For the third time in five years the Illinois Fighting Illini football team didn’t have any players selected in the NFL Draft, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see any 2017 seniors lining up in the NFL.

Illinois has had several recent players make NFL rosters as undrafted free agents such as Geronimo Allison, Josh Ferguson, Justin Hardee and Matt LaCosse.

Two more Illini will be looking to join this group who made NFL rosters after not being selected in the draft, with more to come.

Christian DiLauro signs with the Cleveland Browns

James Crawford signs with the Baltimore Ravens
