Do you agree. I hear all you talking about MLB but we can't keep throwing picks at that position. Kawika and beisel might be able to handle it there.

OLB might be needed in the draft but I want Corner or Defensive end.

Other than Mitchell how many MLB's have the Chiefs drafted in the last 5 or 6 years? I don't see them throwing picks at the position.

I think they need a dominant MLB, a DE and a CB (in that order).

Mitchell and Beisel cannot 'handle' MLB... they've proven that much.

MLB = the defense's QB. If there's a stud MLB available in the draft, you take him. If not, Corner. RDE would be nice, but it's the least of our defensive weaknesses right now.

Is there a MLB worth Drafting in the 1st round?

I say go with Hartwell from the Ravens.

Probably not. I was just commenting on the mistatement that the Chiefs have thrown picks at that position in recent years.

I think pursuing a free agent MLB is probably the best approach, but two of the better guys - Hartwell and Bell play in a 3-4 and I think there would be a problem in adjusting to a 4-3 early in the season.

I'd love to draft a dominant MLB, but realistically I don't see it happening as they give Mitchell another year or two to learn how to play football.

If we don't draft an MLB, I'd vote for an OLB. Is Barber going to be back? Is he a good answer anyway? If not him, then who's going to be our SLB next year? Unless someone steps up and seizes the job, I see a gaping hole at that position.

I'm sick of this "they play in a 3-4" crap. Hartwell is a playmaker and has had the best mentor one could have. Singleterry and Lewis, I say give the dude a chance, whats the worst that happens? He doesn't make it at MLB but replaces someone at OLB.

He's played inside linebacker and has the size.

Same thing as last year for me... I want a CB, but I don't want to rely on all our secondary improvement coming from rookies... I'm all for drafting a CB or two but don't stop there, we've got to bring in a veteran because of the more "touchy feely" contact enforcement plus the speed of the game adjustment a college CB will have to make in the pros.

I agree with this, resign Scott Fujita or just start Keyaron Fox at Left Outside Linebacker next year, sign Ed Hartwell from the Ravens, and Draft Ahmad Brooks and we should have a very good LB core.

I would love the lineup of Fujita, Hartwell, and Brooks. The Brooks kid is gonna be a stud from what i've heard and i cant till the draft gets here I hope we draft him but we probably wouldnt have a shot at getting him at all more than likely.

I think the developement of Allen and Fox will help shape the draft. I think Allen will be one of the starting ends next year, so if you draft another DE, would you look at starting a rookie and a second year man. At LB I think Fox is going to be something special, you have Fujita who is fast and Fox who is faster. I would like to see Mitchell live up to his immense potential, but that goes for more than just a couple of current young Chiefs. Beisel is a good player, tough and old school. I think we are set a safety, with Woods and Wesley, youngsters Harts and Pile. To me, we need a CB who will stick you at the line, and then be inside your jock all the way to the locker room. Overall I agree that we need to go "D", look for speed, speed, speed and as much nasty as you can fit into the speed. GO CHIEFS.

HC_Chief

That would be a RADICAL improvement. Hartwell and Fujita, we all know about. Brooks would be the only question mark.... but he does have size (6'4", ~240-250#) and speed (4.6). He's scary fast for that build. Plus, he can TACKLE. IMO that's what we need more than anything else: players who can TACKLE on defense.

It would be an improvement without a doubt, but I think you'd have an even bigger improvement with a veteran and a rookie. At this point I don't care how the improvement gets done or if some 1st round draft pick has to start his first year as a nickel corner, if it makes the team better and gives us a shot to win the Super Bowl next year it needs to be done.

Mitchell has only started 10 games at MLB this year. The last 5 he's shown much improvement. IMO he's starting to get it .As far as Beisel starting the season at MLB that was due in large part ot Mitchell being injured during training camp.

I know, it could just be a coincedence, but don't forget that Maz made a lot of the adjustments and calls at the line.... yardage-wise there wasn't a ton of difference but in terms of points and turnovers, there was a sharp difference from Maz and when Kawika stepped in. We had something like 27 turnovers in the first 9 games and 8 in the final 8... and more importantly just about every time the defense was forced to have to step up in the 4th quarter during that 9-0 stretch (Baltimore, Denver, Green Bay, Oakland), the defense got it done. Since Maz went out there have been very few times where the defense has had to make a stop and succeeded. Honestly I do believe Maz played most of that Cincy game but considering he didn't play after that he was obviously playing hurt and even then the defense didn't get completely annihilated like it did by Denver/Minnesota/Indy at the end of the year... I don't even think Maz was all world but it's pretty obvious he was the brains of the defense.

Here's what I found on that Free Safety named Donte Nickolson from Oklahoma :

Donte Nicholson

College: Oklahoma
Height: 6-2
Weight: 216
Position: Safety
Class: Senior
40-Yard: 4.48

SCOUTING REPORT
Strengths: Great size...Good athlete...Very physical, tough and aggressive...An intimidating presence...Great tackler...A force against the run...A playmaker.

Weaknesses: Only decent speed and could struggle in coverage at the pro level...Can be too aggressive at times...Needs to work on his technique.

Notes: A poor man's Roy Williams...Should be one of the first safeties off the board and be able to make an impact early in his pro career.

Troy Williamson

College: South Carolina
Height: 6-2
Weight: 200
Position: Wide Receiver
Class: Junior
40-Yard: 4.4

SCOUTING REPORT
Strengths: Excellent speed...Good size...Very good production...Good athletic ability...Explosive...A big play threat who can really stretch the field.

Weaknesses: Needs to expand his game to be more than just a deep threat...Played in a run orientated offense...Has had some minor injuries so durability could be a minor concern.

Notes: Underrated player who has been one of the most productive wideouts in the SEC...Could thrive as a senior in Steve Spurrier's offense if he returns to school.

The First step in solving the problem is a realistic assessment.

Too many people here have developed affection for certain players and ignore the fact that they've been here 3 years and we have not yet escaped the bottom 10 in defense.

Defensive Line:

Actually....we haven't been too bad here. Not dominant, but we aren't getting blown off the line like in years past. Where we have room for improvement is a true pass rusher that scares offenses. To be honest, you do not NEED such a player to field a good defense, look at the Redskins as an example. Furthermore, Jared Allen could be such a player with more weight room work.

Linebacker:

Lets face it, our Linebackers are HORRIBLE. Fujita is the only acceptable starter. Mitchell has good workout numbers but poor instincts. Who knows how he will turn out. Will Maz come back? Again, that is anyone's guess. How effective will Shawn Barber be...again...who knows? Caver is, at best, a marginal backup. Keyaron Fox is another question mark. But, if this team is to compete next year, we cannot afford to simply pray we will get production.

Secondary:

Almost as bad as the linebackers. We have a crying need for a corner. The only way to be SURE we can get someone is to both bring in a veteran AND spend a high draft pick. Even so, we tried that in '03 and it didn't work (McCleon and Battle).

This year we need to go after a veteran with a better pedigree and a higher draft pick. Woods has also performed poorly at safety. I do not think we should simply trust he will improve next season.


BOTTOM LINE:

We need to bring in at LEAST 5 quality defensive players next season. Four veterans and one high draft pick. That means two linebackers and three players in the secondary. This equation changes if you could bring a prime pass rusher like John Abraham into the fold. Then you might skimp on the secondary (sign one veteran corner) and shore up the linebackers.

Don't worry. We'll convert him to a CB so it will be like drafting a CB.

We need to spend the most $ on a CB. I am not sure who will be there. If we would have added Tory James or Antoine Winfield in the past couple years our D would be much better today.

Next we need help with 2 LB's. Allen will hopefully step up and start at DE.

We then need to address CB, LB and D Line in the draft for depth and the future.

My biggest fear heading into this season was how the D ended up performing. I am still pi**ed that we didn't spend the entire cap ammt with such glaring needs.

I think Lamar felt like he spent $ on Green and Holmes the prior year and when he heard Gunther tell him he could take the same players G Rob had and make it a decent D (out of pride) he didn't sign anyone significant other than Dalton.

I am convinced they should go for the right defensive end if he has explosive burst off the line. Monster pass rushers on both sides would stop all the long passes and bootlegs.

Draft rounds:

1) RDE
2) Corner
3) OLB
4) Punter/Kicker

We don't need another safety. We have 9 of them now. We don't need to try to convert a safety to corner. We keed hoping that works and have proven it doesn't.

If all else fails then get 4 quarterbacks in a row from Frisco. That last plan can't miss.

Tight Ends convert to Defensive Ends.

You drop the player down to the next easiest position because he will have good speed for that spot. Why are we moving safeties to corner spots? Cuz we are desperate to get a good corner but don't want to pay for one.

I feel strongly that the Chiefs single biggest need for next year is MLB, but with that said I doubt there is anyone in the draft that can fill that need as a rookie. Thus, the Chiefs need to find the MLB in free agency.

The Chiefs also need a CB and DE next year with CB being the bigger need. Unlike MLB I think talented CB's and DE's can make big impacts as rookies. My preference is the Chiefs use the draft to improve the CB position and free agency for MLB.

I am willng to be patient with DE because I believe in Wilkerson and Allen. But, if the team wants to obtain another DE I hope they do it through the draft not free agency. Please, no more Vonnie Holliday's.

Defensive Ends we need to consider drafting :

DE Erasmus James, Wisconsin, 6-4 263, 4.75 in 40
DE Mathias Kiwanuka, Boston College, 6-7 261, 4.6 in 40 (updated mock draft has us taking him)
DE David Pollack, Georgia, 6-3 261, 4.7 in 40
DE Dan Cody, Oklahoma, 6-5 270, 4.75 in 40
DE Justin Tuck, Notre Dame, 6-5 261, 4.56 in 40
DE Matt Roth, Iowa, 6-4 275, 4.75 in 40

And a safety they have us taking in the 2nd round on that Mock draft is another safety from Oklahoma named Brodney Pool. I dont know if he is any good or not hopefully some of you do.

I heard that the Bost. Coll. guy is shooting up. I doubt we get him.

Pollack or Erasmus for us ......Hopefully.

Those guys do go fast in the draft.

Well on that mock draft Erasumus went with the 8th pick and Mathias went to us on the 18th pick, and Pollack didnt even go until around 23-25.

I agree just think if he's there we definately need to take him.
