Four other BYU players signed free-agent contracts and are scheduled to participate in mini-camps this week with their new teams.
BYU's free agent commitments:
* Receiver Reno Mahe signed a free-agent deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
* Offensive lineman Isaac Herring will join Rykert in Oakland, after inking with the Raiders.
* Tight end Gabriel Reid signed with the New York Jets.
This year's draft marks the third straight a BYU tight end has been selected in the seven-round process.
Meanwhile, Rykert is the first BYU offensive lineman to be drafted since Matt Johnson was selected in the fifth round by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2001 draft.
