The Kansas City Chiefs continued to add to their offensive line depth by selecting California (PA) center Eric Kush in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Kush makes the second offensive lineman the Chiefs have taken in this draft. KC took LT Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick.
There is not as much information out there about Eric Kush as there has been the Chiefs’ other selections. Hailing from California in PA, Kush was ranked as the 11th best center in the draft by NFL Draft Scout. He was projected as a high sixth to seventh round pick.
Listed at 6-4, 304, Kush played in the East West Shrine Game and impressed scouts with his toughness when he left practice with a lower leg injury but later returned, limping, with his leg wrapped, to finish the practice.
I was able to find an interview with Eric, courtesy of BuffaloBillsDraft.com. There are some interesting bits in the interview. He was recruited to be a defensive lineman and then spend an entire season at LT before moving to center.
The Chiefs certainly could use some depth on the offensive line, especially at the center position.
What do you think, Addicts? Are any of you familiar with Kush?
