Round 1, Pick No. 23: Marqise Lee, WR, USC
Concerning receivers, is Lee Kansas City's first choice? No.
But talents like Odell Beckham and Brandin Cooks have attracted heaps of interest from around the league, and it's highly doubtful that Dorsey trades up—especially when considering his meager amount of picks—to select one of the two.
Lee possesses speed that rivals Donnie Avery's, but he's infinitely sharper in every other facet of the game.
If opposing corners play press-man, they risk being dusted by his vertical speed. Conversely, if they afford him a cushion, Lee will pepper them with short to intermediate routes, and even then, he still doubles as a home run threat.
As of now, the Chiefs offense features only one consistent playmaker: Jamaal Charles. Enlisting Lee adds another game-breaker to Reid's offensive repertoire and forces safeties to stay honest.
Round 3, Pick No. 87: Dakota Dozier, G/OT, Furman
Selecting an offensive linemen will never win over the hearts of fans, but snagging a star-studded wideout makes little sense if the quarterback is running with the bulls on every other down.
Kansas City lacks stability on both sides of center; Dozier (partially) rectifies that.
Evaluating Furman's mobile mountain, CBS Sports' Derek Stephens writes:
COMPARES TO: Jonathan Cooper, Guard, Arizona Cardinals - Dozier's "plus" athleticism and movement skills are extremely impressive for a big man, and may remind some of last year's seventh overall pick Jonathan Cooper. Dozier's limited experience against high-level competition and very recent conversion to guard (Shrine Game) certainly differentiate him from Cooper in terms of draft value, but his upside could be massive and it wouldn't be surprising to see him gone by the end of round three.
Reid has a soft spot for versatile, athletic linemen, and Dozier is cut from that cloth.
Round 4, Pick No. 124: Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma
Colvin is a mid-round gem waiting to be excavated.
He's capable of anchoring the slot or outside, and he regularly employed press coverage at Oklahoma.
Colvin's fundamentals immediately jump out on tape, as he rarely opens his hips prior to the receiver committing to a break. He also flashes impressive ball skills, and though he's prone to over-pursuing at times, the Oklahoma product is a willing tackler.
As B/R's Matt Miller notes, if it weren't for a torn ACL, Colvin's skills could've warranted a top-32 selection:
Round 5, Pick No. 163: Marqueston Huff, FS, Wyoming
Being that he can hold down either safety position, signing Huff adds another layer of diversity to the secondary.
The small-school late-rounder ranks among the most feared hitters in the class and offers a back-end road block in run support.
That being said, typecasting him as the stereotypical hard hitter would be a mistake. At the combine, Huff's 4.49 40 time eclipsed that of both Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor, tying for third overall among safeties.
With a few years of coaching, Wyoming's bone rattler can develop into a regular contributor.
Round 6, Pick No. 193: Michael Campanaro, WR, Wake Forest
Like Huff, Campanaro is severely underrated.
By the time he left Wake Forest, he was the school's all-time leader in receptions (229). After studying his tape, it's easy to see why.
Campanaro is the archetypal slot receiver, running textbook routes with pinpoint precision. When given a plot of open field, he becomes a shifty, fleet-footed playmaker who's stronger than he appears.
Unlike most slot receivers, Campanaro actually owns an above-average set of hands, rarely allowing passes to contact his shoulder pads.
With the way that Kansas City's roster is currently constructed, he would, at the very least, challenge Weston Dressler to be the primary slot option.
Round 6, Pick No. 200: Ryan Carrethers, NT, Arkansas State
Since switching to a 3-4, backup nose tackle has been a revolving door.
Though the team signed Cory Grissom, his past is painted with injury problems. Carrethers can bring a hint of consistency to the table.
B/R's Ryan Lownes adds:
As one of this draft’s few pure nose tackles, Ryan Carrethers fits inside in either a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. A former wrestler with an understanding of leverage, he is capable of playing 0-, 1- and 2-technique.
While he is extremely strong and flashes some functional power, he appears to be a marginal athlete by NFL standards and will need to adjust to a drastically higher level of competition. He is worthy of a late-round selection and will earn his paychecks as a rotational run-stuffer.
Obviously, Carrethers isn't Dontari Poe, but he's a remarkably durable fill-in whose raw strength and size make him a worthwhile investment.
