Whitlock Calls For Chiefs To Take Dez Bryant

Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star has his vote in for the Chiefs 5th overall pick and it is....

Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant.

It's all about finding that playmaker the Chiefs have lacked for years.

"In nearly two decades of covering Chiefs football," he writes, "I've yet to see the team field an in-his-prime, big-time receiver. They've had tight end Tony Gonzalez, quarterback Trent Green, running backs Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson, linemen Willie Roaf, Will Shields and Brian Waters.

"Their best receiver? A washed-up Andre Rison."

He calls Bryant a "clear-cut top five pick" and would be "disappointed" if the Chiefs went the safe route like an offensive lineman.

No one denies Bryant's talent but Whitlock argues the off-the-field stuff would be of no consequence.

"As for Bryant’s emotional and maturity issues? Well, we’ve heard all offseason the Chiefs have the best coaching staff money can buy. Let Haley, Weis and Romeo Crennel earn all those Clark Hunt millions. This staff is experienced and highly decorated. Bill Parcells handled Lawrence Taylor. Bill Belichick has handled Moss. Parcells and Belichick schooled damn near everyone of any consequence on the Chiefs’ coaching and executive staff."

Maybe Matt Conner's prediction wasn't so far off.
