Despite not hearing his name called during the 2018 NFL Draft former Louisville offensive lineman Lukayus McNeil will still get a chance to earn an NFL roster spot.
Shortly after the draft ended on Saturday McNeil sent out a Tweet indicating that he’s signed with the Oakland Raiders.

McNeil started nearly every game of his Cardinal career and was named a team captain in 2018.
It’s unclear what type of contract McNeil has signed with Oakland as they’ve yet to make an official announcement. This could be either a standard undrafted free agent contract or a rookie mini-camp deal.
Good luck, Lukayus!<
