Dorial Green-Beckham: Should KC trade up on Day 2 if ex-Mizzou wideout is available?

Let me start by saying this: I don’t think wide receiver is the biggest need for the Kansas City Chiefs. All things considered, I don’t even know if it ranks in the top three.

Currently, the Chiefs own an abominable offensive line that added Ben Grubbs but axed Rodney Hudson. You can tweak the lineup umpteen times, but it still translates to “crapshoot.” (If you’re pinning your hopes on Jeff Allen and Donald Stephenson, Godspeed.)

Kansas City boasts a secondary that anchored the league’s No. 2 pass defense. However, that same secondary finds itself swamped with expiring contracts.

The team also has questions at inside linebacker; a group that stars Derrick Johnson, who’s an aging vet recovering from a torn Achilles, and Josh Mauga, who’s Josh Mauga.

You can argue where “receiver” ranks on the list of needs, but you can’t argue its inclusion. The Chiefs need a split end (or “X”)—someone who can stand on the line of scrimmage and consistently beat press coverage—to complement Jeremy Maclin. And while Dorial Green-Beckham fits the bill, he’s as troubled as he is talented.

That being the case, if John Dorsey gets wind of a team eyeing the rookie toward the top of Round 2, should he trade up and roll the dice?
