Going undrafted ain’t always a bad thing.

NC State saw three players taken in the 2017 NFL Draft and three more quickly signed free agent deals once the draft was over. Wolfpack seniors Dravious Wright (Rams), Joe Scelfo (Texans), and Bra’Lon Cherry (Titans) each will have a chance to prove themselves in an NFL training camp this fall.

(I can’t decide if that photoshop job is great or gross. The helmet looks cool though.)

Sometimes it’s better to go undrafted than it is to have the symbolic designation of going in the later rounds since you’ve got an opportunity to actually pick where you want to go. Finding a good fit in terms of personnel (or lack thereof) can make it a bit easier to catch on with a team. Not that it’s an easy task in any case.

All the best to these three guys, who definitely will be missed in Raleigh next season.
