Georgia Tech football’s best pass catcher the last three seasons is moving onto the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams.

Georgia Tech football‘s Ricky Jeune finally found a home in the NFL late Saturday night, being one of the last Yellow Jackets to sign as an undrafted free agent. Jeune signed with the NFC’s Los Angeles Rams and will look to become the next wide receiver to make the transition from The Flats to the NFL.

For Jeune the transition to the NFL won’t be the easiest coming from an option offense to a pro-style though if the past is any indication it is possible. Demaryius Thomas was able to make the transition rather smoothly when he became a Denver Bronco in 2010, that being said Thomas was by the far the most talented Tech player since Calvin Johnson.

What Jeune will have going for him in the NFL is a strong ability to block. As most know, wide receivers blocking is integral to a successful option offense and Jeune was one of the best the Jackets had, if not the best. His strong ability to block will give him an edge over other undrafted hopefuls.

Stat wise, Jeune recorded 74 receptions in his career for 1,492-yards and 11-touchdowns. This past season he had 24-receptions for 520-yards and four touchdowns.

Jeune was the fifth Yellow Jacket on Saturday night to earn a chance at making an NFL roster. Freddie Burden, Corey Griffin, Antonio Simmons, and KeShun Freeman all signed a deal or were invited to a rookie minicamp on Saturday.
