I think Rison went to Michigan State.

Ty Law went to Michigan. Probably a few more.

You are correct concerning Rison I don't watch the college game that much. Thought when he was a Chief with Grbac someone mentioned they both went to Michigan. Don't wanna embarrass myself in front of this Michigan grad.

Was Trezelle Jenkins the worst Chiefs draft pick of all time? I know this is an extremely fertile category, but it's hard to imagine anybody being worse than he was.

Todd Blackledge.

In 20 years, Sims may be considered to be the worst ever.

Not a chance. At least he saw the field.

He didnt ask who we drafted from Michigan, just who played for the Chiefs from there.

Jenkins is the worst by far. Blackledge and Sims actually played and started. Jenkins never got on the field.

1983

Marv Levy was released as the club’s head coach on January 4th. Dallas Cowboys QBs coach John Mackovic was named the fifth head coach in team history on February 2nd. The 39-year-old Mackovic became the youngest individual ever to hold that post for the club. The Chiefs held the seventh overall pick in the quarterback-laden ‘83 NFL Draft and selected QB Todd Blackledge (Penn State). The five other signal-callers selected in the first round that year included John Elway (1st – Baltimore), Jim Kelly (Buffalo – 14th), Tony Eason (New England – 15th), Ken O’Brien (N.Y. Jets – 24th) and Dan Marino (Miami – 27th). LB Bobby Bell became the first Chiefs player to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on July 30th, providing some solace to the franchise which was still mourning the death of RB Joe Delaney.

It's a 2 for 1 thread. Talking about Chiefs players that were former Michigan Wolverines while also talking about the worst Chiefs draft picks of all time. The 2 subjects are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

BTW, my vote for worst draft pick of all time is Trazelle Jenkins as the worst draft pick ever. I mean, you could say that there were plenty of late rounders that were as bad or worse (Scott Connot comes to mind - not sure if he was even drafted, though), but Jenkins was a first round pick that was gone in 3 years. Sad, patheic, and disgusting.

Also, that damn Carl Peterson should never have drafted Todd Blackledge. :shake:
