The Kansas City Chiefs have gone for defense more often than offense in the 2022 NFL Draft so far. They started with Trent McDuffie, the cornerback from Washington. Then, they took George Karlaftis, the edge rusher from Purdue.
After that, the Chiefs traded back and still got wide receiver Skyy Moore, who was the 22nd overall ranked player in the draft.
With the Chiefs 62nd pick in the draft, they went defense again. They selected Bryan Cook, the defensive back from Cincinnati.
Here is the scouting report on Bryan Cook:
“Cook had 96 tackles, two interceptions and 11 pass breakups last season. He is an interchangeable safety with good size and average speed. He’s competitive matching up with backs and tight ends, but he’s not a rangy center fielder. He’s a downfield run stopper and effective wrap-up tackler with good stopping power. Cook shows good strength taking on blocks. He has the potential to develop into a No. 2 safety early in his career.” -Per ESPN
Bryan Cook is a great pick for the Chiefs. The defensive back room was one of the weakest positions prior to the draft, and they added on to that tonight, and yesterday. Bryan Cook will be alongside Trent McDuffie as the young defensive back room continues to grow in Kansas City.
