Utah Football: Eight former Utes will get NFL camp invites

It wasn't the best of days for Utah football in the NFL Draft, as only Devontae Booker got his name called, but other Utes will get their shots in the NFL, as eight Utes will go to NFL camps as free agents. Here are the players that will get a shot to earn a roster shot, as of now anyway:

Jason Whittingham: Oakland Raiders

Gionni Paul: Cincinnati Bengals

Siaosi Aiono: Kansas City Chiefs

Tom Hackett: New York Jets

Travis Wilson: Cincinnati Bengals

Tevin Carter: Washington Redskins

Jared Norris: Carolina Panthers

Jason Fanaika: San Francisco 49ers

When Booker fell to the 4th round, I kind of figured we wouldn't see any other Utes drafted, but I wondered if maybe Tevin Carter or someone could sneak into the 7th round. I think you'll see Paul earn a roster spot, once he proves himself (again), and the others have really good chances as well, but it will also come down to health, especially in the case of Carter. All-in-all, best of luck to our former Utes in their NFL dreams!
