Pacheco was selected by the Chiefs in the seventh round of April's draft. Pacheco is a big, fast back who posted the best speed score in this class at the combine (4.37 40-yard dash at 216 pounds). He was a factor in the Rutgers backfield during all four seasons at the school, ending up with a 563-2442-18 rushing line and 47-249-1 receiving line. Pacheco's collegiate efficiency was about as poor as it gets (4.3 YPC and 3.7 YPT are both worst in this class), though he had little help (his 1.6 yards before contact is easily lowest in the class). Pacheco was also weak in the YAC and FMT categories, but added some value as a returner and pass blocker. He'll battle for touches behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire and perhaps Ronald Jones.
Pacheco turned heads early in training camp, and was declared the team's leading candidate to return kicks in the regular season. He's got good instincts and is a hard runner, and cannot be completely ruled out of the backfield mix as the season progresses.
