2014 NFL Draft: 5 Late-Round Sleepers Kansas City Chiefs Should Target

The Kansas City Chiefs need to play the 2014 NFL Draft very smart. Without a second-round pick, they'll need to find some undervalued talent in the later rounds to make the most of it. Let's take a look at five sleepers the Chiefs should target in the later rounds.

Latimer may have boosted his stock to the middle rounds of the draft with his impressive pro day, but he may still drop a bit with so many talented receivers in this class.

Hawkins still needs some polishing, but the two-time Second-Team All Big 12 selection has plenty of potential. At 6-foot-5, 301-pounds, he has the size and athleticism to develop into solid player in a big area of need for the Chiefs.

Most mock drafts have the Chiefs picking a receiver in the first round, but they could go another direction if the best player available is at another position. Washington would be a great late-round pick to help fill Kansas City's wide receiver need. The 6-foot-4 wideout ran a 4.46 40-yard dash at the combine and has the raw abilities and size to develop into something special.

Aiken's size and athletic ability would make him a great fit for the Chiefs' secondary. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound corner could bring a nice boost to one of Kansas City's biggest weak spots from last season. A 2010 misdemeanor theft conviction that led to his dismissal from Illinois causes some character concerns, but that was four years ago, so let's give him the benefit of the doubt.

The Chiefs need some help on the offensive line, and Fulton could be their answer. The 6-foot-5, 316-pounder has a great work ethic and 40 starts under his belt with the Tennessee Volunteers. That adds up to a lot of experience against some very talented SEC defensive lines.
