Junior Hemingway goes to Kansas City

April, 28, 2012
He spent most of his career playing in an offense ill-fitting to his skills. But Junior Hemingway, the comfortable safety valve at receiver for Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, has a place in the NFL.

Hemingway was selected by Kansas City in the seventh round with pick No. 238. He'll join former Michigan receiver Steve Breaston in Kansas City.

The Conway, S.C. native caught 88 passes for 1,638 yards and 11 touchdowns in his career, including two touchdowns in his final college game at the Allstate Sugar Bowl, where he was named MVP.

Previous five players picked at No. 238: 2011 -- David Ausberry, WR, USC (Oakland); 2010 -- Ricardo Mathews, DT, Cincinnati (Indianapolis); 2009 -- Stoney Woodson, CB, South Carolina (N.Y. Giants); 2008 -- Cory Boyd, RB, South Carolina (Denver); 2007 -- Abraham Wright, LB, Colorado (Miami)
