Only one Vanderbilt Commodores player was selected in the NFL Draft, but several more have signed undrafted free agent deals. Spencer Pulley, a fifth-year senior from Germantown, TN, has reportedly agreed to a deal with the San Diego Chargers.
Pulley, a 6'4", 300-pound offensive lineman who started at center for the Commodores in 2015 but previously was a starter at right guard, played as a true freshman in 2011 before being granted a medical hardship and redshirting in 2012. He ended his career starting 37 consecutive games from 2013-15 on the Vanderbilt offensive line. His versatility and ability to play both center and guard could help him make the Chargers' roster as a backup lineman. Pulley also notched 35 pancake blocks in 2015.
Vanderbilt's offensive line will have to be retooled a bit in 2016 with Pulley and Jake Bernstein moving on, but the Commodores should get a boost from Andrew Jelks returning from injury. We at Anchor of Gold wish Spencer the best as he begins his pro career.
