In the second round, no less!

NCAA Football: Villanova at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time since 2011, a Villanova Wildcats football player has been selected in the NFL Draft!

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Villanova DE Tanoh Kpassagnon with the 59th overall pick Friday night in, coincidentally enough, Philadelphia!

Kpassagnon is just the sixth Wildcat drafted since 1981.

Congratulations to Tanoh Kpassagnon, and good luck to him in Kansas City!
