Players I would like as Chiefs after the jump.


 I don't go for any of the pure FBs as I feel we have the spot filled. I would take any of the top 9 TE prospects as they would greatly improve our team. Add any of them after the 2nd round. Would prefer to see this position filled in FAs but if not then either take one of the top 9 prospects after pick 2a, or wait tell the last 5th rd pick and get one of the following players.

13. Richard Dickson - I like this player and see good upside.


17. Scott Sicko - I liked what I saw of this player in the playoffs this year I feel he will be a good NFL player.


20. Clay Harbor - is someone that I think is worth looking at.


22. Dennis Morris - this player apears to have all the tools and a 5th rd pick on him would not be to much.


23. Jamie McCoy - somewhat undersized but speed and blocking ability make him a good option to me.


27. Jeff Cottam - Not much to speak about with his college carear but chemistry with his brother could make it worth taking a shot with him.


28. Greg Boone - Although he had a quite senior season I see him as a potential starter in the NFL.

 I hope this post gives you some good insight into this years FB and TE class.
