KC Chiefs call Derrick Nnadi in 3rd round

Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft: Defense and O-line the focus, predictions for every pick

After no first round picks, Chiefs poised to make a splash at NFL Draft on second day

After going without a selection in the first round, the Kansas City Chiefs will have a second-round pick and two third-round choices when the National Football League draft resumes Friday night. After taking Breeland Speaks, it is clear the Chiefs want to get bigger up front.

Nnadi becomes the second FSU player selected in the draft, joining safety Derwin James, who was selected with the No. 17 pick in the first round by the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday.

Kansas City traded the 54th and 78th picks to the Cincinnati Bengals to move up eight spots and grab the second-team All-SEC defensive lineman. He was the No. 75 pick overall.

Speaks, 22, is listed at 6 feet 3 and 283 pounds. He appeared in all 12 games last season, starting at defensive tackle and finishing the season at defensive end, and piled up 67 tackles and seven sacks.

The Chiefs defensive line just got more versatile with the selection of Speaks.
