Jermail Porter (born May 24, 1986) is former American football offensive lineman and former wrestler. He was last a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. Porter was not selected in the 2009 NFL Draft since he did not play college football. He was signed as a free agent by the New England Patriots on April 27, 2009.[1] He was later released, and in December 2009 signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.[2] Porter was waived in June 2010.

Porter was Kent State's first All-American wrestler since 1986. Just like Stephen Neal, Porter did not play organized football in any rank, especially college. Similar to Antonio Gates, Porter was a scholarship athlete in another sport for the Kent State Golden Flashes and did not play football.
