There was plenty of star power in the Big 12 last season, and it translated to many players being selected to play on Sundays.
Six different programs had a player go in Round 1, with Iowa State's Will McDonald going to the Jets, Texas's Bijan Robinson off to Atlanta, TCU's Quentin Johnston to the Chargers, Texas Tech's Tyree Wilson to the Raiders, Oklahoma's Anton Harrison to the Jaguars, and Kansas State's Felix Anudike-Uzomah to the Chiefs.
Kansas State had many players get drafted in 2023. Corner Julius Brents was a 2nd round pick by the Colts, defensive back Josh Hayes was a 6th round pick to the Buccaneers, and running back Deuce Vaughn was also a 6th rounder to the Dallas Cowboys.
KSU also had quarterback Adrian Martinez sign with the Lions and wide reciever Kade Warner sign with Tampa Bay as undrafted free agents.
The Kansas Jayhawks didn't have anyone drafted for the first time in 3 years, but did have offensive tackle Earl Bostick Jr sign with the Dallas Cowboys, and edge rusher Lonnie Phelps sign with the Cleveland Browns.
