Only one player was selected during Thursday’s Supplemental Draft, but Isaiah Battle isn’t the only player eligible for the draft to find himself on an NFL roster.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed Kansas cornerback Kevin Short to a standard three-year undrafted rookie contract.

Short left the Kansas team last September for personal reasons. A junior college transfer from Fort Scott C.C., Short never played for the Jayhawks after redshirting in 2013 due to being academically ineligible.

At 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, Short has good size for the cornerback position. However, his lack of any real collegiate playing experience will likely mean a steep climb in his attempt to make the Chiefs roster.
