3 Late-Round WR Steals the Chiefs Should Draft Given Rashee Rice Situation

The Rashee Rice situation isn't ending anytime soon. With that in mind, here are three late-round WR steals that the Kansas City Chiefs can target this week to help Patrick Mahomes.

2. Anthony Gould, Oregon State

if the Chiefs are hoping to add another speedy wide receiver to their roster, Oregon State's Anthony Gould could be their guy.

The diminutive playmaker (5-foot-8, 174 pounds) has electric to watch in his final year with the Beavers. Gould made defenders look silly as he set new career highs in receptions (44) and receiving yards (718) while finding the end zone twice. He was also an effective returner during his time at Oregon State, returning 21 punts for 369 yards and a pair of TDs in the last two seasons alone.

Gould's blistering speed — his 1.49-second 10-yard split was No. 1 among WRs — makes him the perfect downfield threat for Mahomes. Considering how Kansas City opted not to re-sign Mecole Hardman this offseason, there's a clear opening for the Oregon State product on the roster whether that's as a pass-catcher or return in Year 1.

Under the right circumstances, I could see Gould becoming a Tyreek Hill-lite. After all, Hill was another undersized receiver who some experts projected to be nothing more than a return specialist. I'm not saying that Gould will replicate the veteran's success, but it's clear that the Chiefs know how to get the most out of small yet speedy WRs.
