Total breakdown: Chiefs draft WR Chris Conley in third round

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A few quick thoughts on the Kansas City Chiefs' third-round draft pick.

The pick: Chris Conley, wide receiver, Georgia

My take: The Chiefs needed a deep threat and got one with Conley, who ran a 4.35 40 at the NFL combine. Conley wasn’t a prolific receiver at Georgia, catching 117 passes in four seasons. But his average yards per catch of 18.2 last year and 16.6 for his career are impressive.

How soon will he play? The Chiefs eventually would like to pair Conley in the starting lineup with Jeremy Maclin at wide receiver. It will be interesting to see how quickly that would happen. The Chiefs have no other obvious candidates for that spot on their roster. Albert Wilson, an undrafted rookie last year, came on at the end of the season and could wind up winning the job.

Chiefs wanted Conley: They traded up to get him. They moved up four spots in the third round, to No. 76 from No. 80, to make this pick. The Chiefs gave the Minnesota Vikings the No. 80 pick plus a sixth-round pick, No. 193 overall.
