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.
Extremely happy to announce that I'm heading to the Dallas Cowboys next weekend.— David Hedelin (@12hedelin) April 30, 2016
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.
