With the 63rd pick, the Chiefs selected Virginia safety Juan Thornhill.
The Chiefs already addressed the safety position in free agency by signing Tyrann Mathieu, formerly of the Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals. In the process, Kansas City parted ways with veteran captain Eric Berry.
Thornhill is the definition of a ballhawk. When he sees the ball, he's going to get it by any means necessary. Just ask sixth overall pick Daniel Jones, who was picked off four times in three games by Thornhill.

In his senior season, Thornhill tallied 98 tackles, seven passes defensed, and six interceptions.
New defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is going to love Thornhill, who could put up similar numbers as Landon Collins did under the coach while as a member of the New York Giants.
