Arizona State offensive lineman Christian Westerman and wide receiver Devin Lucien both went during the final day of the NFL Draft. With the draft now over, other Sun Devils can now sign as undrafted free agents.

Here is a list of other ASU players that have joined NFL teams.

Mike Bercovici, QB

Former ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici has agreed to join the San Diego Chargers.

Bercovici passed for 3,855 yards and 30 touchdowns with nine interceptions in his only season as the starting quarterback for the Sun Devils. His 30 touchdowns tied the most in a single season in ASU history.

The Chargers already have quarterbacks Philip Rivers and Kellen Clemens on their roster.

D.J. Foster, RB-WR

Hybrid running back and wide receiver D.J. Foster is heading to another AFC team with a long-time quarterback.

Tom Brady and the Patriots will love Foster’s versatility; the former ASU player caught at least 59 passes in his last three seasons in Tempe — even as a running back in two of those years.

Entering his senior season in 2015, Foster was the only FBS player with 1,500 rushing and 1,500 receiving yards in his career.

To make room for the extremely promising duo of running backs Demario Richard and Kalen Ballage, Foster made a permanent move to wide receiver for his senior season. He had 59 catches for 584 yards and three touchdowns, but was still involved in the running game, rushing for 55 carries, 280 yards and one touchdown.

Foster joins fellow Sun Devil Devin Lucien in New England. The Patriots selected Lucien in the seventh-round of the NFL Draft.

Demetrius Cherry, DL

Defensive lineman Demetrius Cherry will join the Chip Kelly and the San Francisco 49ers.

Cherry appeared in 25 career games with the Sun Devils, tallying 37 tackles, three fumble recoveries and scoring one touchdown. Cherry joins a defensive line that drafted Oregon’s DeForest Buckner in the first round.

Antonio Longino, LB

The Cincinnati Bengals picked up linebacker Antonio Longino, who transferred to ASU following one year at Hutchinson Community College. Longino earned a starting role his junior season and never looked back. He ended that season with an outstanding 17-tackle performance in the Sun Bowl.

In his senior season, Longino was the team’s defensive MVP and an honorable mention for the All-Pac-12 team. His signature performance came against Washington, when Longino had seven total tackles, four for loss, two sacks and a pass breakup in the Sun Devils’ victory.

Gary Chambers, WR

Former wide receiver Gary Chambers has agreed to sign with the Buffalo Bills. Chambers appeared in all 13 games in 2015, finishing the season with 486 yards and two touchdowns.

Lloyd Carrington, CB

Cornerback Lloyd Carrington will join the Washington Redskins.

He amassed 53 total tackles, two for loss, a sack and an interception last season. His seven pass deflections were third behind cornerback Kweishi Brown and safety Kareem Orr.
