Florida State defensive end Joshua Kaindoh selected by Kansas City Chiefs
After Janarius Robinson was taken in the fourth round, it didn't take long for the next Florida State player to come off the board.
Defensive end Joshua Kaindoh was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the last pick in the fourth round. Kaindoh was chosen at pick No. 144 overall.
During his time at FSU, Kaindoh never lived to his recruiting potential.
A five-star defensive end and the No. 10 overall recruit in the 2017 class, injuries limited what the Baltimore, Md. native was able to accomplish with the Seminoles.
And yet it's easy to see what some NFL teams may like physically about the 6-foot-7, 265-pound edge rusher as a potential late-round pick.
He looks the part of a physical freak that was limited in what he was able to accomplish with the Seminoles due to injuries which ended his season in 2019 after just three games and limited him somewhat in 2020.

Joshua Kaindoh had modest stats during his last 3 seasons at FSU
While he definitely looks the part, Kaindoh lacks production. He had just four sacks over his final three seasons at FSU and just one over his final two seasons (11 games).
He won't be the highly drafted defensive end he looked destined to be coming out of high school, but if he's able to stay healthy and land with a team that can realize his potential, he could finally become the fearsome pass-rusher he was expected to be for the Seminoles.
