McKenzie: Chiefs will 'whoop up on' dad's Raiders

McKenzie: Chiefs will 'whoop up on' dad's Raiders

Kahlil McKenzie, who was selected out of Tennessee by the Chiefs in the sixth round, was quick to embrace the division rivalry. After the trade, they announced their pick as Tennessee defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie.

The son of Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie is about to become a Chief, and one Raiders great isn't happy about it.

With their fifth pick in the 2018 draft, the Kansas City Chiefs addressed the cornerback position. He facetiously accused his father being behind the ploy.

"It made it just a no-brainer decision for me".

Area scout Pat Sperduto thought of the idea of moving McKenzie when he watched him play during his freshman season. "So that was kind of the projection".

Just a few minutes into his career as a professional offensive lineman, McKenzie already thinks of himself that way. "Now being an offensive lineman, that's what I prefer to play". Needless to say, the McKenzie family probably has the date circled on the calendar. McKenzie posted a photo on Twitter taken of himself talking to the Chiefs on the phone.

Their family and friends didn't exactly look thrilled, though maybe the photo was simply taken at an off time. I use my dad in every sense of the word.

But those high school recruiting ratings didn't translate into on-field success at defensive tackle, so MeKenzie is moving his NFL-ready 6-foot-3, 314-pound frame to offense for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Vols had just four scholarship offensive linemen healthy enough to be on the field against LSU at one point last season.
