Chiefs draft picks 2013: Do you approve of selecting Nico Johnson?

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday used their fourth round pick (No. 99 overall) on Alabama inside linebacker Nico Johnson. Do you approve of the pick?

USA TODAY Sports

The KC Chiefs signed a pair of inside linebackers in free agency this offseason, including Zac Diles and Akeem Jordan. You can now add one more name to the competition: Nico Johnson. The Alabama football linebacker was picked by KC 99th overall.

I don't know much about Nico Johnson but I do know that most fourth round picks don't step in and start immediately. Diles and Jordan have more experience so I suspect they will see the lion's share of playing time early on unless Johnson comes out swinging right away.
