Best and Worst Draft Marriages

Best 2. Dontari Poe, NT, Kansas City: Critics have knocked Poe as a combine workout wonder, but a player who didn't dominate in college and routinely took plays off. Here's what they need to recognize: Poe stands 6-foot-3, weighs 346 pounds and has freakish athletic ability. That's exactly the kind of presence the Chiefs need in the middle of their defensive line, especially because they've been looking for such a player ever since installing the 3-4 scheme three seasons ago. Skeptics also should understand that Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel is as good as it gets when it comes to coaching up defensive players -- Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson have become Pro Bowlers since his arrival as a defensive coordinator in 2010. Also, massive interior line prospects routinely face criticism for their work ethic (Baltimore's Haloti Ngata, the game's best defensive tackle, heard similar complaints about his game coming into the league). Look, the Chiefs don't need Poe to be a miracle worker. If he commands double-teams and makes life easier on everybody around him, the Chiefs could have one of the league's best defenses this fall.
