The “Big 3” Wide Receivers (Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker)
For most people, the clear top need for the Chiefs is wide receiver (For the record, I’m still Team OL). There are three legit star wide receiver prospects in the 2015 draft, but after all three had strong performances at the combine, it is now very unlikely that any of them will be available for Kansas City if they stay put at No. 18. I wouldn’t be surprised if all three were gone in the first 12 picks.
La’el Collins – OT – LSU
If you have been following my draft “wishes” for the Chiefs so far this offseason, you know that my two favorite players for KC are Iowa’s Brandon Scherff and LSU’s La’el Collins. While I knew that Scherff was likely going to go too high, I was holding out hope that Collins might be an option. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, Collins was arguably the most impressive lineman at the combine. Collins looks like he could walk right in and lock down the right tackle spot for just about any team in the NFL. A player like that doesn’t slide past 17 teams, especially when so many teams are looking for OL help.
Next, there are a few players who have been mocked to the Chiefs who, relative to first-round didn’t have standout performances.
