GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida tight end Jake McGee went undrafted Saturday, but it didn’t take long for him to find an NFL team.
Minutes after the draft ended, McGee announced that he signed a free agent deal with the NFC champion Carolina Panthers.
McGee earned second team All-SEC honors from The Associated Press in 2015. He had the team’s second-most receptions, and 22 of his 41 catches resulted in a first down. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder finished with 381 receiving yards and a team-high four touchdowns.
“I think I’m a guy that can catch the football, move the chains and have a positive impact on the guys around him,” McGee said at Florida’s Pro Day.
