Note: This is the 2nd time I am posting Marshall’s board. It being draft day, I wanted you guys to know as much about as many players as possible. =)
One great feature we have here at Arrowhead Addict is our Forums section. In particular, the Addict Posts is a chance for you to write your own blogs about the Chiefs. It has been slow goings in the Addict Posts but business is starting to pick up. Exemplary Addict Posts always have the potential to be promoted to the main page and that is what is happening here.
Reader Marshall has put together a draft board. I highly recommend checking out this post and educating yourself on some players you may not know much about but that could be Chiefs by this time next week. Marshall obviously put a lot of work into this so give him your thoughts.
Good work, Marshal! Thanks for contributing!
From reader Marshal Cheek in the Addict Posts Forum:
This draft board doesn’t exactly have all of the best players, it just has all of the players that i think would fit the chiefs system on both offense and defense. even some players that might fit the chiefs but that aren’t good enough in my opinion, have been left off. also, players of positions that we dont need to draft, have been left off of this list. the scouting reports are a shortened version of CBS’s scouting reports. also, some positions, (like WR) don’t list the top players. for example, since i dont think we should draft a WR in the 1st round, i didnt list any 1st round WRs

Progressed well through college. Great accuracy, great arm strength, but forces too much and sometimes throws off back foot. Has above average college experience under center, quick release. Agile, avoids big hits, throws very well on the run. Has the work ethic and intelligence to be an NFL starter. Little to no risk for injuries

Good hands, decent route runner, tough, coachable. Bad blocker. Will be a good slot receiver.
