On Friday, Leonte Carroo was drafted to the Miami Dolphins with the 86th overall pick in the NFL Draft. It turns out Carroo was the only Rutgers player to hear his name called during the three-day extravaganza.
However, the NFL dream is not over for Rutgers' other draft-eligible players, as they have great chances of being signed as free agents.
This post will be continuously updated as any former Rutgers player is signed to NFL Rosters.
