In addition to Johnson and Pierre-Louis, the Chiefs have veterans Ramik Wilson, Justin March-Lillard, Terrance Smith and Josh Mauga at inside linebacker. They also drafted Ukeme Eligwe in the fifth round.

“In college, I was more outside the box playing more of a strong safety type, so when I got to Seattle, I had to re-learn how to play inside the box, so my eyes have definitely transitioned,” Pierre-Louis said. “I have definitely improved my eyes.”
