Chiefs Draft Needs
TE, OT, C, DT, OLB, ILB, FS
Offensive line needs some help but adding to the defense is probably top priority.
26. Kansas City Chiefs Select: WR Jonathan Baldwin
The Chiefs had an opportunity to draft ahead of the Ravens because they failed to draft in their time to do so and the Chiefs selected wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin. I’m concerned about Baldwin for his attitude problems and he will hurt Dwayne Bowe’s down field plays because Baldwin will slowly take them away.
Draft Grade: C
55. Offensive Lineman Rodney Hudson
This is what I wanted to see last night as the Chiefs need to keep adding to their offensive line to help Matt Cassel and the running game.
70. Defensive Lineman Justin Houston
Nice addition to the front line for rotational help. This team needed help up front for the run.
86. Defensive End Allen Bailey
More depth on the front line.
118. Defensive Back Jalil Brown
135. Quarterback Ricky Stanzi
140. Outside Linebackers Gabe Miller
199. Defensive Lineman Jerrell Powe
223. Running Back Shane Bannon
