Chiefs have another NFL Draft interest: Harvard FB Kyle Juszczyk

The Kansas City Chiefs continue working players out before the 2013 NFL Draft. The latest one is a fullback out of Harvard named Kyle Juszczyk.

There hasn't been a Harvard football player drafted since quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2005, but that could change this year. Fullback / H-back Kyle Juszczyk has a shot to be drafted, and the team that pulls the trigger could be the Kansas City Chiefs.

He is 6'1 and weighs 248 pounds. Check out the numbers from his pro day, where he ran a 4.7 40-yard dash.

Kyle Juszczyk from Harvard is an ideal H-back/fullback candidate. He has been impressive as a lead blocker on the inside run game and has decleated a number of linebackers in the run drills. He is a fine receiver out of the backfield or as a wing has been excellent all week. He has soft hands, runs good routes and is physical after the catch. The 49ers run a lot of two- and three-tight sets and a number of teams are studying that offense. Juszczyk would be a great fit for that type of offense.

Can't say I know much anything about Harvard football. Shoot, I can't even pronounce this guy's name.

The Chiefs have a couple of fullbacks on the roster: Patrick DiMarco and Ryan D'Imperio. DiMarco was on the team last year -- Pancakes! -- while D'Imperio was signed this offseason.
