This is where the depth of this draft really begins to show. There are several players in this “second round” portion of the top 100 that are considered possible first round selections. While we may all spot a player or two and go “that guy will never last that long”, just remember that if that player does in fact go higher than his ranking it will push another good player down the board. Regardless of who it is, the Chiefs have a chance to draft a very good player that should be able to contribute right away at pick number 49.

As I looked over the highlighted range for the Chiefs second round pick the thing that jumped out at me most was that there were three ILB prospects that made the list (and that doesn’t even count the criminally low ranked Stephone Anthony that you’ll see in the next section). If the Chiefs have ILB as a position that they would like to address in this draft without abandoning their BPA philosophy, the second round looks like a spot where that could happen. There are also a couple of intriguing deep threat WRs in this range in Devin Smith and Sammie Coats.

You’ll notice that there is a clear lack of OL talent graded out in the second round. So if the Chiefs pass on OL in the first round but still want OL help it may not happen for them in the second round either. Finally, despite the fact that none of them fell in the designated “pick range” for the Chiefs, there are six CBs that fell in the second round range of this big board and many of them possess the physical attributes the Chiefs seem to covet for Bob Sutton’s press man coverage system.
