2013 NFL Draft: Kansas City Chiefs Select Sanders Commings, CB, Georgia

The Kansas City Chiefs added a second straight defensive player by selecting Georgia CB Sanders Commings with the 134th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the first of the fifth round.

It’s rare to get a player with the kind of size (6′, 216) and speed (4.41 40 yard dash) combination Commings possesses in the fifth round. Add in production at the highest level of college football and it’s an easy pick to make at this point of the draft, even if it’s at a position of strength.

There is a reason to worry about why he fell this far. Not only are there some concerns about his footwork, but more importantly he carries major red flags. Commings was suspended the first two games of the 2012 season after being arrested for assaulting his girlfriend.

If he can be a good citizen and learn from DB coach Emmitt Thomas, he’ll have a chance to make some waves in a crowded secondary. At the very least he can use his size to be a difference maker on special teams before making his way onto the field on defense.
