Chiefs Sign Third Round Pick Donald Stephenson

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed third round pick Donald Stephenson to a four-year contract.

The 6'7" offensive tackle out of Oklahoma is one of the more athletic lineman in this year's draft class. Stephenson bested all offensive lineman in his class with a 4.94 40-yard dash. He also posted impressive numbers in the vertical jump (35.5 in), broad jump (9'6"), 20-yard shuttle (4.78), and three-cone drill (7.52). His vertical leap and broad jumps also ranked first among offensive lineman in his draft class.

Stephenson started every game at left tackle for the Sooners this past season on an offensive line that only allowed 11 sacks all year. He started at left tackle in 10 of 14 games his junior season as well. He was an honorable mention All-Big 12 this past season.

The Chiefs have now signed seven of their eight draft picks so far. First round selection Dontari Poe remains the last unsigned pick, but is expected to sign within a reasonable time frame.
