Later Round Prospects Reid and Dorsey Should Be Targeting

I have been thinking about where this team might go later in the draft because as it sits right now we don't have a second round pick ( I think we will end up getting one through a trade that is another post) So we need to be looking for guys we can get in round 3 and beyond who can come in and contribute right away. I have done some extensive research to come up with this list of guys who could end up falling in the draft who could potentially be very productive pros in the NFL. So here we go

Lets start with the defense

Marcus Smith (Louisville)

OLB: Projected as a 3-4 right outside linebacker.

Height: 6'3

Weight: 258 LBS

Projected Round: 3-4

Quick first step, Athletic and agile, Flashes a good spin move. Smith was a high school quarterback turned pass rusher who broke out with 14.5 sacks in his senior season. (1.12 sacks-per-game average led the nation) should be able to contribute on passing down early and has high starter potential when his game becomes more well rounded. I think this guy could come in and learn from Houston and Hali and eventually take over for Hali next season because I don't believe that Hali will be back after this season.

Dominique Easley (Florida)

DT/ DE

Height: 6'2

Weight: 280 LBS

Projected Round: 4-5

Explodes off the snap, Relentless and energetic, Has played inside and outside, excellent pursuit and a team captain. He shows the ability to disrupt the backfield and pressure the quarterback. Fits best in an aggressive scheme in which he could use his quickness to slant, stunt and shoot gaps. I really like this kid to potentially come in and be that rush DE we could be looking for in this defense he has had some injury history which is really hurting his draft stock but he has first round talent but is going to get pushed into the later rounds because of medical.

Zach Moore (Concordia) (MN)

DE

Height: 6'6

Weight: 278 LBS

Projected Round: 6-7 (Potential undrafted free agent)

He is athletic and flexible and has rare leaping ability for his size, Averaged a sack per game in college, has experience in both a 4-3 and 3-4 fronts. Two-time captain.Moore is a raw physically gifted, division II standout (much like Catapano last season) with untapped potential given his size, length and movement skills. I am not convinced that Catapano is going to be able to transition into the NFL as a DE he may need to make a move to OLB at some point he gets ate up by NFL offensive tackles and guards we could potentially find a steal in the late rounds with Moore, Dorsey knows to look in every place possible for talent and Moore is no exception I can almost guarantee that Dorsey knows about this kid.

Stanley Jean- Baptiste (Nebraska)

CB

Height: 6'2

Weight: 215 LBS

Projected Round: 4-5

21 Pass breakups and 6 INT's in 17 starts at Nebraska, Jean- Baptiste is a receiver turner corner in a safeties body. Very intriguing ball skills, strength and upside, though he lacks elite athletic ability and doesn't always play to his size. Very good corner prospect for teams running press man or cover 2. I really like this kid and think he could take over for Sean Smith if he doesn't end up resigning with us

Brock Vereen (Minnesota)

FS

Height: 5'11

Weight: 199 LBS

Projected Round: 5-6

Vereen is actually projected by NFL.com to go in the 3-4 range but multiple other site I have seen have him projected in the 5-6 range and I am not sure if it is because of his size or what but this kid could end up being one of the steals of the draft.

Very good athlete with fluid movement and very good range. Can carry receivers in man coverage with little wasted movement in transition on speed turns. Vereen is a rangy free safety with the athletic ability and cover skill desired on the back end.

Sorry guys no really good videos on this kid.

Brandon Coleman (Rutgers)

WR

Height: 6'5

Weight: 220 LBS

Projected Round: 3-4

Long arms enable him to slap and swim away from jams, Can post up smaller defensive backs and out jump almost anyone that is put on him. Has some playmaking ability he averaged 22 yards per catch and he scored on 1 out of every 5 catches over 3 seasons. Big, Tall, Talented West Coast receiver whose sheer size make him effective outside the numbers.

Everyone is talking about Kelvin Benjamin and I am not sure why Coleman isn't in the same conversation he is an explosive wide receiver with good speed for his size and could elevate himself with a good combine showing but for the Chiefs sake I hope he does fall into the 3rd or 4th round because we could be getting a very productive player with some really good size who could complement both Bowe and whoever ends up being our slot receiver.

Jeff Janis (Saginaw Valley St.)

WR

Height: 6'2

Weight: 212 LBS

Projected Round: 4-5

Good leaping ability, accelerates into routes very quickly and can separate vertically and uncover underneath working short to intermediate zones. This guy had really good production in 12 games played this past season he had 6, 100 yard games 1, 200 yard game and 1, 300 yard game. He also had 14 TD's and 3 games where he had over 10+ receptions. He is a small school prospect and he is going to need to prove he can play with stiffer competition I think he can and I think he could be a steal late in the draft.

There you go Chiefs fans there are some guys on this list that I think could really make a difference for this team going into next season. I will be posting another write up about where I think Dorsey will get that much needed 2nd round pick and how our draft may turn out with us drafting some of the guys on this list let me know what you all think about some of these guys that I have put on here.
