Offensive lineman Parker Ehinger has been selected as the 105th pick in the fourth round by the Kansas City Chiefs.

A four-year starter who played all over the offensive line for the Bearcats, Ehinger brings a great deal of versatility to the position and doesn't have glaring weaknesses in his game, which makes him a great pick in the early part of the fourth round for the Chiefs.

This is a great fit for the Chiefs, who needed some added offensive line depth. Ehinger will likely check-in at guard, after playing right tackle, right guard and, most recently, left tackle for Gunner Kiel and the Bearcats. Ehinger is more of a pass protector at this point of his development because of the nature of Cincinnati's spread offense, but he still offers great versatility across the line. He should come in and compete from day one and offer depth as a backup at the very least.

Ehinger was a First Team All-American Athletic Conference selection this past season, was one of four team captains and was an integral part of an offensive line unit that paved the way for Cincinnati's fifth ranked offense that averaged 559.4 yards per game.

We wish Ehinger the best of luck at the next level. He's a quality player who has the ability to latch on for years in the NFL.
