Kansas City Chiefs Select Dee Ford In First Round

We finally have an answer to who will be the Chiefs’ pick at 23 overall.

With the 23rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Dee Ford, a defensive end/outside linebacker from Auburn.

Here’s a write up from Nolan Nawrocki:

Very good acceleration and burst to beat blockers off the ball. Anticipates the snap very well and has a long second step. Plays with urgency and keeps working to the quarterback. Outstanding energy and work ethic. Athletic enough to fall in coverage and play on his feet. Beat Texas A&M RT Cedric Ogbuehi for two sacks to close out a 45-41 upset victory and finished the season strong. Respected, defensive tempo-setter — distinguished by his effort, hustle and pursuit.

Kansas City’s next pick is scheduled for the third round on Friday night.
