Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have the 23rd overall pick of the draft. Although a much improved team compared to the one drafting a year ago, the Chiefs still have a number of areas they need to strengthen.

Kansas City's offensive line was hit hard by free agency as they lost the likes of Branden Albert and Joe Asamoah.

It seems that Eric Fisher - last year's second overall pick - is going to be given first shot at replacing Albert at left tackle. This leaves the Chiefs needing at least one and possibly two guards. However, it is hard to see the Chiefs spending a first-round draft pick on a guard because they also have need of a number one wide receiver.

It is the receiver area that they will likely look to strengthen with the first-round pick. Marquise Lee is a genuine playmaker on offense who has only been overshadowed this year because of the sheer amount of wide receiver talent.

Lee has explosive speed off the line of scrimmage that allows him to get separation from the defense and soft hands. Despite only starting eight games in an injury hit 2014, Lee still made 1,143 yards. The Chiefs won't let him get past them on the board.
