Hello Arrowhead Pride readers.
I am picking for the Chiefs in the second round of the Behind the Steel Curtain mock draft, and I was hoping to get some input from the Chiefs experts on the players that I'm thinking of going with on this pick.
In this mock, the first round pick for KC was Martez Wilson. If you hate that pick, don't blame me, I was not the one choosing for them in the first round of the mock. But, at this point, there is only one more pick before I'm on the clock, and here are the players in my mini board:
- Stephen Paea DT
- Randall Cobb WR
- Ras-I Dowling CB
- Kenrick Ellis NT
Based my research (here and elsewhere), it looks like the Chiefs biggest needs are improvements in pass offense, pass defense, and rush defense, in that order.
From what I've been able to gather, Paea is the consensus best player available at this point, but if he's taken, Ellis may be a good NT to take instead. However, Cobb would appear to fill a bigger need, and from what I've seen, he shouldn't be a reach here. Originally, I was thinking that Dowling should be off the board at this pick due to his injury concerns, but I've recently learned that he performed pretty well in his pro day (running a 4.36 40, IIRC).
Anyway, any thoughts you could give me on which you all believe would be the best pick in this scenario would be appreciated.
