With no Round 1 picks, Chiefs poised for crucial Day 2
KANSAS CITY (AP) — After going without a selection in the first round, the Kansas City Chiefs will have a second-round pick and two third-round choices when the NFL draft resumes Friday night.
Unless new general manager Brett Veach decides to trade some of them away.
Veach floated the possibility of trading into the first round Thursday night, but he ultimately stood pat. That means the Chiefs' first selection in this year's draft is expected to come at No. 54 overall, with a pair of third-round selections eight picks apart.
The Chiefs are expected to address their porous defense. They have a glaring need for a cornerback, pass rusher and defensive lineman, though tight end and offensive line are also possibilities.
