Round 5: Kendall Smith, S, Illinois
An older rookie, Kendall Smith is probably not going to get drafted before the 5th round. He lacks experience and high-scale speed, but he is a ballhawk. Smith seems to find himself in a position to make a play frequently and logged five interceptions last year.
In Kansas City, he could make for a tremendous special teams player and may develop into a great depth guy at safety. He is a solid tackler that could play in the middle of the field on a rotational basis.
Round 6: Cory Trice Jr., CB, Purdue
Cory Trice, if he is there in the 6th, would be a home run for the Chiefs. While he has some areas of concern in his zone coverage and ability to play at the catch point, he has tremendous length and man coverage ability. For a team like Kansas City, which occasionally likes to dial up huge blitz packages, Trice would fit like a glove.
Trice is also a ferocious corner. He is not afraid of contact or lowering his shoulder. The Chiefs love physical players and grabbing one as talented as Trice in the 6th would be a great move.
Round 7: Cameron Brown, CB, Ohio State
If you draft Cameron Brown, you are banking on his upside. The fact is, he is not a great tackler and has struggled with injury throughout his career. However, if you get his best, you get a player that works well in a man coverage scheme, especially in a non-press defense. He could be a core special teamer as well.
