With the 37th pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Chris Jones.
This is huge news for both Jones and the Mississippi State family who will be supporting him all the way. He was understandably frustrated yesterday, and I think many of us were, that he wasn't taken in the first round.

But the five-star 6'6" defensive lineman who came to Starkville in 2013 had a pretty good career for the Maroon and White and now he is off to central Missouri to be make a lot of money and play a lot of football. And so, congrats Chris, let's celebrate!

If you missed Chris Jones getting selected, you missed the best part of your day. What a fun moment! WHERE CAN WE BUY A KC CHIEFS HAT?!?!?!?— FWtCT (@mstatesports) April 29, 2016
So, thank you Chris, for all you did for Mississippi State. Go show the NFL what you can do. We're all rooting for you buddy.
