e cornerback who may still be there for the Chiefs."A very Merry Draftmas to you! It’s the FINAL day of 25 Days of Draftmas on Arrowhead Pride Allen Bailey Jersey , where we’ve be given you a Kansas City Chiefs draft prospect every day in April leading up to the NFL Draft.This was supposed to be a video about the Chiefs trading up for Clelin Ferrell, but Frank Clark altered those plans. Instead, let’s roll with a defensive back from the Big Ten.Amani Oruwariye, cornerbackPhoto by Joe Robbins/Getty Images6’2” | 205 lbs | Penn StateDraft grade: second roundDraft range: second round40 time: 4.47NFL Combine: 36.5” vertical, 120” broad, 4.16 20yd, 6.82 3-cone, 17 bench reps2018 Stats: 12 PBU, 3 INT, 51 tacklesBackground: Three-star recruit. Second-team All-Big Ten in 2017 despite only playing as a reserve. First-team All-Big Ten in 2018. Jim Thorpe Award semifinalist in 2018 for the nation’s top defensive back.Strengths: Oruwariye is a lengthy cornerback that has the proper body mass and speed to play in any scheme. He has a nose for the football and locates it well in flight to attack at the catch point. He has very high football IQ and great understanding of route distribution when playing in zone. He is a constant threat to jump a route from zone coverage due to proper discipline and route awareness. He rarely “guesses” at the route or where the ball will go, instead relying on proper instincts to put himself in the right position.Weaknesses: While Oruwariye is comfortable in zone coverage, his footwork and turns suffer when asked to backpedal in man coverage. From press, he struggles to mirror the receiver’s footwork and his punch is very inconsistent. He tends to get too high in his shuffle and makes it very difficult to change direction quickly, particularly on in-breaking routes. NFL teams asked him to work on press coverage during the week of the Senior Bowl and he showed minimal improvement.How he fits with the Chiefs: Oruwariye is the type of player that defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo might pound the table for. His fantastic ball skills, length and speed are all key traits that Brett Veach and Spagnuolo have stated they are seeking out this offseason. Coupled with a very high football IQ and ability to fit seamlessly into pattern-matching zone coverages, Oruwariye makes an awful lot of sense for a Chiefs secondary in need of some more quality players. Should the Chiefs be able to develop his man coverage ability, Oruwariye could be a top-flight corner at the next level.What would it be like to be a Chief: “They’re a great team Eric Fisher Jersey , they got a great offense. I could be a guy that could step up and bring a spark to the defense.”KC Draft GuideThe first-ever edition of the KC Draft Guide is available for download now for only $9.99!

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In an otherwise empty Kansas City Chiefs locker room, long after they had rallied to beat the Ravens in overtime and clinch a playoff berth, chairman Clark Hunt was asked what makes this year’s team different than all those that suffered postseason letdowns.His answer was refreshingly simple and candid: Patrick Mahomes.“I think he’s shown even more than what we thought he’d be during the draft process,” Hunt said with a hint of a smile. “In so many ways he’s exceeded our expectations, and when you have a guy like Patrick under center, you always have a chance to win games.”Even when things aren’t going perfectly.The Chiefs had watched offensive lineman Cam Erving leave with a knee injury, running back Spencer Ware hurt both his shoulder and hamstring, and wide receiver Tyreek Hill hurt his wrist and heel but remain in the game. Mahomes had thrown an interception into heavy coverage, special teams had made a rare mistake that allowed Baltimore to take a late lead, and the game was hanging in the balance.Mahomes responded with the kind of magic Chiefs fans already have come to expect.First, there was the audacious, cross-body throw some 40 yards downfield to convert on fourth-and-9 and keep the Chiefs alive. Then there was the savvy dump-off pass on another fourth-down play to backup running back Damien Williams that forged a 24-24 tie with 53 seconds left in regulation.After winning the coin toss in overtime, Mahomes deftly led the Chiefs downfield for a go-ahead field goal Demetrius Harris Jersey , which wound up being the winner when the Kansas City defense stopped the Ravens on downs.“This game here, this was a big test for him,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “The rest of the season will be a big test for him, too. But this was a big test to this point, and I like the way he handled it.”Mahomes wound up throwing for 377 yards and two touchdowns against the NFL’s top-ranked defense, and his daring schoolyard plays helped the Chiefs (11-2) inch closer to a third straight AFC West title.“You see it on film, but the things that he did, it’s just hard to practice that,” Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley said. “We work on drills when the quarterback is out of the pocket and you keep your eyes on your man. That big fourth-and-long that they had, it was all on the right side of the field and then he threw it up and made a great play. At the end of the day, they made more plays than we did.”Yes, the Chiefs’ record-setting quarterback didn’t do it alone. Hill made big catches in overtime, Travis Kelce had another monster game, and Justin Houston and the Chiefs’ defense made a series of crucial stops in overtime to help KC escape with a playoff-like victory over the Ravens.Now, they can clinch the division title and at least a first-round bye with a victory over the Los Angeles Chargers in another high-profile showdown Thursday night at Arrowhead Stadium.Mahomes also can continue to scribble his name in the record books.He’s already set a franchise record with 43 touchdown passes, three behind Peyton Manning’s record for most during the first 13 games of a season. He needs 292 yards passing to break Trent Green’s franchise mark of 4,591 in a single season Cameron Erving Jersey , and Manning’s NFL record of 5,477 yards isn’t out of reach.“He’s a great quarterback,” Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson said. “I think he always plays good. He’s got people who are 250, 260 (pounds) rushing him — he’s the quarterback, he’s got a tough job. So we just try to do everything we can to make it easy for him.”Mahomes is the first to point out that nothing he does happens in a vacuum. He readily deflects praise to his wide receivers and offensive line, along with Reid and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, even as the owner of the franchise heaped it on him.“He has emerged as one of the key leaders of the team, which is very hard for a 23-year-old player in his first year as a starter,” Hunt said. “But the guys really gravitate to him. I think it says a lot about his character. … I don’t run into anybody either here in Kansas City or somewhere else who doesn’t say, ‘Wow, that young man seems like he’s really special.'”NOTES: Chiefs president Mark Donovan said the team expects to return to Missouri Western for camp next year, even though no contract has been signed. “We’re fully expecting to be back there,” he said. … Reid said Monday that SS Eric Berry could play against the Chargers. “We will just see how it goes these next couple of days,” he said, “but there’s a chance.”
