NFL Draft 2015: Combing over the Kansas City Chiefs’ draft, pick by pick

3 of 4

WR Chris Conley, 6-foot-2, 213 lbs, Georgia

Chris Conley is a wide receiver from Georgia who was under-used but has tremendous upside. When I watched him at the combine, he looked like he was as good as any other receiver on the field. His measurables were off the charts that day as he ran a 4.35 40 (and is known to run an unofficial 4.23), jumped 45 inches and his standing broad jump was 11-foot-7. However, Conley only had 36 receptions as a senior and 45 catches as a junior, averaging 654 yards each of those years.

While Conley’s stats don’t jump off the charts his other measurables do, and the Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson should have fun stretching the field with him and giving quarterback Alex Smith more reasons to go long in 2015.

Chris Conley is a great value here at pick No. 80. Most general managers and coaches like to see more production when they take a wide receiver this high in the draft but that’s the very reason that makes Conley such a good deal.

I don’t think it’s significant that Chris Conley had his best year while catching passes from Aaron Murray while they were both at Georgia in 2013, but it’s worth mentioning. I would like to know if Dorsey and Reid ever asked Murray about his impression of Conley. Who knows, they may get an opportunity to create a meaningful connection for the Chiefs in the future.

Next: And with the compensatory pick...
