Four Mountaineers Sign as Undrafted Free Agents

Three West Virginia University football players were selected in the seven-round NFL Draft this weekend. Those who were not are signing on as undrafted free agents in the wake of the three-day event.

Julian Miller, a defensive end from Columbus, Ohio, was surprisingly left out of the selection process but quickly signed with the Cincinnati Bengals immediately following the draft.

A 6-foot-4, 268-pound d-lineman, Miller finished his career at West Virginia with 27.5 sacks, 185 total tackles and four forced and recovered fumbles.

Left tackle Don Barclay expected to be taken anywhere from the sixth round to free agency and ultimately landed with the Green Bay Packers when all was said and done.

At 6-foot-4, 310 pounds, Barclay believes he is a valuable asset to an NFL team because of his ability to play the swingman role as a lineman who can take snaps at all five positions.

Eain Smith, the WVU free safety, found his footing in Washington when the Redskins set up a deal with him Saturday night. Smith will join former Mountaineer defensive lineman Chris Neild who was selected by the ‘Skins in last year's draft.

Parkersburg native and WVU long snapper Cody Nutter joined Najee Goode and Keith Tandy with the Bucs.
