Not only did the Chiefs pick people we've all heard of, but they picked 2 guys that most of us WANTED.

Hell, the whole offseason. Have we really drastically upgraded almost half our starting personnel? *rubs his eyes*

No kidding, after drinking all day yesterday, I got online early this morning to see if this all really happened.

Not trying to be a smartass this time...I realy have to give you props for suggesting the Chiefs were going after Davis until Carolina grabbed him. That truly was prophetic.

Back to your post: Simply amazing. Our second round pick is a 3 time pro-bowler. Our first round pick will be there and could be rookie of the year. And our scouts have like 6 picks yet today to do some serious damage with. Gotta think they will find diamonds in the rough out of that many chances.

I hate draft day.
AD and the boy's always seem to make "good on paper" picks which turn out to be flamers.
Yeah, we did nab Ray Guy way back when, but too many Billy Jo Hobart, Todd Maravich (sp), Scott Dresbach picks make me just wanna forget the draft.
Besides, getting a draft pick is one thing, having them actually sign a contract is another. :hmmm:

Our moves are already paying dividends. They have already caused the Mange to implode.

Yeah, I was firmly convinced that there was just no way we could get DJ, and I absolutely was against trading any more picks even if it meant not getting him.

I just still can't believe it.

Plus the Broncos blew their draft! ROFL

Plus the Broncos blew their draft! ROFL = too sweet, must savor the moment.

I see the Lions as the key to our good fortune. If they draft with some brains instead of balls then DJ is gone, Carolina grabs Davis, and we are screwed again.

However, after drafting WR the past two seasons plus all the FA WR acquisitions during that time it just didn't make any sense for them to take Williams. :huh:

The football gods were watching over us!!

I'm still in shock....Had they taken Jerome Mathis in the 3rd I would have really fallen out of my chair.

The Chiefs making smart moves and the Donkeys drafting like they have a retarded version of Carl Peterson in charge...
ROFL

The New Orleans OT pick helped too.

And I almost forgot -- the Raiders blew their draft too! ROFL

The Clarrett Jug Head pick was classic..Not only was he a 6th to undrafted FA type of pick but until Marion Barber and C.Fason were off the board there is no way anybody touches Clarret Jug Head....Then to throw in the fact it wasn't even a need position for them is off the charts.

My prediction to bring us all down:


Nehemiah Broughton
FB (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft05/tracker/position?id=10) | (5'11http://espn-att.starwave.com/i/nfl/trans/1_2.gif", 250, 4.61) | THE CITADEL (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft05/tracker/school?id=2130)



Actually wouldn't be a horrible pick in the 7th round but in the 4th with the quality left on the board it would be a real kick in the crotch Carl Peterson style.
