SMU defensive back Shakiel Randolph is getting his chance to shine in the NFL.

Randolph has signed a free-agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was the only SMU player to sign with an NFL team this weekend.

A four-year letterman with the Mustangs, Randolph appeared in 40 games, tallying 110 tackles, two fumble recoveries and an interception. He was a linebacker/safety hybrid while at the Hilltop, playing four games at linebacker and six at safety during his senior year. Randolph (6’3, 213 pounds) ran a 4.6 40-yard dash and had a 42-inch vertical jump at SMU’s pro day.

Randolph does have the ability to make the Chiefs roster, a versatile athlete who has yet to reach his ceiling. But injuries were a problem during his time at SMU, so the key will be staying healthy.

Rookie minicamp for the Chiefs starts this weekend.
