Let’s look at what Twitter had to say in response to the Kansas City Chiefs’ selection of Trent McDuffie.

The Kansas City Chiefs made their first big move of the 2022 NFL Draft in the final third of the first round on Thursday night when they gave up three picks to the New England Patriots in order to secure the rights to cornerback Trent McDuffie.

McDuffie, a cornerback out of Washington, has been one of the draft’s most highly-rated defensive backs for the entire pre-draft process, and while fans were likely expecting help at edge rusher or wide receiver at the time, they’re going to love the well-rounded, pro-ready skill set McDuffie brings to the mix.

It should be noted that Washington typically sends excellent corners to the pro level, and the Chiefs know this first-hand with the ballhawking skills of Marcus Peters, a former first-round pick as well back in 2015.

Let’s get a read from Chiefs Kingdom and beyond on the addition of McDuffie to the Chiefs. Twitter had a lot to say about the pick, but let’s start with seeing McDuffie’s family and friends celebrating his big moment from the draft broadcast:

McDuffie himself took to Twitter just a few minutes after being selected and seems ready to get to work for the Chiefs.

Here’s what some analysts and fans had to say about McDuffie in the minutes after the selection, including a lot of praise for the Chiefs for making the pick.

It also doesn’t hurt to get a jab in at a fellow contender in the AFC in the process.
