DURANT, Okla. — Southeastern Oklahoma State’s Codey McElroy signed with the Los Angeles Rams as an undrafted free agent after the NFL draft ended on Saturday.
“I’m just really thankful for the opportunity they’ve given me,” McElroy said. “And I can’t wait to start working. I think it’s a really good place for me with my situation and I’m ready to see how it goes.”
McElroy, a 6-6, 255-pound native of Frederick, Okla., completed his eligibility this past fall and was an All-Great American Conference selection in his only season with the Savage Storm.
As a tight end, he hauled in 14 catches for 173 yards on the season, converting five of those grabs into touchdowns. He averaged 12.4 yards per catch and had a long reception of 42 yards for the year.
McElroy is the fourth player in Atterberry’s four-year tenure with the Storm to sign a pro contract, joining Franky Okafor (NFL and CFL), Raheem Wilson (GFL) and Kent London (CFL).
