The Kansas City Chiefs have added their first pick of day three.
With the 124th pick in the NFL Draft, the Chiefs select De’Anthony Thomas, a running back/wide receiver from Oregon.
Here is what Nolan Nawrocki’s writeup:
Has legit big-time sprinter’s speed with very quick turnover (and is field-fast). Cat-quick to the corner, accelerates very quickly and can easily take the perimter. Good vision and cutback ability — is patient and follows his blocks. Can tightrope-walk the sideline. Very quick to and through the hole once he sees a crease and can stick his foot in the dirt and go. Catches in stride with ease and can make difficult one-handed snags (see Arizona). Has home-run speed in the return game, with 3 career return TDs.
Kansas City picks 23rd overall in the fifth round later today.
