Bill Williamson: I find it a bit amusing that the consensus is that Poe will not succeed in the NFL. It’s as if the poor kid’s fate has already been sealed. Come on, folks. Had Kansas City not taken the defensive tackle from Memphis at No. 11, another team would quickly have taken him. Sure, he didn’t have great film in college. But there is no denying he is a talent. He will get supreme coaching from Romeo Crennel and Poe will be put in a position to succeed. Just because there are question marks doesn’t mean Poe has no chance to succeed. Don’t be shocked if in two years we hear what a steal he was. BW: I like him. I think he has a real chance. The fifth-round pick from Alabama was a cornerback in college but he may project as a safety in the NFL. He is a smart, heady player who stood out on a classic defense. Nick Saban’s defenders come to the NFL ready and I think we will see an impact made by this player. Yes, he lacks ideal speed, but it didn’t hurt him in the SEC and he knows how to make up for it. I know the Chiefs are tickled about this pick.
