times, which likely caused him to go undrafted.

-- Signed with Packers (Rob Demovsky)

5. Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas

Jeffcoat was productive throughout his career at Texas and flashes upside as a pass-rusher. He also improved his strength at the point of attack defending the run in 2013. However, his average combination of quickness and flexibility as a rusher combined with some durability baggage likely scared teams away.

6. Christian Jones, OLB, FSU

Jones comes with some character concerns, and his lack of ideal instincts in space leaves him without an ideal fit. However, he has an ideal frame, above-average athleticism and has some upside as a pass-rusher to work with when he gets into a camp.

7. Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina

Lack of ideal athleticism, flexibility and a recent off-field incident may have scared teams away from Quarles. However, he has thick frame and possesses above-average core strength. He also flashes the power to collapse the pocket as an interior pass-rusher. Quarles has a chance to make a roster and add depth to a front line for a cheap price.

-- Signed with Giants (Dan Graziano)

8. Vic Hampton, CB, South Carolina

Hampton has the talent on tape to develop into a strong backup and eventual starter. However, a long list of off-the-field incidents and character concerns was ultimately too risky for teams to take a shot on him with a draft pick.

9. Craig Loston, safety, LSU

Loston has above-average size and adequate speed. He's physical, reliable and shows the ability to deliver a bit hit in run support. However, lack of ideal instincts and playmaking ability in the backend along with durability concerns likely played a big part in his going undrafted.

-- Signed with Jaguars (Josh Weinfuss/Mike DiRocco)

10. Zach Kerr, DT, Delaware

Kerr has a massive frame and a prototypical anchor to be an efficient two-gap prospect. He is also light on his feet and shows above-average lateral agility. However, scouts have had concerns about work ethic and some off-field issues, which may have prevented them from pulling the trigger.
