MATT BLUNDIN – Second Round Pick (40th Overall) in 1992 NFL Draft
Wow, a quarterback chosen in the second round! It happened for the Chiefs, back in 1992 when they selected Matt Blundin with the 40th overall pick.
Blundin spent his college football days at Virginia and at 6’7″, was a large quarterback just waiting for someone to take a chance on a guy with some height. The Chiefs took a gamble on him and it resulted in him appearing in two games for them.
In those two games, Blundin threw for 15 yards and two picks. He spent the 1992-1995 seasons with Kansas City, but then spent a year with the Scottish Claymores of the World League of American Football. He was Detroit’s third string quarterback in 1997 and threw one pass, which was picked off and returned for a touchdown.
The Matt Blundin Era was never one that panned out for the Chiefs, as they acquired Joe Montana in 1993 and the need for a young rookie to step in wasn’t really in the cards.
