Former Wolverine update: Raymon Taylor, Jeremy Gallon appear on NFL rookie mini-camp rosters

Former Wolverines Raymon Taylor and Jeremy Gallon appear on NFL rookie mini-camp rosters.

The 2015 NFL Draft has come and gone with three Wolverines selected in Devin Funchess (Carolina), Frank Clark (Seattle) and Jake Ryan (Green Bay).

Other Wolverine NFL hopefuls were left to sign UDFA deals such as Brennen Beyer (Baltimore), Devin Gardner (New England) and Delonte Hollowell (Detroit).

For the rest, there's always hope to make an impact during rookie mini-camps.

For one Wolverine in particular, even though he was selected in last years draft, there's another opportunity to make an impact.

Raymon Taylor

Former Michigan defensive back Raymon Taylor did not get drafted in this years draft. However, he has surfaced as a rookie mini-camp invite with the Houston Texans.

Scout.com's Texans affiliate broke down Taylor's play from the camp:

"Tryout players Le'Vander Liggins and Raymon Taylor had strong showings on day one from their secondary positions. Liggins, a cornerback, was very active in coverage, breaking up passes and covering Jaelen Strong with ease. Taylor, a safety, got his hands on passes intended for deep receivers and was one of the better looking safeties on the day. Most defensive backs will have to put together two more strong days in order for the Texans to offer them a contract."

Jeremy Gallon

UPDATE: Gallon has been waived by the Raiders due to injury. Its the second time in two seasons he has been waived by an NFL team due to injury.

Former wide receiver Jeremy Gallon, who was drafted in the seventh round by the New England Patriots, wasn't able to showcase his skills to the Patriots coaching staff due to injury and was later cut.

Now, heading into this season, it appears that Gallon has been invited to the Oakland Raiders rookie mini-camp.

Gallon will wear #16 for the Raiders.
