Jehu Chesson goes to Chiefs in 4th round (#139 overall)

Wide receiver Jehu Chesson was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 4th round (#139 overall), one pick after Ryan Glasgow.

Chesson ran a 4.41 at Michigan’s pro day and showed off a 39.5″ vertical. He struggled during his senior year (35 catches, 500 yards, 2 TDs), but he had a great finish to his redshirt junior year and ended the season with 50 catches for 764 yards and 9 receiving touchdowns, not to mention 2 rushing touchdowns and 1 kickoff return score.

2017 NFL Draft Preview: Michigan

Taco Charlton

Players are listed in order of how I expect them to get drafted.

1st ROUND

Taco Charlton – DE
Charlton didn’t particularly enjoy playing a 3-4 defensive end role in 2015 under defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin, and he was more productive as a weakside end in 2016’s version of the 4-3.  He’s projected by NFL scouts as a 4-3 end, and mostly I’ve seen him pegged as going in the last third of the first round, though he has moved up to the middle third of the first round in some mock drafts over the last week or two.
Teams to watch: Saints, Bears, Dolphins, Falcons

Hit the jump for the rest of the draft preview.
