Three months of seemingly endless predictions, analyses and high hopes culminated from Thursday, May 8 until Saturday, May 10 at New York's Radio City Music Hall. The holy grail of the NFL offseason, the draft did little to disappoint in 2014.

Filled with unexpected trades, inevitable tears, and the annual draft day free fall, there was more drama and tension in the air than the average episode of General Hospital.

For Kansas City, the lion's share of attempts to predict which route it would take on draft day proved to be futile. Its most-pressing needs—WR, FS and OL—weren't addressed until late, if at all. It might not have been the intention heading into Thursday, but it was a byproduct of general manager John Dorsey's draft philosophy nonetheless.

The announcement of Auburn DE Dee Ford with its 23rd overall selection initially went over about as well as an amateur musician's first performance at the Apollo.

Considering that much of Chiefs Nation didn't know a whole lot about Ford, the general feeling following the pick was that of extreme confusion. That confusion soon morphed into frustration, and, as more info slowly trickled out, that frustration gradually turned into acceptance.

Yes, K.C. fans were briefly encased in a claustrophobia-inducing glass case of emotion.

Though, past the first round, most of the Chiefs' selections were met with general approval from its fanbase. Third- and fourth-round picks Phillip Gaines and De'Anthony Thomas conceivably can provide an impact as rookies. Fifth-round selection Aaron Murray could earn his value down the road as well.

So what, if any, effects will Kansas City's draft class have on its 2014 depth chart? Here's a quick glance.
