Pacheco, affectionately called “Pop,” was one of the last players selected in the 2022 NFL Draft at No. 251 overall in Round 7. The rookie out of Rutgers not only made the roster but had an impact season helping his team get to the Super Bowl.
In 2022, Pacheco played in all 17 regular-season games, making 11 starts. He was the Chiefs’ leading rusher with 170 carries for 830 yards and 5 touchdowns.
In playoff action, Pacheco has recorded 22 carries for 121 yards over 2 games. We’ll see what he has in store for Super Bowl LVII against the Philadelphia Eagles (6:30 p.m. ET, FOX).
