Ok, so besides about arguing about the CBA there isn’t a whole lot to talk about. A recent poster recently enthusiastically suggested trading Tamba Hali, as he has great value and would benefit our team in the long run. Forgive me, this post is a bit of a farse, and definitely not something I recommend, but I wanted to follow this train of thought, of dumping talent for the future.
I am listing the players and what trade value they could potentially be worth. Now granted, it is not likely we could trade these players for the picks I have mentioned, but simply what they would be worth (in my opinion) for a trade. Tamba Hali has been franchised, and from my understanding it would take a 1st and a 3rd to pull him off our roster. Despite being an awesome talent, I would guess no one would be willing to part with that much for Tamba. So for speculation, let’s just say we can find a trade partner for him, and for that matter ALL of the talent on our team. Surely, this would set us up in the future with an “AMAZING” team, following the train of thought from the AP poster wanting to send Tamba packing.
Brandon Flowers: 2012 1st round pick / 2012 4th round pick
Tamba Hali: 2012 1st round pick / 2012 3rd round pick
Brandon Carr: 2012 1st round pick
Derrick Johnson 2012 1st round pick
Eric Berry 2012 1st round pick
Tyson Jackson 2012 2nd round pick
Matt Cassell: 2012 1st round pick / 2012 4th round pick
Jamaal Charles: 2012 1st round pick / 2012 2nd round pick
Dwayne Bowe: 2012 1st round pick / 2012 4th round pick
Dexter McCluster: 2012 2nd round pick
Jonathan Baldwin: 2012 2nd round pick
So, assuming we could pull this off, we would have ten 1st round picks in next years draft, along with five 2nd round picks, and three 3rd and four 4th rounders . Hopefully the CBA would abolish the present rookie pay scale, or the Chiefs would bankrupt after the commencement of player salaries in spring. So assuming this works out, we have quite the building year.
Now let us look at the 2012 NFL draft. I am going to randomly disperse the picks, giving the Chiefs every third pick in the 1st round. For instance the Chiefs, “in the 2012 NFL Draft” would have the 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th, 15th, 18th, 21st, 24th, 27th, and 30th picks in the first rounds. So for my mock draft in the first round, here we go. Remember that we will not have any of our current players when considering my selections. Additionally I have no solid idea of whqat our players trade value really is so please just roll with the value I have assigned them.
With the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft the Oakland Raiders trade the pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for three 2nd round picks. The Chiefs select: Andrew Luck QB Standford (Andrew will probably beat out Cassell for Pro Bowl in 2012)
With the third pick in the 2012 NFL draft, The Kansas City Chiefs Select: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina (Who needs Dwayne Bowe)
With the sixth pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Matt Barkley, QB, USC (His trade value will be huge for the future of the Chiefs)
With the ninth pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State (He will have a great mentor in 2nd year player Jerell Powe)
With the twelfth pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: D’Andre “Dre” Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
With the 15th pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Jared Crick, DT, Nebraska (We love to pick D-lineman in the first round, in fact we have picked 2 in our last four drafts. We could match that number in the first day of the 2012 draft!
With the 18th pick in the NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Zach Brown, OLB, North Carolina ( Well coming back to what started this post, he should have a fine tutor to starting OLB Gabe Miller)
With the 21st pick in the NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia Brandon Flowers had so much value, and look what is under the Christmas tree today!)
With the 24th pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Ray-Ray Armstrong, safety, Miami (No, he isn’t Eric Berry, but it’s for the betterment of the team!)
With the 27th pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers (This player was drafted two spots behind where Jonathan Baldwin was drafted last year. And all they had to give up was Jonathan Baldwin!)
With the 30th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Darius Joyner,
Looking at a team with so many new draft picks is kind of exciting, but then again, I really kind of like the odds of our current team we have now better. So in my estimation, lets keep the talent on board. Especially Tamba Hali.
This post has been a retort to a post listed by another AP user. I would like to say that this is no way meant to be a mockery of this user’s post but a farse created through the delirium of not having anything football to talk about. There is definitely merit to the idea of trading certain players while their value is high. This is not meant to be offensive in anyway to the previous poster.
