 Those are my prospects for the 3/4 OLB position in the 2010 NFL Draft. Now the players I would like the Chiefs to look at after the jump.


My Chief prospects.

1. * Brandon Graham, Has the ability to be a dominating force at OLB in the NFL could also be a very good 4/3 DE.


2. * Sean Weatherspoon, may be better suied for the ILB position in the 3/4 but will be a playmaker no matter where he lines up. 


3. * Willie Young, Healthy player who will give consistant 100% effort and a solid prospect.


4. ** Brandon Lang, Comparison to Umunyiora and Ware make this prospect high on my list.


5. * Eric Norwood, Looks to have alot of potential could be a Pro Bowl caliber player or just average.


6. ** Dexter Davis, Is really pulling me in I am know a fan of his. Has never missed a game and has put up stats that make me feel this player WILL have a good NFL carear. (with 4th - 5th rd projection would be a great option.


7. * Alex Carrington, speed could be a ? but his pass rush ability make him someone high on my list.


8. ** Perry Riley, Yes another LSU player but this one has been very consistant and a great performer. A really good prospect.


9. James Ruffin, Again speed could be an issue but just a great all around football player who I have watched a bit of.


10. Lary Hart, Excellent speed and 2 time Defensive player of the year if we end up making trades and get a later pick in the draft an excellent option.
