Right now I am more interested in Free Agency than the draft, after all it comes before the draft. We have some obvious needs that could see a Mizzou grad come to our Chief's as a FA. 3 of them could help our team, maybe become starters. As an old timer that used to watch training camp practices at William Jewell College, I always felt that my team was a Missouri team. St Louis still had the Cardinals back then, but having ties in the KC area I always was partial to the Chief's. Back to some help needed from FA and by possible ex MU stars.
I will start with QB Chase Daniel, who has a Super Bowl ring. Yeah, I know he is not the first choice among so many, but he might appeal to Andy Reid. Don;t have the insider knowledge to flat out dismiss Chase from consideration, but if he can back-up Drew Brees he could likely be a fine back-up here. But who knows if he get's a chance like Wilson up in Seattle and shines like a starter. Since he is an MU guy have to include him in this post.
Next up is Pig Moore who has been playing well for the Atlanta Falcons. We need a Safety, badly, and he could make a difference for our team. As a FA he is not chained to Atlanta, but I expect them to try and resign him. Think about having a young Safety that can tackle well, but also provide help to his CB's. If the new Defensive Coordinator blitzes like we all hope, then we will be needing a safety more than ever to prevent big plays that come off those blitzes. Not always a good thing when they break a big play off a blitz
TE M. Rucker was on the IR all season and is having a bad run of luck. So bad that he is likely not going to get any further chance in the pro's. That leaves Jeremy Maclin Yep, the same guy that was drafted in the first round by our coach up in Philly. He knows the system and still produces but has some medical baggage It will be interesting to see if he is given consideration by the guy who drafted him. It might be real beneficial to have a WR who knows the system around for the other receivers to ask questions. I could see him in a red and gold uniform.
I know we need another TE and ILB, but don't recall any that are FA from the college I once attended. How this team fills roster spots will go a long way in how they approach the draft. I wouldn't even attempt a mock draft this early because of the unknown of free agency. GO MIZZOU and Go Chief's!!!!!!!
