Number Four

The fourth best option for the KC Chiefs in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft I believe is former Missouri Tigers wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.

Green-Beckham has made a lot of mistakes as a kid but that doesn’t mean that he can’t succeed in the future.

Troubled players have came into the league and turned their lives around before, take Justin Houston for an example. Much like Houston, Green-Beckham has had problems with Marijuana. Also just like Houston, Green-Beckham is a physical freak and one of the best players in the draft at his position but his stock has been hurt by his off the field issues.

Nobody believes that the KC Chiefs are happy with their wide receiver corp and will look to improve at that position in the draft. There are a lot of first round quality receivers and Green-Beckham makes a lot of sense for them.

"Physical specimen with rare athleticism and triangle numbers (size/speed/strength) for his frame. Plays with balance and core power to keep his center of gravity. Uses long-striding acceleration to get vertical in a hurry and create separation in his routes. Strong plant-and-go burst in his breaks, effortlessly shifting his momentum in his patterns, not having to gear down when changing directions. Physical leaper with high-pointing prowess to climb the ladder and play in the clouds. -Courtesy of Dane Brugler of CBS Sports"

The question that the KC Chiefs will have to ask themselves is if the reward is worth the risk of drafting Green-Beckham. If the answer is yes then they should certainly consider drafting him with the 18th pick in the first round of the draft.

Green-Beckham is currently rated as the 5th best wide receiver, and 28th overall prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft according to CBS Sports. The best case scenario would be for the KC Chiefs to trade back in the draft and still be able to select Green-Beckham, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chiefs selected him at 18 if DeVante Parker, Kevin White, and Amari Cooper are already off the board.
