2012 NFL Draft Grades: Kansas City Chiefs Build Depth, Receive 'B' Grade

The Kansas City Chiefs added depth to their roster and received a "B" grade from SB Nation's Joel Thorman for their efforts.

This draft was about depth for the Chiefs so, like the Broncos, they don't necessarily have a lot of immediate impact players. Dontari Poe is a question mark, but should start quickly. After that, though, the Chiefs draft picks were mostly about depth. Jeff Allen takes over when Ryan Lilja leaves. Donald Stephenson is a swing tackle. Devon Wylie turns into the slot receiver the Chiefs tried to turn Dexter McCluster into in his first season (before he became a running back again).

Good depth was added this year.

In respect to the rest of the AFC West, the Chiefs B grade was second best trailing only the B+ handed out to the San Diego Chargers. The Denver Broncos were given a C+ and the Raiders an F by Thorman.
