As mentioned a few slides ago, the need for a second tight end on the roster is pretty crucial. Richard Gordon and Demetrius Harris are not the long-term solutions for Kansas City, but luckily there are plenty of decent tight ends in this year’s draft.

Andy Reid loves using a tight end set, and if the Chiefs can take some time to let Bell get the hang of things, this pick could be a steal.

I already discussed Jesse James out of Penn State, who is a massive human being, but Blake Bell is also a great prospect to look at for the fourth round (I don’t think he’ll be on the board past round four).

The most interesting thing about Blake Bell is that he originally played quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners before converting to a tight end for his senior and final season. I like this pick because Bell would not be pressured to start right away. He could learn from Travis Kelce, feel things out, and eventually be a powerful tight end in the league for years to come.

"A newly converted tight end who was a short-yardage specialist and red-zone brute for the Sooners as a quarterback. Bell was looked over by scouting community during the regular season, but he has flashed sure hands and shown improvement as a blocker and could have an NFL future if a team is willing to be patient with him. – NFL.com"
