A.J. Cann wasn’t the best player available when the KC Chiefs were on the clock in the third round, but I couldn’t pass up drafting him. As I mentioned in the last slide, the Chiefs did add a few names on the offensive line through free agency, but it never hurts to add insurance. It’s also worth reminding people how awful the KC offensive line was in 2014, allowing 45 quarterback sacks.

Cann is one of the best offensive guards in this year’s draft, and the fact that he was still on the board by this point was shocking.

Funny enough, Zierlein compares Cann to Kansas City’s own Ben Grubbs, which I found interesting and enough of a reason to draft him for sure.

"Consistent four-year starter for the Gamecocks. He has technique issues that need to be coached up in pass protection, but he also has the talent to improve in that area. Powerful drive-blocker who uses leverage to fire out and generate instant movement in tight spaces. He is best-suited to a power scheme. Cann has the plug-and-play traits that could make him an instant starter. – NFL.com"

The biggest needs in this draft were at wide receiver and along the offensive line, and the Kansas City Chiefs have covered their bases in the first three rounds.
