Chiefs draft pick signings: OT Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is in the fold

Sixth round pick Laurent Duvernay-Tardif becomes the second KC Chiefs draft pick to sign.

Kansas City Chiefs sixth round pick OT Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has signed his contract. How do I know? With the caption of "Officially a Chief!!!", Larry (that's his new name) posted this picture:


That makes two draft picks under contract with the other being Tennessee G Zach Fulton, who inked a contract on Tuesday evening.

Duvernay-Tardif's four-year contract should be worth about $2,320,300.

The 6'5 offensive tackle out of McGill in Canada was the 200th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Chiefs final selection of the draft. At best in year one, he looks to be competing for the Chiefs swing tackle spot with starters Eric Fisher and Donald Stephenson already on either side. He is said to have great size and athleticism but hasn't played against as high level competition as those in, say, the SEC.

He is studying to be a doctor. In fact, he was helping deliver twins on Friday, the day before he was picked by the Chiefs. Pretty cool, huh?

He also speaks French as his primary language. So, here's a translation of this post (via Google Translate):
