2014 NFL Draft: Kansas City Chiefs Select Zach Fulton In Sixth Round


With the 17th pick in the sixth round of the NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Zach Fulton, a guard from Tennessee.

Here is Nolan Nawrocki on Fulton:

Looks the part with good overall size and mass. Strong enough to anchor in pass protection. Flashes thump on contact and ability to down block and seal run lanes. Started 40 games in the SEC and has experience locking horns with NFL-caliber defensive tackles. Has raw traits to develop. Coachable pleaser and will appeal to offensive line coaches. Good teammate.

Kansas City has one more pick left in the draft, which is scheduled for later in the sixth round.

    I’m very relieved that they addressed this hole. I think his teammate Antonio Richardson might’ve been a little more versatile as a T/G, but solid nonetheless.

  • Hawthorne

    So, Draft’s over for us where’s our WR. Are we counting on the right UDFA signing with us? Seems pretty risky.

    • Roc

      It speaks volumes that a WR was not taken. They must really see something In AJ Jenkins

      • Montez K.

        Don’t sleep on Junior Hemingway. Excuse me, Junior “Big Play” Hemingway.

        • Roc

          Yeah him too

      The whole idea of taking BPA is that if a WR is not at the top of your board when you select, you take who is at the top and not reach. Apparently there were no WR’s at the top when D&R were picking.

        D Thomas is the new and hopefully improved McCluster. Just saying watched this dude play a lot and he is fast and pretty Bad A**!

    • Blaize Richardson

      Well for starters we have Bowe who played better late in the year and has been an all-pro in the past. We also have Donnie Avery who has the speed and skills to make plays. He’s inconsistent for sure, but he’s not as bad as people make him out to be. For a #2 receiver there was teams that are worse off than us. We also have AJJ who’s still young and has the physical skills to develop into a productive member of our offense. Throw in wild-cards with potential, like Hemmingway, Dressler, De’Anthony Thomas (if we convert him to slot) and our team isn’t that bad off at all.

      Our offense was putting up lot of points late in the year last season with this group. Add in the new talent we’ve picked up and Kelce who has the potential to be special and we have more than enough talent to win games. Andy Reid is an offensive mastermind. I don’t have any worries at all about our offense.

        I totally agree the O at the skill positions is no worry. Scoring points on offense was not a problem for the most part. The part of the offense we should be concerned with is the O line. We assume that Fisher can swap back to the left and be very effective, and a full off season in the weight room will help him. The guard positions (assuming Allen effective as the starter on one side) should be much more stable with our new guard and the promotion of Rishaw.
        The D last year was the failure. No pressure on QBs, lack of quality safety play, and then we lost both Hali and Houston. We signed a thumper to play inside with DJ, Ford and Walker have known ability to get to the QB, Gaines will challenge Cooper, Abdullah showed good skills, and Cummings is back on the field.

    • BWrangler

      There’s going to be plenty of UDFA WR talent out there. Don’t sneeze at those guys, one of my favorite Chief was a UDFA….

  • Blake Molina

    Like this pick. Add some depth to the interior.

    Read a couple of reviews that said Fulton plays with a nasty/mean streak..have to admit I like that.
