He's a thicker linebacker but he moves well for a guy who's 240 pounds. Will try and get upfield too fast and it'll leave him with a bad angle to the ball. Needs to be more patient. His physical tools are very good and someone will fall in love with that, but his approach needs to be refined.

Willie Gay Jr. selected No. 63 by Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have selected linebacker Willie Gay Jr. with the No. 63 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Willie Gay Jr. is a hard hitting linebacker with a good motor. He has starter upside, but will have to work on his pass coverage skills to be a three down player. A high energy player who can rush the passer and defend the run, only failing to upgrade his coverage skills can keep him from becoming a fixture in the middle of the Chiefs defense. Kansas City has needed a long term answer middle linebacker for what seems like years, and may have found one in Willie Gay Jr. Gay is an LB3 in redraft IDP leagues, but could enter the dynasty league LB2 conversation once he wins the starting job.
