Kansas City Chiefs Select De’Anthony Thomas In Fourth Round


The Kansas City Chiefs have added their first pick of day three.

With the 124th pick in the NFL Draft, the Chiefs select De’Anthony Thomas, a running back/wide receiver from Oregon.

Here is what Nolan Nawrocki’s writeup:

"Has legit big-time sprinter’s speed with very quick turnover (and is field-fast). Cat-quick to the corner, accelerates very quickly and can easily take the perimter. Good vision and cutback ability — is patient and follows his blocks. Can tightrope-walk the sideline. Very quick to and through the hole once he sees a crease and can stick his foot in the dirt and go. Catches in stride with ease and can make difficult one-handed snags (see Arizona). Has home-run speed in the return game, with 3 career return TDs."

Kansas City picks 23rd overall in the fifth round later today.
