Last year, Kansas City’s draft day neighbor was the Washington Redskins. Guiding a team with a bit of mystery surrounding them, but with a consensus need for an offensive tackle, former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan followed suit by selecting Oklahoma T Trent Williams with Washington’s first-round pick.
The rest is written. Eric Berry went to the Chiefs at number five, while Russell Okung fell to Seattle at number six.
Interesting article from Josh Looney at KCChiefs.com about KC’s draft day neighbor. This year the Tampa Bay Bucs will be drafting before the Chiefs in the first round. While the Chiefs won’t be able to be totally sure who the Bucs are going to take, having a good idea of their team needs could give KC more time to mull over their possible options while they are on deck and Tampa Bay is on the clock.
