2010 NFL Draft: The Kansas City Chiefs Draft CB Javier Arenas

With the 50th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs have selected Alabama corner back and punt returner Javier Arenas.

Mocking the Draft has the skinny on Arenas:

5'9, 198 pounds | Cornerback | Alabama

Agility:
Shows excellent agility to move around laterally with ease. Is a very quick player on his feet and sticks with shifty receivers. Cut into and out of his breaks without losing a beat.

Ball Skills: Moderately underrated in this area because of his low interception numbers. But Arenas shows in his return abilities that he has good hands. Muffing a kick was a rarity and Arenas showed good ball placement on returns.

Body Control: Displays great mid-air agility. Has a good vertical leap. Shows good balance in his backpedal. Possesses a consistent backpedal.

Instincts: Arenas displayed great recognition skills throughout his career. Reads plays quickly and adjusts especially well. Gets an excellent break on the ball. Will bite on fakes from time to time.

That's another Chiefs' draft pick that wasn't on our draft interests list. Arenas will join Brandon Flowers, Brandon Carr, Travis Daniels, Donald Washington, Jackie Bates and Mike Richardson at the corner position for the Chiefs.

Another pick I didn't see coming, let alone the position that was selected. The Chiefs must have had a high grade on Arenas and/or think he has great kick return potential. This is the second pick by the Chiefs this draft that involved a hybrid-type player.

Arenas highlights are after the jump.
