The NFL Draft concluded on Saturday with four Iowa State players selected. But other Cyclone standouts are getting their NFL chance as undrafted free agents. 
Signings began shortly after the draft ended. Here’s a list of where Iowa State’s undrafted rookie signings are heading. 
Andrew Mevis, place-kicker: Signed by Jacksonville. 
Coach Matt Campbell says: “Andrew had an outstanding season for us last year and was as dependable of a kicker as there was in the nation. It isn’t very often that you see a player that impacts every special teams unit and does so at such a high level.”
**
Chase Allen, tight end: Signed by Chicago Bears. 
Campbell says: “Chase Allen is one of the true pillars of this era of Iowa State football. He cares about Iowa State and poured himself into this University. He’s sacrificed a lot to make a difference at Iowa State and we couldn’t be happier for Chase.”
**
Mike Rose, linebacker: Signed by Kansas City Chiefs. 
Campbell says: “During Mike’s career, he was someone that always seemed to make the stop and make the big plays for us. He’s a relentless worker that puts the same effort in during practice as he does on game day and that is what made him an elite player. This is a great opportunity for Mike.”
**
Jake Hummel, linebacker: Los Angeles Rams.
Campbell says: “Jake has been a mainstay in our program and is someone that takes great pride in being a Cyclone. He played five seasons and you knew what you would get from him every day. That was maximum effort and attention to detail. I’m thrilled for Jake that he’ll have the opportunity to continue playing football.”
**
Derek Schweiger, OL: New Orleans Saints.
Campbell says: “Derek came to Iowa State as a walk-on and he worked hard despite limited opportunities early in his career. He ended up starting his final two seasons because he stayed the course and continued to work hard and support his teammates. It speaks volumes about his character that he is in this position.”

Greg Eisworth, DB, Invited to Dolphins rookie mini-camp. 
Campbell says: “Iowa State football would not be where it is today without Greg’s leadership. He’s a young man with tremendous character and work ethic that makes his teammates better on an everyday basis. He understands the game and puts in the time to prepare for every moment. I’m thrilled for Greg and his family.”
