GVSU CB Brandon Carr came off the board in the 5th Round today, becoming the school's highest draftee to date. Here is his story and his chances with the Chiefs.

Brandon Carr went from lightly recruited to a middle round NFL Draft pick today as he was selected in the 5th Round, 140th Overall.

That marks the highest a Laker player has been selected in the school's history. David Kircus was the previous high when he was selected in the 6th Round, pick 175 by the Lions in 2003. Keyonta Marshall was selected in the 7th Round (247 overall) by the Eagles two years later.

Carr joins a Chiefs team who came into the draft desperate for Cornerback help. Patrick Surtain returns at one cornerback spot and it is likely that 2nd Round pick Brandon Flowers of Virginia Tech will inherit the other spot.

The other cornerbacks on the roster: Rashad Barksdale, Tyron Brackenridge, Chad Johnson and Dimitri Patterson all have limited game experience, so Carr definitely has an opportunity in Kansas City.

Stay tuned for more draft coverage coming up including where former Lakers Brandon Barnes and Anthony Adams end up as free agents.
