Chris Bonner played for the Colorado State-Pueblo Thunderwolves, a Division II school in Pueblo, Colorado. Being from a Division II school is already a knock on most prospects, but Bonner led his team to their first National Championship title last season, which is certainly something.

“He got hammered by some big shots and kept coming back for more. He’s tough, but the arm isn’t good enough to me.” — NFC regional scout

He’s a tall guy at 6’7″ and wouldn’t be anything more than a third string guy more than likely. Still though, it’s not difficult to see why the Chiefs like Bonner. He threw for almost 3,300 yards last season and 30 touchdowns to only eight interceptions.

Like I said above, Bonner won’t be a starter for the Chiefs. He’d be a nice option on the practice squad and who knows? Maybe he’ll see some playing time during the preseason.

"Tall quarterback with ability to see over the defense. Smart and more experienced in a complicated offense than most QBs in this draft. Works from shotgun and under center. Climbs the pocket when he feels pressure from the edge and keeps looking for his target. Comfortable throwing while rolling out. – Lance Zierlein, NFL.com"
