Kansas City Chiefs
Despite having the top overall pick in the draft, the Chiefs put together a disappointing draft corps. Eric Fisher was a fine opening pick, as offensive tackle was a major need for Kansas City. It could be argued that Luke Joeckel has a slight edge in talent and thus should have been the number one pick, but the Chiefs did not give up much (if anything) in picking Fisher. The Chiefs started to make real mistakes with their next pick. Tight end Travis Kelce could help the Chiefs’ receiving corps, however, tight end was not a pressing need for Kansas City. Kelce also had off-field issues, which makes the pick even more questionable.
The Chiefs selected running back Knile Davis with the ninety-sixth pick. While Kanas City needs depth at running back, Davis was not a good selection this early in the draft. In 2012, he ran for only 377 yards, and he has had trouble holding onto the ball. There were no standouts among Kansas City’s other picks. Overall, Kansas City failed in finding good value for their picks, and also made some questionable picks at non-need positions.
