KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs have stuck with defense and selected Alex Magee, a big tackle from Purdue, with their third-round pick in the NFL draft.
The Chiefs, who finished next-to-last in defense last year, took LSU defensive end Tyson Jackson with the overall No. 3 pick in the first round Saturday. They did not have another selection until Sunday’s third round after trading their second-round choice to New England for quarterback Matt Cassel.
The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Magee also played defensive end for the Boilermakers.
