Ole Miss had four former players taken in this year’s NFL Draft, but there are others who will get a chance at the next level by way of the free-agent route.
As of late Saturday night, receivers Damore’ea Stringfellow and Quincy Adeboyejo, defensive end Fadol Brown, cornerbacks Tony Bridges and Carlos Davis and offensive lineman Jeremy Liggins were former Rebels who had signed as undrafted free agents.
Stringfellow’s decision to bypass his senior season didn’t go as planned, but the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder, who started two years at Ole Miss, will get a shot with the Miami Dolphins. Brown, a three-year starter, signed with the Las Vegas Raiders.
Adeboyejo and Davis inked with the Baltimore Ravens with Davis, who spent most of his career as a special-teams contributor but blazed a 4.37 40-yard dash at Ole Miss’ pro day, announcing his signing with a post to his Instagram account.
Bridges signed with the Seattle Seahawks as did Liggins, according to multiple media reports. A former Lafayette High standout, the 6-3 Liggins, who ran a 4.95 40 at 315 pounds at Ole Miss’ pro day, played quarterback and tight end in college before making the permanent move to the offensive line, spending his senior season as a reserve tackle.
Running back Akeem Judd signed with the Tennessee Titans, according to The Tennessean.
