It took a while but the Chiefs have finally made their second selection of the night.

With the 87th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Phillip Gaines, a cornerback from Rice.

Here is the writeup from Nolan Nawrocki:

"Nice length. Terrific timed speed, blazing sub-4.4 times at the combine. Can be deployed in zone coverage. Plays the pocket. Good production on the ball, with 35 passes defended the last two seasons. Tough and competitive. Is hardworking and well respected by coaches and teammates. Recorded second-quickest three-cone drill among cornerbacks at the combine (6.62 seconds)."

Kansas City’s next pick is the 23rd overall pick in the fourth round, which will be held on Saturday.
