Chiefs Sign Former K-State CB Ekow Boye-Doe

The Kansas City Chiefs are bringing in another Kansas kid with the signing of former Kansas State cornerback, Ekow Boye-Doe.

The Lawrence native played opposite second-round pick Julius Brents for K-State last season earning key minutes for the Wildcats against TCU in the Big 12 Championship, before sustaining an injury and missing the Sugar Bowl against Alabama.

 

Boye-Doe made headlines at K-State’s official team pro day where he ran a blazing-fast 4.27 40-yard dash in front of NFL Scouts.

Boye-Dow has been a solid player for the Wildcats over the past four seasons opposite NFL players like Colts DB Julius Brents, Lions DB AJ Parker, and Jets DB DJ Reed. The Wildcats have quietly developed some top-name cornerbacks at the NFL level, including Reed, Parker, LA Rams DB Russ Yeast, and DB for the Chicago Bears, Duke Shelley.

The Chiefs have a knack for adding athletic playmakers to the depth chart and working them onto the field for both Steve Spagnoulo’s defense, and Dave Toub’s special teams, and with Boye-Doe becoming the latest edition to the ranks, the sky is the limit. While speed isn’t the only thing that makes a cornerback impressive, Boye-Dow has shown some big play capability during his time in Manhattan, and if running a 4.2 40-yard dash is what it takes to get to the NFL, Boye-Dow is a deserving player.
