Kansas City Chiefs kicked off the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft by selecting Cincinnati TE Travis Kelce with the 63rd overall pick.

Before the Chiefs even made their second pick of the third round, Kelce was introduced to the KC media via a conference all.

Early on, Kelce was asked about his sophomore season, in which he as suspended for violating a team policy.

“It was a suspended drug test for marijuana, it was a one-time thing. I haven’t touched it since,” said Kelce. “I am a guy that is a clean-cut guy and im going to give the organization everything I can and that’s that.”

The last time the Chiefs took a player in the third round that had smoked a little pot was when they selected LB Justin Houston.

Kelce also made it clear that he has the versatility in his game to not only be a threat in the passing game but as a blocker in the running game as well.

“I’ve heard a lot of comparison, I would like to think I’m a different breed of player, someone that can get after a guy in the run game, but at the same time catch a ball and go 80 to the house,” said Kelce. “I think the Chiefs are going to get someone who is very versatile and if I had to possibly choose one guy, I would choose Jeremy Shockey just the way he plays with passion and energy, I think that would be an awesome comparison.”

    baffled by this pick. Reid and Dorsey jettisoned 4 – 5 tight ends that were of varying capability and size, all equal or greater to this kid. They then signed miami’s anthony fasano, and we have tony moeaki. The signed a real Full back as well. What did we gain here? Dont we need saftey and Linebacker much more desperatly that this? Not really seeing this logic at all. not happy.
