Updated May 3, 2023 - 6:57 pm

Former UNLV defensive lineman Adam Plant was among nine undrafted free agents the Raiders signed Saturday after the conclusion of the NFL draft.

Plant, a former Bishop Gorman High star, had 55 tackles, seven sacks and three forced fumbles last season as a senior for the Rebels.

According to a scouting report by Pro Football Network, Plant, 6 feet, 5 inches and 260 pounds, “was a solid defensive player for UNLV and comes with an upside, but he must get stronger and stouter to have a place at the next level.”

The Raiders also signed:

— McClendon Curtis, offensive lineman, Chattanooga;

— Jaydon Grant, safety, Oregon State;

— Azizi Hearn, cornerback, UCLA;

— Brock Martin, defensive end, Oklahoma State;

— John Samuel Shenker, tight end, Auburn;

— George Tarlas, defensive end, Boise State;

— Drake Thomas, linebacker, North Carolina State;

— Dalton Wagner, offensive tackle, Arkansas.

Another former Rebel, linebacker Austin Ajiake, signed with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent.

Ajiake was a first-team All-Mountain West selection last season. His 132 tackles were fifth in the nation.
