Readers’ Mock Draft: Kansas City Chiefs Fourth Round Pick


The votes are in and it is now time to announce the Readers’ third round pick for the Kansas City Chiefs.

With the 87th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Readers of Arrowhead Addict select Donte Moncrief, a wide receiver from Ole Miss.

A wonderful selection. Moncrief is a stunning 6-2, 221 pounds with 4.40 speed. That size and speed combination is insane. At the NFL Combine, Moncrief was a top performer in the 40 yard dash, vertical jump, and broad jump. His athletic skills are off the charts and he could turn into the outside deep threat the Chiefs so desperately need.

As things stand, the Readers’ draft class is as follows:

1st Round: S Calvin Pryor

3rd Round: WR Donte Moncrief

That’s a really solid start to the class. But the key for the Chiefs is going to be how they execute in day three of the draft. Now that burden is on you. Here are the candidates for the Chiefs’ fourth round pick.

OT JA’WUAN JAMES

Kansas City needs to replenish the offensive line depth they lost over the first few hours of free agency. James is a right tackle with the flexibility to move around the offensive line, something Andy Reid covets from his linemen. Donald Stephenson is penciled in as the starting right tackle but James could give him a run for his money in training camp and the preseason.

RB/WR DRI ARCHER

The fastest guy at the NFL Combine, Archer would be excellent in the special teams and slot receiver role being left vacant by Dexter McCluster. His size and lack of experience at wide receiver are an issue, just like it was for McCluster. But Archer has significantly more speed than McCluster and could be a weapon for KC.

DE CHRIS SMITH

An outside linebacker prospect, Smith has good speed and strength to be a productive pass rushing threat from the outside. His size, 6-1, is a bit of an issue as is his quickness. He also played defensive end for most of his career at Arkansas.

QB AARON MURRAY

There was a time where many felt Murray would be a first round pick in this year’s draft. But a knee injury at the end of last season derailed those hopes. Murray is a bit undersized and doesn’t have a big arm, but he was a smart, accurate, and productive player for Georgia.

TE C.J. FIEDOROWICZ

Tight ends are extremely important in Andy Reid’s offensive scheme and Fiedorowicz could help fill some of the needs the Chiefs have at the position. Fiedorowicz is quicker than fast, has great size and huge hands, and was productive for Iowa. Unlike a former Iowa tight end the Chiefs once drafted, Fiedorowicz does not have an injury history. There are some who think is a top three tight end in this class.

    I voted for James, but at the same time, I think Archer or Fiedorowicz would be awesome selections at this spot as well. Good job again Ben!! I also still think we should nab Su’A Filo at #23…………..just sayin!! GO CHIEFS!!!!!!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    With the top two needs addressed (Pryor and Moncrief), I’m intrigued by Aaron Murray. He had an outstanding college career. Uber productive guy in the SEC.

    • Ben Nielsen

      Worst case, he’d be a great backup and significantly cheaper than Daniel.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        Only thing about that is, do you really want two quarterbacks behind Smith with zero live game experience? Daniel got his first start last year, but it was still his fifth season in the NFL.

        • Ben Nielsen

          Daniel had nine career attempts when the Chiefs gave him all that money to be Smith’s backup. If teams are willing to start QB’s as rookies then having a couple of young backups shouldn’t be an issue IMO.

          • Stacy D. Smith

            He had four seasons logged in the NFL though. He’s taken plenty of preseason snaps and has been able to prepare during the week since 2009. If we draft Murray and move or release Daniel, we’ll have two backups with a combined experience of just one year in the league. Alex Smith has only played 15 games or more, in a single-season, twice his whole career. I don’t like the thought of either Bray or Murray being thrust into the starting lineup if he goes down.

          • Ben Nielsen

            In fairness, I don’t like the idea of Chase Daniel coming in for Smith either haha. But I see your point. It’s a risk I’d be okay with the Chiefs taking. Daniel/Bray/Murray/whoever, if Smith goes down we’re in a lot of trouble anyway.

          • Stacy D. Smith

            I think I’d prefer a more seasoned player in that role as well, but Daniel didn’t completely wet himself when he had to play against Sandy’s 1′s last season.

          • unclejesse40

            So I have started watching some footage of the QB from Cornell, Jeff Matthews. 6’4″ 230 super intelligent and highly competitive. Appears to have a ton of potential and I would love to see him get to work with Reid for a couple of years.

          • Stacy D. Smith

            I’ve heard a lot of good things about the guy. Draftniks think of him as a sort of Peyton Manning, coach-on-the-field type with a live arm. Not real athletic, but he’s a four-year starter and has a ton of upside.

          • KCMikeG

            CBS Sports has Boyd listed as a 7th round pick to an UDRFA. That is where I think we could be best served at QB.

          • KCMikeG

            He sure played well week #17 vs. the dolt starters. That gave me some piece of mind and I felt a little better about his pay check.

  • Randy Elenberger

    Add T/G Billy Turner from North Dakota State University for the 124th pick and I’ll take him. Tremendous upside and ideal size and ability to play both T/G. Love that kid!

    • KCMikeG

      Dorsey has had him in for a visit too! I think you called this pick!

  • CrispySBC

    James without a question … he’s started 49 games, for Tennessee, at RT and is a complete beast. 6’6″ 311# .. 35 in. arms .. speed is pretty good at 5.34 40 ..1.82 10 yd. split .. benched 22 reps and a 4.56 shuttle!! The guy is a rock at RT and has played in both zone and man blocking scheme. He had issues with weight and needs to add bulk but man can this kid play. One of the things I really like is that he’s played his entire career at RT … I know this goes contrary to AR likes versatile guys but he can come in a start at RT … day 1 starter in the 4th round … please how could we be this lucky!

  • Stan Colbert

    James is a stud! If he is still on the board he got my vote! Heard a lot of noise about Chiefs and Murray, but I just don’t see it! Why give Daniel that money if no confidence, Why give up on Bray, unless he doesn’t have the brain to learn the system. Bray seems to have better tools than Murray.
