Florida Gators center Kingsley Eguakun went unselected in the 2024 NFL Draft, remaining as one of the top undrafted prospects in college football. Ranking as the 4th best available center according to ESPN, Egukaun signed with the Detriot Lions as an undrafted free agent, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

The 6’3, 300-pound center received a $20,000 signing bonus and $225,00 base salary guarantee, according to Birkett.

Eguakun brings tons of experience to the next level, logging 30 collegiate starts at center throughout his five-year career at Florida.

“Just being able to put the logo on and just being able to go out there and compete in the SEC is a different experience,” Egukaun said on his time in Gainesville.
