Reno, NV (KRNV & - Although, these former Nevada football players didn't hear their names be called in the 2013 NFL Draft, they still signed with NFL teams as Undrafted Free Agents.

Former Nevada Running Back, Stefphon Jefferson, has agreed to a free agent deal with the Tennessee Titans.  Jefferson was a workhorse for Nevada in 2012 as a junior, and was the nation's second leading rusher with 1,883 yards and 24 touchdowns, with 1 receiving TD.  Jefferson decided to forgo his senior season in the silver and blue.

Former Wolf Pack Tight End, Zach Sudfeld, was snatched up as a free agent by the New England Patriots.  Sudfeld fought through a rash of injuries to have a stellar senior season at Nevada.  The 6'7" tight end had 8 receiving touchdowns, plus a fumble recovery touchdown in 13 games played.  He's a big target with good hands who can also block.

Former Nevada Linebacker, Jeremiah Green, has agreed to a free agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  In 2012, Green racked up 68 tackles (41 solo) in 13 games played. He joins former Nevada star Brandon Marshall in Jacksonville, who is also a linebacker for the Jags.

Former Wolf Pack and Douglas High School Offensive Lineman, Jeff Nady, has also agreed to a free agent contract with Jacksonville.  The 6'7", 300 pounder is a versatile and smart lineman who plays rugged on the line.  He was also pursued by the 49ers, but his best fit will be in Jacksonville, who only picked one other tackle in this year's draft.

Former Nevada Offensive Lineman, Chris Barker, has agreed to a free agent deal with the Miami Dolphins.  While at Nevada, Barker set a record of most consecutive games started with 53 games in a row, meaning he started every game with the Pack.

Two former Nevada players were picked up in the 2013 NFL Draft: Safety, Duke Williams (4th Rd to Buffalo) and Cornerback, Khalid Wooten (6th Rd to Tennessee).
