2019 NFL Draft: CPA’s Paul Adams, Centennial’s Tyrel Dodson sign UDFA contracts

Two more Williamson County football alums have started to make their NFL dreams a reality.

Christ Presbyterian Academy offensive lineman Paul Adams (Missouri) and Centennial linebacker Tyrel Dodson (Texas A&M) will be headed to play professionally as undrafted free agents.

They join former Brentwood Academy quarterback and Ole Miss tight end Dawson Knox (Buffalo Bills) and former Centennial and Missouri wide receiver Emanuel Hall (Chicago Bears) as new NFL players.

Adams will be joining the New York Giants (per the KC Star‘s Alex Schiffer), while Dodson will be meeting up with Knox and the Buffalo Bills (per NFL draft reporter Jared Stanger).

Dodson announced the signing on his Instagram.

“If you know me, you know it’s beautiful in the struggle,” Dodson wrote.

“I made it out of my environment, I took the different route. High school, I was never highly recruited but it took one coach. One team to believe in me, thank you Coach John Chavis [formerly of Texas A&M]. I came in I put in the work, I became a star. Once again, same story different opportunity! BILLS MAFIA.”

Adams’ aunt shared a photo of him smiling, confirming the news he was New York-bound.

He’ll join a fellow middle Tennessee offensive lineman in Spencer Pulley, who played at Vanderbilt and is with the Giants now as a center.

“Excited for a new opportunity for to shine!,” Adams’ CPA coach Ingle Martin shared on Twitter at the news. “We are all pulling for you!”

Franklin and Missouri punter Corey Fatony will await to hear if he gets signed as a UDFA or a rookie minicamp invite.
