Andy Reid loves bolstering the trenches in the early stages of the NFL Draft, and he might look at grabbing a defensive lineman in the first round next April. Mike DeVito is coming off a torn Achilles, so he may never be the same again, while the other defensive ends don't really bring much to the table.

Spencer Drango, OT, Baylor
From what I'm hearing, the Chiefs could move on from Eric Fisher after this season if he doesn't improve his game. He has been very pedestrian thus far in the NFL.
The Chiefs could have drafted a receiver early in the 2015 NFL Draft, but waited until the third round. Here's a receiver to team with Jeremy Maclin and Chris Conley.
Conklin is a well-balanced blocker who is effective at protecting the passer and opening holes in the ground game. He turned in an impressive 2014 season as the blind-side protector for Connor Cook. The 6-foot-6, 303-pound Conklin could use a little more power for the NFL, but the redshirt sophomore should add that in an NFL strength and conditioning program.
Pick change; previously Mike Williams, WR

Sheldon Day, DE/DT, Notre Dame
The Chiefs add a five-technique to team with Alvin Bailey and Dontari Poe. Mike DeVito isn't a long-term starter.
The 6-foot-2, 285-pound Day was a disruptive presence for Notre Dame in 2014. He totaled 40 tackles with 7.5 for a loss, one sack, two forced fumbles and two passes batted. Day played better than the numbers indicate. He has some natural strength and athleticism.
