There are still plenty of chances for more ’Noles to get paid.

It’s the dream of every NFL hopeful to hear his name called during the NFL Draft, and several Seminoles had that dream become reality over the last few days. Of course, that dream is only realized by so many players each year; but not being drafted doesn't necessarily mean that one’s goal of playing professionally comes to an end.

Many players go on to cultivate successful careers as undrafted free agents. Often, not being drafted affords players with numerous options a bit of leverage, as well as the freedom to select which franchise makes the most sense. We’ll keep an eye on the following Seminole UFAs, as they’ll look to secure invitations to workouts and sign contracts in the hours and days to come.

Some destinations are already known:

  • Safety Trey Marshall is headed to the Mile High City:
  • Defensive end Jalen Wilkerson appears bound for the Lone Star State:
  • Outside linebacker Jacob Pugh will undergo a true cross-country journey:

  • Linebacker Matthew Thomas has set a course for the Steel City:
  • Running back/cornerback Ryan Green looks destined for the Big Apple after posting in his Instagram story a message of gratitude to the New York Jets.
  • Cornerback Tarvarus McFadden is wheels up for the west coast:
  • Receiver/safety Ermon Lane is headed to The Big Easy as a WR:
  • Former Florida State walk-on receiver Jared Jackson is getting a shot in LA:

Other former FSU players are still waiting to see where the road will lead:

  • Safety Nate Andrews
  • Linebacker Ro’Derrick Hoskins
  • Receiver/DB Malique Jackson
  • Long snapper Stephen Gabbard

Be sure to check back on this often— unlike the draft, which follows a rigidly timed schedule, free agent deals can go down at any time.
