The notion of Andy Reid selecting DeShone Kizer doesn’t seem far-fetched, at least based on one big prior decision. In 2007, the then-Philadelphia Eagles coach took Houston Cougars quarterback Kevin Kolb with the team’s first pick (No. 36 overall). Donovan McNabb was the expected starter at 31 years old, but was returning from a late-season ACL injury. Kolb was given the opportunity to learn under McNabb and A.J. Feely, the Eagles’ backup, before appearing in six games during his second season.
The Chiefs face some serious and perhaps irreparable damage if they’re involved with Romo and lose. Then they’ve publicly declared with their actions, if not their words, that they don’t think Smith is good enough, and that easily could turn into a problem in their locker room.
Kansas City brass — owner Clark Hunt, general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid — might feel Berry's health resume makes him a risky player to sign to a contract befitting one of the best (if not the best) safeties in the game.

It also turns out that Peppers himself is noted for being an "ideal fit" for the Chiefs defense. Bob Sutton’s versatile use of safeties means that a hybrid player like Peppers would be perfect for a team like Kansas City. According to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com, the Chiefs are one of a handful of teams to watch in the second round who could make a move for the Michigan product.
The biggest concern with drafting Teez Tabor, and likely why he’s projected to be a late first round pick, is that he’ll come into the NFL with his fair share of baggage during his time at Florida. Tabor was suspended one game last season due to "behavior that is not acceptable", according to Dane Brugler of CBS Sports.
