2012 NFL Draft Results: Chiefs Take Cornerback DeQuan Menzie In 5th Round

With the 146th pick in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs have selected DeQuan Menzie, a cornerback from the Alabama Crimson Tide. These NFL Draft 2012 results confirm the projection for Menzie, who experts believed was likely to be selected in the fourth or fifth round.

Menzie's ability make plays on the ball has never been questioned. He had a team-high 11 pass breakups for the national champions last season. However, he's not the ideal size for a cornerback (5-11 and 202 pounds) and didn't blow away anyone at combine. He still, though, could find himself in a reserve role in the NFL.

The Chiefs next pick is the 182nd selected in Round 6. Menzie is the second defensive player selected by the Chiefs along with first-round pick Dontari Poe of Memphis.
