Virginia Tech linebacker Dadi Nicolas looks like a developmental prospect

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A few thoughts on the second of the Kansas City Chiefs’ two sixth-round draft picks, Virginia Tech linebacker/defensive end Dadi Lhomme Nicolas.

My take: Nicolas is about 235 pounds, so he’s far too light to play defensive end and he’ll even have to add some weight to become an effective outside linebacker. He has some skills as a pass-rusher but it’s a stretch to think the Chiefs will get some benefit from those skills anytime soon. He looks like he’s a practice-squad candidate at best as a rookie.
