After the conclusion of this year's NFL Draft, several former Missouri football players have found spots with NFL teams by finding opportunities as undrafted free agents.

According to his agent, running back Kendial Lawrence has agreed to a deal with the Dallas Cowboys, while, according to their Twitter accounts, Brad Madison, T.J. Moe, Elvis Fisher and Kenronte Walker have also come to terms with teams.

Madison will join the Kansas City Chiefs as a defensive end/long snapper. Moe, a wide receiver, and Fisher, an offensive lineman, will both sign on with the New England Patriots. Walker will join the Cleveland Browns' camp.

Jared McGriff-Culver, a running back who never started for the Tigers, said he will be part of tryouts for the Oakland Raiders on May 9 to 11.

Former Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson was the first Tiger selected, 13th overall by the New York Jets. Richardson, the fifth Missouri player to be taken in first round in the past four years, was an All-SEC player last season, racking up 75 tackles, four sacks and a team-high 10.5 tackles for loss.

Linebacker Zaviar Gooden was the next Tiger taken, 97th overall by the Tennessee Titans. The third-round pick was a three-year starter at Missouri and a team captain last season. He made a total of 226 tackles over his last three seasons. At the NFL Combine, Gooden ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, the fastest time of any linebacker at the event.
