KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - The Chiefs have drafted a wide receiver to help replace the void left by Tyreek Hill.

After trading back from pick No. 50 to No. 54, Kansas City selected wideout Skyy Moore out of Western Michigan.

The Chiefs selected Bryan Cook, a safety from Cincinnati, with the No. 62 pick, their other second-round pick.

The draft of Cook means the Chiefs went defense with three of their first four picks, including two defensive backs. A new-look secondary will be on display after the departure of cornerback Charvarius Ward and Tyrann Mathieu.

The Chiefs also received a fifth-round pick in the trade with the New England Patriots.
