Kansas State Wildcats are a regular part of the annual NFL Draft.

In fact, K-State has had at least one player drafted in each of the last 21 seasons, the longest active streak in the Big 12 Conference.

Since the formation of the Big 12 in 1996, 48 different Wildcats have heard their names called on draft day, ranking Kansas State among the Big 12 leaders in number of players taken in the NFL Draft.

Under the direction of head coach Bill Snyder, K-State has sent a total of 117 players to the NFL as either draft picks or free agents.

K-State also regularly hosts NFL scouts at its games and practices and also hosts a spring NFL pro day, which each year brings a large number of NFL representatives to the K-State campus, including scouts, coaches and general managers.
