Former Mizzou punter Corey Fatony didn’t hear his name called during the 2019 NFL Draft, but two other punters were selected during the three-day event.
Still, the ex-Tiger will get his chance to make an NFL roster, as Mizzou announced that he had landed tryouts with a pair of squads.
As you can see below, Fatony will try out for both the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the coming weeks:

Fatony improved his punting average each of his four years in Columbia, starting with an average of 42.9 yards per punt back in 2015 and ending with 44.4 yards in 2018.
He was a popular guy at Mizzou, and we’ll see if he can win over an NFL team over the next month or so and land a roster spot.
