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

3 of 3

Staff Writer           Tuesday Evening            Thursday Afternoon

Now, I know that this is completely unlikely to get even two of these guys, but I think they have high ceilings. I also feel that they can be plugged into the system and be immediate starters and impact the Chiefs overall game plan.

My top five picks:

DeVante Parker

Big, fast and with good hands, would be a perfect No. 2 next to Maclin.

Tyler Lockett

Hometown kid, amazingly good slot receiver and one that would be a steal in round two or three.

Ereck Flowers

Beefing up the offensive line is a priority, and Flowers would add a big presence and help move the line for Jamaal, as well as protect Smith.

Dorial Green-Beckham (eh, why not)

An intriguing prospect that is unpolished, could be the missing key in the Chiefs wide receiving group.

Landon Collins

Fast safety that will help the Chiefs in the secondary, hits hard and would help in the overall defense of the Chiefs.

   C Cameron Erving

Eric Kush is the entire depth chart at the center position right now. He needs help and the top-rated center in the draft could be available to the Chiefs in either the first or second round.

  ILB Eric Kendricks

  ILB Stephone Anthony

Justin Houston is rumored to be disgruntled. Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, and Mike DeVito are all over 30, and the latter two are coming off season-long injuries. The Chiefs defense could look entirely different in the near future. Best to be prepared with whichever of these players is available for KC.

DT Danny Shelton

The best WR available in the second or third round.

OK, this is a bit of a cop out. The very best WRs are going to be long gone, and this player will likely find his stride in a couple of years, potentially when the Chiefs have a different QB. Pick about any WR’s name from the other writers, and I would be OK with that.

Kansas City still has a glaring hole at the No. 2 receiver spot. I’m excited about what Albert Wilson can become, but the Chiefs need options there.

Phil Dorsett

Tyler Lockett

Landon Collins

Jaelen Strong

Marcus Peters

The secondary has talented starters, but could use blue-chip talent to bolster the competition level there.

If you’re keeping track, below are the prospects our AA writers liked most, with tallies displayed on the left. Every other prospects appeared only once in our writer’s poll.

3 writers chose C Cameron Irving

3 writers chose WR Tyler Lockett

2 writers chose ILB Eric Kendricks

2 writers chose OT La’el Collins

2 writers chose ILB Stephone Anthony

2 writers chose WR Jaelen Strong

2 writers chose S Landon Collins

2 writers chose WR Nelson Agholor

Arrowhead Addict writers polled here prefer that the Chiefs fix the wide receiver position more than any other position, with the OL and the ILBs not far behind. Is that any surprise?

There you have it, Addict fans. So, who’s in your your “Fav Five?” Who would you be thrilled to have showing up on the Arrowhead turf on Sunday afternoons each autumn for the next 10+ years?
