AA’s Perfect World


When it comes to AA, simply ask and you shall receive. We are doing what we can to be the most intellectually open and honest Chiefs blog you can find. We’ve done everything from posting big boards to airing our internal disagreements. We openly argue and hate on each other so you don’t have to. Although you’re welcome to.

Today, in addition to Paddy’s unrivaled draft access today on the site, I get the nerdy job of charts. Each major writer for this site listed who they’d prefer the Chiefs to draft with the #5 overall, and in what order. Each writer was specifically advised to to not even include prospects they didn’t like at that selection. Each writer was also advised not to include Sam Bradford or Ndamukong Suh, as both are pipe dreams at #5.

Our collective list is above. But our individual lists can be found after the jump, including a swift assessment at the end. Feel free to include your own list in comments.

As you can see, we disagree wildly…


1. Trade back.
2. S Eric Berry, Tennessee
3. CB Joe Haden, Florida
4. WR Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State
5. NT Dan Williams, Tennessee
6. ILB Rolando McClain, Alabama
7. OT Russel Okung, Oklahoma State


1. QB Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame
2. S Eric Berry, Tennessee

My stray observations: As with essentially everywhere in the Chiefs blogosphere, Berry wins the day here. Berry was the top prospect for Paddy, Randy, and Jeremy. Trade down was the second most popular idea, with a surprising Dan Williams roaring right behind — apparently Paddy has had the most successful advocacy of draft season. Interestingly, he has Dan Williams only as his fifth favorite option.

My advocacies of Clausen and Spiller have fallen on deaf ears. Randy is high on Spiller as well but nobody else joins us, and I’m the lone advocate for a Jimmy Clausen future. And Haden got a little love towards the bottom of basically everybody’s lists, as did McClain.

As for the tackles, Okung is easily the favorite, but AA is collectively more interested in Bulaga than Trent Williams (again I am the lone supporter). Don’t ask me why.
