Kansas City Chiefs Top Position Battles – Number Three: Second Starting Wide Receiver
The Chiefs need a good complimentary wide receiver to work opposite of Jeremy Maclin. They have a number of interesting choices this year after investing pretty heavily in the position over the last couple of seasons.
a. Albert Wilson – He’s the incumbent, though he’s moved to the slot so far in offseason practices. And last year, statistically, he outperformed the 2014 and 2015 seasons of Rod Streater, Chris Conley (1 year), and Mike Williams…combined.
b. Rod Streater – It’s a one-year “prove it” deal for Streater. So we may get the best he’s ever given. But there’s an equal chance that he’s done in the NFL. Practicing in the slot right now.
c. Chris Conley – Has all the pieces, but still needs to put it together. If he can, adds a dangerous deep ball element to the roster.
d. Demarcus Robinson (watch out for) – Without hesitation I will proclaim him the future #2 wide receiver on this team. I just don’t know that the future is now.
e. Mike Williams (not likely) – Similar to Streater, he’s looking to resurrect his career. Has one advantage in that he’s a very cheap option.
