In the sixth round, the Kansas City Chiefs took their third cornerback of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Everyone who follows the Chiefs believed that the team desperately needed to add some depth to the cornerback position. Luckily, it appears that general manager John Dorsey agreed.
With the first pick of their sixth round, the Chiefs selected D.J. White out of Georgia Tech. White is a speedy corner, running his 40-yard dash time in 4.49 seconds. White is 5-foot-10 and 193 pounds, giving him decent size to play on either the outside or in the slot.
Kansas City has been very aggressive in addressing this position. The Chiefs took KeiVarae Russell out of Notre Dame in the third round before adding Eric Murray in the fourth round. Kansas City has now added another corner in White, who will come in and compete at the bottom of the depth chart with the aforementioned rookies, along with Steven Nelson and Marcus Cooper.
Hopefully this is a draft that really sets up the corner room for quite some time. If nothing else, we are going to have quite the camp battle to watch come July and August, with all of these youngsters fighting for a job and perhaps a starting job in their first year.
