The other day the Jacksonville Jaguars reached verbal agreements with 18 undrafted free agents. They are from programs like Nebraska, Colorado and Wheaton College.
Yes, there was a contract for Pete Ittersagen, the 5-foot-10-inch cornerback out of Wheaton North and Wheaton College. The Division III All-American finished his career with 60 passes broken up, which is fifth all-time on that level, and also distinguished himself as a return specialist. If you can add value on special teams, you increase your odds of making an NFL roster.
Ittersagen is hoping to join Andy Studebaker on the NFL level. Studebaker, another Wheaton College product, is a defensive end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
