Some fans thought wide receivers Kevin Lockett (Kansas State) and Jaelen Strong (Arizona State) made sense instead of Morse, but it appeared Dorsey had his mind set on Georgia’s Chris Conley to fill a void at that position.

Oregon tackle Jake Fisher was available, eventually going to Cincinnati at 53, but they most likely aren’t going to ask Morse to play tackle. Maxx Williams, a 6-4, 250-pound tight end out of Minnesota was available, but so far Dorsey has proven he is going to take who he wants, and not what any expert or fan feels like will be best for the team.

It remains to be seen if Morse can compete at a high level, but there isn’t anyone saying it’s not possible.

Dorsey and the KC Chiefs get points for filling a need and bringing a high-character guy in to the fold, but we’ll always wonder if they could have landed him sometime later in the draft, and who then would have been scooped up with the 49th pick.

B-. A guy many experts thought would go in the third round, Morse is someone who can make an immediate impact at center, or become a solid backup guard.. OL. Kansas City Chiefs. MITCH MORSE
