AA writers “Fav Five” for the K.C. Chiefs 2015 draft

2 of 3

Senior Staff Writer                          Weekend mornings

WR Jaelen Strong

Strong has made his fair share of one-handed grabs, plus he’ll be even better than Bowe at blocking downfield for JC.

ILB Stephone Anthony

Watch his tape. Smile. A lot. Now pray the Chiefs get him.

OG Laken Tomlinson

Knock-out performances during the Senior Bowl week, plus solid tape are convincing.

WR Tyler Lockett

Hand and glove for Reid’s scheme. Toub will love him, too.

OT Cedric Ogbuehi

Liberty Bowl ACL injury kept him from being a high first rounder. Will be a great value.

Round 1

Cameron Erving, C/OG Florida St

Best center prospect in the draft and has the agility to function in Reid’s offense.

T.J. Clemmings OT/OG Pittsburgh

Raw, but a high ceiling. Only played two years at OT.

Round 2

Nelson Agholor, WR USC

Quick underneath receiver. Could be a good safety blanket for Alex Smith.

Round 3

Ty Sambrailo OT/OG Colorado St

Needs time in the weight room, but has the high athletic ceiling Dorsey covets. Probably a better fit at guard.

Eric Rowe CB/S Utah

Has the body and speed the Chiefs want. If he washes out at CB, he could play single high safety.

For the sake of variety and debate, I’ll throw out the following,

Andrus Peat, OT

Big, athletic and smart; an NFL-ready OT who can contribute immediately.

Brett Hundley, QB

Big, solid arm, good pocket presence, extremely mobile when he needs to be, gets rid of the ball quickly in the short passing game and can get the ball down the field accurately. An Andy Reid style QB; coachable talent with a ton of upside.

Cody Prewitt, S

Prewitt, almost certain to make an immediately impact on special teams, possesses many desirable attributes of a modern-day NFL safety; among other things, he tackles aggressively, pops receivers, and, in coverage, he’s a tall, rangy ball hawk with great hands.

Denzel Perryman, ILB

Not only do the Chiefs to need to shore up the middle of their defense immediately but they also need to think long term about who might be the kind of dominating presence to fill Derrick Johnson’s shoes once he’s gone; in other words, a guy like Denzel Perryman.

Dezmin Lewis, WR

Small-school prospect with the kind of raw talent and physical attributes that I believe can be coached up to NFL grade.
