Chiefs 2016 draft picks: Virginia Tech OLB Dadi Nicolas is 6th round pick

New, comments

With the 203rd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Virginia Tech OLB Dadi Nicolas.

The Chiefs needed depth at pass rush after Dezman Moses left this offseason. With Justin Houston potentially missing time and Tamba Hali getting up there in age, the Chiefs need to have something cooking at the back of the roster when it comes to the pass rush. Nicolas won't play right away but the Chiefs hope he can turn into something. The ESPN analysts said he was a perfect fit for a 3-4 outside linebacker.

This is the final pick of the Chiefs draft.
