Former Vols offensive lineman Zach Fulton, who was drafted by the Chiefs in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL draft, is getting first team reps with Kansas City during OTA’s.

Fulton, surprisingly, was the second Tennessee offensive lineman selected in the NFL Draft in May.
Most analysts and fans assumed Antonio Richardson would go before Fulton, but that wasn’t the case.
Fulton started in 40 of his 47 career games at Tennessee, with each of those starts coming at right guard.
The Chiefs essentially got a player with extensive SEC experience for pennies on the dollar.
Who knows if Fulton will end up starting for the Chiefs this season (afterall it’s only OTA’s), but if he does then Kansas City may be the benefactors of one of the biggest steals in the draft.
Like we said, it’s only OTA’s, but the outlook is positive so far for Zach Fulton.
