2012 NFL Draft: Devon Wylie Positioned To Put Up Big Numbers For Chiefs Between Dwayne Bowe, Jon Baldwin

As analysts reflect back over the 2012 NFL Draft weekend and take in the entire scene, various prospects are going to stand out for the situations they are in. It seems that the Kansas City Chiefs’ selection of Devon Wylie in the fourth round from Fresno State could prove major dividends in the passing game. Scouts, Inc. Steve Muench says that the Chiefs have the perfect bookends in place for Wylie to put up some big numbers.

"I think Wylie can make an impact right away," writes Muench. "To put him between their two big receivers (Dwayne Bowe and Jon Baldwin) and he can be very dangerous. He’s explosive and he knows how to get open. I think he can catch 40 passes and average 15-20 yards per catch."

The Chiefs still have to sign Dwayne Bowe this offseason and that will be a piece of interesting drama likely to last through the first half of summer. However, once the season begins, if they can get Jon Baldwin ready for a full season and have Bowe opposite him, along with the tight end corps of Kevin Boss and Tony Moeaki, the Chiefs passing game could be something special.
