Sterup heading to mini camp with Chiefs

Sterup heading to mini camp with Chiefs

Offensive lineman Zach Sterup practices at Hawks Championship Center on Tuesday.

Zach Sterup is going to get his shot, set to head to a mini camp with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to agent Brett Tessler.

The towering offensive lineman out of Hastings St. Cecilia started 16 games for the Huskers over his career, playing at both tackle and then guard at the end of his senior season.

Sterup seemed to play some of the best football of his career at the end of that senior year, working on the right side of Nebraska's O-line next to tackle Nick Gates.

Given that the 6-foot-8, 320-pounder also looked in the best shape of his life when he showed up for the Pro Day in Lincoln, it's no shock he's getting a look at the next level.

Sterup joins cornerback Daniel Davie as former Huskers who are known to be getting an NFL shot despite not being drafted.

Davie signed a free-agent deal with the Indianapolis Colts and plans to head to a mini camp on Thursday.
