NFL Draft results 2013: Mike Catapano, Princeton DE, joins KC Chiefs in 7th round

The KC Chiefs have made their final selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, picking up a defensive end from Princeton named Mike Catapano.


Mike Catapano is a 6'4', 271-pound defensive end out of the Ivy League.

Defensive end was considered a need heading into the 2013 NFL Draft but only from a depth standpoint. Tyson Jackson will man one side while Mike DeVito, signed in free agency to a multi-year deal, will play on the other side. The Chiefs need along the line, and possibly even a starter or two down the road depending on what happens with Tyson Jackson.

The KC Chiefs have made six picks in the 2013 NFL Draft to this point. As you know, Eric Fisher was the No. 1 overall pick and will plug into the right or left side of the offensive line depending on what happens with Branden Albert. The Chiefs second round pick is gone due to the Alex Smith trade. In the third round, KC selected athletic TE Travis Kelceout of Cincinnati and Arkansas RB Knile Davis. After that it was Alabama LB Nico Johnson in the fourth round, Georgia CB Sanders Commings in the fifth round and California (PA) C Eric Kush and FB Braden Wilson in the sixth round.

GM John Dorsey will speak to the media at the end of the draft.
