The Kansas City Chiefs may have gone to the playoffs last year after turning the franchise around, but the work is far from over and this offseason will be crucial to continuing the success. For a team that loves to build through the draft, the Chiefs have just one pick in the first two rounds and pick near the back of the first-round thanks to their great season.

Many are wondering what the Chiefs will do, as they have to choose their draft pick carefully as another one won’t come along for a while after it. John Breech from CBSSports believes that the Chiefs could look at a wide receiver or tight end in the first-round to help out Alex Smith.

Per CBSSports.com:

Reid and the Chiefs had the top pick, so they didn’t have to worry about what any other team did. This year, Kansas City won’t make its first selection until the 23rd overall pick. A wide receiver, tight end or anyone in the secondary would probably make the most sense for the Chiefs.

Smith is the reason the Chiefs don’t own a second-round pick, so it may be wise to use the pick they do have to get an elite talent to stretch the field. Kansas City can go in a number of directions but wide receiver is something to consider.

    I think we probably go for Oline, Dline or OLB, but I’m not against taking a WR if he is the BPA.
