The 2014 NFL draft is quickly approaching and all general managers are setting their sights on finding the next great talent. After a tremendous turn around season in 2013, the Chiefs again proved that they have a very talented roster that is only a few players away from seriously opening that championship window.

Two positions come to mind when you focus on where the Chiefs really need to get better. The first one being the safety position and the second being wide receiver. Though starting off slow, Andy Reid‘s offense didn’t struggle to find the endzone, particularly later in the season. The Chiefs finished as the number six scoring offense and hung 44 points and 513 yards on the Indianapolis defense in the playoffs- all without having a “legitimate” number 2 receiver.

Make no mistake, solidifying the receiving corp is crucial for the Chiefs moving forward and there is plenty of talent in this years draft that could make a difference for their roster right away. I’ve composed a list of receivers that the Chiefs should be scouting in this years draft. Click next to start.

8 Comments on 2014 NFL Draft: Wide Receiver Prospects The Kansas City Chiefs Should Scout

  1. Hawthorne says:

    I knew we gave two 2nds for Smith what’s that about the third?

  2. Josh Landers says:

    The deal was if we had less than 8 wins it was a 3rd and if we had more than 8 wins it was a 2nd. Not both.

  3. CSconce says:

    Do you have 40 times of any of these guys? Just curious about speed vs size on some of them?

  4. Joel Wagler says:

    KC still has their 3rd round pick.

  5. cyberry says:

    I would love Davante Adams, i think he would compliment Bowe great.. But I think the Chiefs will take Def with top two picks. Trading down is a possibility for a extra 3rd rounder.. There are so many receivers coming out..a couple of at least one will fall..

  6. cyberry says:

    The combine and workouts will change everything. It happens every year..

  7. Josh Michaels says:

    Benjamin- 4.54
    Lee- 4.49
    Bryant- 4.38
    Landry- 4.49
    Adams- 4.56
    Coleman- 4.59

    Those are the 40 times for each of the prospects. I apologize for the mix up on the amount of draft picks. I was thrown off when it said the Chiefs didn’t have a third because it was given to the 49′ers for Alex Smith. I got that info from at least two different websites but it wasn’t correct. Thank you for correcting and it has been changed.

    Personally, i feel like Benjamin, Lee, and Landry are the best top recievers on the board for Kansas City in the first round, other than Sammy Watkins who will surely be gone in the top ten. Bryant is big and fast and the chiefs might be able to snag him later for great value. I still cringe at the fact that the Chargers got Keenan Allen.. I was very high on that kid last year and not only did he kill us, he proved he’s going to be a great player for a long time. Hopefully the Chiefs can find a guy like that in this years class.
