2013 NFL Draft Day Three: Live Blog, Open Thread

The Kansas City Chiefs are just about to embark on day three of the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Chiefs have three new players after the first three rounds, all on the offensive side of the ball. KC has added Eric Fisher, Travis Kelce and Knile Davis.

The Chiefs pick second in the fourth round today. It will be interesting to see if GM John Dorsey continues to add pieces to the offense or turns his attention to the defensive side of the ball.

The Chiefs have a pick in every round today, including two sixth rounders. The second sixth rounder is a compensatory pick.

Here is where KC will be picking today: 99, 134, 170, 204, and 207.

I will be live blogging below. As always, please join in on the discussion in the comments. The other Addicts should be arriving shortly. As the picks roll in, be sure to check the Arrowhead Addict front page for scouting reports, polls and analysis.

What positions do you want to see the Chiefs target today?

    QB?

    • Stacy D. Smith

      Tyler Wilson please.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    OK, welcome to the hard core day of the draft. Only the hardest of hard core folks will be here today.

    • Ehud

      Only the hardcore will be here and only the hardcore will be able to hear the names and not go, “Who?”

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      What jerk down voted this post? Haters will hate anything I guess.

      • KCMikeG

        Haters gotta hate!

    • Ehud

      It’s going pretty fast this year.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    I knew that was a trade. You could tell by the phone call.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    anyone interested in trading down?

  • KCMikeG

    So the Jags were worried we might take their pick??

  • Ehud

    Saw that coming.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    glad barkley went. I would not touch him

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    but barkley doesn’t fit chip kelley’s offense… interesting

  • KCMikeG

    Do you really think we would have taken him or was it more about getting ahead of the faiders?

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Interdasting! Not sure he’s a great fit in Philly, but hey…

    • KCMikeG

      Vick, Dixon, Foles & Barkley. Seems like over kill to me. One of them will be a FA. Do you think Dixon has failed to live up to Kelly’s memories of him? Or will Foles be a FA? I could see Reid grabbing him since he drafted him.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    We don’t need to take a QB this year. I still like Tyler Wilson though in round 5

    • Ehud

      I like Dysert later more than Wilson. Wilson’s concussions scare me.

    • Stacy D. Smith

      Yes, please.

    • KCMikeG

      Matt Scott would be a good value but we really don’t need a QB.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Nico Johnson. there’s your LB

  • sidibeke

    Nico Johnson.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Nico Johnson! Niiiiiiiiiiiice… The Chiefs should give up that extra 6th to move back into the fourth and take one of the other QB’s. Supposedly the Chiefs were going to take Barkley with that pick if the Eagles hadn’t leapfrogged them.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      If the Chiefs were really planning to take Barkley then they are idiots for not thinking that someone would leap over them. They could have taken Barkley last night and Davis likely would have still been there

      • Stacy D. Smith

        Mayock just cleared it up after talking to Reid. Said the Chiefs wanted Johnson all along. They were never going to take Barkley.

        • chiefdeorty

          We don’t need QB but if they should think they want one than I say Renfree from Duke maybe in the 6th.

    • troy utt

      Had been hearing Barkley all morning… guess I can’t really say I was surprised that Chip traded up to get his QB, when all he has is Vick & Foles! Not to mention, Chip is getting pretty good at this “leapfrogging”, just ask the NCAA??? lol

      • KCMikeG

        Don’t forget Dennis Dixon.

  • KCMikeG

    That fills ILB but I really wanted A.J. Klein!

  • ladner morse

    Nico Johnson is not good. He doesn’t read plays well. He doesn’t get his pads low. He doesn’t have good lateral movement.

    He has long been on my list as : DO NOT DRAFT.

    Johnson was simply fortunate to play on a very good team with excellent players all around him.

    Bad choice by the Chiefs.

  • dominicscarlatti

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see an OL taken with the opening pick in the fifth round.

    • KCMikeG

      Quessenberry please!

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Stupid Eagles. I wonder if the Chiefs would have taken Barkley.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      They only gave up a 7th, no big deal at all

    • Stacy D. Smith

      I think they might’ve. I wonder if they’ll fork over an R7 to move back into the Fourth for one of the remaining QB’s?

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Here is my comment on Johnson for DraftTek: With the death of Jovan Belcher, the Chiefs were looking for a two down, thumper-type Inside Linebacker. Johnson is limited in pass coverage, but is a physical linebacker who tackles well and takes on blockers. It’s a limited role, but good value in Round 4. Grade B

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    Because you live hardcore….

  • ladner morse

    Here’s what I wrote about Nico Johnson back in January:

    “Johnson goes 6-1, 245 and for some reason keeps his pads too upright and allows blockers to get their pads lower than his, into his chest and chop block his legs any time they choose. He’s not much of a “bender.” However, Andy Reid is a good teacher and Nico Johnson has all the physical tools so, in the meantime, he’d make a great special teams player.”

    His biggest season for tackles was this past senior season with 55. If anyone thinks he’s going to be able to be a big run-stopper on 1st and 2nd down, think again.

    With all the other excellent choices available…. I think selecting Nico Johnson at this point is a mistake.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Who would you have taken instead?

      • ladner morse

        Khaseem Greene, Jordan Poyer, Jesse Williams (that’s especially hard for me to swallow… that anyone wants to tell me Jesse Williams is not better than Nico Johnson), Barrett Jones (same goes for him), Shamarko Thomas, Brain Schwenke, or Oday Oboushi.

        The list is long. There are many prospects better than Nico friggin Johnson.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I would have taken Phillip Thomas instead, but I understand the choice.

    • Ehud

      Yeah, Johnson meets the need but I question the value here. I think they could have waited a round.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        he is in the mix to start though. Not bad for a 4th round pick.

        • Ehud

          Agreed but that speaks more to the lack of talent the Chiefs have at the position than the competition/talent.

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            That is a very fair point

  • Ehud

    Dangit, I wanted Schwenke.

    • Ehud

      Wow, Titans interior O-line has the potential to be awesome.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    There goes Schwenke

    • Ehud

      And he gets to start in between Warmack & Levitre.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Johnson & Johnson in the middle. They’ll get you cleaned up!

    • ladner morse

      One will get cut before the other retires.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        You really don’t like Nico Johnson, huh?

        • ladner morse

          I’m watching more tape on him again right now. Everything I thought before is being confirmed. Opposing coaches must have prepped their players to cut Nico… because half the plays show OL pushing him 3-4 yards back and out of the play. Also, he over pursues and allows himself to get tied up with a blocker and the ball carrier runs right by him.

          Yes, I don’t like him. And now… I have to say I’m shocked anyone could have evaluated him this high and then actually selected him. I’m in shock.

          • Danny W

            I agree I honestly think this and the running back taken previously was a big reach.

          • ladner morse

            Right Danny.

            I see both those picks associated with huge… IFs.

            My question is… if you have stated publicly that you only want to make moves that WILL make the teams better…. why in the world would you take ANY iffy players???

          • Danny W

            It’s almost like they’ve fallen asleep at the wheel here. I thought Nico Johnson would go in the 7th round if not udfa. Nile Davis by most expert ratings had him around the 15th to the 20th best running back in college. Why not shoot for a potential star than someone who looks like a special teamer in the 3rd round!

          • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

            No way is a RB that ran that fast of a 40 going to be undrafted. He could be a big home run hitter in Reid’s offense. Don’t know if they needed to take him so high but definitely draftable.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

            Totally agree. He could be a huge boost to this offense. We all know Charles gets tired after those huge runs. This way we will not lose any firepower by subbing him out for a couple plays. Great pick.

          • KCMikeG

            What happened to BPA???

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Bakhtiari….. damn I liked him

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Crap, Wilson and Jones both gone

    • Ehud

      Yeah, pickings are slim at Interior O-line now.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        that Quesenberry kid is interesting. after that I have to look back at my research

        • Ehud

          That is exactly who I was thinking of as well.

        • KCMikeG

          Love Quessenberry! After him – Gilkey, Jones & Bailey. Mills & Marquardt

  • Ehud

    There were some rumblings that Chiefs had their eye on Sean Porter, who just went to the Bengals.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Sigh, there goes Phillip Thomas

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    So who are you guys thinking for the next pick? Hit me with a top 5.

    • KCMikeG

      CB Poyer, WR Williams, S Wolff or Rambo, DT/DE Hughes, OL Quessenberry! After him – Gilkey, Jones & Bailey. Mills & Marquardt

      • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

        I do like Rambo a lot. Character issues concern me.

        • KCMikeG

          I like Wolff better w/o the character issues.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

            Haven’t watched much on Wolff yet.

  • ladner morse

    By choosing IFFY players… the Chiefs are once again… allowing other teams to pass them and get better while they tread water.

    Knile Davis and Nico Johnson??? My girlfriend who knows very little about football could have rolled the dice and done better.

    You don’t plug your whole at ILB with a player who doesn’t actually have the skills to play that position. And.. why would you invest in a RB who has injury issues… a RB who once was good but, obviously hasn’t yet returned to form.

    I hope they can explain in length what their thinking is…. because I don’t see it.

    • Ehud

      Yeah, it sure looks like the other AFC West teams are having better drafts than we are.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

        I highly disagree. As do Mel Kiper and Todd McShay.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

      If you are classifying Knile Davis with having injury issues then you might as well put everyone in the NFL in that same category. Everyone gets injured. Jamaal Charles bounced back from an ACL. KD only had ankle issues. Actually he does look good when looking at 2012 highlights. Straight line speed, north and south runner. He is 230 and runs a 4.3, that is beastly. He moves the pile. Also I wouldn’t call “investing” in a player with a late 3rd round pick. He is a big boom or bust pick.

      Nico Johnson will start opposite of DJ and will be taken out on passing downs for Akeem Jordan. With what was left on the board I feel like this is a great pick. He is a thumper and a winner. Coached extremely well and is an intelligent person.

      I love both additions, they are both needs for the Chiefs. Back-up RB and starting MLB. Can’t wait to see these guys compete in training camp.

      2011-2012 4th Rounders: Jalil Brown, Devon Wylie
      2013 4th Rounder: Nico Johnson
      I think thats pretty damn good.

      • ladner morse

        1. Knile Davis has not “bounced back” from his “ankle” injuries like JC did his knee injury. The other RB on his team got more carries than him last year.

        2. Please find any tape showing Nico Johnson that is a thumper. I have looked at hours of tape on him and don’t have one memory of him lighting up a RB. He only had 55 total tackles in his senior year. 3.9 tackles per game… not even one per quarter.

        If you’re going to compare this years draft picks to Pioli’s haul previously… it’s dangerous territory to go. I hope you are hoping for more than that.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

          1. Knile Davis did not have a knee injury. It was an ankle. We got a steal with KD. 230 and runs a 4.3, need i say more. Arkansas was all kinds of out of wack this past year. Look at Wilson’s numbers? When they had a good coach in Bobby Petrino KD was a hoss. Andy Reid will show you what KD is all about. Just watch.

          2. Nico Johnson is a man. There are multiple highlights of him destroying RB’s in the backfield. You cannot argue that he has been coached extremely well and was a starter all 3 years for Alabama (3 rings). He will start for us. Tell me who else you would have taken instead of Nico? Please tell me?

          • ladner morse

            Almost every single player taken… for 29 picks.. would have been a better selection.

            Please find the video… and point out the minute and second… in which Nico “blew” some RB up. Show me. I don’t think you’ll can.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

            Agree to disagree. All will see. Nico is a winner and physical linebacker. Can’t wait.

          • ladner morse

            I’m actually hoping you are right… not me.

            I just don’t see it.

          • KCMikeG

            AJ Klein.

          • troy utt

            Jordan, Had to look KD up as I was not familiar with him… What is the story with the 6%+ fumble ratio? Was there an issue that ESPN was making something out of nothing?

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

            No, they are right. He does have a fumbling issue. Which is why I believe he lasted til the end of the third round. Andy Reid addressed in his press conference last night that it wasn’t a concern and he wouldn’t tolerate it. Lesean Mccoy had trouble with fumbling early in his career and fixd it. He has great potential.

          • KCMikeG

            So did Charles.

    • KCMikeG

      They obviously know things we don’t but I like Klein over Johnson at ILB. Davis over Franklin and Lattimore is questionable but if he can return to his pre-injury form he will be a huge value pick. I would love to hear them say something besides “He’s a great kid” or “He’s a good football player”. Aren’t they all drafting FB players or are some teams drafting hockey goalies??

  • Ehud

    Nice pick of Chris Harper there by the Seahawks,

  • Ehud

    It is looking like the value is going to be at OLB depth for the Chiefs pick.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I would love to get good value in the defensive backfield, interior O-line or even WR

    • Ehud

      I’m not sure “good value” still exists at IOL. A little left at DB & WR.

  • Ehud

    With the drafts 49ers and Packers are having, I’m glad Chiefs are an AFC team.

  • ladner morse

    It looks like every single pick since the Chiefs last picked… is a better pick.

    • Ehud

      Not the Panthers’ pick of Kugmila, but for the others? I agree. For espousing BPA phiosophy Johnson sure seems like a need reach.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      you are not loving this draft Ladner… any Chiefs pick you like?

  • Ehud

    Nice pick of Simon there for the Ravens

  • ladner morse

    Has Jesse Williams ticked off the football Gods… am really wondering why he hasn’t been taken yet?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

      I think the Chiefs should take a hard look.

    • Ehud

      It’s gotta be his knee didn’t clear medically.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    good let SF deal with a guy who can’t stay healthy

  • Ehud

    Chiefs on the clock.

  • ladner morse

    Chiefs are on the Clock.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    Almost Chiefs turn again! Getting prepared to have defend another pick by the Chiefs by all the Negative Nancy’s.

    • ladner morse

      Realistic vs Negative. Thanks for the name calling. Don’t really see it as being necessary.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

        Realistic requires you to acknowledge the physical play and talent of Nico Johnson. I wasn’t calling you any names, it’s more of a state of emotion. Seems like all Chiefs fans wanna do nowadays is dog on the franchise. They are trying to improve the team drastically through free agency and the draft. Maybe they do get a couple picks wrong? No one is perfect. The least we can do is cheer the picks on and get others thinking positively and excited about the upcoming season. I absolutely cannot wait to see the difference in coaches and players at training camp. It’s just an exciting time to be a KC fan. Royals and Chiefs.

        • ladner morse

          I’m a writer for AA.. I’d rather see us keep it civil. Name calling brings us all down. We can do better.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

            Does that give you some sort of entitlement or something? I don’t think you inserting “I’m a writer for AA” makes any sense, there was no reason to even say that. I feel as part of your job you should help shed the light on the KC Chiefs in a honest and positive manner. Not the attitude your bringing at me. Lighten up fella.

          • ladner morse

            It’s just what writers of our site do… we help to moderate. And I’m asking you to not get into name calling. That’s all. My comments about Nico Johnson have been an evaluation. We prefer that bloggers not get into typifying others comments. That takes us off topic. Enjoy your day.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

            “Knile Davis and Nico Johnson??? My girlfriend who knows very little about football could have rolled the dice and done better.”

            You also called them “IFFY” players.

            Please don’t talk about them like that, be civil.

            Good day.

          • ladner morse

            Thank you.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    rambo and quesenberry are still available

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    Commings!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Sanders Commings CB

    • Ehud

      He could play safety.

  • Ehud

    Sanders Commings

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    He is a press corner, any doubt we will be more aggressive on D?

    • Ehud

      No, and that gets makes me want to see our defense even more.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I agree, I always hated read and react. I want my team to dictate the action and attack on both sides of the ball.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

      He gets all those crazy INT’s in the air that are normally deflections.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    I love this Commings pick. Dude is a freaking ball hawk! Good tackler. Decent speed. Could possibly play safety too. I like it.

  • BigGil

    NFL’s analysis suggests he could make a move to safety in the pros…

  • ladner morse

    Sanders Commings vs Alabama

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    Rotoworld –

    “Commings (6-foot 1/8, 216) started 35 games at UGA, recording eight career picks. He ran 4.41 at the Combine with a 34.5-inch vertical. Commings is a classic press-man corner with a thick build, but has a tendency to shy away from contact. He’s also had some off-the-field issues, getting suspended for the first two games of 2012 after an offseason domestic violence charge. He won’t contribute on defense as a rookie”

    Hmmmm character concerns?

    • ladner morse

      Are you suggesting something “Negative” about one of the Chiefs draft picks??? Hmmm…

      • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

        It’s is a completely different story when someone gets a public domestic abuse charge against their girlfriend. Especially after the unfortunate circumstances that occurred last year with Jovan Belcher. I’m not being negative I just don’t know this man and what he has been through.

      • KCMikeG

        Get a rope!

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      I don’t believe character concerns matter as much to Reid as they did to Pioli

      • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

        Yeah it’s different though Kelce had a struggle with Marijuana. Commings had a public domestic abuse charge. Idk.

  • KCMikeG

    The “Sandman” was projected a 3rd or 4th round CB/S. I liked Poyer too but Commings is bigger, taller, more physical and faster.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1582758-sanders-commings-scouting-report-nfl-outlook-for-georgia-cb

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I think it’s good value for the slot and we needed another DB

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen
  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I disagree a bit with what Paddy wrote in that article. I do think the Chiefs will churn the DB’s a lot. Other than Berry and Flowers. I don’t think the holdovers are very safe.

  • Sabersimon

    What do you think we are going to take next? QB or DE or something else?

    • Sabersimon

      I think DE but maybe Bray…I think he will be there at the end of the 6th

    • Ehud

      I’d probably either go Dysert or one of these 3 DE/OLB: Michael Buchanon, Chase Thomas, Cornelius Washington.

      • Ehud

        IOL Quessenberry is an option as well.

        • Sabersimon

          Yeah thats what I was thinking

      • CTChiefFan

        Jenkins is gone, I like Thomas & Washington, how about Swope

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      best value. At this point, you are looking for anyone who can come in and compete for a roster spot.

  • Jim Harper

    Ryan Swope is still out there. I’m hoping!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    How about Quessenberry?

  • t_tyrance

    Ryan swope!!! Please

    • Stacy D. Smith

      He just went to AZ.

      • t_tyrance

        Yea that’s a little Depressing the only guy i want them to get now is matt scott But the way that they are drafting that doesn’t look Likely either

  • KCMikeG

    Willams or Rogers at WR or Quessenberry OL please

  • CTChiefFan

    Swope, Thomas or Boyett

  • Ehud

    Who is Eric Kush? Looking for tape now.

    • Ehud

      Watching his Pro Day right now.

      • Sabersimon

        good?

  • CTChiefFan

    C Eric Kush????????????????

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Wow, that’s out of left field

  • Ehud

    I think (hope) the Kush pick wins my Owl award (pick that makes me go, “Who?”)

  • CTChiefFan

    From NFL Draft Zone: “Eric Kush is probably one of the best all around offensive lineman in
    the entire NFL Draft. I watched several games of the Vulcan center, and
    the first word that comes to my mind is versatile. Versatile is a
    perfect word for a person that can play anywhere on the offensive line.
    Over his career he has been asked to play up and down the line, and I
    feel at 6’3 and 302 pounds, he can play any position, but is more likely
    to be used as a guard or center at the next level. Eric Kush is a name
    to remember, because I believe you will hear it called in April.” Damond Talbot
    A bit of a stretch but encouraging

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Versatile is good. we need someone who can fill multiple positions

  • Jim Harper

    Had a hard time finding any info on this guy. 6’4″ 305 with 12 starts @ Center and an honor student throughout his college career. This is another head scratcher for me.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Eric Kush as the top of two R6′s. Kind of a head-scratcher for me. He probably could’ve been had as a UDFA. I thought there were better players still on the board. They must HATE the quarterbacks in the bottom-half of this class.

    • ladner morse

      My first thought was that Reid wanted to make sure he got this guy and he didn’t want to lose him as a UDFA… so he took him in the 6th to make sure.

  • KCMikeG

    I think R&D must feel we are set at QB & WR. Eric Kush?? WTH? I really would have preferred Quessenberry here as Mayock has been high on him since the Senior Bowl and he just went to Houston 6 picks later.

    grrr, I just got back from getting food. What do I see…… more F’n Manti Teo crap!

    • ladner morse

      Yea.. there stories they keep regurgitating…. makes me want to regurgitate.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I am waiting for Fisher to just pancake his overrated ass

  • Ehud

    Top Ten Available on my Board: 1) CB Poyer, 2) WR Rogers, 3) QB Bray, 4) S Jefferson, 5) OT Faulk, 6) OLB Thomas 7) QB Dysert, 8) OG Bailey, 9) OLB Buchanon, 10) RB Jamison

    Most dropped due to off the field or medical issues.

    • Norman Gunn

      I cannot believe Dysert and Bray is available.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I am surprised poyer is still available

  • Lyle Graversen

    I wouldn’t mind them taking some DL depth with one of the next 2 picks: Joe Kruger, Everette Dawkins, Mike Catapano, or Lawrence Okoye.

  • ladner morse

    I was hoping the Chiefs would take a shot at Kapron Lewis-Moore. Ravens got him.

  • ladner morse

    Hoping for Okoye….

  • Ehud

    A guy I like and would seek out in UDFA is USC CB Nickell Robey. Hard to explain why I like him. Just a gut feeling. Not even sure he fits what the Chiefs are doing but I like him.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    oh look, more manti teo…. barf

    • KCMikeG

      I can’t wait to chant “Girlfriend” repeatedly when he gets smoked by Moeaki!!

  • Ehud

    Every minute NFL Network spends on Teo’s press conference the less I respect/like NFL Network.

  • Ehud

    Man, if the Chiefs wanted a K-state player they should have gone Brown or Harper earlier. FB, really?

    • Ehud

      To be fair the more I’m seeing about Braden Wilson the more I like him.

  • ladner morse

    Braden Wilson. 6-4 251. NflDraftScout lists him as a FB and a LB.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    ok, a FB at this point. That’s fine

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    One more Chiefs pick

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Princeton! wow

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Looks like Catapano is a 5 technique prospect

  • Ehud

    I give this draft a C. Grade could go up once I see what our Offense and Defense look like so I can find out if these players fit our scheme & playing style. I’ll also give the Front Office a bit of a curve on the grade because the scouting was the previous regime’s. The next draft is the one that I’ll grade harshly because they have seen & studied the team in action under the current style and scheme, had their scouts in place, and should be fully prepared.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      I think it’s fair to cut the scouting dept some slack. It will take awhile for Dorsey to really align them to what he and Reid wants

      • Ehud

        I essentially mulliganed Pioli’s first draft, Dorsey & Reid deserve same consideration.

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          not sure you can really do that. We can’t throw classes away. but grading on a bit of a curve is ok. IMO

          • Ehud

            I agree. However, for Pioli, remember he and Haley were later than usual hires and they were making the switch to the 3-4. All the previous scouting was done with the 4-3 in mind. I didn’t truly throw the class away but, as you said, graded it on a curve.

  • Ehud

    There goes Poyer

  • Ehud

    Just because this draft is over doesn’t mean that Albert won’t be traded. All it would take is one injury or one player who disappoints expectations and the Chiefs’ phone could be ringing. Of course at that point I ask for a 1st rounder.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Albert could still get traded. I think the Chiefs would like to move on from him. It could be a problem going forward.

      • Ehud

        Yeah, I’m ready to move on from him. But I’m getting something for him.

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          it might not be as much as we want/hope

          • Ehud

            True, but a 1st rounder is my starting price. The Chiefs need to get a certain amount as well otherwise they will look/be foolish looking back at this draft.

            Also, if I’m paying for him then he’ll play wherever I want. If he doesn’t play well then he loses money next year when he hits free agency.

  • Ehud

    If I’m the Chiefs I’m on the phone with Chase Thomas, Kevin Reddick, Keith Pough, Nickell Robey, & Tony Jefferson right now.

    • Lyle Graversen

      I think QB Matt Scott would be at the top of my list.

      • Lyle Graversen

        Ryan Griffin of Tulane would be next.

  • KCMikeG

    Catapano from Princeton and I’m going WTH? But then I looked him up. Wow!

    Ivy Leaguers must overcome several hurdles in a scout’s eyes, the lower level of competition being the most obvious. But N.F.L. teams want players who consider football the most important aspect of their lives, and they fear that players with broad interests may not have the requisite love for football.

    “It’s nice to have players with no fallback plan,” said Daniel Jeremiah, a former N.F.L. scout who is now an NFL Network analyst.

    In that respect, Ross Tucker, a former Princeton offensive lineman who spent all or parts of five seasons in the N.F.L., had the highest praise for Catapano.

    “He’s a football meathead that just happens to be smart enough to get into Princeton,” Tucker said. “The other guys on the team tell me he’s psycho.”

    Catapano trained with Chuck Smith, a former N.F.L. defensive end. He ate with Smith at his home, watched film with him, “went into the bunker,” as Smith put it.

    “My goal is to train this new generation of pass rushers,” Smith said. “They don’t want bull rushers. It’s more important for guys to get there faster than ever. If Mike Catapano is in there on third down, over the biggest guy in the league, I promise he will destroy that guy. He’s a special guy because of his effort.”
