For a while now, people here have been suggesting heavily that the Chiefs take an OLB early like Kindle, Hughes, or Weatherspoon. I;ve been a bit puzzled by this because we're fine at OLB, but have a gaping hole at ILB. Kindle falling to us in the second would be hard to pass up, but it really isn't a position of need. I was thinking that if I'm the GM and Kindle is there, I would have to pass on him and take Brandon Spikes, Terrance Cody, Nate Allen, Golden Tate, someone who really fills a hole in the team. But I just recalled something I read way back when we picked up Mike Vrabel, which is that he could play inside or out. We of course play him at OLB, but if we could nab Kindle, could Vrabel be moved inside? I've read that he can do it, but I'm really not sure how good he is at it. I'm confident in his ability to come up and play the run, but his coverage ability is fairly weak. We could run some almost stunt like defensive plays where Kindle drops back into coverage from the outside and Vrable hits the edge from the inside. I'm just thinking out loud(in text) here, but what do you think of that?
