With the 24th pick in the sixth round of the NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, an offensive tackle from McGill, a college in Canada.

Here’s what Nolan Nawrocki said about Laurent Duvernay-Tardif:

"Looks the part with outstanding upper-body strength and massive quads. Stout anchor in pass protection. Violent shock in his punch. Plays with a nasty temperament and seeks to bury defenders into the ground. Aggressive run blocker — runs his feet on contact and plays beyond the whistle. Is physically and mentally tough and will play through pain (fought through a torn left labrum injury as a senior and never took himself out of a game or missed time). Highly intelligent (in medical program) and football smart. Can take concepts from the board to the field."

Barring a late trade, the Chiefs are done picking in this year’s draft.
