The Washington Redskins selected center Chase Roullier as the 15th selection in the sixth round and the 199th overall selection in this year’s Draft. Full story here.
Shortly after completion of the 2017 NFL Draft, three Wyoming Cowboys received undrafted free-agent offers from NFL teams. Wide receiver Tanner Gentry signed with the Chicago Bears. Tight end Jacob Hollister signed with the 2017 NFL Champion New England Patriots, and linebacker Lucas Wacha signed with the Dallas Cowboys. Full story here.
Two additional Wyoming Cowboys received undrafted free-agent tryout offers with NFL teams. Cowboy seniors Jake Maulhardt received an offer from the New Orleans Saints, and D.J. May received an offer from the Detroit Lions. Maulhardt, who played wide receiver at Wyoming may potentially play tight end at the professional level. May, who played the strong-side linebacker/nickel position in college, may move to safety at the NFL level. Full story here.
