STEVE STENSTROM – Fourth Round Pick (134th Overall) in 1995 NFL Draft
Two years before the Pat Barnes pick came the Steve Stenstrom pick. He was Kansas City’s fourth round pick in the 1995 NFL Draft.
Stenstrom played college football at Stanford, where he was highly thought of and still holds some records. When the Chiefs took him in the fourth round, it seemed like a pick that could actually end up working out.
Instead, Stenstrom only spent the 1995 season on the Chiefs practice squad and then moved onto Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, and Denver. Stenstrom actually started ten games in the NFL (seven with the Bears, three with the Niners) and threw four touchdowns to 12 interceptions during his NFL appearances.
With Steve Bono and Rich Gannon on the roster in 1995, there really wasn’t a legitimate shot for Stenstrom to see the field. He’s still one of the more successful picks in this draft though, considering he actually started games… even if they weren’t for the team that drafted him.
