Stanford linebacker Chase Thomas was among 13 undrafted free agents who agreed to rookie contracts with the New Orlean Saints on Sunday.
While Thomas went undrafted, three Cardinal teammates were selected during the NFL Draft.
Stanford tight end Levine Toilolo was selected by the Atlanta Falcons with the 36th pick (133rd overall) of the fourth round on Saturday.
Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the seventh pick (140th overall) of the fifth round of the draft.
Toilolo's selection made him the second Cardinal tight end taken in the draft.
Zach Ertz was taken by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round on Friday.
Toilolo becomes the seventh Cardinal tight end in the NFL, joining Ertz, Coby Fleener (Indianapolis), Jim Dray (Arizona), Konrad Reuland (N.Y. Jets), Evan Moore (Philadelphia) and Alex Smith (Cincinnati).
"I'm beyond excited right now. I'm looking forward to being a part of the Falcons organization," said Toilolo from his family's home in San Diego. "I'll be able to learn from Tony Gonzalez, a future Hall of Famer and one of the best to ever play the position in the game. I can't wait to get out there to Atlanta, get to work and be a part of this team."
Toilolo (6-8, 285) started 14 games and was a valuable asset as both a blocker and pass-catcher. He totaled 393 yards and four touchdowns on 24 receptions last fall, leading all Stanford receivers with 16.4 yards per catch.
All four of his touchdown receptions were inside the red zone. With the NFL featuring matchups in key situations, Toilolo is projected to be a key target in those same situations at the next level.
Toilolo is the fifth Stanford tight end to be drafted in the past nine years, joining Ertz, Fleener (Indianapolis/2012/2nd), Dray (Arizona/2010/7th) and Smith (Tampa Bay/ 2005/3rd).
Toilolo becomes the first Stanford player drafted by Atlanta in 20 years when outside linebacker Ron George was selected in the fifth round of the 1993 draft.
"It's a blessing to be a part of the Arizona Cardinals' (organization)," said Taylor. "This is the perfect situation for me. I want to thank the Stanford family for the last four years, all of their support and best wishes."
Stanford's career rushing leader with 4,300 yards on a school-record 823 carries, Taylor was productive throughout his career. He has 40 career rushing touchdowns (tied for second in school history) and 45 total touchdowns (tied for first).
In 2012, Taylor became the first Stanford player to record three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons. He had some of his biggest games under the national spotlight.
Taylor ran for 88 yards and a touchdown against Wisconsin in a Rose Bowl Game victory; he rushed 33 times for 161 yards in an overtime win at No. 1 Oregon, the eighth-most carries ever by a Stanford back in a single game.
In another spotlight game Taylor gained 153 yards and a touchdown with another 60 yards through the air and a TD in a win over No. 2 USC. His 213 offensive yards against the Trojans was a career-high.
Taylor collected 1,530 rushing yards in 2012, the second-highest in school history with 13 rushing touchdowns.
He added 287 yards and two more scores on 41 receptions out of the backfield and had eight 100-yard rushing performances on the season.
"Congrats to Stepfan Taylor and the Stanford Cardinal for making Stepfan into what he is today," said Taylor's alter-ego Kulabafi. "Now KULABAFI has to make his way to the Desert and hopes that everybody can understand that."
The last Stanford player selected by Arizona was tight end Jim Dray, chosen in the seventh round of the 2010 draft.
Stanford's 2013 Draft class finished their Cardinal careers with three straight BCS bowl games and a 25-2 record at Stanford Stadium.
