Chiefs' Quinten Lawrence Apparently Now A Defensive Back

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs issued jersey numbers to their 2011 NFL draft picks and undrafted free agents this week. There weren't any big surprises on the list -- not sure what would qualify as a "surprise" with jersey numbers -- but there was one interesting note.

The Chiefs roster on KCChiefs.com now lists Quinten Lawrence as a defensive back. He came to the Chiefs in the 2009 draft as a receiver out of McNeese State. He also switched to No. 31, a defensive back number.

What's interesting is that this move was probably hinted at before the lockout began. That's because at the Chiefs player-only practice last June, Lawrence was lined up as a defensive back so he knew something about it then.

His bio on KCChiefs.com notes he did play some defensive back at McNeese State so it's not a totally foreign position for him.

We'll see if he can make it on the other side of the ball.
