Louisville Football had 4 players drafted during last weekend's NFL Draft, while another 5 were signed shortly after. Overall, nine new former Cardinals will be on NFL rosters next season. I wouldn't call that too bad of a draft for first year head coach Jeff Brohm.

Here is the complete of Cardinals that were drafted or signed this past weekend:

  • Round 4, Pick 129: RB Isaac Guerendo, San Francisco 49ers
  • Round 5, Pick 146: DB Jarvis Brownlee, Cleveland Browns
  • Round 5, Pick 156: WR Jamari Thrash, Tennesse Titans
  • Round 6, Pick 205: RB Jawhar Jordan, Houston Texans
  • Signed: Center Bryan Hudson, Detroit Lions
  • Signed: QB Jack Plummer, Carolina Panthers
  • Signed: OL Eric Miller, Cincinnati Bengals
  • Signed: DB Storm Duck, Miami Dolphins
  • Signed OL Willie Tyler, New York Jets

Overall, Louisville had a decent showing for the weekend, and while not having a player drafted in the first 3 rounds is not ideal, it shows how well rounded this team was. Last year's squad was not filled out with superstars, but good players all over the field, and that is what led them to a 10-4 record. The really exceptional and talented players on the team last year did get drafted like Guerendo and Brownlee.

Isaac Guerendo may have also been a huge steal in the draft, as his combine results were very good and he will be going to a system where he can succeed at an exceptional level with the 49ers. Jordan will also likely have success with the Texans, as they run a mostly zone run scheme, and Jordan was one of the best zone runners in college football last season.

Not to mention if Ashton Gillotte decided to go to the draft this season he would have likely been a moderately high pick, considering he was the best player on the defensive line last season.

It was also nice to see players like Jack Plummer and Storm Duck get signed, as they could really prove their worth on an NFL roster if they were given the chance.

Suficed to say, it was a good weekend for the now Louisville football alumni.
