Kansas City Chiefs Should Try to Trade Down in 2014 NFL Draft
The Kansas City Chiefs have a few immediate areas of need and a few more that will need to be addressed in the not-too-distant future. The Chiefs lost their 2014 second-round pick in the Alex Smith trade with the San Francisco 49ers and don’t have very much cap space as of now. Since they may not be able to gain much in free agency, it looks like trading down would be a good way for Kansas City to add personnel.
There are a lot of teams who need an upgrade at cornerback and some that need outside linebacker help that pick shortly after the Chiefs. If the right player at one of those positions drops to Kansas City at No. 23 overall they could be in a good position to trade down.
The Chiefs’ biggest needs are at wide receiver, defensive end and in the secondary, and a little help on the offensive line wouldn’t hurt either. This outlook could change if Kansas City were to make a major cut or two to add some cap space, but right now these areas are where they need the most improvement.
GM John Dorsey has a proven track record of evaluating personnel. He joined the Green Bay Packers‘ scouting department in 1991 and helped build one of the most consistently successful NFL franchises for over 20 years. With an eye like Dorsey’s on staff, dropping a few spots to add another pick makes perfect sense.
The Chiefs had one of the busiest and most productive offseasons of 2013, but it has left them with little money and no second-round pick for 2014. If the right opportunity comes knocking, Kansas City would benefit greatly from trading down.
