Two members of the University of Texas football team were chosen in the NFL Draft this week when defensive end Charles Omenihu was selected by the Houston Texans in the fifth round and cornerback Kris Boyd was picked in the seventh round by the Minnesota Vikings.
But those aren't the only Longhorns preparing to compete for roster spots in the NFL, because six other UT players have been snatched up as undrafted free agents.
Offensive tackle Calvin Anderson: New England Patriots
Tight end Andrew Beck: New England Patriots
Cornerback Davante Davis: Seattle Seahawks
Wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey: New Orleans Saints
Linebacker Gary Johnson: Kansas City Chiefs
