Kansas City Chiefs Draft Prospects


In my opinion, the Kansas City Chiefs are already playing with fire at cornerback right now. That gets even more true next year when Terrance Mitchell becomes a free agent. The Chiefs failed to capitalize on a stacked cornerback class in 2017, so they’ll have to address it in 2018 for sure. Hopefully there’s a good option available.

Adonis Alexander – Virginia Tech

There were some ups and downs for Virginia Tech corner Adonis Alexander. Some passes were completed his way, but he also broke up three. All in all, it was a good day for him, but not the kind that will garner first round pick talk. That might be good news for the Chiefs though.

Iman Marshall – Southern Cal

Western Michigan gave the Trojans all they could handle, but very little of that had to do with Iman Marshall. The star USC corner didn’t give up much of anything, and had a pass break up, as the Broncos were held to under 100 yards passing. Marshall was solid, but this won’t be the game that determines his draft stock.

Jordan Thomas – Oklahoma

You won’t see much from Jordan Thomas on the Sooners stat sheet from this past week. That’s because he basically shut down whoever he was covering. The UTEP passing game got nothing done against Oklahoma, and a lot of that has to do with Thomas holding down his assignments. Thomas would be a huge steal for the Chiefs.
