It is time to evaluate how well Reid and Dorsey handled the draft. I cannot give them an "A". To earn an "A", a team must be proactive in the draft. The team must manipulate the draft so as to maximize acquisition of players suitable to the team's needs. That means trading picks to move up or down in the draft order. Three teams who earned "A"'s in this draft were the Packers, the Forty-Niners, and the Eagles. These teams strategically moved up and/or down with relative ease, procuring players they were enamored of. Our Chiefs altered their draft position not one time. Hence, no "A" in the draft for our guys.
To earn a "B" in the draft, a team must attend to business first and foremost. Readily discernible needs should be addressed first, before upgrading positions already adequately manned. In this year's draft, Nico Johnson was a good pick. We needed an ILB. Knile Davis wasn't a good pick. An apparent upgrade, yes, but not a sensible pick, when two obvious needs, ILB and a Safety, had yet to be addressed. I can't say too much about taking a fullback before a DE/OLB because they were chosen so close together. As for the selection of a TE with our second overall pick, I can honestly say that I had Kelce on my radar screen, and was hoping to see him land on our roster, but not before an ILB or safety. Still, no "B" for the Chiefs..."C+" at best.
So, Chefs' fans, there it is. Grasp your life by the horns and ride it...play golf, take a trip, get a little amorous with the missus...until mid-July, when camp starts. Then it's back to business-as-usual, the Chiefs!
