With GM John Dorsey on board, there are ties between the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers. Dorsey, of course, was in Green Bay for over 20 years before coming to Kansas City.
I have noticed through tracking the KC Chiefs 2014 draft interests that the Packers are often connected to the same player. With Dorsey having learned under Packers GM Ted Thompson, it's reasonable to suspect that the list of best available players between the Packers and Chiefs are similar because they're picking so close to each other in the draft.
The Packers pick No. 21 while the Chiefs are two picks later at No. 23. This brings up an interesting dynamic as pointed out by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Dynamic to watch: #Packers pick 21, #Chiefs pick 23. Same draft philosophy, best player available will be similar. Will KC try to jump GB?— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 5, 2014
I'm sure there are scenarios where Chiefs fans would approve of a trade up but that's not on anyone's mind right now. Any trade talk has been centered around the Chiefs trading back, not up. Besides, the Chiefs don't have much draft capital to move up with just six total picks this year. Moving up from No. 23 to No. 20 would likely require the Chiefs third or fourth round pick, which I'm guessing Dorsey doesn't want to part with.
While it is an interesting dynamic, I'm not too interested in talking about the Chiefs moving up to best the Packers.
