Several Purdue players will at least have a chance to make an NFL roster.

The Draft and free agency have been wrapped up and, other than only having one person drafted, it ended up as a good day with several Purdue players at least getting a shot at the NFL.

Ryan Russell - Ryan was a fifth-round selection of the Dallas Cowboys, where he will join Randy Gregory as a defensive end. SB Nation's Blogging the Boys is very high on him as a late round selection, thinking he could pan out in their 4-3 system.

Akeem Hunt - Get ready to watch a lot of the NFC East this fall if you want to see Boilers play. Hunt, should he make the roster, signed as a free agent with the New York Giants. Big Blue View is also high on him.

Raheem Mostert - With Ryan Kerrigan playing for Washington, Raheem Mostert could make it one player on all four NFC East teams as he signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Eagles. Bleeding Green Nation basically used my breakdown of him.

Gabe Holmes - He of the eternal and perpetual potential is headed to Oakland, where it is hope he is finally healthy and can contribute to a pretty bad NFL team. Holmes was showing promise before injuring his wrist in 2013.

Landon Feichter - Feichter more than exceeded expectations at Purdue, as he was a walk-on that not only played, but became a starter. He now has another uphill climb as he was not signed, but given an invite to a rookie mini-camp with the Browns.

Justin Sinz - Justin was a surprise signing, as he ended up signing down the road with the Colts, who have one of the best quarterbacks alive to make him look better.

Brandon Cottom - This was probably the biggest surprise, as Cottom was used very sparingly in 2014. You can't teach size, however, and he will get a look with Seattle.
