Many analysts have the Kansas City Chiefs taking a wide receiver in the upcoming draft. Damore’ea Stringfellow could be a good mid round value.

There is no denying that the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver corps under-performed in 2016. You can assign blame to anyone you want, but the lack of production does fall on the receivers themselves at some point. Damore’ea Stringfellow of Ole Miss could be a solid addition to the Chiefs depth chart.

The Kansas City Chiefs will likely go with Jeremy Maclin and Tyreek Hill as their top two receivers in the 2017 season. However, the rest of the receiving corps isn’t set. The Chiefs should absolutely be looking to add talent to the position.

That doesn’t mean the group is without talent. Both Chris Conley and Albert Wilson have demonstrated the ability to be effective receiving threats. Demarcus Robinson also has a lot of potential. There is a good bit of potential for the Chiefs offense to work with. However, you can always use more.
