The NFL Draft is over, and the real madness has begun.

Two Utes were drafted this year: Cornerback Keith McGill was taken in the fourth round by the Oakland Raiders, and linebacker Trevor Reilly hung around until the New York Jets picked him in the seventh. But many more former Utah players are being signed as undrafted free agents.

Here's a running list — to be updated throughout the day, of where guys are going:

TE Jake Murphy • Expected by many to be drafted, the 24-year-old tight end declared for the draft a year early and wound up signing with the Oakland Raiders. He confirmed the move on Twitter.

DT Tenny Palepoi • The big tackle out of Snow has agreed to terms with the San Diego Chargers.

TE Anthony Denham • The tight end's agent confirmed he will go to the Houston Texans, joining Utah native Xavier Su'a Filo.

FB Karl Williams • The former walk-on confirmed to the Tribune that he has agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders, joining McGill.

OL Vincent Jones • The offensive lineman, named honorable mention All-Pac 12 in his lone season at center last year, will be attending minicamp with the Kansas City Chiefs, says agent David Canter.

DT L.T. Tuipolutu • The Green Bay Packers invited Tuipolutu to next week's rookie camp for a tryout.
