NFL draft results: Chiefs pick WR Tyreek Hill out of West Alabama

With the 165th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select WR West Alabama WR Tyreek Hill. He's listed as a WR but could be a RB. Sounds like an Andy Reid type of pick.

He left Oklahoma State under less than ideal conditions after that with a domestic violence incident. I'm sure Hill and / or the Chiefs will address that. But yeah, that's ugly.

Hill said that he visited Kansas City before the draft. Our OSU blog, Cowboys Ride For Free, was surprised that Hill was drafted based on his past. However, he says he's the most electrifying player he's seen since Dez Bryant.

I'm not sure what this means for De'Anthony Thomas as this seems to be a similar typer of player.
