The Draft Runs Under the Arch


***Update*** Looks like Scouts Inc. (which, might I add, is grammatically incorrect; it should be Scouts, Inc. with the comma. Sorry, I’m an English major.) agrees with McShay’s mock draft, agreeing with scenario #2 (Rams taking Chris Long. Furthermore, they trade our #5 pick (and a 5th rounder) to New Orleans for their first round picks this year and next year. Wowee-wow-wow! I’ll take it!

Had you been watching Mike and Mike this morning, you would have seen Todd McShay‘s most recent mock draft (which, apparently, was scrawled out on a piece of paper… just the regular amount of work he puts into them). However, this mock draft factored in Jake Long heading to Miami (officially) and all the latest information. Putting what he said into a graphic, this is basically all you missed:

I’m not gonna lie to you–this feels like the right lineup. Depending on what the Rams do, we could either be blessed with Chris Long or Matt Ryan falling into our laps. If the latter happens, I don’t see KC picking up Ryan (sorry, Adam); the trade value for him would be so astronomically high that Baltimore (or one of the other quarterback-hungry teams) would have to be tempted to make the jump. If that happens, we might see the Chiefs pick up a 14th or 15th pick for this draft. How eeeeenteresting…
