I think the Chiefs did OK for themselves here. Nothing really jumps out to me as being an exceptional pick, but they do tend to get some production out of their day three defensive back picks, so watch out for Nic Jones. Wayna Morris is someone who has a chance to solidify their right tackle spot and Rashee Rice does have some enticing qualities.
They added two pass rushers as well to help their average defense perhaps take the next step. The Chiefs parted ways with Frank Clark this offseason so they did do themselves a favor by targeting some pass rush help.
