Chiefs 2013 NFL Draft Grades: Sanders Commings

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Georgia CB Sanders Commings in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Commings could end up being a bit of a controversial pick. He comes from a Georgia program that has been turning out premium defenders after playing in a pro-style 3-4 system. He processes great size and decent speed for a corner.

Unfortunately, he comes with some character concerns.

From NFL.com:

He also raised some character red flags when he was arrested in January 2012 for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend in public. He was suspended for the team’s first two games this fall, and agreed to drug and alcohol testing and anger management counseling.

Purely as a football move, I like the pick. Georgia has been turning our really good football players (see Justin Houston) and if the plan is to move Commings to FS, I really like the pick.

From a personal standpoint, however, I am concerned about having any player that would beat up women on the Kansas City Chiefs. I am glad that Commings has agreed to treatment and counseling and hopefully the Chiefs did their homework. Hopefully Commings has changes and will get his life on track by being a contributor to KC.

But I’ll be proceeding with caution on this one.

What do you think, Addicts? Time to grade the pick?

Grade the selection of Sanders Commings.

    i think thia draft is all about adding depth. almost every pick makes sence for the talent available and team need. only pick im iffy about is davis. the backs already on the team are talented as #2rbs. but the commings pick is brilliant if they plan to play him opposite berry. he has that nastyness which seems to be the theme this draft. we could have a top 5 defense all together. getting excited for the season. go CHIEFS!!!!

      except they aren’t. this team has 2 backup HB’s, one is draughn who is absolutely terrible, at best a 3rd back. and gray, who a lot of fans like, but has proven absolutely nothing at this level and is a 6th rd pick. they needed a HB, its shocking people are OK that anytime Charles needs a rest, or splits wide, that draughn would be the guy who comes in, my gosh, hes flat out mediocre in every facet of the game. this kid can pass protect which these other 2 cannot. this kid can run at a 4.37, with over 28 reps on the bench. hes powerful. big difference.

        Except… He’s a CB…

        I would imagine you were grading Knile and not the CB this article is about.

        In reference to your comments on Knile Davis. He definitely adds something we don’t have. Davis adds a RB 20-25#’s heavier than anyone on our roster with blazing speed. Gray will see an expanded role and could very realistically have a break out year.
        I agree Draughn was average at best but got more carries due to Gray being injured. Don’t forget that Reid has already proclaimed how much he likes McCluster and that he is going to be getting carries out of the backfield too.
