KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs general manager John Dorsey would love to hear his phone ringing on draft night.

One year after picking first overall, Kansas City will be waiting until No. 23 to make its first selection this year. It’s also the only selection the franchise has in the first 86 picks, which is why Dorsey made it clear he’s entertaining offers to move down and acquire more.

If that doesn’t happen, expect Kansas City to address one of its most glaring holes, wide receiver. The Chiefs have struggled to find a playmaker to stretch the field, and with that position arguably the deepest in the draft, it’s a good bet that’s where they’ll go.

Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks and LSU’s Odell Beckham Jr. are two possibilities.
