We’ve talked about a host of wide receivers the Chiefs could draft this weekend. At times it seems we’ve named half of the draft class: Kelvin Benjamin… Odell Beckham… Brandin Cooks… Marqise Lee… Cody Latimer… Jeff Janis… Donte Moncrief… Dri Archer…

It really does seem to go on forever.

One pocket of wide receivers we haven’t talked about too much are the receivers who could go in the second round. This is interesting because this maybe the most likely area the Chiefs draft a wide receiver if the plan is to trade down from 23 overall. There are several wide receivers who could be available to the Chiefs at the top of the second round if they were to make a deal with Houston or Tampa Bay or one of the other teams who could be looking to trade up for a quarterback.

Here are the three receivers the Chiefs may have the most interest in should they trade down into the top of the second round.

    Id sure like to see us draft Archer with Reid loving DMC so much its been said Archer is a faster version.Reid has to be in man love with the guy! I say defense early CB, S, CB trade Flowers for pick/picks.Then get Janis, Archer and OL later.If we trade Flowers it will save us 3.? Mill this year and 11.? Next.Sign a corner or safety for insurance.Defense is key we have to stop Denver not get into a shootout with them.Seahawks showed what it takes.And it wasnt great WRs that beat them!!D FENCE!!

    Richardson has elite speed, but, doesn’t fight for the ball. He has durability issues, as well. I don’t see him as a solid Number 2 ready to move up to Number 1.

    Allen Robinson being compared to Boldin is interesting. Out of 23 wide outs in the 2003 combine, Boldin was the slowest of them all in the 40. Boldin’s time in the 3 cone was almost equal to that of Andre Johnson. Robinson’s 3 cone is better than both of them. Funny thing about Boldin is Arizona took him in the second round as they had taken a much faster wide out in the 1st round. Boldin ended up beating him out of starting at the Number 2 wide out and had a far superior first season with the Cardinals. Boldin was two inches shorter than Bryant Johnson, as well and his career is still on going, whereas, Johnson is out of the NFL.

    All this talk about the Chiefs trading down and all the rumors that have been circulating about who they will pick, WR, QB, DE, S. CB, trading Flowers, or Berry for draft picks, etc., etc., is just that….talk. Don’t be surprised if most of this just floats away into oblivion come draft day. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the Chiefs stay where they are at in the draft and select what most people think they will pick, a WR. If they don’t then, that will be somewhat of a surprise. The Chiefs know they need a WR with some speed and there are plenty of those in the first round. If I was a betting man I would put my money on that pick, BUT, then I have been wrong many times before with guessing on who/whom the Chiefs have picked in the first round in the past. I am just tired of all of these so called for real rumors that have circulated these past several weeks. I truly hope the NFL goes back to having the draft in April next year so all the so called predictors don’t have so much time on their hands to throw out all of these scenarios! It makes it even more nerve racking for some of us die hard fans!

      Have you read where Goodell wants to move it further into May and have it run 4 days?

      Much of the rumor talk from so-called sources in the NFL has two purposes. Deflect and entice other GMs to make moves.

        Moving it further into May would be brutal! I guess Goodell wants to practically make the NFL football season a 12 month gig!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Robinson and Richardson are probably the most intriguing from this list, but there’s a good chance all three go in the second-round. Barring a trade, we may not have a shot at any of them.

    • Ben Nielsen

      Not a Matthews fan?

    • David Gonzales

      I can see us drafting Allen Robinson, Jordan Matthews, or Donte Moncrief in the 2nd if we trade back for additional picks. Martavis Bryant is going to be the steal of the draft. 6′ 4″ with 4.35 speed.

    Elite speed can be great if you combine that speed with football talent. However, consider the very fast Anthony Hancock, a number one pick by the Chiefs, who could never run the pattern twice. He was so far off on some of his patterns, Kenny stopped looking for him and went with the slower, but, wiser Carlos Carson.

  • Randall Miller

    I do not care which wideout is picked, or what free safety or DL is picked. BUT the abyss at RG MUST be addressed before any of that other crazy talk, and his depth. Tons of talent at WR and DL in later rounds, but a mean, quick footed, technique driven, strong starting caliber NFL Right Guard is paramount.

    • Ben Nielsen

      Lot of those in rounds three thru five historically.
