Chiefs Are Becoming The Mystery Team In The Top Five Of The Draft

Depending on who you ask, the top four picks in the NFL draft seem to be set.

"I do think the first four are pretty much set," ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper said according to the Kansas City Star.

The Rams appear to be settling on Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford, despite saying publicly they haven't made a decision.

"The only issue there is who does Detroit take at two because that obviously impacts Tampa," Kiper said. "The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will just sit there and take whatever player is left. That’s usually a good spot to be in. Let the other team make the call on who they want."

Then there's the Redskins who, if I had to bet, would be taking an offensive line now that QB Donovan McNabb has been secured.

That leaves the Chiefs, who have everyone guessing at this point. A NFL consultant who has worked with GM Scott Pioli in the past suggests a "safe" pick like an offensive lineman. Kiper, and others, continue to beat the drum for Tennessee S Eric Berry.

"Then it’s Kansas City. You hear Bryan Bulaga, you hear Trent Williams. I still go with the safety, Eric Berry. They don’t have anything resembling a big-time safety, a free safety. So, to me, Berry would be fitting in very well there."

As usual, the Chiefs are the secretive ones.
