Quote:
The Chiefs and 5th-round draft pick safety Sanders Commings have agreed on a 4-year deal.

Coming out of Georgia, Commings played cornerback, but he’s been working at safety in the Chiefs rookie mini-camp and in OTA sessions.

That leaves only No. 1 choice Eric Fisher, 3rd-round selection Travis Kelce and 4th-round pick Nico Johnson as the unsigned draft picks.

Sooner or later one of these tweeners will do the job. I hope this is the guy.

Commings has the size and the ball skills to play next to Berry and hold his own. He's a lot faster than Lewis and might have the best hands/awareness/ball tracking of the safetys not named Eric Berry. Aside from Fisher, Davis, and Kelce, he my favorite rookie.

It's weird that the three picks that we were most applauded for, are the only ones not signed.

I'm excited to see what this guy can bring, I'd love for him to unseat the over-rated Lewis. (sorry couldn't resist)

I still think when Kendrick plays on a consistent basis he's the perfect compliment to Berry. But his shoulder/shoulders are made of glass.

That sort of sticks him in the middle. Its like being 2nd in a 3 man race.

He's my favorite defensive rookie?

Better, though that makes him the best of the day 3 picks.

Still, it is something. Of the defensive rookies, I like Nico JOhnson, because he promises to be a thumper. We have needed a thumper for a while. If Commings has the skills to play big nickel and FS, he could easily be more important.

Best Chiefs tweener ever.. Dale Carter? Went from S in Tennessee (Vols) to CB in KC and was awesome at it. We have a little bit of a track record with these transitions! Very Happy

I'm excited for this kid

Easily. If he hadn’t had a pea-brain he might be in Canton. Dale Carter and James Hasty were as good a CB tandem in Chiefs history.

However, before you give the Chiefs “The Golden Tweener” award, consider Eric Warfield and William Bartee. Ugh! Mark Collins to safety was another that worked out well, though.

Really? We're talking about the best tweeners in Chiefs history and there's no mention of DT yet?

Warfield.. man that kid had athletic ability! But he was similar to Carr's early struggles.. no real CB awareness.. and he never really grew out of it. Still I think he gets a bum wrap a bit. He was in a position that highlights failures almost as much as a QB gets highlighted, and he was on a island a lot.

Bartee was a scrub though! And yes Collins had a great transition. I heard a very cool and candid interview with Dale Carter on 810 about a year ago, the guy genuinely felt leaving KC was his biggest mistake. I wonder.. in todays game would you take Carter, Lewis, Flowers, Ross, or Hasty first for this team?

DT was pure LB to me. Gunther playing him in the so called "falcon" position for a season doesn't change that. Drafted as a LB and played LB.. hard to shove him into tweener status.

Albert Lewis and Kevin Ross for my money. They had a nice pair of safeties beside them--Burress and Cherry. Back in the day, Robinson and Thomas.
