Kansas City Chiefs LB Tanoh Kpassagnon
In his first full offseason working exclusively at outside linebacker, Kpassagnon, whom Kansas City traded up to secure in Round 2 last year, has earned rave reviews. He'll get a chance to contribute readily opposite Justin Houston, too, after spending his rookie season mostly learning the ropes before registering two sacks and three tackles for loss in Week 17, his first-ever start. With vines for arms (35 3/8 inches) and unusual speed and twitch for a 6-foot-7, 280-pounder, the Villanova product could be a defensive coordinator's dream. And with former first-rounder Dee Ford failing to catch on and Tamba Hali moving on this offseason, it could set the stage for Kpassagnon to shine, especially if he can stay a step ahead of fellow DL convert and second-rounder, rookie Breeland Speaks, for reps.
