Arthur Brown could be the replacement for the multi-pro bowler Ray Lewis. Brown was selected in the 2nd round by the Baltimore Ravens with the 57th pick overall. Brown recorded 201 tackles in two seasons at K-State after playing his first two years at Miami.
The Seattle Seahawks used their first pick of a scheduled 10 selections on the final day of the NFL draft to take Kansas State wide receiver Chris Harper in the fourth round.
Despite the offseason trade for Percy Harvin, Seattle still felt the need to address the wide receiver position. Harper will join a crowded receiver corps for Seattle with Harvin, Sidney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin all returning and all are significant contributors.
Harper led Kansas State in receiving each of his final two years at the school. As a senior, Harper caught 58 passes for 857 yards and three touchdowns
Kansas State fullback Braden Wilson will have a chance to play in front of friends and family after getting drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the sixth round Saturday.
The 6-foot-4, 251-pound Wilson helped to protect Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein last year for the Wildcats, who surprised just about everyone by winning the Big 12 championship.
It’s unclear how the fullback will factor into new coach Andy Reid’s offensive in Kansas City, or whether he might be converted to a tight end. The only other fullbacks on the Chiefs roster are Patrick DiMarco and Ryan D’Imperio.
Wilson is from Smith Center, Kan.
