It was a successful NFL Draft weekend for the Michigan State Spartans as the school's five draft picks tied for eighth-most nationally.

  • Aaron Burbridge, WR: Round 6, Pick 213, San Francisco 49ers
  • Donavon Clark, G: Round 7, Pick 224, San Diego Chargers

The Spartans also had 10 players who will get a shot in the league after signing as undrafted free agents. They are:

  • Jack Allen, C: New Orleans Saints
