Round 5 - Pick #158 - Tyrone Tracy Jr. - Running Back - Purdue

While there aren't any elite running backs in this draft class, there are a ton of them who may hear their names called in the middle rounds. One of the most underrated of that group is Tyrone Tracy Jr. from Purdue. Tracy was originally a wide receiver at Iowa and only has one year of experience at running back, but he showed real promise at the position.

Tracy is 5-foot-11 and 209 pounds. As you can imagine, with his wide receiver background he is a major receiving threat both out of the backfield and as a weapon that could be motioned outside. He also has extensive experience as a kick and punt returner. As a mid-round pick, special teams upside is always a plus and Tracy has that.

Tracy cemented his draft stock at the combine where he was great across the board. His 9.87 RAS score ranks 24th out of 1,765 running back prospects dating back to 1987. His 4.48 forty time was good, but his 40-inch vertical, 4.06 second short shuttle, and 6.81 three cone were all 95th percentile or better at the position.

If the Chiefs can get an explosive running back with pass-catching ability and special teams experience in the mid-rounds I think that is a great use of a pick, especially with the potential loss of Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
