The NFL Draft ended around 5 p.m. Saturday and a couple of hours later, four Iowa State football players signed free agent contracts for a chance with a career in NFL. 

Wide receiver Quenton Bundrage signed a contract with the New York Jets. Bundrage was a top wide receiver during his years at Iowa State until an injury occurred in his junior year that ended his season. 

Bundrage had 109 recpetions, 1,456 yards and 15 touchdowns over his Iowa State career. The 15 touchdowns ties the school history for second all-time. 

Defensive end Dale Pierson signed a contract with the Green Bay Packers. Pierson ended his Iowa State career on a high note with a record-setting senior year. 

Pierson recorded 41 tackles, 12.5 tackles for losses and 8.5 sacks, which tied the single-season school records for sacks. This led to him being selected for All-Big 12 Second-Team. 

Offensive lineman Jamison Lalk will take his Second-Team All-Big 12 honors with him to Buffalo as she signs a contract with the Bills. Offensive lineman Oni Omoile was the last Cyclone to sign a free agent contract with the Oakland Raiders. Omoile started 21 games in his career at Iowa State.

The next step will be rookie camp where all of the drafted and undrafted rookie players will compete for an invitation to summer camp with their respective teams.
