The Kansas City Chiefs starting right guard, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif graduated this week from McGill University in Montreal, with his medical doctorate. 

He's been balacing pro football and school since he was drafted by the Chiefs in 2014 (200th overall) out of McGill. The 27-year-old still earned his doctorate in eight years of medical school.

He has started 38 games for Kansas City over the last three seasons and has allowed just two sacks over the past two seasons, according to Pro Football Focus.

So should be put "Dr. Duvernay-Tardif" or "Duvernay-Tardif M.D." on his jersey next season?

And paying off his student loans probably won't be too tough, thanks to a five-year $43 million deal he signed last year.
