Round 2: Chiefs and Chargers
By Bill Williamson
The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers both addressed their greatest needs in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday.
The Chiefs took Memphis nose tackle Dontari Poe at No. 11 and San Diego grabbed South Carolina pass-rusher Melvin Ingram at No. 18.
Let’s take a look at what direction both teams could go in Friday's second round as a result of their work in the first:
Kansas City, No. 44: The Chiefs are looking for the best players available, because they don’t have many glaring needs. I think could consider a quarterback such as Michigan State’s Kirk Cousins or even Arizona State’s Brock Osweiler. We could see them take a look at Midwestern State guard Amini Silatolu, Wisconsin guard/center Peter Konz or perhaps a receiver if a top talent like Georgia Tech’s Stephen Hill, LSU’s Rueben Randle or South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery falls to them at that spot.
San Diego, No. 49: I think we can see the Chargers taking a running back such as Oregon’s LaMichael James or Miami’s Lamar Miller. Other possibilities include LSU safety Brandon Taylor and Mississippi offensive lineman Bobby Massie.
