We continue on with our six questions series for the Kansas City Chiefs. The questions we're asking about the draft picks are the same ones the Chiefs ask themselves about their draft picks. The set of questions comes from Michael Holley's "War Room".

Previous editions of our six questions series include: DT Dontari Poe, OL Jeff Allen and OT Donald Stephenson.

Up today is fourth round pick WR Devon Wylie, out of Fresno State.

What will this player's role be as a Chief?

He will be a slot receiver for the Chiefs. He could also aid in the return game. The Chiefs are without a definitive slot receiver for the 2012 season so Wylie has a good shot at finding a role.

Will the role change from year one to year two?

A little bit. Without seeing him in training camp yet, I would doubt he would be a day one starter. I think at some point down the line the Chiefs would like him to be the main man in the slot so his only change from year one to year two would be natural development.

How many downs can he be expected to play?

All of them. Or as much as the Chiefs need him to with whatever formation they line up in. I don't see any limitations on how many downs he plays.

Which current player on the roster will he beat out?

The only "sure things" at receiver for the Chiefs, as far as I see it, are Dwayne Bowe, Jonathan Baldwin and Steve Breaston. Terrance Copper is pretty close to a sure thing. Of the remaining receivers -- Josh Bellamy, Junior Hemingway, Jeremy Horne, Brandon Kinnie, Zeke Markshausen and Jamar Newsome -- Wylie has the best shot at making the roster.

What's his value on special teams?

A lot. He was a return man at Fresno State and, depending on Javier Arenas, could do the same in Kansas City.

Does he have positional versatility?

Yes. He can play the slot and contribute on special teams. His size doesn't make him ideal for any position outside the slot, though.
