Last night, GM Brett Veach was able to turn a 2020 6th-round pick into a former 1st-round pick when he acquired LB Darron Lee in a trade with the Jets. The 24-year-old linebacker had obtained 238 total tackles, 17 TFL, 3 INT, 11 passes defended, 11 QB hits, and 2 FF in his three seasons with New York. Lee showcased great athleticism at Ohio State and during the draft process, and the athletic tools transferred to the NFL. He has great downhill speed, is much improved in coverage, and can be really effective on blitzes. Lee will likely compete for the starting spot at the weak-side LB position in the 4-3 defense. I really like this trade as it really can only help us. He will be a great addition to the defense. - #chiefs#chiefskingdom#chiefsnation#chiefsfootball#kcchiefs#letsgochiefs#howboutthosechiefs#arrowhead#arrowheadstadium#nfl#football#letsgooo#thekingdom#darronlee

TRADE ALERT 🚨: The Jets are sending LB Darron Lee to the Chiefs in exchange for a 2020 6th Round pick. • The Jets selected Lee with the 20th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft because of his supreme confidence and elite athleticism, but he’s failed to live up to hype. Former GM Mike Maccagnan was reportedly shopping around Lee quite a bit, and now interim GM and current HC Adam Gase has finally shipped him off. For the Chiefs, a 2020 6th isn’t much of anything, and Lee’s athleticism is still really intriguing. I think this is a pretty good move by them.
