KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

The last pick of the second day of the draft was the first player taken from Clemson.

The Kansas Chiefs selected Clemson linebacker Dorian O'Daniel with pick No. 100 overall. The Tigers are coming off their third straight College Football Playoff appearance and have been pouring players into the NFL in recent years.

The dearth of Tigers in this year's draft is good news for Clemson. The Tigers have three defensive linemen, including tackle Christian Wilkins, who are possible first- and second-round draft picks and all decided to return to school for another season.

Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State all have had five players taken through three rounds.
