Round 2, Pick 64: Kiran Amegadjie, OT, Yale

Kiran Armegadjie has unteachable size and athleticism at the left tackle position. At 6'5" 323 lbs. with over 36-inch arms, Amegadjie moves well out in space. His raw traits are partly due to his ability to just flat-out dominate at his level of competition. Almost every player he faced he was able to just rely on strength and length. With desired size and athleticism combined with three years at left tackle, he's an ideal fit for the Chiefs.

Why this player?

Trading up in round 2 can still be costly, but in order to reach some of the other project tackles (Fisher, Paul and Rosengarten), the Chiefs would need to get aggressive. Instead they let the board fall to them and still walk away with a high-level project tackle.

Short of one of the top 3 tackles somehow falling to the Chiefs, there are not many players fixing left tackle in this draft. The Chiefs likely have Donovan Smith on speed dial after the draft. Here they get a high-floor player that can develop at left tackle and allow Wanya Morris to continue to be the swing tackle.

When Donovan Smith gets hurt (which happens often) the Chiefs can then decide if Morris or Amegadjie get the nod at left tackle.
