Notre Dame’s only all-conference cornerback finds new NFL home

·1 min read

Quick: who is the only cornerback in Notre Dame history to be named to an all conference team as a member of the Fighting Irish?

Answer: Nick McCloud, who was an All-ACC Third-Team selection in his one season at Notre Dame in 2020.

Despite a blazing 40-yard dash at his pro day McCloud went undrafted this past spring before being signed as a free agent by the Buffalo Bills.

McCloud was cut by Buffalo on Tuesday but was claimed by the Cincinnati Bengals Wednesday, a move that will place him on the active roster. McCloud is one of 40 former Notre Dame players to make an NFL roster entering the 2021 season.
