Best Wildcats to Play in the NFL – Number 2: Larry Brown
NFL running back from 1969-1976
Larry Brown comes in at number two on this list, as he had a magnificent NFL career with the Washington Redskins.
Brown attended Kansas State in the late 1960s and was an eighth-round draft pick by Washington in the 1969 NFL Draft. He spent his entire eight-year career with Washington and made it to four Pro Bowls during his time there.
The guy was a dominant running back in the NFL, averaging over 100 yards per game during the 1972 season.
Brown rushed for over 1,000 yards in a season twice with the Redskins, once in 1970 and again in 1972. He never had more than eight touchdowns in a season, but the guy was a dominant running back in the NFL, averaging over 100 yards per game during the 1972 season.
His final numbers in the NFL consisted of 5,875 rushing yards, 2,485 receiving yards, 35 rushing touchdowns, and 20 receiving touchdowns.
Unfortunately, Larry Brown’s career ended sooner than he’d hoped due to injuries, but he ran his way into the record books for Washington, and is easily one of the best K-State football alum to play in the National Football League.
There’s only guy who was better than him though. Who was it?
