The Kansas City Chiefs have made their next selection!
With the 135th overall pick in the fourth round, the Chiefs took Fayetteville State cornerback Joshua Williams. We have insta-grades from the three members of the Arrowhead Pride Draft Team: Ron Kopp, Kristian Gumminger and Rocky Magana.
Ron: Williams got on our radar when the Chiefs brought him in for a Top-30 visit earlier this month — and when I looked into him, I liked what I saw. He’s a lengthy, physical outside cornerback who has an aggressive mindset — yet another prospect in this class where aggression comes to mind first.
He is a project, but he represents good value here — and he is well-respected among the draft community. after Trent McDuffie in the first round, Williams is great double-up at corner.
Kristian: This is a great pick by Brett Veach. After solidifying the Corner 2 spot with Trent McDuffie, Williams is the kind of developmental corner you take a swing on. He’s a long, athletic corner who should have been taken on Day 2. The board keeps falling perfectly for the Chiefs.
Rocky: In his pre-draft presser, Brett Veach said that he wanted long, athletic cornerbacks. Well, he just got that in spades in Williams, who dominated the lower-level opposition at Fayetteville State. At 6-feet-3 and 195 pounds (with a 36-inch vertical), there aren’t many receivers who will outjump him. Coming into the draft, Kansas City’s corners were a glaring weakness — and in the span of three days, Veach has transformed the position into a strength.
What’s your grade for the Chiefs’ No. 135 overall pick, Joshua Williams?
