Three Ole Miss football players were selected in this year's NFL Draft, and several were picked up as UDFAs after the draft.

Deantre Prince, Cedric Johnson, and Daijahn Anthony were the three Rebels to hear their name called in this year's NFL Draft. All three players were selected on day three. The suspense continued as we waited for the Ole Miss players who missed out to be potentially picked up as UDFAs. Where will each player be fighting for a roster spot?

Dayton Wade, Wide Receiver - Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens picked themselves up lighting in a bottle when they signed receiver Dayton Wade. Over his two seasons with the Rebels, Wade will be remembered for his highlight reel catches, including the one we saw against Georgia this season.

Isaac Ukwu, Defensive End - Detroit Lions

Defensive End Issac Ukwu agreed terms with the Detroit Lions as a UDFA. Ukwu spent one season with the Rebels after transferring from James Madison. He finished this season with 30 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 2 pass defecations.

Jeremiah Jean-Baptiste, Linebacker - Los Angeles Chargers

JJB is heading to Los Angeles after signing a deal with the Chargers. Another player who spent one season in Oxford, Jeremiah Jean-Baptiste, transferred from UCF at the end of 2022. He played a crucial role in 2023, especially in the epic win over LSU. Jean-Baptiste had his best season in tackles in his five seasons in college, with 54.

Zamari Walton, Cornerback - Los Angeles Chargers

Another Ole Miss player heading to the Chargers is cornerback Zamari Walton. The Florida native won an honorable mention in the College Football Network's 2023 All-SEC honors. Walton has spent six seasons in college, racking up six pass breakups in the last two seasons.

Spencer Sanders, Quarterback - Kansas City Chiefs

Quarterback Spencer Sanders netted an invite to Kansas City's rookie training camp. Sanders transferred to Ole Miss from Oklahoma State. However, he only saw limited action as a backup to Jaxson Dart. Sanders had high-end experience as a college starter before the transfer, and he hopes that will put him in good stead at the next level.
