30 Years of Chiefs 1st Round Draft History

Why 30 years? I had to go back 27 years to find a top 10 pick on offense. 1986 OT @ #7.

There were two first round draft picks in 2008. One defense(#5-Dorsey), one offense(#15-Albert). Zero first round picks in 2004. The #30 that year was traded for a 2nd(Jr. Savii), a 4th(Samie Parker) & a 5th(?). Edit: Two 1st round picks in 1984 #5-Maas defense & #21-Alt.

There were two Carl Peterson first round trades for QBs over that time period. The #12 traded for Trent Green & a 5th rounder(Derrick Blaylock). The #18 for Joe Montana, safety David Whitmore & a 3rd rounder.

The 31 picks:

Defense-13

#11-D.Poe...#5-E.Berry...#3-T.Jackson...#5-G.Dorsey...#20-T.Hali...#15-D.Johnson...#6-R.Sims...#28-J.Woods...#20-D.Carter...#13-P.Snow...#4-D.Thomas...#2-N.Smith...#5-B.Maas

Offense-18

#26-J.Baldwin...#15-B.Albert...#23-D.Bowe...#27-L.Johnson....#12-Trent Green(T)...#21-S.Morris...#14-J.Tait...#27-V.Riley...#13-T.Gonzalez...#31-T.Jenkins...#25-G.Hill...#18-J.Montana(T)...#21-H.Williams...#19-P.Palmer...#7-B.Jozwiak...#15-E.Horton...#21-J.Alt...#7-T.Blackledge

17 top #15 picks(10-defense 7-offense)

-9 of those 17 were top #10 picks(7-defense 2-offense)

---6 of those 9 were top #5 picks(all 6 defensive picks)

With the lean towards offense, the Chiefs will have to dedicate more top 1st rounders to the offense.

Edit: Todd Blackledge @ #7 in 1983. I had counted Maas & Alt as seperate years
