Examining the all-time Bill Snyder team for Kansas State football

College Football Hall of Fame coach Bill Snyder had two stints at Kansas State and goes down as a legend at the school. So what would an all-time Bill Snyder team look like?

Wide Receivers

Tyler Lockett

Kansas State career: 2011-2014
Receiving yards: 3,710 yards
Receiving touchdowns: 29 touchdowns
Rushing yards: 192 yards
Rushing touchdowns: 0 touchdowns

Tyler Lockett had a very successful career at Kansas State and came in as a legacy. His dad Kevin Lockett and uncle Aaron Lockett paved the way for Tyler to come in and be a star at K-State. He did just that after the Seattle Seahawks drafted his senior year. Lockett is still playing with the Seahawks and is part of a one-two-punch wide receiver duo with DK Metcalf.

Jordy Nelson

Kansas State career: 2005-2007
Receiving yards: 2,822 yards
Receiving touchdowns: 20 touchdowns
Rushing yards: -9 yards
Rushing touchdowns: 0 touchdowns

It is still so hard for me to believe that Jordy Nelson started as a walk-on at Kansas State. Nelson only played three seasons at Kansas State before he was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 2008. The All-Pro NFL receiver won a Super Bowl with the Packers and won Comeback Player of the Year in 2016. Nelson made a move to Oakland to play with the Raiders in his final season before retiring in 2018.
