7 Round Chiefs Mock Draft 4.0

Big Change with the top pick as I no longer have the Chiefs going with Michael Curry, the more I think about it the more I see Scott Pioli moving down a couple of slots and getting a pass rusher who could have a bigger impact for the Chiefs this season. The Chiefs are in win now mode and will be drafting pieces who can help them do that.

Round 1 Pick # 3:

Brian Orakpo, Defensive End, 6′ 3 255., Texas

I don’t think the Chiefs will pick Orakpo at #3, but I do think a team like the Bengals may fall in love with Michael Crabtree or a team like the Browns may fall in love with Michael Curry and trade up with the Chiefs to get their player. Scott Pioli has traded down to acquire more picks in 6 out his 9 drafts in New England and if offered the right compensation Pioli could move down a couple of slots and still get a impact player on defense.

Round 2 Pick # 2:

Traded to New England for Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel.Round 3 Pick # 3:

Fenuki Tupou, Offensive Tackle, 6-5 314, Oregon

After going defense with their first pick the Chiefs are going to have to patch together a O-line for the 2009 season . Tupou has good up side but will not figure to be a major player on the line in 2009 he will provide quality depth , something the Chiefs are sorely lacking.

Round 4 Pick # 2:

Terrance Knighton, Defensive Tackle, 6-3 317, Temple

With the selection of Orakpo and Knighton the D-Line now has some pieces to make the transition to the 3-4. Orakpo is one of the best pure pass rushers in the draft and Knighton is the anchor in the middle that is imperative for a 3-4 defense to succeed.

Round 5 Pick # 3:

Scott McKillop, Inside Linebacker, 6-1 244, Pittsburgh

The Chiefs had major issues with their linebackers last season , this off season they brought in Mike Vrabel and Monty Beisel who will only be stop gap fixes. The long term solution will have to come from the draft. McKillop was second team all American and registered 17.5 tackles for a loss last season.

Round 6 Pick # 2: Kaluka Maiava, Outside Linebacker, 5-11 229, USC

Maiava may have been overshadowed by the three other linebackers out of USC who will be drafted in the first round , but Maiava still made enough plays to be 2nd team all PAC-10. The Chiefs are extremely thin at LB and in the sixth round the Chiefs find good value.

Round 7 Pick # 3

: Patrick Turner, Wide Receiver, 6-5 223, USC

Turner was supposed to be the next big thing at receiver for USC after Mike Williams and Dwayne Jarrett, But Turner was just solid and not spectacular. The knock on Turner is that he’s a step slow for a WR but he can catch the ball in traffic and at 6-5 that could be a real mismatch problem.

Round 7 Pick # 47:

Cedric Dockery, Offensive Guard, 6-4 320, Texas

Big physical specimen for the Chiefs to throw in the mix on the offensive line, Dockery was honorable mention all Big 12 two years after tearing his ACL. If Dockery is fully recovered from his injury he could find a way onto the final 53 man roster.
