Kansas City Chiefs John Dorsey sat down with KCChiefs.com recently to talk about what the Chiefs have done in free agency and what they plan to do in the NFL Draft.
KCChiefs has a show now, called “Red & Gold.” It is basically a half-hour online show that features a few cool segments. The first is an inside look at the combine and they finish up with an interview with Chiefs great Will Shields and a look at the 101 Awards Banquet.
In the middle, there is an interview with Chiefs GM John Dorsey, conducted by KCChiefs.com staffer Rachael Santschi.
Dorsey talked about the tea’s free agency strategy, which was essentially to add as much depth to the roster as possible.
“Our job is to create depth,” said Dorsey. “Competitive depth and competitive situations. And any time you have a chance to deal in free agency and be selective and not over-spend, you’re going to try to do that. I think what we have done is we’ve gotten the payers we feel best to move this franchise forward.”
Now that KC is mostly finished in free agency (we think) Dorsey said it is time to turn to the NFL Draft.
“Now that takes us to the next phase of the plan, is that, let’s hit it in the draft. That’s what we’ve got to do,” said the Chiefs GM.
Dorsey went on to say that he has a specific grouping of players that he is looking at as the team prepares for the draft. It is a small grouping so I would assume Dorsey is just talking about prospective players to select with the team’s first pick.
“My next goals is I have a target, a pool of players, anywhere between six and ten players,” said Dorsey. “And I want to find out, to see which one of these six to ten players is the perfect fit for the Kansas City Chiefs.”
Once you hear that, it is kind of fun to go through and try to determine which players are in Dorsey’s six to ten.
Here is my guess:
1. OT, Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
2. OT, Eric Fischer, Central Michigan
3. CB, Dee Milliner, Alabama
4. DT, Sharrif Floyd, Florida
5. QB, Geno Smith, West Virginia
6. OLB, Jarvis Jones, Georgia
7. G, Chance Warmack, Alabama
8. OT, Lane Johnson, Oklahoma
9. DT, Star Lotulelei, Utah
10. WR, Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee
All right, Addicts. Those are my ten. Now let’s see yours!
