Breeland Speaks, right, a standout defender at Mississippi, signed a four-year rookie contract with the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs signed second-round draft pick Breeland Speaks to his four-year rookie contract Thursday, making him the third of their six draft selections to sign a deal.

Kansas City did not have a first-round pick this year after trading it away last year to move up and select quarterback Patrick Mahomes II.

So, new general manager Brett Veach waited until the 46th overall pick to grab Speaks, who is expected to bolster the Chiefs’ weak pass rush this season.
