With the 178th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Georgia Tech CB DJ White.
178 #Chiefs DJ White CB Press cover CB. Doesn’t allow WRs easy catches. Can pedal high and trouble turning. Has speed, but slow in COD.— Shane P. Hallam (@ShanePHallam) April 30, 2016
As our pal CitadelChief noted, the Chiefs had a need at corner and they missed out on the top ones and so they can throw numbers at the position. This is the third corner the Chiefs have drafted behind Notre Dame CB KeiVarae Russell in the third round and Minnesota CB Eric Murray in the fourth.
