Saturday was a busy day as three more tigers were caught. Colby Wooden and Anders Carlson head north to Wisconsin after being drafted by the Green Bay Packers with 116th and 207th overall respectively. Owen Pappoe was included in the day three trek after being called up by the Cardinals of Arizona in round five with the 168th overall selection.
Auburn’s draft class was impressive as a total of five players heard their names called. The total is up from just one last season as Roger McCreary was the only Tiger selected in the 2022 NFL draft by the Tennessee Titans in round two.
Not only were five players selected in the NFL draft, but five more were able to join an NFL franchise by signing non-drafted free agent contracts.
Here’s a look at the five other Tigers who will have a chance to prove their worth in the NFL.
