OK, we've been talking for months now about who the Chiefs might draft. I thought I'd put some odds on the possibles and see what the Pride faithful think. These odds are based on whether a player MIGHT be available, and then the chances of "The Don" actually making the call. They have also changed (in my mind, at least) from when the FA period started. Debate away kids!
3-1 Eric Berry - While he's the consensus number one among many at this site, recent signs indicate he might not even be here at the pick. He seems like this year's version of Aaron Curry... there's a general consensus that he's the man for the job. But will Pioli agree? I say, unfortunately, no.
7-2 Trade the pick - I think that this is the way I want things to go. So many needs... so many quality players this year. If both QB's are on the board (or even one that a team covets), I think this result has a real shot.
5-1 Russell Okung - Odds would have been a little lower were it not for the FA moves of the last two weeks. Still, you can never have enough quality O Linemen.
7-1 Rolando McClain - Man, do we need a couple of Inside Linebackers. To hear some, McClain's stock is falling... but I can't tell if it's all just the smoke of draft season wafting over us.
8-1 Dan Williams - NT is an area of extreme need. Williams seems to be the best of a not too deep bunch. Just the kind of reach we saw last year with TJ
10-1 Joe Haden - CB is a real sleeper here. Is Brandon Carr the player who we want starting? This is just the type of thing that Pioli would do... pick the guy that we least expect. Speaking of which, I'll give you a couple of 15-1's:
15-1 Dez Bryant - Kind of a BPA pick. I think he's the best WR in the draft (no offense to Golden Tate).
15-1 Jimmy Claussen - Just for grins.
4-5 NO ONE ON THIS LIST - Because it's Pioli. And by the time you know what the Don is thinking... it's too late.
