12:53 PM ET 04.28 | Former Oklahoma safety Tony Jefferson has signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent, according to the player on Twitter. Jefferson wrote in the tweet that he's going to "do it for the non-believers," meaning that he wants to show all of the teams that passed up on him that they made a mistake. Jefferson was projected by most to go anywhere from the late third to the early fifth round, so his going undrafted was a surprise. This year saw an uncharacteristically strong safety class, in which 21 players at the position were drafted, so it's easy to see how Jefferson was lost in the shuffle.
