Though the National Football League draft concluded on Sunday afternoon, many more former Conference USA standouts are continuing their football-playing careers in the professional ranks. A total of 19 former C-USA players have signed NFL free agent contracts in the 48 hours following the conclusion of the draft. Louisville and USF had the most free agent signings with four, followed by East Carolina with three. Several NFL teams open mini-camp on Thursday with all 32 teams holding a mini-camp within the next two weeks.
