The Chiefs didn't receive much fanfare for their 2009 draft. It was generally characterized as boring. The 2010 class, however, is drawing some nice reviews.

Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News released his grades of the 2010 draft. Gosselin is largely considered among the best in the draft business. NFL teams value his opinion. He is very good.

So how did he grade the Chiefs 2010 draft class?

A+

The Chiefs drafted the NFL defensive rookie of the year in Berry – and a slew of other good players. Arenas was the best returner in the draft, and McCluster will give the AFC matchup problems at both running back and receiver.

Thanks to NJ_Chief and Chiefs190 for pointing this out.

burntorangehorn also posted a story about Gosselin's first and second mock drafts.

Mike Mayock of NFL Network has also praised this draft class. They are getting very good reviews.

So what was the collective pulse from AP? Here are the results of the our first four approval polls.
