With the 23rd pick in the fifth round, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Aaron Murray, a quarterback from Georgia.

Here is the writeup from Nolan Nawrocki:

"Has a quick release and is light enough on his feet to escape the first wave and make some plays on the move. Solid decision-maker — takes what the defense gives him. Fine short-to-intermediate accuracy. Good intangibles. Encouraging team leader with a likeable personality. Leads by example. Serves well as the face of the program. Outstanding work ethic. Is very intelligent and football smart. Experienced, four-year starter in the SEC."

Kansas City has two picks in the sixth round, the 17th and 24th picks in the round, later today. They are the final two picks the Chiefs have in the draft unless they trade down or back into the draft.
