UpdateBannon was drafted by the Chiefs!

Two years ago, the Kansas City Chiefs signed a Yale linebacker prospect named Bobby Abare in the hours after the 2009 NFL Draft.  Even though Abare ultimately did not make the team, Yale football fans saw it as a victory for their program.

Now Yale FB Shane Bannon is trying to do same thing - get on an NFL roster - and he may have a chance with the Chiefs, who reportedly held a workout with Bannon recently

Described as a "combination player," Bannon is a fullback/halfback type of player who isn't projected to be drafted. He had 13 catches last season and started every game.

Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post has some quotes from Bannon's agent about his ability:

"The kid is a stud," Joe Linta, Bannon's agent, told the National Football Post. "I had never heard of the kid before a coach at Yale told me about him. He's a good looking kid, catches every pass, light feet and he's blowing up people on the film. He's got some position flexibility, too. He can play fullback or be an in-line tight end."

That flexibility is more than likely what will get Bannon on an NFL roster, if that even happens. Anyone seen him play?
