The Packers select former Toledo walk-on corner back Ka'dar Hollman with a pick in the sixth round.

Cody Thompson signs as an undrafted free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs. Thompson - a wide receiver from Huron, Ohio - missed the 2017 season with Toledo after breaking his fibula.

"Nothing in my life has been given to me," Thompson told 13abc. "So I just gotta go out there and earn another spot, another opportunity and show the rest of the league what they missed out on."

Southview graduate Nate Hall signs with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent. Hall was an All-Big Ten Conference Honorable Mention selection as a senior with Northwestern.

Joining Hall in North Texas as an undrafted free agent is former Rockets wide receiver Jon'Vea Johnson. Johnson was a third-team All-Mid American Conference selection and his dad played four years in the NFL.

Defensive tackle Reggie Howard inks his own undrafted free agent deal with the San Diego Chargers. Howard - a defensive tackle - led the Rockets with 15 tackles for a loss in 2018.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers seize two players from Northwest Ohio as undrafted free agents. Brock Ruble - a right tackle from the Rockets - returns home to Florida after transferring to Toledo from Florida State. While long snapper Dan Godsil from Ottawa-Glandorf High School joins Ruble in Tampa. Godsil snapped all four years at Indiana.

Bedford High School graduate Jeremiah Harris signs as an undrafted free agent with the New York Giants. Harris was a two-time captain and third team All-Mid American Conference selection last season at Eastern Michigan.
