If Bunkley is off the board, I'm all for it.

Hill ran a 4.30 at the combine I believe. When was the last time we had a corner with that kind of speed?

Carter?

And I'm all for it. I know Gabe Watson gets a lot of love around here, but if both of these guys are still on the board, I'd feel better getting Tye Hill.

If he's on the board then we have to take him. We can still get a quality DT in the 2nd round. I'd say we can still snag the 3rd-4th best DT in the draft at that 2nd round pick.

his change of direction is better than anyone we have on the roster right now.

several guys might be there at #20 for us imo

No way Michael Huff is there at 20. I know alot of people said the same about DJ last season, but this guy is top 10. He has Troy Polamalu speed, maybe even better.

maybe ...


if some team wants him for a cornerback then he is prolly gone.

but if teams look at him as a safety he very well could fall.


usually safeties,linebackers,Guards,Tightends tend to fall at little further than they are ranked.

With Hill's performance at the combine, he could likely be the 2nd DB taken in the draft. I don't think he falls to 20.

Mr. Kotter
03-07-2006, 07:34 AM
Anyone should be able to learn to play zone with a good secondary coach.

Anyone can "play"--the question is do they have the speed, athletic ability, and, most importantly, instincts to make plays? Guess which one Warfield lacked most of the time? It's why Herm understood he's expendable.

TW's point is great: "Herm said" average corners can be disguised, but upfront is were the gamechangers are" in his interview with Rich Eisen after Rich asking him which position KC needs help more DB or the DL"... it is what we have forgotten the past 4-5 years.

I don't care who your corners are, if you consistently give the QB and WRs an extra 1-2 seconds to get "open".....even best CBs in the league are gonna get roasted over the course of the season.

We need pressure, or at least the consistent threat of serious pressure, on every passing play. And since 2000 or so, we simply haven't had it.

I think Hill is a good CB prospect, but don't expect him to be great in his first year. He's slow to react in zone coverage, seemingly always a half step behind.

Rookie CBs rarely play well as starters, and I think Hill will be a downgrade from Warfield in his first year.

May be a great CB down the road, but I don't think he makes an immediate impact.

I don't see Huff surviving to #20, either. I think some teams will tag him as a CB.

If we're looking at BAA, I don't see how we can take a DT at #20, there just aren't any that don't have question marks.

I think if the best safeties and ends are gone when we pick, we look to trade down for someone like Bunkley.

If Hill is there we almost have to take him.

A CB has a learning curve of 2 or so years. Hill has the talent to immediately be our #2 CB. Add in the learning curve and he could be our Hasty for the next decade.

DT/DE are two of the easiest positions to play and good talent can be had at either in the 2nd round.

Hill and Huff, for the Chiefs, are just like DJ last year. If either are there, we'd be hard-pressed to pick someone else. It's just not probable that they will be.

That being said, Tamba Hali has a chance to be our Neil Smith for the next decade. He'd be hard to pass up as well.

<i>Tamba Hali has a chance to be our Neil Smith</i>

If Hill and Bunkley are gone then I'd jump all over Hali. Hali on one end with Allen on the other would give a great pass rush.

However I'd take Hill because I think he has the ability to jump slants and 3 step routes that teams use when they do face a pass rush.

Bunkley is just an inside monster and would allow us to cut Sims rather then continue to waste time on him.

Not in zone. I watched a whole video segment on Hill and his zone play. He's slow to react. He was always a step behind in his decision to commit. That's something that would likely improve with increased awareness/confidence, but for now, he's not a great zone CB.

I still wouldn't mind having him. I just don't think he'd be all that effective in his first year,

Jimmy Williams? Really? He insists he is a S, yet he'll be drafted in the 1st by somebody as a CB. With the arrogant attitude he's already showing, you really want to take that on? BTW, I assume you don't mean Mario or Deangelo Williams.

Aside from JW, I'm in full agreement with you list. I have a hard time seeing your 2nd round choices being available @56. 54? Yet it always seems to happen every year, somebody graded as 1st round talent slides deep into the 2nd round.

I should have looked a bit closer at your list, just made the assumption your 2nd list was 2nd round wish list. My bad... Bunkley and McNeil I'd move back a bit to select in the 1st, but preferably not @20. It takes 2 to tango, so if there's nobody willing, we'll have not choice. I don't see Lawson as a fit at all, seems like he should be OLB in a 3-4.

I'm throwing Lawson in because of what Gun/HE said in the article a week or so. It seems like they want Bell to be a one hand down pass rusher. If their answer to the poor pass rush is moving a LB type player to the front, then I think Lawson would be the guy to do it. Bell didn't seem that fast last year and he didn't seem willing to hit. If that is the scheme, then I wouldn't mind drafting a player who can execute it.
