The debate has been raging since the end of the season about what position the Kansas City Chiefs should focus on more with their 23rd pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

While the overall consensus seems to be leaning more towards receiver, I wanted to compose a list of defensive backs that the Chiefs should be scouting in the months to come. After the Chiefs cut Dunta Robinson earlier this week, there is a void that needs to be filled at that position- considering the Chiefs now only have three corners currently under contract with Brandon Flowers, Sean Smith, and Marcus Cooper.

The Chiefs also need free safety help as well after getting torched over the top by quarterbacks named Manning, Rivers, and Luck in the second half of the season. I’ve always felt that Kendrick Lewis was good enough to get the job done, but after last season, I’m fully convinced the Chiefs need to move on from him and find someone to compliment Eric Berry in the deep secondary. So with this said, here is my list of defensive back prospects in this upcoming draft.

  • Travis Forsyth

    God, I hope kc drafts Ha Ha Clinton Dix.

      I would love to see the Chiefs get Clinton-Dix as well but I think he will be gone long before pick 23! I’ve seen mock drafts with him going in the top 10…..even though I think that’s a reach. I just don’t think he will make it that far! At this point, I’m not sure if Pryor will even be there at 23

  • Hawthorne

    Add Johnathan Dowling and Dontae Johnson and that’s a pretty good list.

  • freshmeat62

    You should take a look at Reynolds from Stanford.

  • Michael Tavis

    One of my favorite defensive back prospects in this draft is CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste out of Nebraska. 6ft 3inches tall, 215 lbs. and runs a 4.56 40. Projected to go in the 3rd round though I expect him to climb up into the 2nd round after the combine and all that. I would like for the Chiefs to trade Flowers to get a 2nd round pick and use that pick to take Baptiste. He is Bob Suttons ideal corner.
