LSU's Beckham is fans' pick for Chiefs

LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is the pick of the fans for the Kansas City Chiefs in ESPN's poll. Given a choice of five wide receivers available in this year's draft, 37 percent of fans voted for Beckham, who caught 59 passes last year.

To this, I say good choice. Beckham, at 5-foot-11 1/4 and 198 pounds, doesn't have the classic size teams like to see in a receiver. But he's fast and runs well after making a catch, two qualities the Chiefs desperately need in a wide receiver. He adds some value because of his ability to returns punts and kickoffs, something the Chiefs also need.

USC's Marquis Lee received 23 percent of the vote, followed by Oregon State's Brandin Cooks at 21 percent, Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin at 10 percent and Indiana's Cody Latimer at nine percent.
