Draft-Chiefs Third Day

Draft-Chiefs Third Day

With the 75th overall pick in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs have selected defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi out of Florida State. But that doesn't mean much considering the Chiefs used none of their original picks Friday night, when they moved around to grab a defensive end, defensive tackle and outside linebacker.

The club engineered a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals to select Speaks with the 14th selection of the second round.

Each year, it seems like each draft tries to one-up each other in surprising picks and trades.

Speaks tallied nine sacks and 15 tackles for loss in 37 games with 18 starts at Mississippi. After taking Breeland Speaks, it is clear the Chiefs want to get bigger up front. Nnadi was a third-team All-ACC player for the Seminoles a year ago with 56 tackles, 10 of them for a loss, and 3.5 sacks. Cornerback remains a priority, but wide receiver, tight end and offensive line could also be in the mix.
