The Kansas City Chiefs helped address one of their biggest weaknesses with their first of two sixth round picks by selecting G Zach Fulton from Tennessee.
With guards Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz leaving in free agency, the Chiefs were left with little depth on the interior of the offensive line. Fulton is a player that brings the experience of 40 starts in the SEC and at the very least will be able to backup both guard spots and push for a starting gig next to Rodney Hudson.
Fulton is the third straight offensive player drafted by GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid following RB De’Anthony Thomas and QB Aaron Murray. While he isn’t likely to see the field as much as Thomas, Fulton will contribute more than Murray, even if it’s only on special teams.
The Chiefs are schedule to have just one more pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, with the 200th overall selection later in the sixth round.
