It took almost a full day of waiting, but former Yale fullback Shane Bannon ’11 was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 7th round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

Bannon ’11, who started all 10 games for the Elis last season, was the 223rd overall pick of the draft. He had worked out in Kansas City with the team in April.

Two years ago, the Chiefs signed Eli Bobby Abare ’09 as an undrafted free agent.
