Round 4 (122): Donovan Edwards, RB, Michigan

Donovan Edwards has been the electric option in the best thunder-lightning running back duo in college football. Edwards is a 6'1", 210-pound back who has averaged 5.4 yards per carry in his collegiate career at Michigan. Looking at the offensive line talent in Ann Arbor, it's easy to doubt a Michigan back, but his skill as a pass catcher is what NFL teams will like. He's quick and explosive and would be an ideal secondary back for an NFL offense.

How he fits: This isn't a loaded running back class, but the Chiefs do have a need there. Jerick McKinnon is not only aging and injury-prone, but he's also failed to carry the ball much. He's been great in pass protection and catching but the Chiefs need another viable option there. Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be headed to free agency as well so the Chiefs really have some backfilling to do behind Isiah Pacheco. The Chiefs need playmakers on offense and they can't rule out a game-changing back as an option to make splash plays.

Shades of: Melvin Gordon
