In our exploration of the Chiefs’ draft needs, we noted the club has only two picks in the first three rounds. The second-rounder, as you probably recall, was dealt to San Francisco for quarterback Alex Smith.
Considering Smith’s 2013 play and the value of his position, it’s hard to have many qualms with giving up an early second-day pick for a starting quarterback in his prime. Nevertheless, the Chiefs enter the 2014 NFL Draft with a 64-selection gap from when they pick in Round One (No. 23) to when they are slated to be on the clock in Round Three (No. 87).
It’s quite possible the Chiefs could look to add picks; this seems a tailor-made situation for such an approach, frankly. For now, though, let’s assume they stand pat at No. 23 and No. 87. In that case — with all that time between Rounds One and Three — should they draft an offensive or defensive player first? Cast your vote and share your thoughts in the comments.
