Kansas City Chiefs draft rumors: RB will be mid-round target

The Kansas City Chiefs enjoyed a huge turnaround in 2013, but they still have a few areas that they will need to improve. The Chiefs are expected to look at offensive weapons on the outside to help out quarterback Alex Smith next season, but they may be looking at adding another running back despite having one of the best in the league.

According to reports, the Chiefs fear that Knile Davis, who suffered a knee sprain and fractured fibula in the postseason, will not be ready for the start of the season.

In order to provide some relief for Jamaal Charles, Kansas City will need to add another back. Whether that player comes through free agency or the NFL Draft remains to be seen, but expect an addition to be made.

From WalterFootball.com:

The Chiefs will look to add another running back in free agency or the middle rounds of the draft because they believe Knile Davis won’t be ready for the start of the season, according to a Chiefs source.

Davis has also been plagued by fumbling issues, so he should worry about what running back the team could bring in to take his place.

One interesting option for the Chiefs would be Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde or Towson’s Terrance West, who could provide a smash-mouth running style that would perfectly compliment Charles in the backfield.
