After no first round picks, Chiefs poised to make a splash at NFL Draft on second day

Sports Illustrated executive editor Stephen Cannella previewed the draft and Kansas City’s outlook and even without a top pick said the Chiefs are still in a good spot heading into 2018

After no Florida State players were selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seminoles didn't have to wait long for some action in the third.

The Chiefs have the 24th pick in the round, along with a sixth-round pick and two choices in the seventh round.

The Chiefs did not have a first-round pick after trading it away last season to select quarterback Patrick Mahomes II.

Kansas City could still use help at cornerback, so general manager Brett Veach may not be done with that side of the ball. Speaks played across the defensive line at Ole Miss, and that versatility should come in handy as the Chiefs try to solve both of those issues.

The club engineered a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals to select Speaks with the 14th selection of the second round. After taking Breeland Speaks, it is clear the Chiefs want to get bigger up front.

Speaks tallied nine sacks and 15 tackles for loss in 37 games with 18 starts at Mississippi.
