2012 NFL Draft Results: Michigan's Junior Hemingway Goes To Chiefs In Seventh Round

The Michigan Wolverines are finally getting some players of their's picked in the 2012 NFL Draft, though it's coming in the seventh round. Wide receiver Junior Hemingway has just been selected by the Kansas City Chiefs - at No. 238 overall, the second-to-last pick in the seventh round outside of the compensatory selections. He joins David Molk (who was drafted at No. 226 overall - the seventh round) and Mike Martin (who was drafted at No. 82 overall, in the third round) to make three Michigan players drafted thus far.

Hemingway will be the final pick for the Chiefs, who also drafted a wide receiver much earlier in the draft when they took Devon Wylie out of Fresno State in the fourth round. Hemingway started 31 games at wide receiver for the Wolverines, and has 1,638 career receiving yards, good for 17th in school history, with six 100-yard games to his credit. He was also the Sugar Bowl MVP in 2011.

He'll join a Chiefs team that has invested in the wide receiver position recently - with money going to Dwayne Bowe and Steve Breaston, along with the 2011 draftee, Jonathan Baldwin. Still, there's room there to compete, but he'll likely need to contribute on special teams.
