The Chiefs signed running back Knile Davis, who selected in the third round of the NFL Draft. The Chiefs have now signed three of their eight draft picks. They previously signed sixth-round center Eric Kush and seventh-round linebacker Mike Catapano. In 2010 at Arkansas, Davis rushed for 1,322 yards and 13 touchdowns, but missed all of 2011 because of a broken ankle. He saw limited action in 2012 dealing with a hamstring injury and he dealt with fumble issues.
The team also added former Nevada head coach Chris Ault as an offensive specialist. Ault is known as the guru of the pistol offense, which features option plays. Colin Kaepernick was among the quarterbacks who played for Ault at Nevada. Kaepernick replaced Alex Smith as the San Francisco 49ers head coach.
