NFL Draft 2014: Pick your WR for the Kansas City Chiefs

Among these options at receiver in the 2014 NFL Draft, who should the Kansas City Chiefs take?

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

We've been doing some polls lately on which players or positions you would like to see the Kansas City Chiefs address with the 23rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Some of the results -- such as this one on Johnny Manziel and this one on Teddy Bridgewater -- surprised me a little bit. Others -- such as this one saying receiver and safety are the top needs -- aren't so surprising.

The top position on most Chiefs fans draft boards is receiver. The top two receivers -- Clemson's Sammy Watkins and Texas A&M's Mike Evans -- are likely to be gone by the Chiefs pick.

Among the other options at receiver, there are three players who are mocked to Kansas City more than others -- LSU's Odell Beckham Jr., USC's Marqise Lee and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks. Some people put Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin in that group.

What I want to do today is determine which of those receivers is the favorite among Chiefs fans.

As I said on 610 Sports with Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison yesterday, my favorite among those is Cooks. He is fast as hell and had insane production in the Pac-12. After that, I would rank them Beckham, Lee and then Benjamin (who reminds me of Dwayne Bowe, and the Chiefs have a Dwayne Bowe). ESPN's Adam Teicher is a Beckham fan while Mel Kiper has mocked Lee to the Chiefs twice. Todd McShay recently mocked Indiana's Cody Latimer to the Chiefs, so he could be your other option.

We put this to a poll. Which receiver are you taking?
