Chiefs wrap up draft with cornerback, running back, center selections

The Chiefs’ 2019 draft is over with the team taking a cornerback, running back, and center on Day 3.


Here are their pre-draft analyses, per ESPN.com:


Rashad Fenton, CB, South Carolina, 5’11, 193, 6th round (201)

Fenton is a versatile defensive back who lined up on the outside, over the slot and at safety at South Carolina. He's got average size and top-end speed with shorter arms. He's tough with good balance in underneath coverage. He's a below-average run stopper.


Darwin Thompson, RB, Utah State, 5’8, 198, 6th round (214)

Thompson runs hard, and he's built low to the ground and has the balance to pick up yards after contact. He's not a powerful short-yardage runner with the brute strength to push the pile. He shows good burst through the hole. Though he's a small target, he's twitchy enough to separate and flashes good ball skills.


Nick Allegretti, C, Illinois, 6’4, 310, 7th round (216)

Allegretti has size, athletic ability and enough length to develop into a versatile interior offensive lineman who provides depth at guard and center.
