The Chiefs surprised many people last year by winning 11 games.  Most of their roster is still intact, the only loss being RB Dexter McCluster, and they are in position to take the best player available come draft day.  Many writers and draft gurus think the Chiefs will add a WR in the first round after they failed to add Emmanuel Sanders or DeSean Jackson during free agency.  But what happens if there’s a run on WRs in the first round.  Will Kansas City reach for another WR or will they take the best player available?

Cincinnati has one of the deepest rosters in the NFL, despite losing Michael Johnson, Anthony Collins, and Andrew Hawkins this offseason.  There isn’t a glaring need on either side of the ball, and the consensus among mock drafters is that Cincy will add either a cornerback or defensive end in the first round.  But let last year serve as a lesson that the Bengals will stick to their board.  Every mock draft from 2013 had the Bengals taking either a CB or S and the Bengals ended up taking TE Tyler Eifert, a player they thought would already be gone by their pick.  Cincy’s pick will be difficult to predict this year, but we’ll give it a shot anyway.
