Texas A&M football sees two more sign as UDFAs after 2024 NFL draft

It's been a decently successful 2024 draft for Texas A&M football. The Aggies had only one player who was a surefire lock to get drafted, and while Edgerrin Cooper didn't go in the first round, he was still a top-50 selection and is headed to a positive situation.

The others on the list of draft-eligible Aggies consisted of four players who possessed varying levels of possibility as to whether or not they would end up being selected by a team. McKinnley Jackson, for example, was near a sure thing to have his name called, but catastrophe could have conceivably struck that led to him sliding out of the draft. Layden Robinson and Ainias Smith were not as sure of a thing, but all three ended up being selected. The only borderline guy was Demani Richardson, who is now in Carolina as a UDFA.

Since last night, two more Aggie players have found new homes as undrafted free agents. First Earnest Crownover agreed to terms with the Saints.

Crownover mostly played fullback for the Aggies, but he looked good on the few carries he did get. An underrated aspect of his game that Petrino sometimes utilized this past season was his ability to receive the ball out of the backfield, which garnered him two touchdowns over the course of 2023.

The other player to agree to terms with a team was punter Nik Constantinou, who is headed to Denver.

Constantiou had a rough 2023, but he has shown really impressive ability in the past. Hopefully he can shake off whatever issues he had this past year and boom some punts up at altitude—we've all seen the Aussie's big leg come through for the Aggies more than a couple of times.

Congrats to both Earnest and Nik! Here's hoping they find a lot of success at their respective stops.
