2014 NFL Mock Draft: The Kansas City Chiefs Select...

Oh, NFL Mock Draft season. How lovely you are.

Yes, Addicts, even though the Chiefs are soon closing out the season and preparing for a playoff run, we here at Arrowhead Addict firmly believe in looking ahead to the draft.

Even Super Bowl winners draft, right? So even if the Chiefs do complete this magical 2013 season with a Super Bowl win, there’s always a reason to look forward to the draft.

For an NFL fan, the draft is magical, is it not?

No matter the year before, the draft provides fans with a glimmer of hope. A rare, immediate look into the future before spring arrives and takes away football until OTA’s.

It truly is a beautiful thing.

Last week, we previewed Josh Sanchez’s mock over at Fansided.com. This week, let’s take a look at Sayre Bedinger of NFL Mocks, mock draft, and see who he picked for your Chiefs. 

And the Kansas City Chiefs select (according to Bedinger): Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

Bedinger explains his pick:

The Chiefs don’t have many playmakers offensively at the receiver positions. Dwayne Bowe is inconsistent, and Dexter McCluster looks like what he is–a running back masquerading as a slot receiver. I think WR is a top need for Kansas City but so is TE. Ebron is a dynamic athlete at the TE position who would provide a mismatch in the KC offense.

 

 My Take:

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

With all the respect in the world to Bedinger, I wholeheartedly disagree with this pick. Though Anthony Fasano has battled injuries, when he’s on, he’s one of Kansas City’s best targets offensively. He and Alex Smith have an instant connection, and that’s one I believe the Chiefs would be wise to trust moving forward.

That’s not even considering that Sean McGrath has proven himself to be a more than capable NFL tight end, and Kansas City took Travis Kelce in the third round of last year’s draft. Kelce, though injured this season, has the size and speed to be effective.

Taking a tight end in the first round would be a mistake, no matter how talented he is.
