After a record five USF players being drafted over the weekend, three more Bulls signed free agent contracts, and two have been invited to NFL mini camps.

The 2010 NFL draft was a record night for USF with 5 players being drafted, DE Jason Pierre-Paul (Giants), FS Nate Allen (Eagles), CB Jerome Murphy (Rams), WR Carlton Mitchell (Browns), and DE George Selvie (Rams). After the draft three more Bulls signed free agent contracts, and two have been invited to NFL mini camps.

USF middle linebacker Kion Wilson, who led the Bulls with 105 tackles as a senior and was named a first-team All-Big East selection by the league's coaches, signed a free-agent contract with the San Diego Chargers.

USF punter/kicker Delbert Alvarado, the Bulls punter the last two seasons that also owns the Big East record with a 56-yard field goal that he set in 2006, signed a free-agent contract with the Dallas Cowboys.

USF linebacker Chris Robinson, who in 2009 was fourth on the team with 55 tackles, nine tackles for loss, and also had 2.5 sacks, one pass breakup, one quarterback hurry, one forced fumble and one blocked kick during his senior season has signed a contract with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

USF receiver Jessie Hester, who finished his USF career with 107 catches for 1,226 yards and eight touchdowns, and was the Bulls offensive MVP after his junior year, has been invited to participate in the Lions' rookie minicamp which begins on Thursday.

Bulls Quarterback Matt Grothe, who owns the BIG EAST career record for total offense with 10,875 yards, but career ended early after knee injury against Charleston Southern in third game of the 2009 season, is still looking for the best situation as a rookie free agent.
