Jeffcoat was originally predicted to be drafted somewhere in the middle rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft. However, neither he nor any other member of the Longhorns team was drafted that year, the first time since 1937 that no Longhorns were drafted.[6] Jeffcoat signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent.
