The Chiefs have alot of Holes to fill this off season. Im not gonna give you a mock draft instead I'm going to let you know of a couple guys I watched through out their collegiate career that I think would fit what were doing.
Ndamukong Suh- This guy is as athletic as a LB at 300 6'4. In 2008, He returned 2 ints for TDs. Crick, Who plays next to him, has 9 sacks. It takes 3 people to block him period. He can play NT as well. We don't need to trade Dorsey, Draft Suh and play him inside. He will beat Double teams which is what we need. Last week at OU Suh was block by the G and The C, and the RB had to come in and help because he was beating them. He is the most dominate player in the nation. I hope the Chiefs don't have a chance to draft him, They would have too have the 1st pick.

Eric Berry- What can I say that already hasn't been said? He is a man beast at 5'11 203. QBs don't test him, They throw away from him. He is 8 yards short of the All-Time NCAA Interception return yds. He can cover the run effectively, and cancels out one side of the field in pass coverage. The Chiefs haven't had a play-maker like Berry since they lost Jared Allen. Some say he is a "The safest pick" but he has a tendency to be to aggressive and not wrap up. He is a home run hitter but sometimes misses the play because he goes all or nothing. His transition to the NFL might depend on the coaching staff and team that takes him. The Chiefs would have to pick pretty early to get Berry, He will probably go in the 3-5 range.
C.J. Spiller- He is an all-around play-maker, He does it all. He catches passes out of the back field, Returns Punts, and Runs between the Tackle. I believe he would automatically be the most explosive player on our team. He could fall to the early 2nd, but I doubt it. I believe the Chiefs would have to move up or down to the bottom 1st to get Spiller. He plays on a bad team, bad o line, and still seems to be able to put up numbers. Only a few players in the NCAA have an 85 yards run for a TD, 85 yard reception for a TD, and an 85 yards return for a TD. He doesn't have the accomplishments that Berry and Suh have but he is a finalist for the Doak Walker award this year. I would love to see Spiller in a Chiefs Uni.
Eric Norwood-He is a DE converted to an OLB. He is only 6'2 252, but he is an effective pass rusher and run stopper. One reason I love Norwood is his pass defense. Any DE we draft to convert to OLB will not have the same coverage skills as Norwood. HE is compared to Joey Porter, He holds the South Carolina all time record for sacks and tackles for loss. He recorded 9 sacks last year, and 75 tackles.
Jerry Hughes- DE for undefeated TCU. At 6'3 257, He is stout enough to stuff the run but agile enough to rush the passer. To say he is a solid pass rusher is an understatement. This guy lives in the back field. Hughes recorded 14 sacks, 18.5 tackles for a loss, 6 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions in 2008. His 14 sacks was enough to lead the NCAA div 1. Some question his Level of Competition but even when he does play MAC or WAC teams they double and triple him. He gets Chipped all day. Alot of scouts project him as a 3-4 rush LB. The Chiefs wouldnt go wrong with him.
Rolando McClain-ILB from Alabama, 6'4 258. This kid does it all, He is a tackling machine. The reason he doesnt miss tackles is a mix of his power and mechanics. He is a perfect form tackler. The best thing about McClain is the intangibles. He is describes as a leader who wants to win. Its not unusual for him to yell at his teammates to make sure they are on their job. Alot of people compare him to Brian Urlacher. He had 95 tackles, 3 sacks, and 1 int. He would be a starter on this team for at least 6 years. He is the best ILB to come out this year. Alot of people think Brandon Spikes is better, but I have to disagree. Spikes is a 2 down LB, McClain is an every down LB.
I know, No OL. Im gonna get to the OL soon. Will do a different post strictly for offensive Linemen. I hope this gives some of you a little insight on some people that would help the Chiefs. Let me know what you think. Thank You for reading my post.
