With the 217th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Southern Miss DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches, who is 6'2 and 307 pounds. Defensive line help was one of our needs heading into the 2015 draft.
Here's what his NFL.com profile says:
Fireplug with a good motor and an ability to find gaps and drive upfield through them. He's missing the size and brute strength necessary to consistently handle himself in phone booth battle so he will have to play in a one-gap, upfield defense. He has the look of a penetrating nose who will have to start his career as a backup.
This is the Chiefs eighth draft pick of the weekend and the final pick of the sixth round.
