6 of 11

I like Devin Funchess because of his ability to play at both the wide receiver and tight end positions. Sure, Funchess is entering the draft as a wide receiver, but he did play at tight end at the beginning of his Michigan days. The Chiefs have a need at tight end, with Anthony Fasano being released this off season.

  • While NFL.com compares Funchess to Gavin Escobar of the Dallas Cowboys, I imagine he’ll have a much better career than Escobar has. Funchess would provide Smith with a big fierce target down field, and he’d likely be left open a lot, as teams will double team Maclin and possibly Travis Kelce as well.

    "Has mismatch-caliber size, but lack of vertical talent and below-average hands might negate the size to an extent. Funchess was used outside and inside at Michigan and had success from the slot. He has the feel of a hybrid player who can be a big guy at wide receiver or a mismatch nightmare as a move tight end with more weight on his rangy frame. – NFL.com"

    While Funchess would likely be only used as a wide receiver or tight end (probably not both positions), he’d still add depth to the offense, which is why I’d like to hear his name called after the Kansas City Chiefs during the second round.
