I was sitting around, and thinking about quarterbacks that won a Super Bowl, and I began thinking have any undrafted quarterbacks ever won a Super Bowl?

I began doing research and I came across a couple of players’ names, one was Jake Delhomme and the other was Kurt Warner.

Jake Delhomme was undrafted in the 1997 NFL Draft. He spent several years as a backup quarterback before becoming the starter for the Carolina Panthers. Delhomme led the Panthers to Super Bowl XXXVIII, although they ultimately lost to the New England Patriots.

Warner on the other hand, famously went undrafted in the 1994 NFL Draft. After stints in the Arena Football League and NFL Europe, he eventually found success with the St. Louis Rams. He led the Rams to victory in Super Bowl XXXIV and was named the game’s MVP.

These two quarterbacks have achieved remarkable success despite not being drafted into the NFL.

So there is only one undrafted quarterback that has started and won a Super Bowl. That is Kurt Warner, who won Super Bowl 34 in his first year as the Rams’ starting quarterback.
