Should The Chiefs Pass On A First Round Wide Receiver?


ArmchairAddict1

The Kansas City Chiefs need another starting wide receiver to go along with incumbent Dwayne Bowe. This is something that every Chiefs fan can agree upon. As word spread on Saturday evening that KC was out of the running for the services of DeSean Jackson, KC fans were forced to turn their attention back to the NFL draft in their search to find this elusive starting receiver. Donnie Avery didn’t cut it. Jon Baldwin was a bust. Steve Breaston didn’t live up to expectations. Chris Chambers disappointed. Mark Bradley? Samie Parker? There is an endless line of second-rate failures that have lined up across from Bowe in the starting lineup for the Chiefs. None of them stuck (I guess technically, Avery is still on the roster). None of them were productive. None of them were the solution.

On the surface, the solution to this problem seems simple. This draft is loaded with WR talent. Every expert seems to agree that it’s the deepest position in the draft. So the Chiefs have a good chance to finally fill the black hole of production in their wide receiver core by taking the best WR available with their first pick in the NFL draft.

Assuming that the Chiefs stay put at pick #23, there are three prime candidates that they could consider in Marqise Lee, Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandin Cooks. While all three are unlikely to still be there, most seem to believe at least one (if not more) will be. They all possess traits that would make them a good fit for Andy Reid’s offense and a good complement to the bigger-bodied Bowe.

Problem solved, right?

Possibly, but there is another way to look at this WR draft class. While KC could obviously take a WR with the first pick, I’m not sure that’s actually the best way to get the best value out of the picks that they have. While the Alex Smith trade has worked out well for the Chiefs, it does leave them without a second-round pick in this talent-rich draft. That means that, as things currently stand, KC won’t make their second selection until pick #87 overall. I think most would agree that given KC’s limited cap space and free agent signings that it would be nice for them to get a player with that pick that can contribute as much as possible right away.

The fact that there is such incredible depth in this draft at WR means that it is the position that is most likely to still have a real impact player available when the Chiefs pick in the third round. So there lies the question. Are the Chiefs better off taking the best WR available with the first pick and then addressing positions like guard, safety and defensive front seven players later on, or taking an impact player at one of those positions with their first round pick and then banking on a good WR still being there in the third round?

If the Chiefs could hit on a third-round WR, it would probably be the easiest way to draft two key contributors without a second-round pick.

So who are some of the WRs that may be available in the third round when KC picks? After spending hours scouring the internet for draft rankings, mock drafts, scouting reports, and YouTube videos, I’ve determined that it’s almost impossible to come up with a definitive WR ranking list. There are so many WRs that are legit talents but have different strengths that you will consistently see the same player predicted to go anywhere between the second and fifth rounds.

As far as I can tell, these are 18 WRs that seem to have the best chance to go in the first three rounds:

Sammy Watkins – Clemson
Mike Evans – Texas A&M
Marqise Lee – USC
Odell Beckham Jr. – LSU
Brandin Cooks – Oregon St.
Kelvin Benjamin – FSU
Allen Robinson – Penn St.
Davante Adams – Fresno St.
Jordan Matthews – Vanderbilt
Jarvis Landry – LSU
Paul Richardson – Colorado
Donte Moncrief – Ole Miss
Martavis Bryant – Clemson
Jared Abbrederis – Wisconsin
Bruce Ellington – South Carolina
Brandon Coleman – Rutgers
Robert Herron – Wyoming
Cody Latimer – Indiana

I don’t envy NFL scouting departments, those are a lot of WRs to scout, and I narrowed the list down to just the guys I think could go in the first three rounds. All of the players listed above were labeled as having starting WR upside (maybe not from day one) by at least one source that I feel is credible. Some are seen as having greater upside, some are seen as “safe,” some are “boom or bust,” some are slot guys, some are deep threats, some are possession receivers. There’s something for everyone on that list.

So who might KC target with the 87th pick? Well, first off they need to have multiple guys that they would be happy with for this plan to work. If you cut that list in half between Jordan Matthews and Jarvis Landry, everyone on the bottom half I would classify as “could fall to KC but could also go before they pick”. I think the first nine on the list will likely all be gone. The good news for Chiefs fans is that I believe that KC would at least consider eight of the nine remaining WRs on that list. Of those nine, the only one I don’t think KC will consider is Rutger’s Brandon Coleman. Coleman is a 6-6, 225 lbs Jon Baldwin clone. He doesn’t fit Andy Reid’s typical WR type and doesn’t seem like a very good compliment to Dwayne Bowe to me at all.

So who are these other eight WRs? Well, as much as I’d like to say that I have a detailed personal scouting report based on hours of game tape for each one, that’s not the case. I have read multiple scouting reports and watched two-three videos (some just highlight tapes) on each one. So below I’ll give you my first impression after doing a little homework on them and then if you’d like to go look them up for yourselves, you can.

Jarvis Landry – LSU – 6-0, 205 lbs

There was once a point when Landry was seen as an equally good prospect as his teammate Odell Beckham Jr., but as scouts watched more tape, Beckham Jr. began to emerge as the bigger playmaker. That was solidified by Landry’s very poor 40 time at the combine (4.77). However, while Landry may not be flashy, he is a consistent and dependable receiver. He runs good routes and does a great job catching the football. While most KC fans want someone to stretch the field more, Landry could be a consistent and reliable target for Alex Smith who throws a lot more short passes than he does deep balls anyway.

Paul Richardson – Colorado – 6-0, 175 lbs

Richardson is absolutely the deep threat that many KC fans are clamoring for. He was timed at the combine at 4.40 in the 40 and he plays every bit that fast, if not faster. His thin, 175-pound frame is his biggest concern. He has had some injury issues and may not be an ideal option for going over the middle against NFL safeties or linebackers. There is a little DeSean Jackson in his game and CBS’s Rob Rang actually compared him to Emmanuel Sanders who we obviously know KC was interested in.

Donte Moncrief – Ole Miss – 6-2, 221 lbs

Moncrief is a player that I’m surprised there hasn’t been more talk about. While he isn’t huge, his 6-2, 221-pound frame is big enough to overpower some NFL DBs while his timed speed is still impressive (4.40 time in the 40 at the combine). His highlights are filled with pretty good routes and some nice grabs. I think in most years Moncrief would be seen as a possible first-round prospect, but has been lost in the shuffle a little this year with all the WR talent. In my opinion, he’s the most complete WR that could be available in the third round, and one that actually has true #1 WR upside. If somehow every one of these eight WRs were still on the board when KC picked (not going to happen) Moncrief would be my first choice (others may not agree). Unfortunately, if my take on him is correct, he could also be one of the least likely to fall to pick #87.

Martavis Bryant – Clemson – 6-4, 211 lbs

While it took some time for Odell Beckham Jr. to establish himself as the better WR prospect at LSU, Martavis Bryant has been the clear #2 to Sammy Watkins from the get go. Bryant is a good deep threat showing 4.42 speed at the combine to go along with his good height, leaping ability and catch radius. So on one hand, he could help KC with his ability to stretch the field, but he isn’t the best route runner or most reliable pass catcher of this group. In my opinion, he has a high-bust potential.

Jared Abbrederis – Wisconsin – 6-1, 195 lbs

Abbrederis is a player who really has my interest. First off, I promise not to make any Wes Welker comparisons just because he’s white. That having been said, his scouting reports read like the most typical “white guy” WR prospect ever, full of terms like “hard worker, coachable, high football IQ” and all the other stereotypes people like to put on white WRs. This is only amplified by the fact that he started as a walk-on and worked his way to becoming one of the school’s most prolific WRs ever. Then he went and put up only four reps on the bench press at the combine to solidify the also very stereotypical “non-athletic” label. However, if you’re assuming from all those labels that Abbrederis is some plodding possession receiver that just catches everything in sight, you’d be wrong. Abbrederis actually ran a 4.5 forty at the combine and was used as a deep threat consistently at Wisconsin. He probably doesn’t have the speed to take the top off a defense at the next level, but he’s fast enough and a good enough route runner to create separation. His route running and great hands would make him a great go-to target in an offense that is based on the short pass like the Chiefs run.

Bruce Ellington – South Carolina – 5-9, 197 lbs

Ellington was a two sport star at South Carolina, playing point guard for former K-State coach Frank Martin on the Gamecock’s basketball team. The fact that Ellington had to split time between two sports has left his football skills a little rough around the edges. You see the word “raw” used a lot to describe him. He has the work ethic and intelligence (think starting point guard) that most believe he’ll really blossom in the NFL once he is fully focused on football. While not very tall, he does have a strong build and ran a 4.45 in the 40 at the combine. CBS’s Rob Rang actually compared him to the Packers’ Randall Cobb. I see a lot of talent here, but KC would have to be patient to bring him along.

Robert Herron – Wyoming – 5-9, 193 lbs

Herron is another intriguing prospect. He possesses possibly the most impressive straight line speed of all the WR prospects listed here. He only ran the 40 in 4.48 at the combine, which surprised many since his tape shows a much faster player. This was supported by his pro day where some scouts had him clocked in the mid 4.20s. While he’s short, like Ellington he’s also strong and tough. He played against questionable competition and his route running is unrefined, but if KC is looking for an explosive play maker in the third round, Herron could be a candidate.

Cody Latimer – Indiana – 6-3, 215 lbs

Latimer wasn’t a WR that was getting much buzz even just a couple of months ago. He was recovering from foot surgery and wasn’t able to participate at the NFL combine. Then last week at his pro day he put up a 4.38 40 time and 39″ vertical jump to go along with 23 bench press reps. Those impressive measurables in a 6-3 body have scouts drooling. He’s another “raw” talent, but some are now speculating that he could jump all the way up to the late first or early second round. While his tape is impressive at times, that still seems a little high to me. Still, similar to what I said about Donte Moncrief, Latimer is a WR that could be a true #1 WR if he’s able to put it all together. I see him as another boom-or-bust pick with a high upside.

So what do you think, Addicts? Do you see enough talent on that list to risk passing on a first round WR? Would KC be better off taking a player in the first round at a position that doesn’t run as deep in this draft? I think I’m leaning that direction. I’d like to see KC add another difference maker to the defensive front seven to help put pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Unless you get lucky, those players are usually found in the first round. If the Chiefs could add another dominant difference maker to their defensive front AND hit on one of these wide receivers in the third round I think KC would be in great shape. They could then target players in the fourth and fifth round to come in and compete at positions like safety and offensive line.

Agree or disagree?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter so please take a second to share in the comments below.

As always, thanks for reading and GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Joshua10237

    Ladamian Washington? He put up decent combine and is 4.4 wr can catch and has height

    • Lyle Graversen

      I considered Washington, but he just missed the cut along with Josh Huff or Oregon, Mike Davis of Texas, and Shaq Evans of UCLA. I would predict those guys going more in the 4th or 5th round but only because of how deep this WR group is. In a lot of other years they might have been 2nd or 3rd round guys.

      • berttheclock

        On other player you did not mention and I believe that was due to where should he qualify as a player, rb, wr, kr or all of them is D’Anthony Thomas of Nike. Extremely fast, but, where will he fit? A Darren Sproles type RB, a slot and kick returner. He can line up in so many different places on an offense. He is really going to light up an offense for some team.

  • berttheclock

    Hmmm, Alex Smith throws more short passes before he goes long. Geez, who would have ever thought that after reviewing QB after QB after QB in the West Coast system, there would not be any “Bombs Away, Lamonica type throws”. The West Coast is based on short crisp routes. Montana threw more short passes than long passes. Andy Reid was schooled at BYU under Lavelle Edwards who was a disciple of the old Ohio River style system which is only called the West Coast because when Parcel beat it with the Giants, he snarked that it was from the West Coast.

    Secondly, the Packers have had some great wide outs under Ted Thompson (read Dorsey included) and they have not had one first round choice. 3 second rounders, a 3rd round and a 4th round, an UDFA and a seventh have served Rodgers very well.

    It is all right to refer to Abbederis as a “white guy” receiver because the closest former wide out he resembles is Steve Largent who knew where he was going even though the defensive back trying to cover him did not. Largent made the HOF without any great speed, but, he knew how to get open and he had great hands.

    I’ll cry a smidge when Philly takes Cooks, but, I will be thrilled when the Chiefs take a safety instead.

    • berttheclock

      One other point about the West Coast is Yards After the Catch. Jamaal Charles was 2nd in the league, last year, with 669 YAC. Demaryius Thomas beat him out by 36 yards for the lead. Funny thing is Hilton torched the Chiefs on YACs, yet, for the year, was tied at 35th with two other players with 400 yards each.

    • Stacy D. Smith

      I always find it curious when people (by people I mean typical AS11 detractors) suggest that Smith has no use for speedy receivers. As though speed is only dangerous when it’s down the field. A fleet-footed wideout is dangerous all over the field. Even on shorter routes. Especially for a quarterback like Smith who has excellent ball placement. Avery was killer on crossing routes (when he caught the ball). A speedy, sure-handed wideout who runs good routes can be deadly in this offense.

      Oh and, Alex CAN throw the long ball when he needs to. He did it in 2013.

      • berttheclock

        One interesting point about Avery is in the Philly game, he had a far superior game than Jackson. What really hurt Avery was the Giants reviewed that crossing route tape and had one DB jam him on every play. He never was the same after that or Pederson decided to switch away from those crossing patterns.

  • Justin R Groth

    Lyle do you think that you could do this with saftIes? I feel like haha and proyor are gone by 23 and I don’t know if any other safety is worthy of 1st or not.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Sure Justin, next Monday I’ll take a look at the safety options available after HaHa and Pryor. I’m curious myself.

  • Steve Osborn

    Obviously it depends a lot on who is there when they pick at #23. If there is a stud front 7 pass rusher, it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see them gobble him up and roll the dice a little at WR. On the other hand, with the salary cap issues they have been having, they have to think not just about 2014 but also 2 years down the road. They are going to have to have a new #1 WR. So if there is a guy there at #23 that can fit our scheme as a #2 for now and that ReiDorsey believe can develop into a true #1 in the next couple of years, you can’t really go wrong with that either.

  • Dustin Joyce

    Why is it too easy for people to believe best player available is the answer? Hopefully it’s a WR. But football is as simple as anything in life. Some people are better at art, or singing, or working than others. We want people who are better at the game of football than others. JC for example is flat out better at football than everyone else on our team. We need more of people that are the best at what they do so the best the man across from them (aka- best player available)

    • berttheclock

      Probably because the term “BPA” often comes down to the BPA for a particular need rather than just being the BPA of all remaining players in the draft.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        Exactly. Strict adherence to the BPA philosophy only makes sense for teams with few holes. Teams with glaring needs have to consider other things like positional value and the dearth of positional talent.

  • berttheclock

    I would suggest if Craig Loston of LSU, a safety, is available in the mid rounds, he could be a very good pickup. Hard hitting communicator, who played with Eric Reid, the outstanding safety for the Niners. I realize when the name LSU is mentioned on Chiefs’ boards, it gives some posters pause, but, there are many top former Tigers in the NFL.

  • freshmeat62

    This thing you’re asking is the one thing I wouldn’t do, and that is pick out one position to draft w/ 22 still to pick in front of me. It all boils down to what player they think will have the biggest impact. Everything the Chiefs have/haven’t done in this FAgncy seems to point to them thinking of a WR. That’s the one area they haven’t addressed.

    Everything being equal at #23, I’d probably go defensive front 7, right now maybe a Kony Ealy type. I think he could have a big impact on making their pass rush really good. There will still be quality WR’s available in the 3rd rd.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Great work, Graversen!

    You make a great case for the Chiefs trading down a few spots, if possible.
    That will net us an extra third and help cushion the blow of not having an R2 pick.
    It’d be tough for me to pass on Brandin Cooks or Odell Beckham even if we stood pat at 23. I think they present more positional value than what’s likely to be left at, say, defensive end.

    At some point, you have to plant your feet and make a pick. This is a deep wide receiver class, but those two players appear to be among the best of the best at that position.

    Ideally, two of the three receivers you named will be sitting there at 23. If you find a trade dance partner between 24-29, you move back and hope to get one. Then you go at the third round with two barrels.

    • Lyle Graversen

      If we can get extra picks in this draft, sign me up. The problem is that there are usually a bunch of teams looking to add picks and very few looking to give them up. As far as taking a WR at #23, I’m the opposite, I think Lee is the guy that would be tempting to take if he’s there. While Beckham and Cooks seem like good deep threats I think Lee is a true #1 WR.

      • berttheclock

        Well, I for one would suggest the Chiefs not try to nab that fellow in the white shirt who was chasing after him down the USC sideline. I don’t think Kiffen would bring very much to the Chiefs.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        Lee’s health scares me off. I think there’s a good chance he’ll be the wide receiver version of Tony Moeaki.

        • Lyle Graversen

          Yeah, I’d want KC to really look over his medicals, but if they were comfortable with it I still think he’s the best all around WR of those three.

  • berttheclock

    One other trade down possibility is with the Redskins. They need a wide out and a safety. Should they open Snyder’s vault to Jackson, that would leave them with filling the safety need, or a RT and/or another TE. They are at 34, so, should they trade up with the Chiefs, they would give the Chiefs their 34, plus, their 66th which is the second in the 3rd round and the Chiefs would throw back a 4th to them in order for the point differential (760 minus 560 for the 34 pick) to work out.

  • berttheclock

    The NFL is a copy cat league. So, the current mantra is one has to have tall DBs and tall wide outs. Funny thing is the Seahawks won the SB with two starting five foot ten inch wide outs. The Broncos only scored one TD with the six three DeMaryius Thomas matched up against a six one CB, Bryon Maxwell. Thomas did catch 13 passes, but, the Broncos lost. The interesting thing about Maxwell is how the sixth rounder was acquired. When, Schneider and Carroll arrived in Seattle, there was a former 1st round (2008 draft) d-lineman from USC on the roster. They, immediately, traded him to Detroit for a sixth round pick and used it for Maxwell. This is how champions are built. No sentiment for former players under a HC or no sentiment for 1st rounders picked by a previous regime. Their philosophy is very much “What have you done or can do for us lately?”

    Younger and cheaper, younger and cheaper. They traded a first rounder for a sixth round pick and it paid off. BTW, I have not noticed many tall well paid wide outs in any Super Bowl in a long time, with the possible exception of the very talented Thomas, and even then, defense trumped offense.

  • Jason Seibel

    With the Chiefs bowing out on DeSean Jackson and the Eagles creating a hole in their WR corps, it begs the question of what will Philly now do with their first round pick…one spot in front of the Chiefs. This may force Dorsey to trade up, if both teams are targeting the same player, or realize that they may not get what they want and trade back to pick up a second round pick. The whole situation flips the draft situation on its ear for sure. Great work, though Lyle! Excellent picks to look at!

    • berttheclock

      Ah, the pride of Bleacher Reports appears. I would suggest Philly go after Cooks or Beckham. Either one of them would fit Kelly’s up tempo offense. However, I still believe the trade ups may happen by either the Niners and/or the Redskins. But, much of it will come down to panic on draft day.

      • Jason Seibel

        I miss you, Bert.

        • berttheclock

          AA has some very fine writers, but, I believe you are sorely missed here. Glad, Ben found your BR thread and put it up the other day. Just remember, “Into the air, Junior Birdman, into the air, upside down……” There was a great clip of that from an Audie Murphy WWII movie, where, his 3rd Inf Division outfit sang that to some fly boys in Europe and a dandy free for all broke out.

          • Jason Seibel

            I miss being here, but…well, what can I say? My big mouth got me in trouble. It happens to the best of us. Besides, my Bleacher Report career is just getting started and I hope you’ll pop by from time to time and check me out. I would love to see your comments on my articles there as much as I did here.

          • Jason Seibel

            And yes, it was really cool my old “partner in crime” posted my first Bleacher Report piece on the Morning Fix. I hope there are many more to come!

    • Lyle Graversen

      I think the odds of KC trading up and giving up more picks is zilch. Even if Watkins, Evans, Lee, Beckham, and Cooks all somehow went prior to KC picking at #23, that just means that higher rated players at other positions slipped and KC can either snatch them up or trade back with someone that wants one of the falling players.

      • berttheclock

        The three teams, immediately, ahead of the Chiefs are the Cards at 20, GB at 21 and the Eagles at 22. Should the Chiefs move up to 20 or 21, they would have to give up two lower picks, beginning with their 124th. If a trade is made with the Eagles, they would have to give up a pick lower than the 181 slot, which would mean a sixth plus.

        • Lyle Graversen

          Not happening.

      • Jason Seibel

        I agree. Though they have their old QB and WR, the Chiefs aren’t the 49ers and thus don’t have the extra scratch to play with in the draft. I think the fact that Philly is now more likely to select a first round WR is all the more reason Dorsey should be on the phone trying to trade back.

    • Anthony Poole

      I was thinking the same thing Jason. It seems that Philly, picking just before us, have the same major needs we have, particularly FS and now, possibly WR. There’s a good chance they could grab our “target” just before us. That’s a lot to think about if we decide not to trade down.

  • Brian Dempsey

    I’d like to see the Chiefs trade down and get an extra pick or two, snag the 3-4 DE Tuitt and then pick up Moncrief. By year two, Moncrief could be as good as any WR in this draft and there is no Defensive player in this draft that fits the Chiefs Defense better than Tuitt does. That would be GREAT value.

    Sorry, but I’m not sold on either of the two Safeties, Pryor or Clinton-Dix, with the Chiefs top draft pick and I believe there is a diamond in the rough at the Safety position later on in the draft waiting for Dorsey to pluck him.

  • Chris Tarrants

    I would be happy with most of the options that we have. Grab a stud WR at 23, yes. A stud d lineman ehh but ok. Trade down and get more picks, score. I don’t see us trading up at all but any of the other possibilities would be great. This is why I fix animals and coach the chiefs from my couch via Xbox while Dorsey runs the office at arrowhead

  • Josh Landers

    I like the idea of moncrief coming to kc. Or Bryant. I’ve been seeing mocks that are putting Kyle van noy out of the first. Can anyone tell me why? If there’s no other reason than the hype machine working it’s magic, we could maybe swoop him up at 23…or 30 and have Hali’s future replacement and a little pass rushing depth.

  • Joel Thomas Vazquez

    Absolutely agree about Moncrief. I like the toughness he brings to the running game. He seems to enjoy smacking a DB in the mouth on running plays (and is very good at it to boot). I still think we should go after Jace Amaro with the 23rd or move up to grab Eric Ebron. A great TE is a QB’s best friend, so adding a Vernon Davis or Jimmy Graham like weapon would greatly improve the offense more than a WR. Just MHO.

  • Montez K.

    I like Montcrief and Cody Lattimer and I’m open to Jarvis Landry BUT…I distinctly remember Robert Herron at the Senior Bowl ROCKETING off the line of scrimmage against the country’s best CBs….Youtube Robert Herron senior bowl…1st vid that pops up— and you shall see why I think he will be a beast at the next level…you can’t teach that natural instinct off the line.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Agree, I like Moncrief as an all around WR, Herron as a big play threat, and Abbrederis as a go to guy in a west coast offense. I’d love any of those three in KC. I don’t think Lattimer is going to be there based on the hype he’s getting now. I also think Richardson could be a poor man’s Desean Jackson, but will need to be protected to stay healthy.

  • Stan Colbert

    I really like the idea of picking a falling star at
    #23, someone figured to go between 10-20! Then getting a Moncrief, Herron, or that WU receiver. I also like the idea of trading down, getting maybe a top guard in the second round! Maybe a Safety.
