2012 NFL Draft: Kansas City Chiefs Select Devon Wylie, WR, Fresno State

With the 107th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected WR Devon Wylie from Fresno State.

Scouts Inc. assigned Wylie a rating of 48 and ranked him as the 29th best wide receiver.

One of the fastest players in the draft, Wylie gives Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs some big time speed at wide receiver and especially in the return game. Unfortunately, he also brings with him a history of being unable to stay healthy.

Throughout his time at Fresno State, the 5’9″ receiver fought through constant injuries and was forced to redshirt in in 2010.

If he can stay on the field, they Chiefs can immediately plug Wylie into kick and punt returns while allowing Javier Arenas and Dexter McCluster to focus on defense and offense, respectively.

A nice job by GM Scott Pioli to grab a guy that potentially could be a big time play maker.
