Post-Draft Roundup: Several Pokes Sign UDFA Deals

See which of OSU’s undrafted departures found a landing spot.

When the last pick of the 2019 NFL Draft was made only two Cowboys had been selected, but that doesn’t mean the rest of OSU’s departures’ pro dreams are over. A handful of former Pokes reached deals with teams as undrafted free agents with the hopes of making the roster this fall.

Here’s a quick look at where each player landed.

Tyron Johnson — Houston Texans

Oklahoma State’second-leading receiver from last year went unclaimed during regulation, but was quickly picked up by the Houston Texans to vie for a role behind superstar wideout DeAndre Hopkins.

Taylor Cornelius — Green Bay Packers

QB1 appears to be headed to Green Bay to learn under Aaron Rodgers and first-year head coach Matt LaFleur.

Jarrell Owens — Cleveland Browns

Owens signed a free agent contract with the Browns following a productive senior season for the Cowboys. He was second only to Jordan Brailford in sacks (six) and tackles for loss (11).

If Owens can stick in The ‘Land, he’ll undoubtedly be featured next to Baker Mayfield in next year’s Super Bowl parade.

Justin Phillips — Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys’ leading tackler will try to make another Cowboys’ roster this summer. The all-conference honorable mention will try to find a home with the NFL’s No. 6 defense in 2018.

Larry Williams — Green Bay Packers

Larry Williams is apparently headed to Green Bay to joining his former QB, Taylor Cornelius.

Williams will try to follow in the footsteps of another former OSU guard who went undrafted. Lane Taylor signed with the team after the close of the 2013 Draft and has worked his way into a starter the last three seasons.

Britton Abbott — New York Giants

The departing Cowboys Back is headed to New York to vie for a spot with the Giants after reaching terms to rookie deal.

Abbott mostly served in the fullback role of the hybrid position, but he did catch all five of his targets over the last two season for 75 yards.

This post will be updated as deals are announced.
