CHIEFS SIGN OL TOMMIE DRAHEIM
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed offensive lineman Tommie Draheim.
Draheim (6-4, 309) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2012. He was released by the Packers before the start of the regular season and was added to the Seattle Seahawks practice squad on Sept. 6. Draheim served a short stint on the New England Patriots practice squad before spending the rest of the 2012 season on Jacksonville’s practice squad.
Prior to entering the NFL, Draheim (Dray-hime) started 33 games for San Diego State University, including 30 consecutive starts to end his career. He earned first-team All-Mountain West Conference honors as a senior, becoming the first Aztec offensive lineman to be named first-team all-league since 2003. A three-year letterman, he helped SDSU rank 10th in the country in 2011 in fewest sacks allowed (0.83 per game) and blocked for a running back who finished No. 3 in the country with 1,711 rushing yards on the season. The Lakeside, Calif., native prepped at El Capitan High School.
