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.
