Chiefs Select Defensive Back L'Jarius Sneed in the Fourth Round of the 2020 Draft

The Chiefs selected Sneed with the No. 138 overall pick on Saturday afternoon

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Louisiana Tech defensive back L'Jarius Sneed with the No. 138 overall pick on Saturday afternoon as Day 3 of the 2020 NFL Draft got underway.

The six-foot-tall, 192-pound Sneed was a three-year starter for the Bulldogs, tallying 28 passes-defensed, eight interceptions and three pick-sixes during his career.

L'Jarius (pronounced luh-JARE-ee-us) Sneed made a big play as a true freshman, returning an interception for a touchdown against Western Kentucky in the Conference USA Championship Game. He played in all 14 games that year, starting two (recording 17 tackles along with that one interception). The two-time all-district pick from Minden High School in Louisiana started six of 11 games in 2017 (30 tackles, one interception, six pass breakups), and then began 12 of 13 games as a junior (59 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three picks -- one returned for a touchdown -- and eight pass breakups). Sneed moved from corner to safety for the 2019 season, receiving second-team All-Conference USA recognition after intercepting three passes (scoring a third career touchdown) and breaking up six others while making 73 stops, 3.5 for loss.
