Chiefs Plans for Day 3 of the Draft

    The Chiefs have added three players so far in the draft after picking up DE Breeland Speaks, NT Derrick Nnadi and LB Dorian O’Daniel.  A KC draft many predicted would be heavy defense has proved to be just that after the first three rounds.  All three players were identified by Chiefs Weekly as possibilities earlier this week.  Let’s take a look at the remaining players on that board with an emphasis on what positions the team still needs to address.

    Cornerback

    Quenton Meeks – Stanford

    Greg Stroman – Virginia Tech

    D.J. Reed – Kansas State

    Levi Wallace – Alabama

    Dane Cruikshank – Arizona

    Nick Nelson – Wisconsin

    Anthony Averett – Alabama

    Kevin Toliver II – LSU

    Brandon Facyson – Virginia Tech

    Michael Joseph – Dubuque

    This draft is so deep in the secondary that I’m actually quite pleased that Brett Veach didn’t load up early despite many calls for him to do so.  The Chiefs should still be able to add one or two quality cover guys to the roster today.

    Interior Offensive Line

    Wyatt Teller – Virginia Tech

    Skyler Phillips – Idaho State

    Will Clapp – LSU

    Bradley Bozeman – Alabama

    Scott Quessenberry – UCLA

    Brian Allen – Michigan State

    Another area of concern for the Chiefs, this is also a deep position in this class so the Chiefs should be able to add a center that can challenge Mitch Morse or a left guard to upgrade over Brian Witzmann and Parker Ehinger.

    Tight End

    Jaylen Samuels – NC State

    Troy Fumagalli – Wisconsin

    Durham Smythe – Notre Dame

    Dalton Schultz – Stanford

    Cam Serigne – Wake Forest

    While the top guys are off the board, all five TE’s we identified as round 3 or later prospects are still sitting out there.  Travis Kelce is the only sure thing on the roster and adding another weapon to work the middle of the field would really help our young QB.  I’d be thrilled with any of these five.

    Edge Rusher

    Josh Sweat – Florida State

    Jeff Holland – Auburn

    Dorance Armstrong Jr – Kansas

    Ja’Von Rolland-Jones – Arkansas State

    Joe Ostman – Central Michigan

    Breeland Speaks may be considered a 3-4 OLB by Veach, but I don’t see it.  This spot still needs to be addressed with Justin Houston getting older and Dee Ford in a contract year.  You can never have too many pass rushers.

    Wide Receiver

    Jaleel Scott – New Mexico State

    Keke Coutee – Texas Tech

    Dylan Cantrell – Texas Tech

    Adding more weapons for Pat Mahomes still needs to be considered a priority.  I am very much in favor of adding Keke Coutee, a speedster that Mahomes threw to in college.  Dylan Cantrell is more of a possession catcher.  Scott is 6’5” with some really nice long range speed to track down the deep ball and leap over smaller corners to go up and get it.

    Remaining players on my board

    NT Tim Settle – Virgina Tech

    OT Timon Parris – Stony Brook

    DE Da’Shawn Hand – Alabama

    DE Jalyn Holmes – Ohio State

    DE Foley Fatukasi – Uconn

    NT Poona Ford – Texas

    NT Will Geary – Kansas State

    ILB Tegray Scales – Indiana

    ILB Josey Jewell – Iowa

    ILB Shaun Dion Hamilton – Alabama

    SS Marcus Allen – Penn State

    SS Quin Blanding – Virginia

    FS Natrell Jamerson – Wisconsin

    Other guys to keep an eye on

    DT Maurice Hurst – Michigan

    OT Jamarco Jones – Ohio State

    CB Holton Hill – Texas

    OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo – Oklahoma

    OG Tyrell Crosby – Oregon

    WR Equanimeous St. Brown – Notre Dame

    OLB Shaquem Griffin – Central Florida

    OLB Hercules Mata’afa – Washington State

    FS Troy Apke – Notre Dame
