The Kansas City Chiefs narrowly missed out on the playoffs despite their 9-7 record in 2014, and they’re looking to make the offseason moves necessary to get them back to the postseason. Here are the positions they’re targeting in the draft to make that happen:
Eric Berry was the leader of Kansas City's secondary, but his status is very much in the air as he deals with Hodgkin Lymphoma. Even if he does return, him and fellow starter Husain Abdullah are only under contract for one more season. Alabama's Landon Collins is sliding on draft boards as defensive linemen move up, but he was an absolute stud at Alabama and would be the perfect fit in Kansas City.
No Kansas City receiver caught a touchdown pass last season, and the Chiefs really need to upgrade the position with a gamebreaking wideout. Arizona State’s Jaelen Strong and Dorian Green-Beckham are the two best options for them in the first round.
Kansas City's offensive line was among the league leaders in sacks allowed - a list no one wants to be at the top of. Brandon Scherff from Iowa and Cedric Ogbuehi from Texas A&M are the potential first-round draft picks.
