This year, 337 players attended the NFL Combine. Of those 337 players, former Ole Miss Quarterback Shea Patterson was the only one to go undrafted or unsigned until this weekend.
On Sunday, the Michigan graduate finally found a home with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he’ll try to prove his value as a former five star recruit.
Between his time with the Rebels and Wolverines, Patterson threw for exactly 8,800 yards to go along with 68 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions.
He had his first 3,000 yard season in 2019 and had a strong showing in the Reeses Senior Bowl as the only quarterback to top 100 yards.
One of his new teammates in KC will be one of his former teammates in Oxford, Ole Miss alum Jordan Ta’amu.
Ta’amu shared a locker with Patterson in 2017 and was given the starting nod upon Patterson’s departure for Michgan.
Both players will serve as back-ups to reigning Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes and incumbent second string QB Chad Henne.
Ta’amu signed with the Chiefs following a season shortened XFL stint with the St. Louis Battlehawks.
