Former Bison To Sign With Kansas City Chiefs

SEARCY, AR – Former Harding wide receiver Donatella Luckett went undrafted in this weekend’s NFL Draft but will sign a free-agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.

In his senior season at Harding, Luckett made 23 receptions for 605 yards and five touchdowns. He earned All-Super Region 3 and honorable mention All-America honors and became just the second Harding player to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine.

He is the first Harding player to sign a free-agent contract with the Chiefs since linebacker Greg Poston went to camp with the team in 1984.

“By the seventh round, I didn’t get drafted and I didn’t get angry or anything and Kansas City started calling,” said Luckett. “And then a couple more. Actually a lot more teams started calling as well, but I felt like the translation from Harding to Kansas City I felt more like their coaching staff was more like Harding’s coaching staff. I’d been thinking about the process the whole time. If I didn’t get drafted where would I go? And who would show me the most interest? And I felt like Kansas City really had a plan for me and I really want to go in there and show them that I’m the baller that they think I am.”
