After final cuts for NFL teams on Friday, the total number of Kansas State Wildcats in the NFL reached 16 as two rookies made final rosters despite not being highly-touted draft selections.
Eagles seventh-round pick and running back Bryce Brown managed to stick on Philly's active roster, while undrafted safety Tysyn Hartman earned a spot on the roster of the Kansas City Chiefs. Hartman is the second K-State alum on the Chiefs, joining Ryan Lilja, a former undrafted free agent himself.
Other notable K-State alumni are Saints running back Darren Sproles and Bengals cornerback Terence Newman. A two-time Pro Bowler, Newman is the most tenured of the Wildcats' alumni in the NFL, entering season his 11th season at defensive back. Sproles had a career-high seven receiving touchdowns in 2011.
