Chiefs Sign Undrafted FA LB Justin Cole

The Chiefs have signed undrafted free agent LB Justin Cole from San Jose State.

Scouts Inc. assigned a rating of 31 to Cole and ranked him as the 24th OLB.

You can check out his Spartans profile here.

Cole (6-3, 242) played in 49 games (42 starts) at San Jose State, posting 193 tackles (84 solo), 30.5 stops for loss, 13.0 sacks, one INT, nine passes defensed, five fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles.  The Pasadena, California native was named all-league at Chino Hills High School in Chino Hills, California.

Didn’t play at a big-time school but he was at SJS for five years so he has plenty of experience to go along with his prototypical size and speed for a rushing linebacker.  Could push one of last year’s UDFA LBs — Pierre Walters — for a spot on the final 53.
