The Chiefs hold one more pick in this draft — No. 177 in the fifth round.
L’Jarius Sneed, defensive back
Louisiana Tech • 6’0” • 192 pounds
I love this pick in day three of the draft.
Sneed boasts a very impressive athletic profile, running a 4.37 at the NFL Combine. He played safety last season but is one year removed from lining up at cornerback, so I wonder if the Chiefs don’t view him as an outside cornerback. Sneed is a physical player at the line of scrimmage and a willing hitter in the running game. He also boasts great ball skills.
It’s going to be fascinating to see how the Chiefs view him, but they absolutely got a quality athletic to work with — and a player who should contribute immediately on special teams.
