Chiefs start signing their draft picks


Teams are starting to sign their draft picks all around the league and the Chiefs are no exception.

The Chiefs announced Friday that they have signed sixth-round offensive lineman Eric Kush and seventh-round linebacker Mike Catapano. They are the first two members of their eight-player draft class to sign contracts.

Both Kush and Catapano are products of schools not known for being pipelines of talent for the NFL. Kush played left tackle and center at California University in Pennsylvania, but projects to an interior spot in the NFL. The Chiefs have Rodney Hudson at center presently with Jon Asamoah, Geoff Schwartz and Jeff Allen making up the leading candidates for starting guard spots.

Catapano was the Ivy League’s defensive player of the year after recording 12 sacks as a defensive end at Princeton. He may kick outside to a linebacker spot in the Chiefs’ 3-4 front or he could be asked to get bigger to put himself into the mix at defensive end.

    Elway’s arrogance is about to bite him in the end! Broncos aren’t the same team. Chiefs are putting together a contender and by the way, the chiefs players don’t have a 2 year window like Peyton.
