Who AA's Picking

Many of our writers weigh in on who they believe the Kansas City Chiefs will be selecting at #21, and who they believe the Chiefs should be selecting at #21.

Jeremy Hanson

Will pick: OT Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin
Should pick: NT Phil Taylor, Baylor

“We need to get younger on the o-line, and quick.  But we should pick Taylor simply because he is a true NT, talented, and NT is in high demand nowadays.”

Double D

Will pick:  NT Phil Taylor, Baylor
Should pick:  NT Phil Taylor, Baylor

I think you know my answer. I want it to be and I believe it will be Phil Taylor unless another team grabs him ahead of us. And if that does happen (after slitting my wrists) I take Jake Locker if he’s still on the board without even thinking twice about it.”

Andrew Crocker

Will pick:  OT Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin
Should pick:  OLB Aldon Smith, Missouri

“The Chiefs should continue upgrading their front seven, but they’ll go OL.  Despite what Paddy says, this team depends too much on Tamba Hali for its passrush.”

Adam Toren

Will pick:  OG/C Mike Pouncey, Florida
Should pick:  trade back

“Assuming the Chiefs don’t trade back, which I think is quite likely, Pioli sticks to his draft trends which leaves him with a choice between Derek Sherrod, Pouncey, and Justin Houston.  But trading back to a team in the top half of the 2nd round sticks me in an area that I’m excited about.”

Randy Murawski

Will pick:  NT Jerrell Powe, Mississippi
Should pick:  NT Jerrell Powe, Mississippi

“With Ron Edwards deteriorating rapidly with only seven tackles last year we need to improve the middle.  Jerrell Powe will be a perfect compliment to Dorsey and Jackson. That is who we should go with and that is who I predict we will go with.”

Merlin

Will pick: OT Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State
Should pick: OT Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State

“Sherrod fits Pioli’s criteria to a ‘T’ and can play left tackle.  He is a very great talent and a great fit at a high value position.”

Lyle Graversen

Will pick: OT Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State
Should pick: NT Phil Taylor, Baylor

“As I stated in my “Pioli Colored Glasses” post, I think the Chiefs will draft Derrek Sherrod.  I hope the Chiefs draft Phil Taylor, because that will mean that Pioli thought the injury and character concerns were overblown.”

Victor Wishna

Will pick: OT Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin
Should pick: OT Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin

“I believe Scott Pioli and the Chiefs are going to take the so-called “safe” pick and go with–if he’s still available–OT Gabe Carimi. Blame Herm, praise Jamaal, etc., but to my mind the Chiefs’ offensive production has always soared and sunk with the age and ability with the O-line.”
