Pre John Dorsey decision week. John has claimed that on April 21st he will make the decision along with Andy Reid on the best pick for the Chiefs overall #1 selection in this years draft. This will seal Branden Albert's long term future in Kansas City one way or the other.
The majority of Arrowhead Pride feel no trade is in the offing for the Chiefs 1st round selection. John Dorsey in free Agency this year has brought in players to either be starters/backups for the Chiefs or practice fodder for camp. I think either way the Chiefs have a load of talented players to sift through even before we add the drafted and un-drafted players to come in the next two weeks.
So a Mock with no trades trying to create a certain future for where the Chiefs might go.
#1 Eric Fisher - Offensive Tackle Central Michigan
Discussed to death, but the perfect Tackle prospect for the Chiefs whether Albert is on the team or not.
#63 Johnathan Jenkins - Nose Tackle Georgia
One of those prospects is John Jenkins, a 6’4", 359 lb. Defensive Tackle out of Georgia. He is rated 31st overall and 6th among 218 DT’s across the nation. Jenkins is expected to be selected in the late 1st-early 3nd round in April’s Draft.
What could we do with this mountain of a man? Stick him on the Nose in rotation with Dontari Poe or rotate all four Defensive Tackles/Ends with Mike Devito and Tyson Jackson. We need to remember that Jackson is on a one year deal.
#96 Brian Schwenke - Center California
Brian Schwenke is not an undersized Center candidate at 6'3 and 314 lbs.
Schwenke played in 48 of Cal's 50 possible games during his career, starting in 36 games. His first three years he was a Guard exclusively, and played it really well. Over the spring, however, he made the switch to Center, and played it even better. He was named to the First Team All-Pac 12 by the league's coaches. All told he made 16 starts at Left Guard, 12 games at Center, and 8 at Right Guard, so he easily can play any position on the interior of the Offensive Line.
Lotsa Beef for 3 picks.
#99 Kiko Alonso - Inside Linebacker Oregon
Kiko Alonso is a linebacker prospect with incalculable potential. He can affect the game in a variety of ways, whether it’s in run fits, in blitz packages, or in pass coverage. He pairs his impressive natural athleticism with a hunger for the football that makes him a to-the-whistle player every snap.
#134 Markus Wheaton - Wide Receiver Oregon State
Jeebus! More Pac-12 ballers. Markus is projected to play Slot wide receiver but maybe, just maybe he is that complimentary speed threat opposite Dwayne Bowe. He has been compared to Marvin Harrison. He likes that.
#170 Landry Jones - Quarterback Oklahoma
A former 1st round Quarterback prospect, he falls all the way to the 6th round. A developmental QB or a Camp arm to push Ricky. Who knows?
#204 Quanterus Smith - Outside Linebacker Western Kentucky
A talented Rush Linebacker who falls to the 6th due to injury. Recovering from an ACL injury he will be a late flyer on a backup for Tamba Hali.
Smith was a four year player, getting snaps in each game his first three seasons, starting in 18 games over that stretch. He accumulated 97 tackles, including 11.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss in those three seasons, which are nice numbers but won't get you noticed as easily at a small school. As a senior, however, he burst onto the scene, leading the country in sacks through 10 games with 12.5, regularly causing havoc in the backfield. Then against Louisiana-Lafayette, his season ended prematurely when he tore an ACL, leaving him unable to add to his mighty impressive sack total.
#207 Duke Williams - Safety Nevada
A solid player to add to the competition in the Defensive secondary.
Nice writeup. It seems as a last resort of the Defense a solid playmaker. 68 3rd down stops and 5 4th down stops.
I think this possible draft hit every level of the Kansas City Chiefs team. It allows flexibility on the Lines, adds a pair of playmakers in Wheaton and Alonso, and some talented depth in Smith, Jones and Williams.
