Undrafted Hoosiers agree to free agent deals #iufb

Jason Spriggs, Jordan Howard and Nate Sudfeld aren’t the only Hoosiers who have found NFL homes.

Offensive lineman Jake Reed, tight end Michael Cooper and defensive tackle Darius Latham have all reached agreements with organizations after going unselected during Saturday’s final rounds of the NFL Draft.

Cooper, a former walk-on, will join Sudfeld in Washington. Cooper earned All-Big Ten honorable mention honors as a senior after making 17 receptions for 205 yards and two touchdowns. A former Arizona transfer, Cooper appeared in 48 career games and made 14 starts at Indiana.

Latham, a Big Ten honorable mention selection as a junior last season, landed with Oakland. The North Central product decided in late December that he would forego his final year of college eligibility and declare for the draft. He finished his IU career with 81 tackles, 31 solo stops, 7.5 sacks and 18.5 tackles for loss.

Reed, a versatile lineman, reached an agreement with Atlanta, the home of former IU running back Tevin Coleman. The Columbus native appeared in 40 career games between center and guard. He started all 13 games at center during his senior year.

  1. I hope all of them make the most of their chance to play in the NFL. Every year free agents not drafted make an impact on the NFL so each of these players could be one of those players.
