The Chiefs are using seventh-round pick Mike Catapano at outside linebacker in training camp.
Catapano is a bit of a 'tweener at 6-foot-3, 271, but K.C.'s coaching staff believes he's athletic enough to convert from college defensive end. "He’s got a little knack for pass rushing," said coach Andy Reid. Catapano is being crosstrained at outside 'backer on early downs and inside 'backer in the nickel. Tue, Jul 23, 2013 10:19:00 PM

Chiefs agreed to terms with No. 207 overall pick DE Mike Catapano on a four-year contract.

The 2012 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year, Catapano logged 12 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss. Standing in at 6-foot-3, 271 pounds, Catapano clocked a 4.75 40-yard dash at the Combine while reeling off 33 reps on the bench press. He could see time at outside linebacker, or be asked to put on weight and play right defensive end in Bob Sutton's 3-4 defense.

Chiefs selected Princeton DE Mike Catapano with the No. 207 overall pick.

Catapano (6-foot-3 7/8, 271) earned the 2012 Bushnell Cup as the Ivy League's Defensive Player of the Year, recording 12 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss. At the Princeton Pro Day, Catapano ran a 4.75 forty with a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 33 bench-press reps. An end in college, Catapano was worked out before the draft by 3-4 teams as an outside 'backer and 4-3 teams at defensive end. It will be interesting to see where the power rusher lines up.
