Four Wildcats given NFL opportunity

Four Arizona Wildcats have been given a NFL opportunity. Read on for the latest.

Arizona was one of the few Power 5 schools in the country without a NFL Draft pick, but there were four players that have an opportunity at the NFL. 

Linebacker Paul Magloire was expected by some to be drafted in the later rounds, but never heard his name called.

Instead, Magloire will return home to Florida and compete for a roster spot with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Magloire finished with 81 tackles last season and added 2.5 sacks. In addition, he finished with 72 tackles in his first season as a Wildcat.

There was some confidence in his camp that he would be drafted after a solid showing in the Shrine Game, especially considering that he met with numerous NFL teams, including the New York Giants.

The other player to earn an invite to a rookie camp is offensive lineman Freddie Tagaloa. There may not have been a more frustrating Arizona player in the past two years, as Tagaloa certainly looks like a NFL prospect.

The Cleveland Browns have invited Tagaloa to their camp and while it will be a struggle for him to make a NFL roster, Tagaloa seemingly has the physical ability.

In addition to those two, Trey Griffey has reportedly signed an UDFA contract with the Indianapolis Colts. Last season, Griffey caught 23 passes for 382 yards and two touchdowns.

Defensive lineman Aiulua Fanene also announced that he has been invited to a Rookie Training Camp with the Green Bay Packers.
