Round 3: Mike Morris, Michigan
There is an obvious trend in the types of EDGE rushers that the Chiefs find themselves interested in. Oftentimes, Steve Spagnuolo and the defensive coaching staff look for powerful rushers that have good length. Mike Morris fits the mold perfectly. With a similar look to that of George Karlaftis, Morris is knocked for his lack of bend/flexibility. That, however, should not overpower the emphasis on the top-notch effort he plays with on every down.
Similarly to Karlaftis, Morris never quits. He seems to play like every down is the most important moment of the game. He could be yet another versatile piece of the defensive front. While he is not overtly explosive or hyper-athletic, his growth cannot be understated throughout his career. For a player that could fill in at any position along the line, Morris would make for an intriguing third-round option.
Round 4: Tavius Robinson, Ole Miss
Tavius Robinson is one of those guys that could be boom or bust. In the 4th round, drafting someone for their potential is the name of the game. At 6’6, 257 pounds, Tavius Robison flashes greatness in his ability to get around the edge. While his play strength leaves a little to be desired, Robinson has good athleticism.
For the Chiefs, Robinson would make for an interesting rotational piece. While Omenihu and Karlaftis have the EDGE positions down, Robinson could provide a snap here and there and possibly develop into a solid starter one day.
