Sports Illustrated's Dan Banks Looks At Kansas City Chiefs' First Round [Video]


Dan Banks of Sports Illustrated took a minute – literally – to take a look at who the Kansas City Chiefs may draft in the first round on Thursday. No surprise, he went wide receiver. Watch the video for his explanation.

Wide receiver is without a doubt a need for the Chiefs. I will not argue with anyone who says the Chiefs need to address the wide receiver position in the draft and do so with a high pick. The issue I have with taking a receiver in the first round revolves around value. In a draft that is supposed to be so deep in receiver, why not address other positions that may not be as deep in the draft early and take the value receiver late?

Remember, John Dorsey has a long history of taking receivers in rounds two and three and hitting home runs. Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, James Jones, and Greg Jennings were all day two picks. It would make a lot of sense for the Chiefs to look at receiver later and take the best value available in the first round.

    A J Jenkins could be the answer, but if I were John Dorsey I would keep looking. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Chiefs got two receivers out of this draft.

    It isn’t always as obvious as it seems, especially from the cheap seats. Only Dorsey knows if the team has a LG, RT, ILB, and FS already on the team. That is why I leave the tough decisions to the GM. His job is to fix the team. They got pretty close last season. Still, there is more to do, and they have lost a few of the pieces from last season. Fans may know a lot more than given credit, but their most important verdict is a straight up yes or a straight down no. Is this team headed in the right direction? Only time will tell, and the answer will be definitive.
