Okay everyone another week is upon us and all the franchise tags have been placed. We now know that Bowe is our franchised player and that Carr is likely gone with Routt taking his place as the RCB. The Following will be my mock and a list of links to use when building your own mock. Thanks everyone and make sure to REC this post to keep it on the front page!
As get ready for the upcoming draft we must first consider a possible trade down and what free agents we should target. I used this mocking the draft link for our first 3 rounds and then cbs sports for the rest of the draft.
With those things mentioned lets get to my offseason scenario.
Next our Free Agency signings: Peyton Manning, 3 years incentive based (Starter at QB); BenJarvus Green-Ellis 2 year, 5 million guaranteed (Depth and change of pace for Charles); Paul Soliai, 4 years 16 million guaranteed with potential of 32 million over course of contract(NT and run stuffer, only a two down player)
Now trades I believe we should make in the upcoming draft:
The Kansas City Chiefs trade pick 11 to Cincinatti for pick 21 in the first round and their second round pick this year. Along with a 2nd round pick next season.
The Kansas City Chiefs trade Glenn Dorsey and our 5th round pick for their 3rd round pick in 2012 and a conditional 2nd / 3rd round pick in 2013 based on performance / playing time to the Atlanta Falcons.
And Now the Draft:
Round 1, Pick 21: The Kansas City Chiefs select Fletcher Cox, DE, Miss St
When I watch this kid play i see a quick first step and a relentless motor. Add to that measurables and a frame that could hold more strength and weight in his lower half. Should be able to step in rotationally with Gordon to replace Dorsey and to pass the rusher next to Bailey in sub packages. A very high ceiling on this player due to his athletic ability and size.
Round 2 pick 12: The Kansas City Chiefs select Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin
A very powerful lineman that show the athleticism to pull when needed but really excels driving his man in the running game. Has very good technique and very good size enabling him to start almost immediately. Should challenge Lilja from day one and help in short yardage situations.
Round 2, Pick 21: The Kansas City Chiefs select Bobby Massie, OT, Mississippi
A gifted tackle athletically that has very good strength, length, and quickness. Will need to refine his technique a bit and live up to his potential but a solid competitor for Richardson. The should push each other with the loser being the swing tackle.
Round 3, pick 11: The Kansas City Chiefs select Ladarius Green, TE, LA - Lafayette
You could call this guy a TE or a WR and you wouldn't be wrong in either assessment. Great size and frame to build on and he can be moved around to create mismatches for opposing defenses. Shows great body control in the air and has a very high ceiling.
Round 3, pick 22: The Kansas City Chiefs select Robert Turbin, RB, Utah St
The Chiefs would have The Law Firm as a change of pace but if Charles goes down they lose a playmaker at RB. Turbin looks to have the ability to be a feature back in the NFL and provides quality depth and potential at RB.
Round 4, pick 12: The Kansas City Chiefs select Janzen Jackson, S, McNeese St
An immensely talented safety that falls from the first or second round to the fourth round because of his past off the field issues. He was the safety next to EB in college and Berry has taken him under his wing to try and get him back on track. A little bit of a gamble but this kid has real talent and real skills.
Round 6, pick 12: The Kansas City Chiefs select Sean Richardson, SS, Vandy
A big athletic safety that takes Sabby’s place and contributes on special teams and adds to depth. Developmental player that has all the measurables.
Round 7, pick 11: The Kansas City Chiefs select: Ron Brooks, CB, LSU
A developmental corner that has very good measurables and is from a high level of competition. Should contribute immediately on special teams and let Emmitt Thomas do work.
Round 7, pick 31: The Kansas City Chiefs select: James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma
A developmental TE that has very good measurables and could be a solid contributor on special teams and as a third tight end.
