Looks like he made Cardinals rookie camp!
invited as TE, has not made camp.
Saw on Twitter that Arkansas Basketball had more players drafted than Texas .
In NFL draft.
The Cleveland Browns signed former Texas Tech power forward Marcus Santos-Silva to play tight end, the team announced Monday.
Santos-Silva, 6-foot-7, 250 pounds, spent the past two seasons with the Texas Tech basketball team. He was an All-Big 12 honorable mention in 2022 after posting 4.7 points and 4.1 rebounds per game and leading the Red Raiders with 29 blocks.
Prior to joining Texas Tech, Santo-Silvia spent three seasons with VCU. He finished his college career with 1,244 points and 957 rebounds.

Realistic chances of making the team?
Zac Jackson, Browns beat writer: It’s going to be tough for a number of the Browns’ nine draft picks to make the active roster, so Santos-Silva is almost certainly headed for the practice squad. Santos-Silva hasn’t played football since his freshman year of high school, but the Browns think he’s worth developing because of his size and athleticism. There’s a shortage of tight ends league-wide, and the Browns have two they trust for now in David Njoku and Harrison Bryant. They’ll hope Santos-Silva can make some progress and potentially be good enough to crack the active roster.
Former Hog DB Darius Vinnett is a scout for Arizona.
I would have thought with Wade’s size and speed maybe a wideout. We’ll see I hope the best for him.
6-6 220 is not generally WR size in the NFL. There have only been two NFL WRs in history that were 6-6 or more, and one of them only lasted two seasons. The other was Harold Carmichael of the Eagles, who was 6-8.
I was thinking of some of the taller ones like Moss and with Wade playing basketball his jumping ability and speed could be difficult to cover. Hopefully he can pick up the blocking required of a TE.
