The first round of the 2016 NFL Draft is over as the Kansas City Chiefs traded out of the first round. Let's take a look as the best remaining players for the Chiefs.  Find Gil Brandt's list of all the best available here.

Find all the Chiefs draft picks here. They have two day two picks - two in the second round.

UCLA LB Myles Jack

I can't believe he wasn't selected. Wow! He was thought to be a top 10 pick but now because of questions about his knee and whether he'll need microfracture surgery down the line it caused him to drop. This just seems like a great value at this point. The Chiefs will need to think about this one overnight.

Clemson CB Mackensie Alexander

Pro Football Focus loves this guy and so do Arrowhead Pride writers. They think he should've been the Chiefs pick at 28. I can't argue all that much. Alexander had solid ratings coming from Clemson and seems like the next best corner available. Plus this is a need for the Chiefs. Hmm...

Alabama DT A'Shawn Robinson

Big Alabama defensive lineman who we thought would be a first rounder. Gotta consider it for the value. Do Alabama d-linemen do well in the NFL? I feel like it's been a while. This would be a pick to prepare for the future of the d-line, including Dontari Poe entering a contract year.

Clemson DE Kevin Dodd

He was mocked to he Chiefs by the KC Star's Terez Paylor. And Terez does his homework. The Chiefs could also use another front seven player so if they like him I'm OK with this.I don't know if they like him though.

Indiana OT Jason Spriggs

He fits the Chiefs athletic profile for a tackle. I'm not saying the Chiefs should get rid of Eric Fisher because he sucks. I'm saying the Chiefs could draft a tackle, pay him $2 million a year instead of the $12 million option Fisher has coming his way.

Alabama LB Reggie Ragland

He's a limited player int hat he's not one of these athletic DJ-type linebackers. But the guy is a good football player. The Chiefs have inside linebackers that we like so I would lean away from this pick.

Oklahoma State DE Emmanuel Ogbah

Still on the board? Dang. Pass rushers go quick and he's not off the board. That makes me wonder why not. The Chiefs could consider a pass rusher because it's a premium position but also because of the uncertainty surrounding Justin Houston's injury.

Oklahoma WR Sterling Shepard

Stagdsp from AP loves him and wants the Chiefs to draft him. 37 or 59 could get it done. He's a slot receiver.

Ohio State WR Braxton Miller

Hey, we didn't forget about you! I wonder if he goes in the second or the third. If not Shepard, Miller could be a consideration too.
