The Kansas City Chiefs grabbed their first wide receiver of the draft in the fourth round when they made Demarcus Robinson a member of their team. Robinson played college ball at Florida, and had some issues there, but was the team’s leading receiver for two seasons.
The second wide receiver job will likely go to Chris Conley, Rod Streater, or Albert Wilson, but that’s why the preseason games are played.
The number two wide receiver spot has been a frustrating one for the Chiefs, as they’ve not had a consistent guy starting there over the past few years.
Robinson can be that guy someday, but it won’t be in 2016. He has too much other competition this year, and I think we’ll mainly see Robinson as a slot receiver and on special teams during his rookie season.
The second wide receiver job will likely go to Chris Conley, Rod Streater, or Albert Wilson, but that’s why the preseason games are played. Plus, if anything were to happen to Jeremy Maclin (please knock on wood), the Chiefs would have to start two of the aforementioned guys.
While Demarcus Robinson has the capabilities of being the future number two guy for Kansas City, 2016 won’t be that year.
