The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly signed UFA Vanderbilt defensive tackle, Rob Lohr.
Lohr tweeted out his excitement at being signed by the Chiefs a bit earlier.
A quick check of his official bio at the Vanderbilt Comodores official page revealed the following information about Lohr:
"Lohr started every game at tackle, running his consecutive career total to 38 starts… Ranked third on team with 11 tackles for loss and concluded his careeer as team’s active leader with 31.5 career tackles for loss and 11 quarterback sacks… Notched 30 tackles and a pair of sacks as a senior, and played his best football of the season late in the year… Was superb in thrilling win at Ole Miss with five solo tackles, three resulting in losses… Also had pair of tackles for loss and a sack vs. UMass… Finished regular season with six-solo tackle performance in win at Wake Forest… Added two tackles in Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl victory over N.C. State."
Any defensive tackle who can get to the quarterback is okay in book. The Chiefs will have some questions at this position this season along with the rest of the defensive line. Last year’s first round pick, Dontari Poe, is still coming into his own as an NFL tackle and could always use the competition at the position. As I’ve said before, look for the Chiefs leadership to continue to bring in bodies to push each other in the days leading up to training camp.
