KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs addressed just about all their needs by the end of the NFL draft.

With five picks on Saturday, the Chiefs plucked Ramik Wilson out of Georgia in the fourth round and then added fellow linebacker D.J. Alexander out of Oregon State in the fifth round.

Linebacker was one of their glaring holes after the first two days of the draft.

Kansas City also added depth with Illinois State tight end James O'Shaughnessy in the fifth, defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches from Southern Miss in the sixth, and Northern Illinois wide receiver Da'Ron Brown in the seventh round.

Earlier Saturday, the Chiefs introduced first-round pick Marcus Peters at their practice facility. The former Washington cornerback was picked No. 18 overall on Thursday night.
