The Wildcats' best player last year went undrafted.
QB Collin Klein, Houston Texans
Last year, Klein was undoubtedly the Wildcats' best player and finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting.
All of his accolades didn't transfer into quality draft stock, though, as his questionable throwing mechanics kept him from being drafted.
Klein ended up signing a UFA contract with the Houston Texans.
The Texans signed Klein as a quarterback, not a tight end or wide receiver, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Whether Klein makes it to training camp as a QB remains up in the air.
But for the time being, Klein is an NFL quarterback. And he certainly deserves that after being one of the nation's best players in college over the past two seasons.
LB Justin Tuggle, Houston Texans
Tuggle, who was part of the linebacking corps that included Arthur Brown, will join Klein in Houston as another UFA.
Tuggle wasn't overly impressive at Kansas State, but he wasn't bad, either. He played a key role in one of the best linebacker groups in the nation.
At 6'3" and 237 pounds, Tuggle certainly has the build of an NFL linebacker. He'll be granted a fair shot at making the Texans roster.
P Ryan Doerr, Denver Broncos
Whenever the Wildcats' offense stalled out last season, Doerr could be relied on to flip the field position and give his defense a more favorable situation.
Doerr was one of the best punters in the country last year, and was very underrated for his efforts.
It's unlikely that he'll unseat Britton Colquitt, who signed his free agent tender with the Broncos, from the starting job. But you never know.
RB Angelo Pease, Green Bay Packers
Pease was the third option in the running attack behind Klein and John Hubert last season.
His stats weren't impressive by any means, but he was still a quality back for the Wildcats. He had an impressive pro day, though, and he'll certainly be given a look by the Packers, who are one of the best teams in the league at developing rookies.
TE Travis Tannahill, Cleveland Browns
Tannahill was part of an overhaul of 16 UFA's that the Browns signed. And he may be the best of them all.
Last season, Tannahill was a consistent target in the passing game for Klein and was also an excellent blocker.
At 6'3" and 253 pounds, he's got good size for a tight end in the pros. Tannahill could end up being possibly the best of the UFA's that the Wildcats produced this year.
CB Nigel Malone, Indianapolis Colts
Malone was one of the best defensive backs in the Big 12 over the past two years.
During his time as a Wildcat, Malone totalled 12 interceptions and shut down some of the best receivers in a pass-friendly league.
But his size is what did him in when it came to being drafted. Malone is simply too small at 5'10" and 180 pounds.
However, Malone is a driven player who is extremely competitive. He could be a dark horse to make the Colts' final roster.
