Round 7, Pick 221: Jarius Monroe, CB, Tulane

With 7 interceptions and 51 passes defended, Jarius Monroe's on-the-ball production has been his biggest asset. At 6'0" and 200 lbs. with 32-inch arms, Monroe is a big physical corner that is aggressive at the line of scrimmage. He also flashed at the Shrine Bowl.

Monroe's long speed is fairly average and he can get grabby down field which could lead to penalties at the next level. But Monroe brings lots of things to the table the Chiefs like at defensive back: long, physical, aggressive in run support, and ball production.

Why this player?

Seventh-round players are mostly priority undrafted free agents whom teams don't want to get into a bidding war for. The Chiefs have invested frequently in the secondary on day 3, Monroe could be another piece of that plan. The Chiefs don't have a glaring hole at corner because of their investment in players like Nic Jones and Nazeeh Johnson. Monroe can mix into that competition as Joshua Williams and Jaylen Watson factor into the primary starting roles.
