It took longer than they would have preferred, but five former Ohio University football players secured spots in the NFL on Saturday and Sunday.
For the first time in three seasons, no Bobcats were selected in the NFL Draft; the 2019 version of the event ended Saturday afternoon. But, four Ohio players landed opportunities on Saturday night and a fifth picked up a destination on Sunday.
Wide receiver Papi White (from Seminole, Okla.) signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Jackson Jaguars. Offensive lineman Joe Lowery (Tallmadge, Ohio) also signed as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears.
