The wide receiver who led the country in receiving yards (1,588) may have gone undrafted, but he did not go unnoticed.
Shortly after the draft ended, the Carolina Panthers picked up former Tulsa standout Keyarris Garrett.
But Garrett wasn’t the only local player who got scooped up.
Other notables who were signed include OU’s Eric Striker (Buffalo Bills), OU’s Durron Neal (Denver Broncos), OU's Frank Shannon (Denver Broncos), OU's Dominique Alexander (Cleveland Browns), and OSU’s Kevin Peterson (Chicago Bears).
