The Kansas City Chiefs have signed their sixth and final draft pick in third-round nose tackle Derrick Nnadi, the team announced via its official Twitter account Thursday afternoon.

The Chiefs traded with the Baltimore Ravens to move up in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft to select the former Florida State nose tackle.
“When you come back to pick 75 when Nnadi was on the board, we were looking at how the board was kind of working, and Nnadi had such a good value there,” general manager Brett Veach said after the draft. “There was another big gap, so we went up and got him.”
Of the Chiefs’ two Thursday signees, wide receiver Josh Crockett stood out as a tryout player on Wednesday. He made one catch in particular at practice that made the Chiefs offense collectively gasp.
Crockett had 50 receptions for 758 yards and eight touchdowns at Central Oklahoma last season.
