I see NT as your biggest need, but Poe looked so bad at Memphis that I can't see him at all for all the flashing lights that spell out BUST. Against some of the weakest competition in the FBS he had very little production. I think NT is a spot that can be addressed in the 3rd round and you still get the best prospect available, since Poe is purely a workout warrior.
I see a lot of mocks with you taking DeCastro or Keuchly, but guards don't go that high and I see LB as the strength of your team.
I'm planning to try and trade down, maybe get both of the Bengals picks so I can get you Stephon Gilmore & Devon Still, but I wanted to see what you guys are talking about first.
There's still WRs like Kendall Wright, but he's Wes Welker/Steve Smith sized. Not too likely we get another one of those guys. Riley Rieff is a pretty solid tackle prospect, and you can never have too many of those. Similarly we have a pass rush specialist available in Courtney Upshaw that has terrorized QBs in a very tough conference.
In our mock the typical guys are already gone. Luck, Griffin, Kalil, Blackmon, & Claiborne, plus Melvin Ingram & Quentin Coples. There are 3 more picks to be made before we're up, so the poll contains a short list of who's available right now.
So, Chiefs fans, who's the pick?
What do you want to do with your first round pick?
Trent Richardson! RBs still matter!! (22 votes)

Dontari Poe! Ryan Sims was a fluke! (3 votes)
Kendall Wright! Dwarfs can be WRs too! (1 vote)
Riley Rieff (1 vote)
Trade down, we don't have a top 15 need and can build more effectively with more picks (124 votes)
