Chris and Ryan talk through our reaction directly after rounds 2 and 3 of the 2016 NFL Draft. Round 2 selection Chris Jones comes into the Chiefs stout defensive line rotation and has a chance to grow behind a solid group. The trade down netted the team an additional 4th round pick while moving down into the top of the third round. With the newly acquired #74 selection, KeiVarae Russel was selected to give the cornerback group a boost. Russel is an instinctual corner much like Marcus Peters, but was not as productive in college INTs or PBUs. With some character and injury concerns, his borderline first round talent fell into the third round. Athletically, Russell is more gifted than Marcus peters.  Here is his Athletic Profile from www.RogueAPC.com.

Could he fit into a 3-4 scheme? Maybe, but its the nickel linebacker where he can excel. Who has the combination of Power and range to cover out of the nickel linebacker position?
