NFL Draft: One K-Stater Drafted, Two Sign FA Contracts


At least three former Wildcats (David Garrett also may sign a free agent contract with someone) will open training camp with an NFL team. The only Wildcat drafted–if you can even call him a Wildcat, given his extremely insignificant contributions to the team–was Bryce Brown, who was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles. Bob Wankel, with Inside the Iggles, offers his analysis of the pick.

The two players who have signed free agent contracts were actually contributors for the Wildcats: Tysyn Hartman and Emmanuel Lamur. Hartman signed with Kansas City Chiefs, while Lamur signed a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals. Tysyn’s signing is mentioned briefly in FanSided’s Chief blog’s Arrowhead Addict Undrafted Free Agent Tracker, and the Topeka Capital-Journal has some discussion of both he and Lamur’s signings, as well as that of Washburn alum Brian Folkerts. FanSided’s Bengals blog confirms Lamur’s signing as well.

Keep an eye on David Garrett now, as he will probably be the next Wildcat to sign a free agent contract with an NFL team. Kellis Robinett mentioned Garrett (along with Hartman) as potential late-round draft picks for the Cats, so it’s safe to assume that if Garrett wants to play in the NFL, he will at least get a shot in someone’s training camp.
