The Chiefs know sixth-round OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif will be a project and may not contribute much as a rookie.
"It’s a big swing and we’re hoping for a home run," scout Pat Sperduto said. "You’ve got the [coaches who] can develop him. They’ll close the gap as fast as they can and we’ll see how quick he hits the field." LDT, 23, was working mostly as a backup guard during the spring after spending his college career in Canada at McGill University. At 6'5/298, he ran a 4.94 forty, repped 225 pounds 33 times on the bench press, and posted a 33.5-inch vertical. Jun 30 - 7:34 PM

Sixth-round OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif reported to the Chiefs at 307 pounds.

He's up nine pounds from his Pro Day weight. The Canadian Football product is an outstanding athlete, and has been working at both guard and tackle in early-offseason practices. Duvernay-Tardif could push to start by 2015.

Chiefs signed sixth-round OT Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to a four-year contract.

Duvernay-Tardif is two years removed from playing defensive tackle. He needs to pack on some muscle to his 6-foot-5, 298-pound frame, but he's already super athletic. Duvernay-Tardif will be one of OL coach Andy Heck's projects.

Chiefs selected McGill T Laurent Duvernay-Tardif with the No. 200 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Duvernay-Tardif (6-foot-5, 298) was the 2013 Metras Trophy winner as Canadian Football's most outstanding lineman despite spending just two seasons on offense after converting from defensive tackle. "LDT" ran forty times of 4.94 and 5.08 before the draft, adding a 31 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump. To cap off the freakish workout, he did 33 bench-press reps. Duvernay-Tardif is a raw project, but has longer-term starter upside based on his size and movement ability.
