Our friends over at Mocking The Draft are reviewing every team's 2012 NFL Draft class and up today is the Kansas City Chiefs, who they say had some solid value picks in the later rounds, including Devon Wylie.

The 2012 NFL Draft started off slow for Pioli and company, but the front office picked up steam, collecting some solid values in the middle and late rounds of the draft. Dontari Poe was a massive risk at No. 11 in every sense of the word. The Chiefs then addressed the offensive line in the second and third rounds, drafting guard Jeff Allen and tackle Donald Stephenson. Neither is a stellar prospect, but they definitely addressed an area of slight concern.

Devon Wylie the prize of this draft for Kansas City. He will become an outstanding slot receiver in the NFL due to his reliable hands, smooth route running and quickness in and out of his cuts. The Chiefs then filled added some depth in the next two rounds with defensive back DeQuan Menzie and running back Cyrus Gray.

Mocking The Draft holds a similar opinion on the Chiefs first three draft picks as many others do, although I think they're underselling Jeff Allen a little bit.

Interesting that they call Wylie the "prize" of the Chiefs draft. Considering the Chiefs current personnel at receiver, I've wondered how much playing time Wylie will receive. Mocking The Draft's report has me re-thinking that a little bit.
