We think we KNOW the teams needs, but the Primary need is ?

While we have been bandying our opinions around quite a bit here at Arrowhead Pride on what the Chief's should do with the twenty-first pick, we are far from anything like a consensus. I would like to ask YOU to help me be educated to why your pick is better than anyone else. Just to let you know I have eliminated trades of the pick we have at 21. Also any position is fair game, all I ask is that you back your opinion up with some logic. Why do I want to do this as I have already made my choice clear? I saw an opinion yesterday that was "spot on" which got me thinking I could be misguided with the choice I wanted and, to remain fair-minded I felt the need to open myself up to other possibilities.  Now I am sure some of you want to debate the qualities of 1 player over another, but, I would rather keep the conversation tied into a specific position. Still here, then let's take a jump.


I'll start by re-releasing my choice. I think the team would benefit best by drafting a Tackle to take over for Barry Richardson. He has shown an ability to run block but is horrible in pass pro. This really limits the offense in my opinion. By having to hold a TE or RB in to help out the RT we lose by not having a another man in the pass pattern. This limits the effectiveness of the offense because the Defense get's to hang an extra DB in coverage thereby limiting our receivers ability to get open and makes it difficult to get deep. However, the biggest advantage is that our QB, Matt Cassel, isn't getting pounded on a regular basis. Protecting the corners of the Offensive Line also gives the Interior Lineman the ability to gang up on the interior rush of the D. For me protecting our QB is imperative and I can see the added benefits he gets by having more time to throw and for the players out in the pattern to get open.

So what say YOU? The other needs are obvious- OLB,WR, or C seems to be what most are looking at. Please help me understand why I should maybe give another think to these other positions. Go Chief's!!
