Lions Sign 13 Undrafted Free Agents


The Detroit Lions announced Friday that they’ve officially signed 13 undrafted free agents. 

The full list includes: 

  1. TE Nate Becker – Miami (Ohio)
  2. G Beau Benzschawel – Wisconsin
  3. LB Malik Carney – North Carolina
  4. WR Jonathan Duhart – Old Dominion
  5. LB Tre Lamar – Clemson
  6. S C.J. Moore – Mississippi
  7. T Matt Nelson – Iowa
  8. TE Donald Parham – Stetson
  9. LB Anthony Pittman – Wayne State
  10. T Ryan Pope – San Diego State
  11. DT Ray Smith – Boston College
  12. G Micah St. Andrew – Fresno State
  13. DT Kevin Strong – Texas San-Antonio

Benzschawel wound up going undrafted out of Wisconsin, even though many draft analysts had him pegged as a fifth- or sixth-round prospect. Undrafted free agents are expected to sign a three-year, $1.755 million contract in 2019.

During his college career at Wisconsin, Benzschawel made 49 starts at right tackle and right guard. He was a first-team All-Big Ten selection in his first two seasons and a first-team All-American in 2018.
