With the last pick in the first round, the Chiefs add more talent to their defensive line.
Last season the Chiefs drafted George Karlaftis, and they moved on from Frank Clark this offseason. Anudike-Uzomah brings great talent off the edge and athleticism, showing off some of the best bend in the entire draft. The Chiefs continue to add talent defensively, this time with a Kansas City native.
Anudike-Uzomah, a 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive end from Lee’s Summit High School, declared for the draft following a junior year at Kansas State, where he was named Big 12 defensive player of the year and was a second-team All-America selection by several publications as well as a third-team pick by the Associated Press.
The NFL Draft continues in Kansas City with rounds two and three on Friday. The Chiefs have one pick in each of those rounds. KC then has seven picks in the final four rounds on Saturday.
