Davante Adams had two incredible seasons with Fresno State totaling 233 receptions for 3,031 yards and 38 touchdowns. Adams is entering the 2014 NFL Draft and would be a terrific pick-up for the Kansas City Chiefs, who are in need of a wide receiver.

NFL.com says that Adams,
“Wins jumpballs in the red zone and shows very good hand-eye coordination to take the ball away from defenders. Exceptional production.”
The Chiefs struggled in the red zone during the 2013 season and had to settle for field goals often. I’m sure that Alex Smith would love to have a 6’1” receiver who he could have faith in to come down with the ball in the end zone.
“A long-limbed, sure-handed possession receiver with starter-caliber, positional traits. Lacks top-end speed and strength. As a 21-year-old, third-year sophomore entering the draft early, is still growing into his body and developing core strength. A poor man’s Michael Crabtree, Adams possesses very intriguing upside to be groomed.” – NFL.com‘s ‘Bottom Line’ on Adams
Adams is projected (according to CBSSports.com) as the eighth best wide receiver in the draft. He is slated to go sometime in the second round. More than likely, Adams will not end up in Kansas City due to the Chiefs not having a second round pick. The only way the Chiefs could get him is if they took him with the 23rd overall pick or traded into the second round for him.
