Lemon, Goggins and Chibane sign with NFL teams

After not being selected in this years draft, three more Syracuse players signed with NFL teams as undrafted free agents.

As the NFL draft came to a close this weekend, many colleges players were left undrafted, including SU players Alec Lemon, Deon Goggins, Zach Chibane and Marcus Sales. But even though these players didn't hear their name called or receive of phone call from an NFL team, a few of them signed this weekend as undrafted free agents. 

Wide reciever Alec Lemon signed with the Houston Texans, defensive lineman Deon Goggins signed with the Atlanta Falcons and offensive lineman Zach Chibane signed with the Buffalo Bills. Wide reciever Marcus Sales has yet to be signed.

While none of these players had a really good chance of being drafted, the prospect of joining an NFL team as an undrafted free agent allows Lemon, Goggins and Chibane to once again prove their worth, and possible even make the team. 

These three newest members of the NFL  join fellow Orange players Justin Pugh, Ryan Nassib and Shamarko Thomas, who were selected in the first and fourth rounds, respectively. Pugh and Nassib joined the New York Giants, while Thomas joined the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, a total of six players from last year's 8-5 SU football team will try and make their marks at the highest level of football.
