The Kansas City Chiefs announced today that they’ve signed fifth-round draft pick Kendrick Lewis.
Lewis, a defensive back out of Ole Miss, was taken with the first of the Chiefs’ two fifth-round picks, No. 136 overall.
As a three-year starter at Ole Miss, Lewis had six interceptions, four forced fumbles, three sacks and two blocked kicks.
Lewis grew up in New Orleans but was displaced before his senior season because of Hurricane Katrina. Within months of his family moving to Georgia, he was named as an all-state wide receiver in his new home state.
