KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)

The Kansas City Chiefs added another piece to their retooled secondary Saturday when they drafted Sanders Commings out of Georgia with the first selection in the fifth round.

Commings played mostly at cornerback with the Bulldogs. But at 6-foot, 216 pounds and with a penchant for hitting hard, his skills appear to translate well to safety.

The Chiefs signed cornerbacks Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson in free agency, but they were still looking for depth at safety behind starters Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis.

Commings was suspended two games as a senior due to a domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend. He said the Chiefs asked about the incident during the draft process and came away convinced that his off-the-field issues were in the past.
