Starting draft talk already?

Yes, I know the Chiefs are in mid-season, but i also love college football just as much. In other words, I couldn't help myself. For people like myself, there are a couple tools to help you along in your quest for the ultimate (Chiefs) draft.

First there is an SBNation website called "Mocking the Draft". It's a great website to get information on specific players. The other is a site some of you may have heard of, it's called It has a fun little simulator that you can place values on team needs and run your own draft. That being said, the fun thing for me this year is that the Chiefs don't have glaring needs all over the place. We have rookies and veterans alike stepping up in places. So after the jump, I'll show you what I did in the simulator.

First of all, the simulator places the Chief draft position at 24. While I don't think we will draft that high (15-20 is my assumption), I did't change that. So then it came to choose team needs. This is how I placed the needs at this point:  NT, WR, OLB, OC, FB, QB, OG, RB


This is what the simulator gave me (all stats are for 2009):

1) Michael Floyd WR Notre Dame 6'3" 227 44/795 yards 18.1 avg 9 TD

2) Aldon Smith OLB Missouri 6'5" 260 64 tackles 19 TFL 11.5 sacks

3) Kendrick Ellis NT Hampton 6'5" 340 51 tackles 15 TFL 1.5 sacks

4) Stanley Havili FB USC 6'1" 225 21/138 rushing 6.6 AVG 22/298 catching 13.5 avg

5) Ryan Bartholomew OC Syracuse 6'2" 298 2010 Rimington award nominee

I really liked that draft.  Personally, that is way sexy to me. Just for kicks I swapped positions with the Bears and placed the pick at 17, leaving everything else the same. This is what it came up with:

1) Julio Jones WR Alabama 6'4" 220 43/596 yards 13.9 avg 4 TD

2) Von Miller OLB Texas A&M 6'3" 243 48 tackles 21.5 TFL 16.5 sacks 4 FF

3) Kendrick Ellis NT Hampton

4) Stanley Havili FB USC

5) Ryan Bartholomew OC Syracuse

Either way, I am pretty sure the Chiefs would be an improved team. Go have fun with the simulator. I know I am.
