According to a press release, Anthony Chesley and Malcolm Williams both both received invites to rookie mini-camps with different NFL teams.

After signing an undrafted free agent contract, Chesley will report to the Bengal’s minicamp for a chance to play for Cincinatti and Williams will head to the Big Apple with a shot at getting on the New York Giants roster.

A three-year starter at defensive back for the Chants, Chesley played in 42 games for the Chanticleers, totaling 140 tackles, 5.5 tackles-for-loss, two interceptions and 23 pass breakups, the release stated.

Williams recorded four 100-plus receiving yard games at CCU, which ranks fourth all-time in Coastal history, and also set the CCU record and had the second-best, single-game effort in Sun Belt history with 266 receiving yards on nine receptions.

This past season, Williams posted a team-high 47 catches for 724 yards and five touchdown receptions to lead the receiving corps after leading the Chanticleers in receptions (43), receiving yards (793) and receiving touchdowns (seven) as a junior in 2017, according to the release.
