Hello Arrowhead Pride. We at Niners Nation are finally having a community mock draft, and I managed to claim representation of the Chiefs prior to anyone else. The mock is scheduled to take place this Saturday afternoon, and will cover only the first two rounds. As such, I presume that no trading will be allowed. After the jump, I will list some players that I believe may be good selections for your team in rounds one and two.
Round One (Pick #21):
1. Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
2. Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
3. Muhammad Wilkerson, DE, Temple
4. Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
5. Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor
6. Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA
7. Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia
Round Two (Pick #55):
1. Titus Young, WR, Boise State
2. Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
3. Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh
4. Rodney Hudson, C, Florida State
5. Stefen Wisniewski, C, Wisconsin
6. Jerrel Powe, NT, Ole Miss
7. Sam Acho, DE/OLB, Texas
I was hoping that some discussion could take place, the ultimate goal of which would be to induce an order on these names. The numbers in front of the names are just there to save you some typing, not to indicate any sort of order that I may have in mind. I noticed a lot of these names over in Bajah07's excellent "One Stop Mock Talk" thread, so the lists shouldn't be too ridiculously out-of-touch. Please provide your opinion on what the proper order should be, as well as any other players that may be considered if your preferred players were taken. Also, are there any players who will almost definitely be gone that would have to be considered a near-consensus pick if they fell? Perhaps a guy like Julio Jones, or Marcell Dareus?
I'd like to thank you all in advance for any responses provided, as well as congratulate the team for winning the AFC West this past season. Hopefully you all can win it again next season while embarrassing the Chargers and Broncos twice each.
