When the Kansas City Chiefs kicked off rookie minicamp on Saturday, they did it with all six of their draft picks officially under contract. First-round pick Dee Ford, the last unsigned member of the Chiefs' 2014 class, signed on Saturday, the team announced.
The 23rd overall pick signed a four-year deal with a team-option for a fifth year. The fully guaranteed $8.16 million contract includes a $4.25 million signing bonus.
CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco gave the Ford pick a C- due to the fact that Ford will likely be serving as a backup in 2014. Chiefs general manager John Dorsey explained the Ford pick this week by pointing out, "You can't ever have enough good pass-rushers."
Ford totaled 10.5 sacks at Auburn in 2013 despite missing the first two games with a sprained knee.
