Chiefs Links: AFC draft: Rating top picks, intriguing players to follow

Kansas City Chiefs

First pick: Eric Berry

He might have been the best player I saw in this year’s draft. He had very good instincts against the run and pass. Tennessee moved him all around the secondary from safety to blitzing safety to corner covering the slot. I also thought he was a good tackler. He was a better prospect than Sean Taylor.

The pick I will watch the most

Dexter McCluster, and how they use him. The Chiefs will probably use him out of the backfield and in the slot. When I watched him I kept trying to compare him to Wes Welker. So when McCluster is in the slot, will he be as good as Welker? That is my question. He doesn’t weigh as much as Welker but he certainly is as quick and he is faster.

I don’t know about you but hearing a former GM say McCluster and Welker in the same sentence gets me very excited.
