2012 NFL Draft: Chiefs Select WR Junior Hemmingway At No. 238

With the No. 238 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Junior Hemingway, wide receiver from the Michigan Wolverines. The 6-foot-1, 225 pound Hemingway came into his own as a senior as the No. 1 pass-catching option in a run-first offense.

Hemingway, who finished his UM career with 88 receptions, 1,638 yards and 11 touchdowns, is the No. 36 ranked wide receiver in the draft according to Mocking The Draft's positional rankings.

Though he never displayed blazing speed during his time in college, Hemingway shows ideal body control and leaping ability, and routinely plays larger than his size. If given a realistic opportunity with the Chiefs, he should prove to be a serviceable NFL wideout down the line.

This was the Chiefs final pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
