Four seniors from Team 133 will be joining NFC teams: linebacker Kenny Demens (Oak Park, Mich./Detroit Country Day) joined the Arizona Cardinals, offensive lineman Elliott Mealer (Wauseon, Ohio/Wauseon) inked a deal with the New Orleans Saints, offensive lineman Patrick Omameh (Columbus, Ohio/St. Francis DeSales) signed a contract with the San Francisco 49ers and defensive end Craig Roh (Scottsdale, Ariz./Chaparral) agreed to a free-agent deal with the Carolina Panthers.
Safety Jordan Kovacs (Curtice, Ohio/Clay) and wide receiver Roy Roundtree (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood-Madison) agreed to contracts with AFC teams. Kovacs signed with the Miami Dolphins, while Roundtree reached an agreement with the Cincinnati Bengals.
In all, eight members from last season's squad will be attending NFL camps.
