With their first pick in the seventh round, the Kansas City Chiefs have drafted SDSU DT Jerome Long. The senior stands at 6'4" and weighs 290 pounds.

U-T San Diego has a really good article on Long:

"I've been told his NFL stock has gone up dramatically because of the way he's played this year," SDSU head coach Rocky Long said.

It's sort of the story of his life: His stock keeps going up, in large part because of how he developed.

Defensive tackle is another position where it pays to have players coming in because they churn in and out. Long appears to a pick for depth in this situation.

The Chiefs have one more pick - No. 238.
