(Rotoworld) Chiefs signed second-round S Juan Thornhill to a four-year contract.

Analysis: Thornhill (6’0/205) made 36 starts in the Cavs’ secondary, converting from corner to safety as a 2018 senior and earning first-team All-American by tying for the NCAA lead in interceptions (6) and breaking UVA’s single-season record for INT-return yards (141). Thornhill graduated with 13 career picks, and PFF College credited him with a minuscule 43.8 passer rating and 41.9% completion rate when targeted in 2018. Thornhill complemented his elite production with the highest SPARQ score (97th percentile) among safeties at the Combine, including 4.42 wheels with otherworldly vertical (44") and broad (11’9") jumps. Blessed with plus size, athleticism, and natural ballhawking skills, Thornhill profiles similarly to Cowboys S/CB Byron Jones.
