BRADEN WILSON (Sixth-Round Pick, 204th Overall in 2013 NFL Draft)

Arguably the biggest bust for the Kansas State Wildcats as far as pursuing NFL dreams goes is Braden Wilson, who only spent a few months trying to make that dream happen.

Wilson was a four-year starter for the Wildcats at the fullback position and was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

It was John Dorsey‘s first year as general manager in Kansas City and this was a badly missed pick for the Chiefs. Wilson was cut by the Chiefs before the final preseason game even took place and hasn’t been heard from again when it comes to football.

Perhaps the Chiefs were looking to build depth behind Anthony Sherman at the fullback spot, but the Braden Wilson era was never to be in Kansas City.

At least the Chiefs went out and drafted a local guy. That was kind of them.
