Factory of Sadness, a FanSided site that covers Cleveland area sports, completed a network-wide NFL mock draft this week with other local sites. KC Kingdom made the pick for the Chiefs and decided to to take USC wide receiver Marqise Lee.
One of the most productive wide receivers in the draft, Lee fits both the needs of the Chiefs and is the best player available in the draft. Kansas City’s passing offense struggled against more stout defenses because of their lack of weapons at wide receiver. Donnie Avery struggled all season as the number two receiver opposite of Dwayne Bowe. His Pro Football Focus grade was below -8, and his key drops in big games hurt the Chiefs frequently. Lee would be a one of a few pieces the Chiefs need to add to their offense if they are going to take the next step in 2014.

Kansas City definitely has a need at wide receiver, specifically someone to play on the other side of Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs also lack explosive offensive players outside of Jamaal Charles. Lee could solve all of these problems.
What do you think Addicts? Did KC Kingdom make the right choice or was there someone who went after Lee who should have been the Chiefs pick?
