Hundreds of athletes are landing deals with NFL teams this weekend, many of whom were drafted, while plenty more were not.

Not many of them played college basketball, though.

One did - former Clemson basketball player Naz Bohannon. The ex-Tigers college basketball player will get an opportunity with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Bohannon has landed an invitation to Jaguars camp.

Bohannon will try to become the latest former college basketball player to develop into a tight end in the National Football League.

We've seen that happen in the past, as Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates, among others, played college basketball before playing in the NFL.
