K-State football has seen many of their alumni make it to the NFL and do great things there. Who will join that list in the 2018 NFL Draft?

Football season is still five or six months away for the Kansas State Wildcats, but they should see a few of their distinguished players from over the past few years make it into the NFL later this month. That’s the dream when these guys commit to Kansas State and now hopefully they’ll be able to make it into the pros.

According to NFL.com, there are four K-State football players who have a good chance of getting drafted, or at least making it with a team by the end of that weekend. Surprisingly, two of them are on special teams, while one is on offense and one is a defensive player.

So, who are the four Wildcats who have a good shot at going pro? Let’s take a look.


Long snappers don’t get a lot of love, especially when it comes to the NFL Draft. That’s not surprising when you look at what their role is and how many are out there on the market.

Drew Scott, however, could be a late round draft pick, though it’s more likely that he goes undrafted and gets signed by a team later on. Scott walked on at K-State in 2013 and started some games in 2014, but then took a back seat until the 2016 season.

His final two seasons resulted in him playing in 26 games with limited snapping mistakes and also recording a few tackles on special teams. What will likely hurt Scott is that he might not be big enough to make it as a professional long snapper.

It’d be cool to see Drew Scott land with a team, but more than likely, he’ll have to wait until after the NFL Draft to find a home somewhere.
