Kansas City Chiefs out of picks
By Bill Williamson
Unless they make some trades, the Kansas City Chiefs are done drafting this weekend.
The Chiefs entered the day with two fifth-round picks. They took Mississippi safety Kendrick Lewis at No. 136 and Troy defensive end Cameron Sheffield.
Lewis will give depth or the secondary. Sheffield is a pass rusher who can also play outside linebacker. He is a project.
The Chiefs had a decent trade. They got a potential star in Tennessee safety Eric Berry at No. 5. They got small, but explosive speedsters Dexter McCluster (running back/returner/receiver) and Javier Arenas (cornerback/returner) in the second round.
The Chiefs could still use a big receiver, a tight end and a nose tackle. But unless they strike a deal, it wouldn’t be done through the draft.
