“This kid is going to look like a first-round pick. He is an impressive player,” Chiefs general manager Brett Veach told the Kansas City Star’s Sam McDowell. “He’s a draftable talent just as a defensive lineman, and he would certainly be on an NFL roster this coming fall if he just played defensive line.
