The Kansas City Chiefs have all their draft picks under contract after signing rookie Derrick Nnadi, the team announced on Thursday.

Nnadi, a nose tackle out of Florida State, was the first of Kansas City’s two third-round draft picks (No. 75 overall).

The 6-foot-1, 312-pound Nnadi could be in line for a major role as a rookie, working with the starting unit during both organized team activities and the Chiefs’ mandatory minicamp.

Kansas City also announced three other signings Thursday, adding running back Algernon Brown, wide receiver Josh Crockett and offensive tackle Bentley Spain.

To clear roster space for the new signees, the Chiefs waived Kaleb Johnson, defensive back Malik Reaves and running back J.D. Moore.
