Chiefs coach Andy Reid says outside linebacker Dee Ford showed impressive athleticism during the team's three-day rookie minicamp.

Kansas City selected Ford with the 23rd overall pick in this year's draft. Ford played his college ball at Auburn, where he had 20½ sacks and 27½ tackles for loss in 52 games.
Ford is transitioning from defensive end with the Tigers to outside linebacker with the Chiefs. Reid says Ford has done a great job of learning the defense and his new position.
Ford gives Kansas City another pass rusher after the Chiefs had 47 sacks last season, tied for sixth in the NFL. Reid says Ford "brings a lot of energy."
The rookie minicamp ended on Monday.
