Chris Vaughn (Louisville) and Bobby Abare (Yale) sign deals

Matt Shaughnessy of Norwich, a defensive end at Wisconsin, and Terrence Knighton of Windsor, a defensive end at Temple, were the only players with Connecticut ties drafted today. Shaughnessy went to Oakland in the third round (71st overall), and Knighton went to Jacksonville with the very next pick.

Some happenings after the draft. New Haven resident Chris Vaughn, who played wide receiver at Louisville, signed a free agent deal with New Orleans. Yale linebacker Bobby Abare signed with Kansas City.

One more. Windsor's Chris Baker, a defensive tackle at Hampton University in Virginia, signed a free agent deal with Denver.

Should hear where Julius Williams signed soon. Waiting on other UConn guys, too.

The Saints got a steal in Vaughn who is the biggest sleeper of any drafted or undrafted player.
