Round 7 (27, 216) - Eric Warfield, Nebraska, DB -- Warfield played essentially his entire career with Chiefs, which ended with his third DUI conviction in 2005 and a subsequent suspension by the NFL.
Warfield played in 115 games for the Chiefs, which is absolutely amazing number considering where he was drafted. Off the field troubles aside, Eric Warfield was the steal of the draft for the Chiefs. His value was tremendous. Always battling for his job, Warfield beat out a number of Chiefs prospects throughout the years. Never super talented, he made more of his NFL career than the vast majority of 7th round picks. Grade: A- Notables taken recently after this pick: None
Round 7 (35, 224) - Ernest Blackwell, Missouri, RB (Compensatory pick) -- A fullback who was more of a large running back at Missouri, Blackwell obviously found it difficult to beat out Tony Richardson, the Chiefs' future Pro Bowl fullback. Blackwell battled a hamstring injury after he was drafted and never took the field as a member of the Chiefs. He was released before the 1998 season
