KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Six of the Chiefs’ nine selections from the 2015 NFL Draft are now aboard.

The Chiefs and inside linebackers Ramik Wilson and D.J. Alexander agreed to contracts, sources familiar with the situation confirmed Monday afternoon with ChiefsDigest.com. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Chiefs have not announced the transactions.

The signings were later confirmed on Monday’s NFL Transactions report.

Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

The Chiefs selected the 6-2, 237-pound Wilson out of Georgia in the fourth round (118th overall), and the 6-2, 233-pound Alexander out of Oregon State as the first of two fifth-round picks (172nd overall).

Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star was the first to report the signings.

Paylor also first reported the Chiefs agreed to terms with second-round pick Mitch Morse (49th overall) out of Missouri and sixth-round pick Rakeem Nunez-Roches (217th overall) out of Southern Mississippi, and those signings now appear on the NFL Transactions report.

The Chiefs also signed tight end James O’Shaughnessy, a fifth-round pick (173rd oveall) out of Illinois State, and wide receiver Da’Ron Brown, the team’s seventh round pick (233rd overall) out of Northern Illinois, according to the NFL Transactions report.

The remaining unsigned draft selections are cornerback Marcus Peters, who was selected in the first round out of Washington, and third-round picks wide receiver Chris Conley out of Georgia and cornerback Steven Nelson out of Oregon State.
