The United Nations of Purdue Football is sending a player off to the NFL. Darrell Hazell has raided Europe for prospects in David Hedelin (Sweden) and Anthony Mahoungou (France), and now one will have a shot at making an NFL roster. Hedelin reached an undrafted free agent agreement with the Dallas Cowboys earlier today.

Hedelin had a bizarre, and short, career with Purdue. As A JuCo he was only here for two years,but he was a 4-star recruit. He had to sit the first few games of his junior season due to an NCAA suspension for playing for a club team in his native Sweden. Then, he missed the final two games of 2015 due to a concussion, so he played in less than 20 games for us. He was still a decent left tackle and has the size to be a promising developmental prospect.

For our friends at Blogging the Boys we have a draft profile on David.
