There are few players in the NFL draft who have a better fallback plan than Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, the offensive tackle taken by the Kansas City Chiefs in the sixth round.

After all, he only needs one more year of medical school before he becomes Doc Larry.

The 23-year-old Canadian from McGill University is planning to put those career aspirations on hold to play football for the Chiefs. He was supposed to fly to Kansas City this week and immerse himself in an orientation program, with a rookie minicamp beginning May 24.

Duvernay-Tardif first turned heads at the East-West Shrine Game, and then impressed the Chiefs enough at a personal pro day that they drafted him on Saturday.
