The Kansas City Chiefs have a young secondary, led by Tyrann Mathieu but this year a rookie has stepped up to play a big role in their defense. The rookies name is L’Jarius Sneed. Sneed was drafted in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft out of Louisiana Tech and he is currently leading the NFL in interceptions.

I know it has only been two games, but right now he has two interceptions and just three pass break ups. He also has 9 tackles. It may not be that impressive but when you get your offense the ball back that is how you win.

Sneed knows how to read a ball and knows the wide receiver position better than many defenders. That is because he was a wide receiver when he landed at Louisiana Tech. Sneed converted to cornerback as a true freshman and he would go on to have a pick six against Western Kentucky during the Conference USA Championship Game.

Sneed is a physical freak too. He ran a 4.,37 forty yard dash, and stands 6010. He had a 41 inch vertical, and 10 foot 11 broad jump. He is a physical specimen, He has recorded an interception against the Houston Texans and the Los Angeles Chargers. The interception on Justin Herbert was huge because it led to the Chiefs tying the game. They were down 9-17 when he picked off the deep ball intended for Keenan Allen.

Right now, the kid looks like the steal of the draft. He has been ballin out!
