Hoosiers in the NFL Draft: Recap

Indiana football extended its streak of having a player selected in the NFL draft to nine seasons on Saturday when the New York Giants selected Micah McFadden in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. McFadden was the only Hoosier drafted this year, but four of his teammates have since signed free agent contracts with NFL teams.

Here’s a quick recap of where these former Hoosiers will be playing professionally:

  • Micah McFadden, LB

Selected 146th overall in the fifth round by the New York Giants

  • Ty Fryfogle, WR

Undrafted Free Agent, signed with the Dallas Cowboys

  • Caleb Jones, OL

Undrafted Free Agent, signed with Green Bay Packers

  • Raheem Layne, DB

Undrafted Free Agent, signed with Los Angeles Chargers

  • Peyton Hendershot, TE

Undrafted Free Agent, signed with Dallas Cowboys


Micah McFadden being the Hoosiers lone draft choice this season is even more remarkable considering he was Indiana’s lowest rated recruit in 2018.
