McShay and Kiper New Mock Drafts

2

I believe these are the two players that both have picked for the Chiefs most often. I would be happy with Kuechly, but I think we can get a suitable backup RB in free agency instead of Richardson. You can't argue, though, by picking him we would have the best 1-2 punch in the NFL. Offensive line is the key, though, and I wish we could have a shot at Reiff. McShay: Kansas City Chiefs Trent Richardson*, RB, Alabama This is a best-athlete-available pick. The Chiefs have bigger holes along the interior offensive line and at nose tackle, but even though running back is a low priority in this scenario they can't pass on the chance to get one of the elite players on the board at No. 11 overall. Should they look elsewhere, Memphis DT Dontari Poe would be an option with his ability to shore up the defensive front. Kiper: Kansas City Chiefs * Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College Kuechly came to Indy with concerns about his size. But he weighed in at over 240 pounds, easing some of those concerns, and then shined in workouts, proving the added bulk won't slow him down; a classic case where a guy answers the big questions and solidifies his stock. Romeo Crennel needs linebackers with great instincts who can be physical in the run game, make stops and also get into the backfield when asked. Kuechly is simply a machine, a prototype for what you want in an interior linebacker. I can see the Chiefs looking for a nose tackle, so if Poe is around, that pick makes sense as well.
