Team Needs

1. Wide Receiver

It's imperative that Kansas City get an upgrade here via the draft to compliment Dwayne Bowe and the wide receiver corps. The Chiefs are in a great position to land a gem in round one. It may not be Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans but they would get a good one at No. 23 overall.

Should The Clipper Just Quit? Lessons From 1965's Football Strike Against Jim Crow from The Daily Beast

"One of the things we [the AFL] needed was the unity of the white and black players for our new league," said Abner Haynes, a former Kansas City Chiefs runningback. Haynes had been a civil rights pioneer as one of the first two African-Americans to play college football in Texas in 1956.

2014 ESPN Boston Mock Draft: Round 1 from ESPN

23. Kansas City Chiefs (PatsFanTRichter) -- Odell Beckham Jr. (WR) LSU -- The Chiefs are disappointed to lose out on Su'a-Filo, but wide receiver is just as big a hole for a Kansas City team that likely fancies itself a Super Bowl contender, and they're happy with Beckham Jr. as a consolation prize. Dexter McCluster is gone and Donnie Avery isn't a suitable No. 2 receiver, and Andy Reid has shown the ability to get high end production out of fast but diminutive receivers in the past. Beckham Jr. also has shown ability as a punt returner, which would help offset the loss of McCluster on special teams.

He's anchored the Chiefs defense for nearly a decade, totaling 718 tackles, 22.5 sacks and 11 interceptions.
