Positions KC Chiefs need to address in 2021 NFL Draft
1. Wide Receiver
Chiefs fans were frustrated that the team failed to address the gaping hole at WR2 during the second round of the NFL Draft but this class is deep enough that it’s not the end of the world. Even though I’m highly critical of Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman, and Byron Pringle being the options as the No. 2 wide receivers, it could be a lot worse. At least we’re not in Donnie Avery territory here, folks.
There are still a lot of good names available for the Chiefs to take on Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft. The best names still on the board are Cade Johnson (South Dakota State), Tylan Wallace (Oklahoma State), Amon-Ra St. Brown (USC), and Cornell Powell (Clemson). Any of these guys would provide a huge boost to the wide receiver corps and could slot in as the No. 2 option.
If the Chiefs don’t add a receiver in the fourth round, they should still be able to nab someone like Shi Smith (South Carolina), Demetric Felton (UCLA), or Tre Nixon, or Jacob Harris (both of UCF). There are good options who will be available late in the draft. Remember, Tyreek Hill was a fifth-round pick, and Pringle, who Chiefs fans can’t get enough of, went undrafted. Don’t panic just yet.
These are the five positions that the Kansas City Chiefs need to address the most on Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft.
