As the 2010 season wound down, it was clear that the Kansas City Chiefs had one glaring weakness: wide receiver.

Outside of Pro Bowl wideout Dwayne Bowe, the Chiefs didn't have possess another reliable receiver on their roster.

In last month's draft, KC upgraded their receiving corps by selecting former University of Pittsburgh star Jonathan Baldwin with their first-round pick.

The Chiefs likely drafted Baldwin to pair with Bowe as the two starting receivers for KC's offense in '11.

Many thought that the Chiefs would select another receiver later in the draft, but it never happened.

With the draft now a part of the past, Kansas City has no choice but to turn to free agency in order to acquire another productive receiver for 2011.

That's where former University of Central Missouri wideout Jamorris Warren comes into the discussion.

The 6'1, 197 lb receiver had over 1,400 yards and 20 TDs last season in a breakout season for the Mules.

He has great speed, judging by the 4.5 40-meter dash that he clocked at the NFL combine earlier this year.

However, the big thing that Warren is known for is his great set of hands.

I can attest to this, as I have seen him throughout his career at UCM, and he made one spectacular catch after another while playing for D-II Central Missouri.

First-round draft pick Blaine Gabbert knows a little about this, as he worked out with Warren at a Pro Day that they both attended in Columbia just a few weeks before the draft.

Warren has the ability to be a big play wide receiver for the Chiefs and they faster they realize this, the faster he could be the next diamond in the rough for Scott Pioli and his staff.
