Amba Etta-Tawo was projected as a sixth of seventh round pick by some sites, but ended up not being drafted at all.

Former Syracuse wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent. Houston Chronicle reporter Aaron Wilson reported the news

Etta-Tawo transferred from Maryland to SU and set records playing under Dino Babers. He broke single season records in receptions (94) and receiving yards (1,482), while tying the record for touchdowns (14)

His performance earned him third-team All-American honors by the Associated Press at the end of the year.

Some mock drafts, like CBS Sports and FOX Sports, had Etta-Tawo going in the sixth or seventh round. Others, like NFL.com and Bleacher Report, didn’t have him going at all.

Etta-Tawo joins Brisly Estime, who signed with the Jets, as draft-eligible SU players on NFL rosters.
