The votes are in and it is now time to announce the Readers’ first of two sixth round picks for the Kansas City Chiefs.
With the 193rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Readers’ of Arrowhead Addict select Devin Street, a wide receiver from Pittsburgh.
Really love this pick. Street has excellent size and solid speed to go with versatility in where he can be lined up on the field. He’s a high character guy with a good work ethic and seems like the typer of player who could grow into the Jason Avant role in Andy Reid’s offense.
Here’s where the Readers’ draft is through five of six picks:
1st Round: S Calvin Pryor
3rd Round: WR Donte Moncrief
4th Round: OT Ja’Waun James
5th Round: RB/WR De’Anthony Thomas
6th Round: WR Devin Street
Strong draft so far. Let’s finish strong.
DL TAYLOR HART
Has the body and frame to succeed in three and five technique. Probably more a future run down stuffer than a pass rusher.
ILB ANDREW JACKSON
A future “Joe Mays” type with decent athleticism and a good ceiling. Has some work ethic and character issues. A good locker room and coaching could unlock a starting-caliber football player.
TE JACOB PEDERSON
A solid backup tight end with decent hands and good blocking skills. Does not have a great ceiling but would provide decent depth as a sixth round pick behind Travis Kelce and Anthony Thomas.
WR JALEN SAUNDERS
An undersized, speedy wide receiver who is strong in the return game. Durability concerns limit his upside.
OL TRAI TURNER
Strong run blocker who still has a lot of development left in the passing game. Good coaching could unlock staring right guard upside in a year or two.
So who is it going to be, Addicts?
