Jermail Porter (born May 24, 1986) is an 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. Similarly to Antonio Gates, Porter did not play football for the Kent State Golden Flashes, but an alternative sport before going to the NFL.

Porter's younger brother is Nick Cannon.
