Jake Bernstein has been a fixture on the Vanderbilt Commodores' offensive line over the last four years, starting 41 games at guard during his career, including every game in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Now, Bernstein will get his chance in the NFL despite going undrafted as the Kansas City Chiefs have signed Bernstein as a free agent.

Bernstein, a 6'4", 310-pound guard from Lake in the Hills, IL, previously had a predraft workout with the Chiefs, so it's no surprise that in spite of going undrafted, the Chiefs were interested enough to bring him into camp as a free agent. Bernstein led Vanderbilt with 63 pancake blocks in 2015, and while he played mostly at guard at Vanderbilt, he has enough versatility to play center as well. That factor could help him make an NFL roster as a reserve lineman.
We at Anchor of Gold wish Jake the best as he starts his professional career and thank him for giving four years to Vanderbilt.
