While K-State football has had players drafted into the NFL for 23 straight years, that doesn’t necessarily mean those players have gone on to do much.
One of the only real impact players on this list, oddly enough, is the guy who was just recently drafted. Cody Whitehair might only have one season of experience on his belt, but he appears to be poised for a nice pro career.

The other big time playmaker is Tyler Lockett, who has shown he has a knack for returning the football on special teams. Lockett had the chops to be a legit receiver in college and he’s continuing to make his alma mater proud at the pro level.
Looking at the 2017 NFL Draft prospects, K-State has three potential guys who join the ranks of their former teammates. They’re all defensive guys, which isn’t surprising considering how great KSU normally is on defense.
In case you’re wondering, these players are Elijah Lee, Charmeachealle Moore, and Jordan Willis. Willis was projected to go to the Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth round of KC Kingdom’s most recent mock draft.
Hopefully if these Cats do hear their names called, they’ll go on to make a big impact in the NFL.
