Two Commodores got their names called in the 2012 NFL Draft, but they aren't the only Vanderbilt players who will be working to make it to the pros this summer. Vandy standouts Sean Richardson and Brandon Barden both signed with NFL teams as undrafted free agents following Saturday's draft, and three other players from 2011's Liberty Bowl squad earned tryouts in the big leagues.

Here's a breakdown of where Vanderbilt's departing seniors ended up:

Drafted: Round 2, Pick 62 - CB Casey Hayward, by the Green Bay Packers.

Drafted: Round 7, Pick 214 - DE/OLB Tim Fugger, by the Indianapolis Colts.

Signed as an undrafted free agent: S Sean Richardson, by the Green Bay Packers.

Signed as an undrafted free agent: TE Brandon Barden, by the Tennessee Titans.

Invited to tryouts as an undrafted free agent: QB Larry Smith, by the Dallas Cowboys.

Invited to tryouts as an undrafted free agent: OL Kyle Fischer, by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Invited to tryouts as an undrafted free agent: DL T.J. Greenstone, by the Chicago Bears.

Who do you think has the best shot amongst the undrafted players to make it to a NFL roster? Did we miss anyone? Let us know in the comments.
