I'm sure there is. A Lindleyesque level safety.
Thomas is an All-American. McDonald and Rambo are very solid. It gets a little iffy after that. If either of those guys are there in the third, you definitely take them over a backup at QB. That's what free agency is for - getting a vet who knows the league and can fill in and do an okay job when required.
Wasting a third round pick on a backup is wasting a pick when you can get a starter at a position of need.
The Chiefs need starters at the following out of this draft:
3. Free Safety
4. Middle Linebacker
Everything else is filler/special teams/backup.
If they get the compensation for Carr and it's a third rounder as expected, they can get all of this by round three and all of them can be high level guys. (See above.)
