Miller Forristall and Carl Tucker were not taken in the NFL Draft, but both have signed free agent contracts.

As rookie minicamps have started in the National Football League, Forristall signed his tender with the Tennessee Titans and Tucker signed his for the Miami Dolphins. Forristall, a native of Cartersville, Ga., recorded five touchdowns in his career at the University of Alabama as a tight end. He was on the receiving end of four scores in 2019 and improved as a blocker.

Injuries kept him from being successful for the Crimson Tide, but he secured a national championship ring. He was a tight end in college; however, Tucker will be a fullback in the pros. He possesses the toughness to be solid at the next level.
