31. Kansas City Chiefs

31. player. 124. . DT. Ohio State. Dre'Mont Jones

The Kansas City Chiefs know they are set on offense with weapons everywhere. This gives them a free hand to resume stockpiling talent on defense. While a top cornerback would be preferable, the board simply doesn’t break that way for them. So instead they beef up their front seven with another athletic defensive lineman in Dre’Mont Jones. He’s shown that knack at Ohio State for using his quickness and length to beat blockers into the backfield on a regular basis, tackling ball carriers for a loss and applying pressure on the quarterback. He and Chris Jones could make for quite a tandem.
