Kansas City Chiefs’ First-Round Pick in 2014 NFL Draft Should Be Best Available Player
There are a lot of questions surrounding the Kansas City Chiefs and the 2014 NFL Draft. What the team plans to do with their first-round pick (No. 23 overall) is one of the most intriguing. The majority of mock drafts predict that the Chiefs will snag a wide receiver, which makes a lot of sense.
The reason a lot of people predict that the Chiefs will go wideout isn’t necessarily because it’s the Chiefs biggest need. In fact, you could argue that the offensive line is the team’s biggest weakness after losing Branden Albert, Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah to free agency. The reason wide receiver is a popular prediction is because the best player available is most likely to be at the position. It’s clearly the deepest in the draft.
The Chiefs need help in the secondary, on the offensive line, as well as at wide receiver. Whoever they believe can come in and make the biggest impact in any of those areas is who they need to select. They should aim for the best player, not necessarily the best wide receiver, though the smart money has the best player available being a wide receiver.
But that is certainly no guarantee, as crazy things always happen in the draft. If a great offensive line prospect drops to the Chiefs, they would be foolish not to take him. Kansas City will address all of their areas of need in this May’s draft, but they need to grab the biggest impact player with their first pick.
