The Kansas City Chiefs have selected three players so far in the 2019 NFL Draft. What positions do they need to fixate on during the final four rounds of the draft?

So far, the Kansas City Chiefs have drafted a wide receiver, a safety, and a defensive tackle in the 2019 NFL Draft, and for the most part, those positions needed to be shored up during the draft at some point.

There are four more rounds of this year’s draft and as of now, the Chiefs have three more picks to go. They don’t draft until the sixth round, but they could definitely trade up into rounds four or five if need be.

What positions should these four picks be spent on? Let’s take a look at some areas that could use some upgrading or more depth.

POSITIONS TO ADDRESS ON DAY 3 – CORNERBACK

While it’s a bit surprising that the Chiefs didn’t go after a cornerback on Day 2, they did select Juan Thornhill, who can play both safety and corner. Maybe they’ll utilize him as more of a corner and target another safety in the final four rounds.

The Chiefs signed Bashaud Breeland to a one-year deal during the offseason and they also have Kendall Fuller and Charvarius Ward at the corner spot. That being said, it’s a very important position and one that they need to focus on during Day 3’s festivities.

Some of the best remaining corners are Amani Oruwariye and Julian Love, but it’s doubtful that they get to round six, let alone past the fourth round. More realistic picks could be guys like Blace Brown out of Troy, Michael Jackson out of Miami (FL), or Mark Fields of Clemson.
