The Kansas City Chiefs used one of their two fifth round picks in the 2015 NFL Draft on Oregon State LB DJ Alexander, who says he had a good feeling that the Chiefs would draft him.
"I had a good feeling," LB DJ Alexander on whether he thought #Chiefs would pick him up. #ChiefsDraft— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) May 2, 2015
DJ Alexander said Kansas City was one of his favorite visits. Hoped the #Chiefs might take a chance on him in rounds 5-7.— Tod Palmer (@todpalmer) May 2, 2015
He did not show up on our Chiefs draft interest tracker. The Chiefs said he would compete at INSIDE linebacker. That's another one after Ramik Wilson in the fourth round.
More reactions to the Chiefs fifth round pick, DJ Alexander.
#Chiefs area scout says that Alexander will compete for an inside linebacker spot. Says speed first attribute that stood out. @610SportsKC— Ben Heisler (@bennyheis) May 2, 2015
