Even after making the playoffs last year, the Kansas City Chiefs have a lot of work to do and a lot of needs to address if they're going to make a return trip to the postseason in 2014. Kansas City has to make good use of all of its draft picks, and to make that happen, here are five prospects they should target on Day 3 of the 2014 NFL Draft.
The Chiefs need help along the offensive line, and Bodine is a player who can eventually grow into being an NFL starter. He is a great selection for the middle rounds.
The Chiefs lost Dexter McCluster in free agency, so they could use a versatile receiver who can also return kicks, and Saunders gives them that. Saunders won't have a huge role in an NFL offense, but Andy Reid will find a way to get a player with his speed some touches and put him in position to help the team.
Hubbard will go off the board early on Day 3, and if the Chiefs can get him, he'll provide great depth to Kansas City's great linebacking corps to guard against injury. Despite the stigma against Alabama players, Hubbard is a great talent who could end up being a steal as a Day 3 pick.
White will be available in the late rounds, and he'll give the Chiefs a change-of-pace back to complement Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis. He'll give Kansas City a little more speed coming out of their backfield, which is something the team could use.
Branden Albert is gone, moving Eric Fisher to left tackle and opening up a spot at right tackle. Patchan would be a nice fit at right tackle if the Chiefs aren't able to address that need early in the draft. He's had plenty of injuries which have held him back and caused him to drop to a Day 3 prospect, but he's talented enough to be a solid NFL right tackle.
