Chiefs Links: Team-by-team draft thoughts

Kansas City Chiefs

What I liked: Drafting the premier playmaker on defense in the draft in Tennessee safety Eric Berry even though some thought that was too high to take a safety.

What I didn’t: Not getting another option at quarterback in case Matt Cassel is not the long-term franchise player they thought he would be. They could have gotten Charlie Weis disciple Jimmy Clausen in the second round and arguably should have if Clausen is as good as Weis says he is.

Moving forward: The Chiefs had a stellar draft that should really help their overall roster and depth. Javier Arenas, Dexter McCluster, Jon Asamoah, and Tony Moeaki in particular all have an excellent opportunity to help the cause as rookies.
