Today the Kansas City Chiefs drafted Travis Kelce, a tight end from the University of Cincinnati. Kelce was the first played taken in the third round, the 63rd overall.
Kelce helped the Bearcats go 10-3 last season by catching 45 passes for 722 yards and eight touchdowns.
Kelce is 6’4, 255 pounds. The Chiefs think he is a great player, not only as a receiver, but as a blocker as well. He is a great all-around tight end, he has a lot of talent and a high football IQ.
Andy Reid, the Chiefs Head Coach, actually coached Travis’ brother Jason when he was in Philadelphia. Jason is a center for the Eagles.
This offseason the Chiefs signed quarterback Alex Smith, he should be very happy right now. His team has drafted a great offensive lineman in Eric Fisher, a very good running back, Knile Davis, and a top tight end in Travis Kelce.
The Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL last season, they went 2-14, so they’re trying to turn everything around and get back to their winning ways of the past, they hope Kelce can help them reach that goal.
