The former Vanderbilt defensive lineman had three sacks and six tackles for loss despite only playing nine games in 2015.

Former Vanderbilt defensive lineman Caleb Azubike didn't hear his name called in the 2016 NFL Draft, but Azubike will get a chance to play in the NFL despite going undrafted.  The Dallas Cowboys have signed the former Commodore and Nashville McGavock star as an undrafted free agent.

Azubike missed three games in 2015, but still notched three sacks and six tackles for loss while playing defensive end in Vanderbilt's 3-4 defense.  As a junior in 2014, Azubike had four sacks and six tackles for loss in 11 games.  In Dallas, Azubike will have to adjust to playing in a more traditional 4-3.

Still, it's good to see an NFL team pick up Azubike.  There's no guarantee that Azubike will make the Cowboys out of the preseason, but he'll have a shot to make the team.  We wish Caleb the best as he embarks on his professional football career.
