While offensive line teammate T.J. Clemmings was taken in the NFL Draft on Saturday, Matt Rotheram wasn't quite as fortunate. Rotheram will still get his shot to play in the league, though, as a member of the Green Bay Packers.
On Saturday, Rotheram tweeted out that he has signed with the team as an undrafted free agent:

Like Clemmings, Rotheram has an excellent frame to play as a pro. At 6'6" and 335 pounds, he's every bit as big. Rotheram also has even more experience having started three consecutive seasons. And while he has been a guard the past two years, that experience includes playing tackle in his sophomore season.
Coaches selected him as a second team All-ACC performer while the media put him on the third team. Rotheram also won the ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week award once this past year when Pitt rushed for more than 400 yards against Delaware.
