The Chiefs got another one of their draft picks under contract on Thursday.

The NFL’s daily transaction wire brought word that the they have signed fourth-round pick Joshua Williams. Williams is the ninth of the team’s picks to agree to their rookie deal and second-round wideout Skyy Moore is the only remaining unsigned pick.

Williams had 31 tackles and three interceptions — one that he returned for a touchdown — in nine starts at cornerback for Fayetteville State during the 2021 season. He was also a starter in 2019, but the school did not play any games in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Williams was one of three corners the Chiefs drafted this spring. First-rounder Trent McDuffie and seventh-rounder Jaylen Watson will join him in competing for playing time as rookies.
