Local Prospects Picked Up By NFL Teams

Former ECU players Willie Smith and Jonathan Williams agree to free agent deals along with former UNC and Southwest Onslow star Kendric Burney.

Willie Smith was picked up by the Washington Redskins. Smith is a 6'5, 305 lbs offensive tackle from ECU and was a two year starter for the Pirates. This past year Smith was a 1st Team Conference USA performer.

Jonathan Williams, who played his high school football at J.H. Rose in Greenville, will head to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Former UNC defensive back Kendric Burney will stay close to home with the Carolina Panthers. Burney is considered to be one of the most attractive non-drafted free agents on the market.

Official announcements by NFL teams on non-drafted free agents are expected sometime later on Tuesday.
