7 Round Chiefs Mock Draft 3.0

A lot has changed since the last Chiefs mock draft, Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel have been acquired for the 34th pick in the draft. Which alters the Chiefs plans early in the draft, no longer will Matt Stafford or Mark Sanchez be on Scott Pioli’s mind with the third pick. In addition the Brian Waters has asked for his release and the Chiefs may need to go heavier than expected on the offensive line.

Round 1 Pick # 3:
Aaron Curry LB Wake Forest

Curry has the size and speed to play either inside or outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense, but after his combine performance he may have performed his way into the either of the top two selections and out of the Chiefs reach. Bottom line if Curry is available at # 3 he is a Chief.

Round 2 Pick # 2:
Traded to New England for Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel.

Round 3 Pick # 3:
Sammie Lee Hill DT Stillman

As it becomes more and more evident the Chiefs are switching to a 3-4 defense the need for a nose tackle becomes a bigger issue for the Chiefs. Sammie Lee Hill has been consistently moving up draft boards and had a combine that solidified his rising stock, the third round may be a bit of a reach but this is not a nose tackle deep draft.

Round 4 Pick # 2:
Xavier Fulton OT Illinois

At 6-5 300 pounds Fulton has the ideal size for a tackle and second round athletic ability but has trouble with some of the more complex blitzes. The Chiefs would like to address offensive line much earlier in the draft but with the loss of their second round pick Fulton becomes the best option.

Round 5 Pick # 3:
Frantz Joseph ILB Florida Atlantic

Last year middle linebacker was the weakest position on the team this season the Chiefs will need two starting inside linebackers. Joseph is a tackling machine and should do nicely on special teams until he works his way into the lineup. The Chiefs will still need to address MLB in free agency.

Round 6 Pick # 2:
T.J. Lang OG Eastern Michigan

Even before Brian Waters requested his trade, depth on the offensive line was a issue for the Chiefs now it is a serious priority. Lang brings a physicality and toughness to the offensive line the Chiefs have been lacking for a long time.

Round 7 Pick # 3:
Johnny Knox WR Abilene Christian

Drafting a receiver always seems to be the one position with the biggest bust potential. Think Mike Williams, Charles Rogers, Peter Warrick and Troy Williamson. Knox ran a 4.34 at the combine and is a absolute burner , Knox is worth a flyer at this point in the draft.

    What about Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji??? This guy has a great motor and it’s my belief that he would be a solid addition to a defensive line that could use all the help it could get. Defence wins championships. Everyone knows that. Really good nose tackles are few and far between. If Scott Poili is, who we’ve been led to believe he is, then he is going to go back to basics, and improve that D-line. Because it all starts up front. On both sides of the ball. Don’t ge me wrong, Curry is a freak, but don’t look for the Chiefs to really consider him. Not when a franchise nose tackle is out there. This years draft is full of LB! It’s just better to get the help upfront…so you can finialy put some pressure on the qb!!!
