Former Colorado cornerback Jalil Brown was selected in the fourth round of the NFL draft today by the Kansas City Chiefs, becoming the third Buff to be drafted this year along with Nate Solder and Jimmy Smith.

Jalil Brown was taken with the 118th overall selection Saturday, joining the AFC West champion Chiefs.

Brown is the eighth Colorado defensive back to be drafted since 2000, joining Jimmy Smith, who was selected by Baltimore on Thursday with the 27th overall choice, Terrence Wheatley, Donald Strickland, Michael Lewis, Rashidi Barnes, Damen Wheeler and Ben Kelly.

Brown will compete for playing time with a group of other young cornerbacks on the Chiefs roster. The starters on the current Kansas City depth chart are Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr, two players with three years of NFL experience.

Brown told a reporter for the Chiefs website that he was surprised that Kansas City drafted him because he hadn't had much communication from the organization prior to the draft.

“They just told me that they’re excited to have me come there, I told them I was excited to come there and I’m excited to play in Arrowhead Stadium," Brown said. "I know they have a ton of great fans and this is terrific for me.”
