KC Chiefs 2015 NFL Draft Wish List: Day Three

Okay so the KC Chiefs have added not one, but TWO cornerbacks in the first two days of the draft. While a lot of people aren’t happy about that, it was a smart decision on John Dorsey‘s part.

Sure, the Chiefs secondary was pretty dang impressive last season, you can’t expect that to remain exactly the same. Sean Smith could face a two-game suspension early on, Eric Berry‘s status for 2015 is unknown at this point, and will Ron Parker play lights out like he did in 2014? You just don’t know.

Adding a safety in the later rounds makes sense because you want that secondary to have enough quality players. Justin Cox could be an option later on due to his speed and great footwork. Some seem worried that he’s a little “too big” for a safety, but that doesn’t worry me too much.

Husain Abdullah, Eric Berry, Tyvon Branch, and Ron Parker are the safeties on the KC roster, and adding one more doesn’t seem like a bad idea, especially not in the later rounds and with a compensatory pick.

"Cox used his speed to dominate at the JUCO level, but he wasn’t able to post the same level of production while at Mississippi State. Cox doesn’t show much anticipation in the run or passing games and doesn’t have the frame or functional level of physicality teams look for from their safeties. While he is expected to post some big numbers at the combine, the tape isn’t as kind to him. – NFL.com"
