Whether or not the Chiefs end up bringing back defensive tackle Chris Jones, the value here in the second round could make their defense even better. Clemson defensive lineman Ruke Orhorhoro also had an exceptional combine and comes into this draft as a well-built player who can dominate in both aspects of the defense.

Orhorhoro stands 6-foot-4, 294 pounds and is a compact, strong build. He's drawn pro comparisons to the likes of Justin Madubuike, who is about to be compensated handsomly as a free agent this year. He's the explosive type up front, who plays like he's shot out of a cannon. Although he's gotten criticized for needing to work on his technique, he did refine that a bit in his final collegiate season and looks to be better suited as a pro going forward.

If the Chiefs are able to pair Orhorhoro with Jones up front, look out. Even if the team doesn't bring back Jones, they should be just fine with Orhorhoro taking his place.
