Another former James Madison football player will get his shot at making an NFL roster, and a sixth could soon get his opportunity.
According to his agent, Douglas Eldridge, wide receiver Rockeed McCarter has agreed to attend rookie mini-camp with the Denver Broncos later this week.
"We at (DLE Sports Management) are very proud of Rock," Eldridge said in an e-mail, "and are certain that he will capitalize on this opportunity next weekend and become the newest member of a rebuilding franchise on the rise."
Eldridge, a 2000 JMU graduate, also represents defensive lineman Sam Daniels. He said Daniels has a list of six teams that have made workout/camp invitation offers, but has yet to reach a decision.
McCarter joins tight end Mike Caussin (Jaguars) and offensive lineman Dorian Brooks (Steelers) as former JMU players who will attend NFL rookie camps after not being selected in this past weekend's NFL Draft.
Two other former Dukes, defensive end/linebacker Arthur Moats (Bills) and kick returner/cornerback Scotty McGee (Jaguars), were taken in Round 6 of the draft.
