The Kansas City Chiefs added a familiar name to their 2013 NFL Draft class when they selected Kansas State FB Braden Wilson with the 204th in the sixth round.
Ever since we saw Tony Richardson leave town, the Chiefs haven’t been able to rely on a true fullback and they may have found it with this Wildcat. Wilson is built like a truck (6’3″, 251) and hits like one too.
In addition to being able to clear a path, Wilson is able to handle the ball if needed. During his time at Kansas State, the had 12 rushes for 44 yards, including two touchdowns. He also caught 18 passes for 147 yards (8.6 avg).
It’s not a sexy pick that will get a lot of fans excited, but you need guys like Wilson on the roster that are willing to do the dirty work. Not only in front of Jamaal Charles, but in front of Alex Smith.
