Chiefs Sign Third-Round LB Dorian O’Daniel

The Chiefs inked another one of their draft picks today. ESPN’s Adam Teicher reports that the team has signed linebacker Dorian O’Daniel.

The Clemson product, who was selected with the 100th-overall pick, followed up a stellar 2016 campaign with an even better 2017 season. As a senior, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound O’Daniel finished with 88 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, five passes defended, and a pair of interceptions. His performance earned him a second-team all-conference nod.

Of course, the rookie will struggle for playing time on a crowded Kansas City depth chart. With Justin Houston and Dee Ford penciled in as the team’s starting outside linebackers, O’Daniel will have to battle with Frank Zombo and former second-rounder Tanoh Kpassagnon for playing time.

With this signing, the Chiefs have signed five of their six draft picks. Third-round defensive lineman Derrick Nnadi remains unsigned. The list of other Chiefs’ draft picks includes:
