|Three Vandals catch on in NFL|
MOSCOW - The 2010 NFL Draft ended Saturday afternoon - and then things got crazy. In the rush to sign undrafted free agents, three Idaho football players earned deals with two teams.
Wide Receiver Max Komar signed on with the Arizona Cardinals, while safety Jeromy Jones and running back De'Maundray Woolridge went to the St. Louis Rams.
Komar said he heard from the Cardinals during the sixth round of the draft about possibly being a final-round draft pick, but still stayed close to the phone and got his free agent offer shortly after the draft ended. He catches on with a team that is one year removed from a Super Bowl appearance.
Two years after former Vandal and "Mr. Irrelevant," David Vobora, was drafted by the Rams, the team dipped into the Idaho program again and grabbed two Humanitarian Bowl heroes.
Woolridge, aptly nicknamed "Diesel," is the bruising running back who earned bowl MVP honors after scoring twice, while Jones grabbed a key interception early in the second half that led to a score and turned the momentum Idaho's way.
The three free agent signees give Idaho four NFL additions for the 2010 season. Offensive lineman Mike Iupati was picked with the 17th overall pick in the draft.
