Kansas City's other sixth-round selection, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif of McGill University in Canada, signed with the Chiefs on Wednesday morning. A former defensive tackle, rated as the top-ranked prospect in the 2014 CANADIAN Football League draft, Durvernay-Tardif opened eyes in the United States with a strong pro day performance, where he ran a 40-yard dash in 4.94 seconds, bench-pressed 225 pounds 33 times, and had a vertical leap of 31.5 inches. He is 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds, and plays offensive tackle. He was the 200th overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.

He intercepted four passes and notched a school record 38 passes defensed. Gaines earned All-Conference USA honors twice and served as a team captain for the Owls his final two seasons.
