The Kansas City Chiefs finally moved away from the offensive and defensive lines in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft and they made their first selection a fast one. Devon Wylie is a speedy slot receiver and kick returner out of Fresno State and the Chiefs made him their fourth round selection. It’s a move that most draft analysts seem to like and CBS Sports gives it a “B” grade in their instant take.
Jason Chilton writes, “Wylie is very quick with good ball skills in the slot, and also shows promise as a return guy who can be tough to bring down on punts. Kansas City has size outside with Bowe and Baldwin and adds slot-type quickness with Wylie.”
The Chiefs now have a few return candidates in Dexter McCluster, Javier Arenas and Wylie and all three should help in special teams. The Chiefs continue to add youth and depth and a team that needed some additional speed at receiver now has it.
