JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Just hours after the draft reports began coming out of where some of the undrafted Red Wolves might be headed. Whether it be on social media or on draft websites, it became evident where some of them might be headed.
Early on NEPatriotsDraft.com reported Ryan Aplin would be headed to Cleveland as an undrafted free agent signing with the Browns. But Aplin said Sunday on social media, his deal had fallen through because of medical issues.
Linebacker Nathan Herrold was said to be headed to St. Louis to play for Jeff Fisher and the Rams as an UDFA. It was also reported on social media Sunday that Herrold's deal with the Rams had fallen through because of medical issues.
It is unspecified what exactly the medical issues are for either play, however, this is not an uncommon occurence for teams to point out minor medical flaws on undrafted free agents and deals to fall through.
The good news of Sunday came from the NFL.com website were it was made official that Red Wolves wide receiver Taylor Stockemer would indeed be headed to the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent. It is also expected that Stockemer's fellow wide-out Josh Jarboe would be headed to the NFL as an UDFA signing with the Washington Redskins. Jarboe and Stockemer both made posts on Facebook and Twitter Saturday night following the draft about their future football destinations, Stockemer saying, "I'm taking my talents to South Beach."
The Only draft pick for the Red Wolves was Safety Don Jones, who was selected by the Dolphins as the 250th overall pick in the 7th round. Jones draft stock rose over the past few weeks after a strong showing in some workouts for several teams.
