The Chiefs have their first deal done with one of their draft picks.

The club has signed offensive guard Zach Fulton to a four-year contract, the team announced Tuesday night.

A sixth-round selection from Tennessee, the 6-foot-5, 323-pound Fulton started 40 games in his collegiate career. He’s likely to compete for a reserve role at guard, a position at which the Chiefs have retooled after losing Jon Asamoah (Falcons) and Geoff Schwartz (Giants) in free agency.

The Chiefs are the first AFC club to announce an agreement with a draft pick. Overall, nine drafted rookies have either signed deals or agreed to terms. The Bears have agreed with six draft picks, with the 49ers getting two selections under contract.

    This kid is a little raw but could end up being very good with seasoning a coaching. Welcome to the Chiefs, Zach!

    the chiefs didn’t “lose” jeff asamoah.. they let him walk after he spent most of last season on the bench. rishaw johnson, jeff linkenbach, fulton, and duvernay-tardif actually represent an upgrade at the position. i saw one draft expert say the chiefs didn’t address the o-line in the draft. i guess the sixth round doesn’t count.
