The Kansas City Chiefs drafted Travis Kelce, a tight end out of Cincinnati, with the first pick in the third round of the NFL draft Friday night. The Chiefs didn't have a second-round selection after trading it to San Francisco to acquire quarterback Alex Smith.
So after picking offensive tackle Eric Fisher first overall on Thursday night, they had to wait until the 63rd overall pick before snagging another player. Kelce should provide a target for Smith after snagging 45 passes for 722 yards and eight touchdowns for the Bearcats last season. .
Then the Chiefs drafted Arkansas running back Knile Davis with a compensatory pick in the third round grabbing a bulldozer to take some of the load off Jamaal Charles. Davis has a nice blend of size and speed, resulting in comparisons to former Razorbacks star Darren McFadden.
But the knock on Davis - and one of the big reasons he fell late into the third round - is that he's dealt with a number of injuries throughout his career.
