NFL Network's Mike Silver was inside the St. Louis Rams draft room on Saturday and produced this piece which is a very cool read.

In one part of his piece, Silver talks about the Rams going on the clock with their second round pick, 41st overall, on Friday night. And then he writes the Rams had trade offers, including one from the Chiefs:

There was plenty of drama in the war room Friday night, as the Rams -- who had a cluster of offensive linemen stacked in the second-round range and were thus open to trading down -- fielded a fast and furious barrage of trade offers for their second-round pick (41st overall).

...

The Chiefs, Eagles, Texans, Steelers and Panthers all offered trade-down prospects, and the Cowboys called to gauge the market before bowing out. With four-and-a-half minutes on the clock, Fisher chose the Panthers' deal. The Rams got Carolina's second-round pick (57th overall), along with selections in the third and sixth round, and hoped one of the linemen they liked would last another 16 spots.

I have no idea what the Chiefs offered. Obviously the Rams didn't think it was as good as the ones the Panthers offered.

The Chiefs ended up selecting Mizzou OL Mitch Morse with the 49th overall pick. The picks between No. 41 (Rams pick traded to the Panthers) and the No. 49 pick (where the Chiefs picked):

41. WR Devin Funchess (Panthers)

42. CB Jalen Collins (Falcons)

43. ILB Benardrick McKinney (Texans)

44. OLB Hau'oli Kikaha (Saints)

45. ILB Eric Kendricks (Vikings)

46. S Jaquiski Tartt (49ers)

47. CB Eric Rowe (Egales)

48. ILB Denzel Perryman (Chargers)

Soooo I see plenty of players on here I would've considered for KC. Funchess, Collins McKinney, Kendricks, Rowe and Perryman are all players I could have seen the Chiefs selecting.
