Two Kansas State Wildcats seniors will have an opportunity to play in the Senior Bowl this season, as linebacker Arthur Brown and wide receiver Chris Harper will play for the North team in the annual collegiate all-star game.
The Senior Bowl should give Brown and Harper plenty of exposure to NFL personnel and a chance to highlight their skills. The two teams are coached by football staffs from two NFL teams, and over 800 scouts, coaches and front office personal will attend the event.
Harper and Brown are the first pair of teammates representing Kansas State in the Senior Bowl since 2003. The Wildcats have sent 41 players overall to the All-Star game.
Both Harper and Brown are expected to be selected during the NFL Draft. Brown is currently slotted as a second-round pick, while Harper is expected to go sometime in the fourth or fifth round. A strong performance at the Senior Bowl could help improve their draft position.
