Round 5, Pick 159: Myles Cole, Edge, Texas Tech

Myles Cole looks like a first-round pick based on body composition at 6'6", 278 lbs. with a massive wingspan. His frame has never really caught up with his production as a pass rusher though. Despite being a fifth-year senior and turning 24 draft weekend, he's only accumulated 5 career sacks and 12.5 TFL. What he does do well is defend the run with a relentless motor. Cole is not a passing-down edge but there is certainly use for his size and motor against a run-heavy team

Why this player?

The Chiefs have brought back lots of familiar faces along the defensive line this off-season. Outside of George Karlaftis and Felix Anudike-Uzomah, all of their projected starters are fairly old. The Chiefs need to continue to get younger along the defensive line.
