Receiver Jeris McIntyre Nabbed in Round 6

You can never have enough wide receivers on your roster. After drafting Samie Parker out of Oregon earlier on Sunday, the Chiefs selected Auburn's Jeris McIntyre in the sixth round.

The selection of Jeris McIntyre in the sixth round continues the Chiefs desire to bolster their wide receiving corps. McIntyre was the leading Auburn receiver in 2003. He led the Tigers with 41 receptions this past season that was a career high for McIntyre. In his first year as a starter in 2003, he scored three touchdowns while gaining d 621 receiving yards.

Like the Chiefs second round pick tight end Kris Wilson, McIntyre makes plays down the field. Last year he averaged 15.1 yards per reception. He also has something else the Chiefs are looking for in this years draft picks. He plays special teams.

McIntyre's best game last season was against Vanderbilt. In that game he score two touchdowns and that game made him an attractive late round pi ck for the Chiefs. He like Parker is small at 5' 11" and his chances of making the roster are going to be difficult but he could earn some stripes by playing well on special teams.
