KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs used the final selection in the first round of the NFL draft to add another threat to their offense.

As if they didn’t have enough already.

After the phones went silent in their attempt to trade out of the first round, the Chiefs used the No. 32 pick Thursday night on LSU standout Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He was the only running back taken in the first round, and he joins an offense led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Tyreek Hill, and tight end Travis Kelce that helped to deliver the Chiefs their first Super Bowl championship in five decades.
