Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The 23rd overall selection in the draft, Ford will serve as an off-the-bench pass rusher as a rookie, but will have a chance to displace Tamba Hali from the starting lineup in 2015. Unless he has DL eligibility in your fantasy league, he's unlikely to make an IDP impact in either season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)This selection would seem to hint that the Chiefs don't necessarily think they'll keep Tamba Hali beyond 2014. Ford will provide depth so long as both Hali and Justin Houston are on the roster, but he's probably not good enough to threaten the playing time of either. With immediate impacts still on the board at receiver and defensive back, this seems like a dubious pick for Kansas City. They don't have a second-round pick.
