Name Pos # Yr Rnd Comments
Willie Foster WR 84 4Sr FA Elusive receiver whose greatest value at the next level will be returning punts.
Clark Harris TE 81 5Sr 6/7 Sure-handed pass catcher coming off a disappointing campaign.  The ability to long-snap increases his worth.
Brian Leonard FB 23 5Sr 2/3
Triple-threat full back who can beat opponents in a variety of ways.
Rameel Meekins DT 60 4Sr FA Quick, penetrating one-gap defensive tackle.
Derrick Roberson CB 11 4Sr FA  
Cameron Stephenson G 63 5Sr FA Athletic blocker with good feet.  Mechanically sound but needs to add bulk and improve his playing strength.
Mike Teel QB 14 3So 6/7 Developing quarterback with a good upside.
Devraun Thompson OLB 55 4Sr 7th One-gap linebacker who should be a special teams demon.
Shawn Tucker WR 4 5Sr FA Nice sized possession wide out whose career has recently been marred by injury.
