NFL: Green Bay Packers-OTA USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin

While the Washington State Cougars may be deep into the off-season, those that graduated and were fortunate enough to sign with an NFL team will begin their mandatory mini-camps with their respective teams today and will continue for the next three days. There are four teams that have already completed their mandatory mini-camps; Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, and the New England Patriots had theirs last week.

Both Luke Falk and Cole Madison, who were the only two Cougars taken in the 2018 NFL Draft, will start today with the Tennessee Titans and the Green Bay Packers. Other players like Daniel Ekuale (Cleveland Browns) and Frankie Luvu (New York Jets) will report to their respective teams today too after signing as undrafted free agents. This wont be the first time they will get to don their teams colors however as they attended rookie mini-camp right after the NFL Draft was completed earlier this season.

Hercules Mata’afa signed with the Minnesota Vikings earlier this year as an undrafted free agent as well but bad news came from his camp last week when it was announced that he had torn his ACL. The injury will likely hold him out for the year but the Vikings have said that they like him and will stick with him after his injury heals.

The mini-camp will last for three days and will be the last time until July that they will be required to be together as a team.

Five other players were invited to tryouts earlier this year but it is not known yet if they will be in attendance today with those teams. Cody O’Connell (Indianapolis Colts), Jamal Morrow (Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Gerard Wicks (New Orleans Saints), Erik Powell (Houston Texans), and Dylan Hanser (Atlanta Falcons)
