Chiefs selected Rice CB Phillip Gaines with the No. 87 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Gaines (6-foot 3/8, 193) was a 40-game starter for the Owls, tallying a school-record 38 career pass breakups with 13 tackles for loss and four interceptions. He was a first-team All C-USA pick as both a junior and senior by the conference's coaches. In 2013, Gaines was targeted 40 times in the passing game, allowing just 13 receptions (32.5% completion rate). Gaines' stock soared when he ran 4.38 at the Combine with a 10-foot-2 broad jump and 36 1/2-inch vertical. Based on sheer athleticism and size, Gaines has upside to grow into a borderline No. 1 NFL cornerback. There have been rumors the Chiefs are looking to move on from Brandon Flowers, so Gaines could see some playing time early. May 9 - 10:46 PM
