By Jayson Henderson

Kansas State University saw two of its football players, Ben Sinnott and Cooper Beebe, realize their NFL aspirations during the 2024 NFL Draft. Sinnott, a tight end, was selected by the Washington Commanders as the 21st pick of the second round, while Beebe, an offensive lineman, was chosen by the Dallas Cowboys as the ninth pick of the third round. Sinnott’s selection marks a milestone for Kansas State as he becomes the highest-selected tight end in the school’s history. Beebe’s draft by the Cowboys adds to Kansas State’s representation in the NFL, with four players now selected in the top three rounds over the past two years. Both players have showcased their skills on and off the field, with Sinnott’s notable achievements including tying the record for the most receiving touchdowns by a K-State tight end and Beebe being recognized as a Consensus All-American offensive lineman.
