Last year, the Chiefs had the 28th ranked defense and 29th ranked pass defense recording just eight interceptions, which was the second-lowest total in the NFL.
Watts provides a versatile on-ball defender who pinpoints plays for the Chiefs.
Brett Veach thought he was in good shape offensively after adding wide receiver Sammy Watkins in free agency, and that the Kansas City Chiefs’ most pressing needs were entirely on defense.
So, he used the entire draft to address them.
Speaks was seen as the Rebels’ best pro prospect due to his NFL size and ferocity coming off the edge, but had fallen on numerous teams’ draft boards due to conduct concerns. He was selected surprisingly early, as the 14th pick of the 2nd round by the Kansas City Chiefs after they traded up to select him.
16. Kansas City Chiefs: Christian Miller, OLB, Alabama
With Justin Houston potentially entering his last year in Kansas City, the Chiefs might need to find a pass-rusher who can replace his value to the defense.
Where O'Daniel could immediately slide in is on special teams, where he was a standout for Clemson before blossoming as a defensive starter. At 6-foot-1, 223 pounds, he may need to bulk up before making an impact on defense, but it wouldn't be the first time he had to work his way onto the field.
If you're a Chiefs fan who will be watching the final day of the NFL Draft on Saturday, you might want to keep an eye on Chris Jones' Twitter feed.

In case you missed it at Arrowhead Pride
Speaks is a player with a good athletic profile who tested well at the NFL Combine. On the field, he flashes the traits but struggles to be consistent. His pass rushes get stalled too much for my liking, and his eye discipline needs work. Is there a lot to work with? Yes. Is he ready to contribute right away? I don’t know. There is a path for Speaks to develop into a nice interior lineman. I just didn’t like the pick that early on an overpay in draft capital.
The NFL Draft has come and gone, and now the analysts are weighing in.
