The National Football League hosted its three-day draft last weekend and no players from the WKU football team were selected.
However, three former players continued to gain some buzz and have now signed undrafted free agent contracts with three different teams.
Offensive tackle Cameron Clemmons signed with the San Diego Chargers, tight end Mitchell Henry is headed to Green Bay and cornerback Cam Thomas will join the Buffalo Bills.
The men will join seven former Hilltoppers who were in the NFL last season, including linebacker Andrew Jackson of the Indianapolis Colts and cornerback Jonathan Dowling of the Oakland Raiders, both selected in the 2014 NFL draft.
Other former Hilltoppers in the NFL include running back Antonio Andrews, who played with the Tennessee Titans last season; running back Bobby Rainey, who is a Super Bowl winner with the Ravens and currently is signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; and tight end Jack Doyle, who is currently signed to his hometown team, the Indianapolis Colts.
Defensive back Derrius Brooks has found a home with fellow former Topper Bobby Rainey on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster. Rounding out the pro Toppers is defensive end Quanterus Smith, who is currently under contract with the Denver Broncos.
