UF’s fourth senior wide receiver — Josh Hammond — did not get drafted but signed an undrafted free-agent contract with the Jaguars on Saturday night.

Defensive tackle Adam Shuler signed with the Arizona Cardinals, while punter Tommy Townsend signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday night. And linebacker David Reese signed with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

UF had seven players drafted by NFL teams: Lamical Perine (Jets), Freddie Swain (Seahawks) and Tyrie Cleveland (Broncos) were selected Saturday and joined CJ Henderson (1st round, 9th overall, Jacksonville Jaguars), Van Jefferson (2nd round, 57th overall, Los Angeles Rams), Jabari Zuniga (3rd round, 79th overall, New York Jets) and Jonathan Greenard (3rd round, 90th overall, Houston Texans).
