The Kansas City Chiefs have locked up their third-round pick, KeiVarae Russell.
After signing their other eight draft choices of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs finally inked their ninth and final member of the class, coming to terms with KeiVarae Russell.
For Kansas City general manager John Dorsey, this signals the end of the draft process. For Russell, this is hopefully the beginning of a long journey with the Chiefs.
Russell was a productive cornerback throughout his time with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and was talented enough for Dorsey to use his second pick on the youngster. Russell will be competing for a starting spot from the start, going against the likes of Phillip Gaines, Steven Nelson and fellow rookie D.J. White.
This is good timing for Russell to sign, with the first two rounds fo OTAs in the books. The Chiefs only have one more OTA session and then a mandatory minicamp before breaking away from football until training camp.
With the draft class now completely locked up and the Chiefs looking like they have a set roster for camp, Dorsey can focus completely on signing Eric Berry to a long-term deal. The Chiefs have until July 15 to work out a deal with Berry, who otherwise would have to play on a franchise tag.
