Chiefs Select Braden Wilson In The Sixth Round Of The 2013 NFL Draft

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Kansas State FB Braden Williams with their second pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Wilson is the fifth offensive player to be selected by the Chiefs in this draft. He joins LT Eric Fisher, TE Travis Kelce, RB Knile Davis and C Eric Kush, who have already heard their names called.

Wilson is listed at 6-3, 251.

Here is some intel on Wilson from NFL.com:

Wilson redshirted in 2008, before seeing action in all 12 of the games the Wildcats played in 2009. He earned four starts on the season. In 2010, Wilson spent his time blocking for current Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas. Wilson played in all 13 games and logged 11 starts. His blocking helped Thomas to ninth in the nation in rushing yards and tops in the Big 12. Wilson himself contributed one rushing touchdown. In 2011, Wilson played in every game, and had five carries for 15 yards. He also caught two passes for 14 yards. This past season, Wilson played in all 13 games, and had six carries for 13 yards and a touchdown. He also caught five passes for 34 yards.

The Chiefs seem to be putting a big emphasis on blockers in this draft. LT, TE, C and now a FB have all been targets.

What do you think, Addicts? Did the Chiefs get good value with Wilson?

    The team has placed an emphasis on running the ball. DiMarco was a LOAD last year as this team’s fullback. Wilson will probably be someone they’ll try to retain on the Practice Squad.

    Look what Priest Holmes did behind a pure FB. I like this pick.

  • Roger Mihalko

    who knows…ok. Hell take one of these FB’s and make him a Running back so we again have the Thunder and Lightning approach. Make this kid the Thunder to JC’s lightning.

    I always wondered if we should take on of these 6.5 260lb TE and do the same, make them a Full time runing back, Thunder and lightning.

    Anyway draft done, see ya all at OTA’s and ST!!!

    GO GHIEFS!!!!!
