Make that 4!

The 2014 NFL Draft is over, and shortly after the draft ends, the teams are free to extend contracts, usually "make good' contracts, to players no team took.

3 Oregon St. players have quickly signed on with NFL teams.

Cornerback Rashaad Reynolds was the one most likely to have been drafted, but when no one uses a pick on the multi-year starter, the Jacksonville Jaguars jumped at the chance, signing up the 5'11", 187 lb. Reynolds. Reynolds made 38 starts in the secondary at Oregon St., and had 10 career interceptions.

The most likely to make it might be offensive lineman Josh "Juice" Andrews, who signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. Former Oregon coach Chip Kelly in his 2 years as the Eagles head coach has made a habit of collecting Pac-12 players, which makes sense, given he has direct experience with or against them.

The 6'2" 304 lb. Andrews made 32 starts for the Beavers in his 4 year career.

The surprise signing of the evening is WR Micah Harfield, who got the call from the San Diego Chargers. Several injuries and a deep run of NFL bound talent in the position that included James Rodgers, Markus Wheaton, and Brandin Cooks kept Hatfield from ever being even a spot starter, and was always a rotation relief receive. But his athleticism and experience in Oregon St. head coach Mike Riley's pro style system earned the 6'2". 181 lb wideout a shot.

UPDATE:

Offensive tackle Michael Philipp has also signed, with the Cleveland Browns.

The 6'4", 328 lb.  Phillip was a starter throughout his career, except his redshirt season, which was not his first year, with 48 starts as a Beaver.

It's a little surprising that Philipp's signing was delayed as long as it was, given that linemen of his size and experience aren't that plentiful.
