With the NFL Combine rapidly approaching (February 22nd – 25th) I thought we should look at some players who the Kansas City Chiefs should seriously consider.

We have all heard the Chiefs associated with the likes of wide receivers Marqise Lee and Kelvin Benjamin, defensive end Kony Ealy, cornerback Justin Gilbert, and tight end Jace Amaro.

I want to take a closer look at some names that you will hear called later in the draft, so here are players the Chiefs should consider in rounds 4, 5, and 6.

4th round pick 120

CB Keith McGill – Utah: Coming in at 6 ft 3 inches tall, 214 lbs. and running a 4.49 second 40 yard dash, Keith McGill has the size and speed to be successful in Bob Suttons defense, and is rated as the 12th best cornerback.

McGill was selected as an All-Pac 12 honorable mention for the 2013 college football season. He has been compared to Seattles’ corners for his size and ball skills.

He attended the senior bowl where he appeared to be battling cramps a majority of the practice and that could also explain why he was often beaten by opposing wide receivers though his performance raised many questions about his toughness and ability as a cornerback.

There is also a possibility of transitioning him into a safety, though that is not his preferred position.
