KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Chiefs turned their attention to offense on the final day of the draft, choosing running back De'Anthony Thomas in the fourth round and quarterback Aaron Murray in the fifth round Saturday.

With two picks in the sixth round, the Chiefs added a pair of offensive linemen in Zach Fulton out of Tennessee and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif out of McGill, a school in Canada. Both of them will be able to provide depth for a unit depleted by free agency.

The Chiefs bolstered their defense the first two days of the draft, grabbing defensive end Dee Ford in Thursday night's first round and defensive back Phillip Gaines in the third round Friday.

Kansas City did not have a seventh-round selection.
