The Kansas City Chiefs are desperate to add some playmaking ability to their offense. We're surprised they waited until the fourth round, but they sure found a fun value pick.
Running back De'Anthony Thomas was taken by the Chiefs on Saturday with the 124th overall selection in the NFL draft. At 5-foot-9 and 174 pounds, he's the logical replacement for Dexter McCluster. Thomas can play running back, wide receiver and return kicks or punts. Some folks even believe he could play cornerback if asked.
Thomas will require Chiefs coach Andy Reid to find creative ways to get him in space. There are some concerns that Thomas might be just a track star playing football, and there are others who believe the Snoop Dogg-named "Black Mamba" could be a terrific game-changer for a fourth-round pick.
Now, the Chiefs just need to find a few players who can line up at wide receiver every snap.
