After seeing zero Illinois Fighting Illini taken during the 2014 NFL Draft, Illini fans have something to be excited about as Illinois tight end Evan Wilson announced via his Twitter account that he has signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent.

Wilson played four season for the Illinois Fighting Illini. His best season was his freshman season in Champaign, but Wilson gave the Illini quality performances in all four of his season with the team.
