2014 NFL mock draft roundup: Marqise Lee sees action

The Chiefs could use another talented receiver, and a Trojan is getting some play at the No. 23 spot.

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

We're back with our second week of rounding up the Kansas City Chiefs mock draft picks, and this week there is a definite trend.

Out of the folks who did a mock this week, there was one position dominating the conversation.

Matthew Fairburn of SB Nation: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

This is where the run on wide receivers could begin. The Chiefs need to add talent to the depth chart behind Dwayne Bowe. Odell Beckham Jr. is the next wideout on our board due to his speed and body control. Andy Reid would like to add a player like Beckham who can challenge defenses vertically.

Behind The Steel Curtain: Marqise Lee, WR, USC

Andy Reid likes drafting linemen, wide receivers, and cornerbacks early. He took took Eric Fisher number one overall last year but he has struggled and Brandon Albert will be a free agent so they could be looking to take another OT in the first round. They could take a TE or a WR given Dwayne Bowe's struggles. And defensively they may need to replace free agent to be Tyson Jackson.

Eddie Brown of the San Diego Times-Union: Marqise Lee, WR, USC

Andy Reid would love to add a field-stretcher in the passing game. Considering how Lee played in USC's bowl game, his draft stock is on the upward tick again. He can run any route and has good hands. Alex Smith would do a backflip for this pick. Top needs: WR, DL, ILB.

Walter Football: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

The Chiefs need another outside receiver to start across from Dwayne Bowe. I recently mocked Jace Amaro here, but I've been told that Kelvin Benjamin is way more likely to be chosen by Kansas City. Either player makes a ton of sense.

Rob Rang of CBS Sports: Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama

Incumbent starter Kendrick Lewis is a pending free agent and while the Chiefs are high on second-year pro Sanders Commings, Clinton-Dix could force the team to re-think their depth chart. A steady open-field tackler with good fluidity and speed in coverage, Clinton-Dix could help the Chiefs' secondary grow less reliant on their fierce pass rush to make big plays on defense.

Dane Brugler of CBS Sports: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

Besides Dwayne Bowe, the Chiefs are lacking for impact targets in the passing game downfield. Beckham is a dynamic athlete who will find ways to get open and create after the catch, giving Kansas City a pair of former LSU tigers for Alex Smith to throw to.
