The 2011 NFL Draft is coming within the next four months, and even though it may be too early to predict the 2011 Chiefs draft choices you can always make a big board of who you think fits the mold. In the Chiefs' playoff loss to Baltimore positions were exposed that the Chiefs need to address those include: Center, Outside linebacker, Nose tackle, Right offensive tackle, and a Wide receiver.
1. Von Miller: OLB, Texas A&M
If Von Miller somehow falls all the way to the number 21 slot in the 2011 Draft the Chiefs need to pick him up immediately. Von Miller is a beast in his Junior campaign he sacked 17 quarterbacks while taking down 11 quarterbacks his Senior season. The Chiefs could get really lucky if Von Miller goes this late in the draft especially if the Chiefs can't somehow retain Tamba Hali. But, if the Chiefs resign Tamba Hali and get Von Miller in the draft, this could be James Harrison and Lamarr Woodley version 2.0.
2. Phil Taylor: NT, Baylor
The Chiefs defensive line is in my mind one good player away from being solid, besides Glenn Dorsey the Chiefs' defensive line is in question. Phil Taylor could really add some size to the Chiefs defense, the man is 6'4 and ways 337 pounds. Taylor had a tremendous Senior bowl and reminds me a lot of Jets nose tackle Kris Jenkins. If the Chiefs are willing to go this early in the draft for a nose tackle this is my guy.
3. Stefen Wisniewski: C, Penn State
Out of all the players in the draft Stefen Wisniewski is probably the most realistic pick for the Kansas City Chiefs. Wisniewski is a Scott Pioli type of guy he reminds me a lot of Patriot center Dan Koppen a blue collar type of guy. With Casey Wiegmann at approaching age 38 bringing in a young center is very probable to happen this offseason.
4. Mike Pouncey: C/G, Florida
If Mike Pouncey is just like his brother Maurkice Pouncey I want him on the Chiefs. Mike Pouncey has tremendous size and capability, but he might be a better guard than center. Pouncey struggled with some snaps as a senior, but still displayed great blocking.
5. Titus Young: WR, Boise State
Titus Young to me is the most realistic receiver the Chiefs could get in the draft. Titus Young is one of the most consistent players in the draft and doesn't have problems dropping the ball like Julio Jones. Titus Young has incredible speed averaging 17.1 yards a catch as a senior and running a sub 4.4 40. Young reminds me exactly of Pittsburgh's Mike Wallace having similar size and speed. Drafting Titus Young this early could be questionable, but he would defiantly be a steal in the 2nd round.
