Found May 04, 2012 on Chiefs Command:
After adding some depth to the line in the 2nd and 3rd rounds (boring, but definitely important) the Chiefs made some noise in the 4th and 5th rounds, receiving mixed reviews from many of the "experts". Personally, I really like both of these picks, but what do the experts say? Devon Wylie, WR Fresno State Walter Cherepinsky, WalterFootball.com - Grade C- Devon Wylie is a slight reach here; he was more of a Round 5-6 prospect. The Chiefs were looking for a slot receiver because Steve Breaston probably won't be around following the 2012 season. Jason Chilton, CBSsports.com (BarkingCarnival.com) - Grade B Wylie is very quick with good ball skills in the slot, and also shows promise as a return guy who can be tough to bring down on punts. Kansas City has size outside with Bowe and Baldwin and adds slot-type quickness with Wylie. Jeremy Heneghan, 85percentsports.com - Grade B+ Has drawn comparisons to Wes Welker from a lot of people.

General manager Scott Pioli stood pat last season, and the result was a team that looked just about the same as it did the previous year. And that proved disastrous when a rash of injuries early in the season exposed a lack of...

AFC West draft grades

Kansas City Chiefs: B The only part of the Chiefs' draft I truly didn't like was their selection of Dontari Poe at 11th overall. Poe was a bit of a wildcard going into the draft, with his draft stock fluctuating wildly between the end of the first round and the top 10. The Chiefs brought in two additional offensive linemen with their 2nd and 3rd round selections, beefing up...

Todd Haley Likes Using Running Backs In The Passing Game

Since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Florida running back Chris Rainey in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL draft, one really can't help but to think that new offensive coordinator Todd Haley plans to use him the same way that he used Dexter McCluster when he was the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.
