Kansas State Football NFL Draft Streak - 2012 Draft

The Kansas State football NFL draft streak continued in 2012 when running back Bryce Brown was selected in the 7th round, number 229 overall, by the Philadelphia Eagles.  The streak almost ended this year not only because Bryce was drafted near the very end of the draft, but he left school during the 2011 football season and declared early for the draft.  If he hadn't left school, no K-State player would have been drafted in 2012.

Bryce played four years in the NFL, playing in 42 games and starting seven of them.  He played two years for the Eagles, who then traded him to the Buffalo Bills in 2014.  He played one year for the Bills, who released him after one season, and he was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks, where he played for one season.

His best year in the NFL was his rookie year in 2012, when he rushed for 564 yards and four touchdowns.  His NFL stats are below:

I'm not sure what Bryce has been up to since the Seahawks cut him in 2015.  Can't really find anything online about him since that time.  If you'd like to relive the drama about the Brown brothers and their recruitment to numerous schools over the years, there's a pretty good write up about it on his Wiki page.

Up next I'll take a look at the 2013 draft.
