Chiefs take 'Nova DE Tanoh Kpassgnon in draft's third round

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) There is almost nothing in Tanoh Kpassgnon's story that portends NFL excellence.

His parents were raised in the Ivory Coast and Uganda, where football is about as foreign as it can get. He didn't start playing until later in life, preferring soccer instead. And he hardly got a sniff from big-name schools, instead spending four years at Villanova.

Yet what he accomplished for the Wildcats, and what he showcased during the Senior Bowl and the scouting combine, ran counter to that upbringing. And it was enough to intrigue the Kansas City Chiefs enough to choose the raw defensive end in the second round of the draft Friday night.
