Michigan State Spartans sign with NFL teams as undrafted free agents – The Only Colors

Filed under:
The 2022 NFL Draft is now over. Four Michigan State Spartans were selected, which was the most since 2016 when MSU had five players get picked.
It was Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III who was the first Spartan to hear his name called, getting selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the second round at No. 41 overall. Meanwhile, wide receiver Jalen Nailor (sixth round, No. 191 overall to the Minnesota Vikings), fullback/tight end/H-back Connor Heyward (sixth round, No. 208 overall to the Pittsburgh Steelers) and offensive tackle AJ Arcuri (seventh round, No. 261 overall to the Los Angeles Rams) also were drafted.
Now that the draft is finished, prospects who were not selected have a chance to sign with NFL teams as undrafted free agents or get invited to rookie minicamp.
The Only Colors will use this post (originally published on May 1) to track each Spartan joining an NFL team, and update when more news comes in.
So far, this is what we know:
