- Chiefs like how they helped roster depth in draft...The Kansas City Chiefs began the 2014 NFL Draft with a pass rusher and cover guy, and ended their participation with a pair of offensive line prospects. "I think right now we've improved the Kansas City Chiefs and improved that competitive depth that we talk about," said general manager John Dorsey after wrapping up his second draft with the Chiefs. "Right now we feel pretty good about where we are at this stage, but we'll see." After getting just one player in Thursday's first round and one player in Friday's second and third rounds, they added four in Saturday's drafting action and caused some conversation with three of those choices.
By grabbing Oregon running back De'Anthony Thomas in the fourth round, the Chiefs added one of the more explosive offensive and special teams performers coming out of the college this year. He projects as a faster and more talented Dexter McCluster, who left the Chiefs in free agency and landed with the Tennessee Titans. "He's a hybrid type of player," said Dorsey. "He's a niche player; he can play running back, he can play slot receiver and he can return. With a coach like Andy Reid, you have somebody that's going to take advantage of all of that." - The Sports Xchange
