Marquess Wilson And The NFL: Kansas City Chiefs

Marquess Wilson Profile

Stacked Against The Pick: 

I don’t think its any secret that Andy Reid likes to throw the ball, and Alex Smith could use some weapons. The Chiefs did themselves a favor in re-signing Dwayne Bowe, and they have a good slot receiver in Dexter McCluster; but they are still lacking talent in their wide outs.

Jonathan Baldwin hasn’t performed or lived up to the first round pick he was, and his spot on the depth chart is up for grabs. The Chiefs could really use a burner though, someone who could take the top off the defense and open up the passing game for Smith. Wilson has been known to go deep throughout his college career, but he is certainly not a burner.

The Perfect Storm: 

If the Chiefs can grab their burner in the early rounds, they may be looking to add a second receiver in the later rounds. If Wilson is available late in the draft, a team like the Chiefs might take a look.

Likelihood He Gets Drafted By The Chiefs: 

C (I think the Chiefs give Baldwin another chance at blossoming into the receiver they thought he would be. They have a lot of other needs, taking two receivers could be too much for them. Although, it is Andy Reid at the helm, so maybe they look at adding one or two more. I think its a toss up at this point.)
