KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs have selected San Diego State defensive tackle Jerome Long with the first of their two seventh-round draft picks.

The Chiefs addressed the most pressing need on their defense by picking Memphis tackle Dontari Poe with the No. 11 pick on Thursday night. They added some depth along the line with Long, who started three years on the line for San Diego State.

Long said he worked out for the Chiefs and knew they were interested.
