The Chiefs used the first of two sixth-rounders to try and address the cornerback position

The Kansas City Chiefs selected cornerback Rashad Fenton with the 201st overall pick in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. They currently own two more day-three picks.

Reaction: All of the problems at cornerback have been officially solved with the sixth-round pick! Just kidding.

Fenton was a Tier-4 athletic tester for Craig in his analysis of the cornerback position for the KC Draft Guide. The athletic profile isn’t particularly strong. We valued him at 217 in the guide, so this is about where he was projected to go.

He has slender arms but quick feet. He’s a competitive and a willing tackler. He has good punch in his press but struggles against bigger receivers. His coaches implied that he took himself out of his final game at South Carolina. There are some workable traits, but it’ll be an uphill battle for Fenton to stick on the 53-man roster. He’s most likely heading for the practice squad if he hangs around.
