At the end of 6th Round Chiefs Draft A Fullback

With a compensatory selection they received at the end of the sixth round, the Chiefs selected Kanas State FB Braden Wilson with selection No. 204.

The 6-3½, 251-pound product of Smith Center, Kansas, saw the ball on a limited basis in the Wildcats offense with Ron Price and Bill Snyder. In 51 games, he carried the ball 21 times for 44 yards and 2 touchdowns, and he caught 18 passes for 144 yards.

His best season came in 2010 when he caught 7 passes for 63 yards and ran 7 times for 8 yards and a touchdown.

Wilson was invited to the NFL Combine and was timed in 4.78 seconds in the 40-yard dash, with 22 repetitions at 225 pounds in the bench press. At his Pro Day workout in Manhattan he had a vertical jump of 33 inches.

At Smith Center, Wilson was part of four consecutive undefeated seasons and state titles, running for 1,807 yards and 20 touchdowns as a senior.

    Interesting. A specialist fullback who is big and athletic, never carries the ball, but presumably knows how to pass-protect and lead-block for a running back. Whould’a thunk? Look forward to seeing if he makes the squad.

    In his picture he sure doesn’t look like he weighs 251 pounds. Looks like 220 tops.
