Chiefs | Team unlikely to draft wide receiver early again

Adam Teicher, of the Kansas City Star, reports the Kansas City Chiefs still have a need at defense. With the team needing to fix many defensive needs, the Chiefs will likely pass on wide receiver early in the NFL Draft. During the past five drafts, the Chiefs have yet to select a wide receiver higher than the third round. Team president and general manager Carl Peterson addressed the situation and talked about WRs Samie Parker and Craphonso Thorpe. He said, "We haven't been able to get that player. To date, that guy hasn't stepped up. I'm cautiously optimistic and excited about Samie Parker. Hopefully, good things are going to happen there. I would say the same thing about Craphonso Thorpe. Until his injury, we had him rated a lot higher than a fourth-round pick. We're going to keep looking. We're going to keep churning the waters."
