Evaluating Pioli's Draft Picks

Due to the fact that we don't really know how successful any of the 2011 draft picks are, I decided to leave them out and only include the 2009 and 2010 draft picks.


Tyson Jackson DE--Chiefs' starting DE.  Moderately successful.

Alex Magee DT--No longer a member of an NFL roster.

Donald Washington CB--Chiefs 3rd string Strong Safety.  Has only 52 total tackles in his NFL career.  0 interceptions.  0 passes defended.

Colin Brown OL--Member of the Buffalo Bills.  Has never started an NFL game.

Quinten Lawrence WR--Member of the Chiefs' practice squad.  Has started one NFL game.

Javarris Williams RB--Member of the Houston Texans.  6 career rushing attempts for a total of 6 rushing yards.

Jake O'Connell TE--Chiefs' 3rd string TE.  12 career receptions for 90 yards.

Ryan Succop K--Chiefs' starting Kicker.  81.7% FG Percentage.

2009 Draft Pick Success Rating: 2/8



Eric Berry SS--Starter from day one.  Great pick.

Dexter McCluster RB--Has been disappointing since his 94 yard punt return for a TD on Monday night against the Chargers.  Moderately successful.

Javier Arenas CB--High punt return average, but has 0 returns for TDs.  Can't see him being a starting CB for anyone in the NFL in his career.  Hard to say, but we'll call him successful.

Jon Asamoah OG--Has started every game of the 2011 season and looked great.  Great pick.

Tony Moeaki TE--Looked good last year, and was hoping to improve with a successful sophomore season before suffering a season-ending injury in the Pre-Season.  Good pick.

Kendrick Lewis FS--Chiefs' starting Free Safety.  3 interceptions last year, and 3 interceptions so far this year.  Looks much better when Berry's playing, as opposed to McGraw.  Decent pick.

Cameron Sheffield OLB--Missed all of last season, plays some this year.  Looks decent, but due to the fact I've counted McCluster, Arenas, and Lewis as successful, we'll call him unsuccessful so far.

2010 Draft Pick Success Rate: 6/7


Total Success Rate: 8/15
