The 2024 NFL Draft is almost here and one of the biggest names Kansas Stat fans will be waiting to hear will be tight end Ben Sinnott. Sinnott chose to declare for the draft after his junior season, therefore cutting his college career short.

Ultimately, declaring for the NFL Draft is the best decision Sinnott could have made as the tight end class in the draft this year is not overwhelming with talent, therefore giving Sinnott an edge. The Iowa native is also being looked at to fill fullback positions with his stature and ability to block and run the ball.

So heading into the draft, Sinnott is coming in as the second-best tight end behind Georgia's Brock Bowers. In his career at Kansas State Sinnott caught 82 passes for 1,138 yards and 10 touchdowns. While he did not run the ball a lot in his time with the Wildcats, he did have three rushes for 12 yards and one touchdown. With his size and ability to push through defenders, Sinnott could be used well in short-yardage opportunities.

So which team could use Sinnott the most with the type of skills he has? Here are three teams that could be a potential landing spot for Sinnott in the upcoming draft.

The Kansas City Chiefs have a pretty full tight end room, but they could use Sinnott as a fullback in many ways. The Chiefs have not had a solid fullback for about two seasons after losing Anthony Sherman to retirement and Michael Burton to the Denver Broncos.

The Chiefs have a lot of talent at the running back position, but when it comes to getting short yardage, more times than not you see Andy Reid dialing up a trick play to try and pull one over on the defense. Typically with other teams, you see them running a tush push or handing the ball off to the fullback. With no fullback, the Chiefs run that play with another tight end, and Sinnott could become that player.

Andy Reid could choose to protect Noah Gray and Blake Bell and not use them anymore in quarterback sneaks or short-yardage downs. Coming in as a top fullback prospect, Sinnott could be used and be as successful as Sherman and Burton were for the Chiefs. Then of course over time, he could be used in the tight end rotation, especially if there are injuries.

Sinnott did have an official top-30 visit with the Chiefs in early April. There have been several Kansas State players to stay close to home and play for the Chiefs, most recently, Felix Anudike-Uzomah, who was the Chiefs' first-round pick in 2023. This could be a great place for Sinnott to grow, plus who wouldn't love to learn from Travis Kelce?
