NFL Draft 2013: The complete list of Florida Gators drafted and signed as undrafted free agents

Florida has had a whopping 14 players get picked or sign with teams since Thursday.


14 Florida Gators have latched on with NFL teams since the beginning of the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday, with eight getting drafted and six more signing as undrafted free agents on Saturday. Here's the full lists of both.

First, the draft picks:

Player Team Pick
Sharrif Floyd Minnesota Vikings No. 24 (No. 24, first round)
Matt Elam Baltimore Ravens No. 32 (No. 32, first round)
Jon Bostic Chicago Bears No. 50 (No. 19, second round)
Jordan Reed Washington Redskins No. 85 (No. 23, third round)
Jelani Jenkins Miami Dolphins No. 104 (No. 7, fourth round)
Mike Gillislee Miami Dolphins No. 164 (No. 31, fifth round)
Caleb Sturgis Miami Dolphins No. 166 (No. 33, fifth round)
Josh Evans Jacksonville Jaguars No. 169 (No. 1, sixth round)

And here are the undrafted free agents:

Player Team Source
Frankie Hammond Kansas City Chiefs @Dameon8
Omarius Hines Baltimore Ravens @Matt_Pearce13
Omar Hunter Pittsburgh Steelers @Bryan_Holt
Lerentee McCray Denver Broncos @KassidyHill
Xavier Nixon Washington Redskins @DaveJonesUFbeat
Earl Okine Houston Texans @Bryan_Holt

Of note in that second list: McCray's deal is apparently for three years, somewhat rare for an undrafted free agent; Hines probably has a decent chance of making the Ravens roster, considering that Deonte Thompson did the same thing in 2012; and Hunter brings the Steelers back to three Gators on the roster (Marcus Gilbert and Maurkice Pouncey are the other two) after the release of Chris Rainey.

The only draft-eligible Florida players who may still sign UDFA deals and haven't yet are Sam Robey and James Wilson.

Also of note: Former Florida football player Adrian Bushell, who transferred to Louisville, signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Oakland Raiders, and former Florida basketball player Ray Shipman, who transferred to UCF and picked up football, signed a deal with the New Orleans Saints.
