For the fifth time since 2000, no Arizona Wildcats football players’ names were called in the draft.

But almost the moment the 2015 NFL Draft was over, news of undrafted free agent signings started pouring in.

According to reports, receiver Austin Hill has signed with the Seattle Seahawks.

The 6-foot-3, 212-pound receiver finished his senior season with 49 receptions for 635 yards, ranking second and third on the team, respectively, and four touchdowns. His most notable of these may have been his hail-mary touchdown grab against Cal on Sept. 20, nicknamed “the Hill Mary.”

A torn ACL sidelined Hill for the 2013 season, but in 2012 he was a Biletnikoff Award semifinalist and received All-Pac-12 second-team honors after catching 81 passes for a team-high 1,364 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Hill’s father is two-time Pro-Bowler tight end David Hill, who played 12 seasons in the NFL with the Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Rams.

Arizona’s former starting left tackle, Mickey Baucus, has reportedly signed with the Miami Dolphins.

Right tackle Fabbians Ebbele agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers almost immediately following the draft.

Defensive end Dan Pettinato signed with Houston, becoming the fourth Wildcat in mere hours after the draft ended to sign a deal.

Receiver Tyler Slavin, who played for the Arizona Wildcats alongside Rams quarterback Nick Foles in 2010 and 2011, signed with St. Louis after spending his last two years of eligibility in Division-II ball in New Mexico.

Finally, center Steven Gurrola, who earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors last season, reportedly has an invite to try out at a Cleveland Browns minicamp next week.
