same could be said about Hali and Lawson.

Manny Lawson doesn't fit our defense. Unless you want a 3rd down pass rusher as our first round pick.

Tambi Hali doesn't impress me to be honest. I don't see the physical tools required to be what a first round end should be. I expect him to be an average-good NFL starter nothing more than that. I don't think he'll ever be more than a 5-8 sack guy.

Our pick is to early to be taking Hali, Hali at this point is rated around where our 2nd round pick is.

We already have two starting corners on the roster and one of them is a perenial Pro Bowler. We need D-line help. I saw the roundtable of Kiper and crew and I was less than impressed with them picking a CB or WR with our first rounder.

Surtain and Walls.

ROFL

I really hope you guys don't view Lenny Walls as a starting corner. I think he could be a pretty decent FS, but I'd rather him not be a starting corner atleast not for the entire season.

Mr. Laz
04-10-2006, 06:40 PM
Surtain and Walls.
imo you need to control who Walls covers ... and it's easier to do that with him as a nickle instead of a starter.

04-10-2006, 06:44 PM
I would like to see Battle or Sapp step up, but we are obviously going to get a corner somewhere. Whether it is off the scrap heap (Woodson, Law) or a first day draft pick. I would like to see a pass rusher with #20.

Mecca
04-10-2006, 06:44 PM

I don't think those ends are going to be the pass rusher that everyone thinks we need. There's a reason their sliding in draft stock. Benny Sapp can't even cover anyone as a nickel back let alone a starting player.

then maybe Hali falls to us in the 2nd and Pat Watkins in the third. And with our 4th we take Herm Edwards, finally we find a steal at WR with our 5th rounder.

Jared Allen was a 4th round pick too, Hali in the 2nd round fine, but you don't overreach on a player because you want to fill a spot. I consider taking Hali at 20 a reach, a pretty big reach at this point.

If we were a 3-4 team, fine pimp up Lawson all you want. But being a 4-3 team he has no spot on our roster unless you wanna put 20 lbs on him and nothing saying he'd be near the rusher then. Hell Mike Mayock on NFL Network doesn't even think Lawson moves well enough to be a OLB in a 3-4. He flat out called him a 3rd down situation DE and nothing more.

you're deflecting that Carl was looking at Lawson as a potential 1st, and Vermeil said if he knew that Allen was that good he would've taken him in the 1st.

That comment about Allen is dumb too, you don't take a player earlier than you have too, regardless of how good he is. That way you can get more than 1 good player out of your draft.

I seriously hope Lawson goes before our pick, and sense I think there's a pretty good chance of that I'm not to worried. The Chiefs picking Lawson first would really piss me off to no end.

I wouldn't mind at all if we drafted Lawson in the first. He weighs around 245 right now. He is 6'6, and he doesn't have a tiny frame. Beef him up to 255, and then see how he handles playing DE. If he is athletic, strong, and uses his leverage well he will be fine.

All this tweener stuff is getting kinda old. Merriman weighed in at 270 last season, and played at 270, and even he got labeled at tweener. He would make an excellent defensive end. Ware would make a fine defensive end too.

270 is fine for DE.......245 isn't. Kawika Mitchell weighs more than him. If you start putting weight on him it's very possible he loses his quickness, speed and acceleration. There's probably a reason he went all through college and never got above 245. I just don't think that would be a good pick in the 1st round.

I'm still on the Tamba Hali bandwagon.

He, simply put, is a player.

He isn't the biggest, the fastest, or the quickest.

He gets to the QB.

How many guys can be an elite corner for close to two decades?There's no question that a stud corner that is only 5'-9" is a rare thing. But it happens, and I'm not going to dismiss Tye Hill summarily simply because he's short. I'd rather have a 5-9 CB than a 6-4 CB.

Besides, the reality is that we're unlikely to get a stud CB at #20 anyway. This draft doesn't have a DeAngelo Hall type of player, and if it did he would be long gone before we picked.

I was just bring that up as a point for some of his knocks. Derrick Johnson was a good pick for us at 15, I think alot of his knocks came because people were thinking he was a lock top 10 guy. He also fit into our defense, if we were a 3-4 team I'd love to have Lawson. I just don't really see a starting role for him on our team and I think a first round pick should be a starter pretty quickly.

In fairness DeAngelo Hall may be the most overhyped player in the league. He runs his mouth and acts like he's the shit on the field then gets talked about like that on ESPN. The funniest shit ever was when they were all like "he shut down Owens" as Owens has 8 catches for 110 yards. DeAngelo Hall the only corner in the league that gives up a 20 yard completion then jumps and and beats his chest like he made a great play.

22 N.Y. Giants Will Allen CB Syracuse
24 Denver Willie Middlebrooks CB Minnesota

17 Oakland Phillip Buchanon CB Miami
26 Philadelphia Lito Sheppard CB Florida
59 Philadelphia Sheldon Brown CB South Carolina
64 St. Louis Travis Fisher CB Central Florida

28 Tennessee Andre Woolfolk CB Oklahoma
30 San Diego Sammy Davis CB Texas A&M
31 Oakland Nnamdi Asomugha CB California
35 Chicago Charles Tillman CB Louisiana-Lafayette
39 Jacksonville Rashean Mathis CB Bethune-Cookman
82 Carolina Ricky Manning CB UCLA
111 Buffalo Terrence McGee CB Northwestern State, La.
120 New England Asante Samuel CB Central Florida

2004
8 Atlanta DeAngelo Hall CB Virginia Tech
10 Houston Dunta Robinson CB South Carolina
25 Green Bay Ahmad Carroll CB Arkansas
28 Carolina Chris Gamble CB Ohio State
38 Pittsburgh Ricardo Colclough CB Tusculum, Tenn.
49 Cincinnati Keiwan Ratliff CB Florida
58 San Francisco Shawntae Spencer CB Pittsburgh
110 Chicago Nathan Vasher CB Texas

2005
6 Tennessee Adam Jones CB West Virginia
8 Arizona Antrel Rolle CB Miami
9 Washington Carlos Rogers CB Auburn
23 Oakland Fabian Washington CB Nebraska
29 Indianapolis Marlin Jackson CB Michigan
38 Oakland Stanford Routt CB Houston

50 St. Louis Ron Bartell CB Howard
56 Denver Darrent Williams CB Oklahoma State
57 N.Y. Jets Justin Miller CB Clemson
60 Indianapolis Kelvin Hayden CB Illinois
62 Pittsburgh Bryant McFadden CB Florida State

Ok now looking at all of those classes, I don't consider Hall the best one. He's in the top 5 but he certainly isn't better than Nate Clements. The arguement could be made that from his own class, Dunta Robinson is every bit as good as him.

Although nothing is funnier than watching the guy try to act like he's Deion Sanders when he's getting torched all over the field.

I don't want us to pick a CB in the 1st round for the following reasons:

1) They take too long to develop into quality starters. Most suck as rookies.
2) We are looking for a #2, and have the perfect nickel-back in Sapp.
3) We already have other options on the roster in Battle (supposed to be starting calibre last year), Walls (starter for Denver, handpicked by our new secondary coach), and youngsters like "Bling" Hodge.
4) With the rules against contact in the secondary, CBs are pretty much hogtied. There is no such thing as a shut-down corner, and very few consistently good ones.

If we throw a 1st rounder into the mix, we'll be cutting ties with one or more of the above. Why do that? A 1st round corner might pay off in the long run, but won't help us this year, IMO.

Then, look at our D-line. It's shameful. I hope we can get a good starting calibre 280lb end.

my .02
Tye Hill can be a #1 corner in the league. The Chiefs would be lucky if he fell to them. By playing left corner and right corner Gunther lets the offense dictate the matchups. You need to have two high quality corners in this system.

In my opinion the rules against contact puts the corner position at a higher premium. You need the most skilled players to break up passes and make minimal contact. The rule enforcement hasn't lessened the importance of the position.

Finally, I have personally come to accept the fact that I think this is a rebuilding year for KC. I don't think KC is a Tamba Hali or Gabe Watson or Bunkley or Kiwi away from a serious playoff push.

He, simply put, is a player.

He isn't the biggest, the fastest, or the quickest.
But he makes plays.
He gets to the QB.

I'm sick of all these guys that have all these combine numbers that bust.
Draft a player.

In fairness DeAngelo Hall may be the most overhyped player in the league. He runs his mouth and acts like he's the shit on the field then gets talked about like that on ESPN. The funniest shit ever was when they were all like "he shut down Owens" as Owens has 8 catches for 110 yards. DeAngelo Hall the only corner in the league that gives up a 20 yard completion then jumps and and beats his chest like he made a great play.

That's good. Too be honest, I REALLY like DeAngelo Hall. I could only wish we had a CB of that caliber on our team.

I like his attitude. I like CB's that can display that mental edge. CB's that are conceited, think they're the best, think they can cover anybody, and just have that attitude where they're confident, and show it on the football field. And play with nastiness, tenacity. That's the attitude you have to have to play CB. I think that's the reason we cut Warfield. Because he just simply doesn't fit that mold, and is not the type of CB the Chiefs are looking for.

*FTR, whoever said DeAngelo Hall "shutdown" Owens, complete misinterpretation. Those kinda WR's you don't shutdown. You contain them. And DeAngelo Hall contained Owens. I watched highlights of that matchup, he may
have given up some 20, 30 yard completions, but what I noticed DeAngelo Hall did was get physical with Owens all night long, and never gave up the big play. He was in his face all night. I never seen anybody do such a good job jamming Owens at the LOS disprupting the pattern and the timing of his routes. Fun to watch!

At first I was pimping towards us drafting D-line, now, I kinda changed my mind a little bit, and wouldn't mind if we fixed the secondary because it is very very weak. We only have 1 cover guy. That's it.

What good is one guy that can cover? fine he shuts down 1/4 of the field, but you still have 3/4 of the field wide open, and still giving the QB with plenty of options where to throw the ball. We got to fill those voids through the draft. Im more than convinced than ever Sammy Knight, Greg Wesley, and Lenny Walls don't do it for me back there. Man, we need at least 3 guys that can cover back there. That pretty much explains for a bad secondary. I hope we get a safety, and a really good CB in the first 2 rounds.

Manny Lawson doesn't fit our defense. Unless you want a 3rd down pass rusher as our first round pick.

Tambi Hali doesn't impress me to be honest. I don't see the physical tools required to be what a first round end should be. I expect him to be an average-good NFL starter nothing more than that. I don't think he'll ever be more than a 5-8 sack guy.

Our pick is to early to be taking Hali, Hali at this point is rated around where our 2nd round pick is.


If we are going to the cover 2, and there seems to be indications we are, then Lawson could be just what the doctor ordered for the defense. Look at the Bears defense. They have smaller defensive ends in terms of weight. Both of their DE's weigh 260. That seems plausable for a guy Lawsons size. Get him up to 255-260. He should keep most of his speed.

Plus, in the cover two, DE's sometimes drop off into coverage. He should be perfect at that.

I saw him play a couple of games this past season, and have the Senior Bowl TiVo'd. The guy is a serious playmaker at DE. He and Williams met at the QB quite often in the NC State games I saw.

In the Senior Bowl, the North (I think) ran several bootleg plays his direction. He played them very well. His speed and leaping ability cause most to be throw aways or incomplete passes. One was nearly picked off, and probably should have been.

The kid is a player, not just a workout warrior. We could do far worse than Lawson with our first pick.

For Lawson to be effective as a 4-3 down lineman the Chiefs are going to need the DT's to step it up big time and probably use the 2nd and 3rd pick on DT. The Bears front 4 generates pressure not only because they have DE's that can get to the QB, but because both tackles did a hell of a job collapsing the pocket.

Tye Hill can be a #1 corner in the league. The Chiefs would be lucky if he fell to them. By playing left corner and right corner Gunther lets the offense dictate the matchups. You need to have two high quality corners in this system.

In my opinion the rules against contact puts the corner position at a higher premium. You need the most skilled players to break up passes and make minimal contact. The rule enforcement hasn't lessened the importance of the position.

Finally, I have personally come to accept the fact that I think this is a rebuilding year for KC. I don't think KC is a Tamba Hali or Gabe Watson or Bunkley or Kiwi away from a serious playoff push.


I agree completely. With Herm and our FA moves (or lack of) we will be lucky to go 8-8 this year and then hopefully uptick next year.

You can have as many all-pros at CB and S that you want and it won't make a bit of difference when the QB has all day to throw. A quality front line/rush will make the secondary look great. Put no pressure on and the QB looks like a hall of famer. We make quite a few look that way last year.

Manny Lawson DE 6’5 240 North Carolina St.
By: Robert Davis

NFL Combine Stats: 40-yard dash - 4.43, vertical jump - 39.5"

Manny Lawson is one of the truly elite athletes in college football. Not only has he found time to play both end and linebacker, he’s also a track standout having competed in the long jump and hurdles during his time at NC St. As a linebacker in 2002, Lawson had 35 tackles, with one of them coming for loss. As a part time starter in 2003, he improved on all his numbers. He totaled 53 tackles, seven for loss, with three sacks. Lawson made the switch to DE in 2004, and became a full time starter for the first time in his career. On the year, he finished with 50 tackles, 12 for loss, and seven sacks. As a senior, Manny put it all together. He finished the season with career highs across the board: 58 tackles, 19.5 for loss, and 10.5 sacks.

Lawson is an absolute freak of an athlete. He has excellent agility, closing speed, and jumping ability. Pound for pound, he may also be the strongest player in the draft. There is not a single physical trait he lacks. On the football field, he is an emerging talent. He did not make too many plays early on, but once he moved to defensive end, he started to show his pass rushing ability. His upside is tremendous, and he could be a standout pass rusher at the next level. Lawson is also a standout special teamer.

With all his athletic gifts, he is prone to relying on them too often. A major part of that is due to his inexperience on the defensive line. As an end, he lacks the bulk to be a player against the run. Lawson carries the tweener tag, but that has not been a negative lately. Still, he may only fit for certain teams.

Manny Lawson has tremendous upside. As a pass rusher, he has as much pure talent as anyone in the draft. He is listed here as a defensive end, but he has the ability to play OLB in a 3-4 defense. Lawson is the type of player that makes team drool about his potential because of his physical talent. Pass rushers are put at a premium, so do not be surprised to see him crack the first round.

No way we draft a CB in the first round. We are sooo weak up the middle it is pathetic. Sims is a bust and the rest are backups at best. We literally have no push up the middle thus whether you have a probowler out there or a mediocre CB both will look bad most of the time with no pass rush. Case in point? Look at Surtain last year. Was he alllllll that? IMO, no. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy's play and think he is top notch but now with the rules favoring recievers even more I say put more of your eggs in the D-line basket to compensate for the new "absolutely no contact rule" of WRs.
Hoping Bunkely falls to 20 but doubt it.

In fact, during the college football season I tuned in NC State to check out Williams. I did not know what his number was, so I checked on an internet site. It said Williams was 9. I started watching the game, and after the first souple of series, I had to re-check the number, because #91 was the one dominating the game (Lawson).

I see what you're saying. But I'm convinced that if we don't get pressure on the QB with a front 4 pass rush, we're screwed again....regardless of who plays in our secondary. I wouldn't be surprised if Lenny Walls is a better CB than any DT we have is at his position. Our D-line is an absolute joke. Around the league, the best defenses have great D-lines (NE, Jax, Carolina, Chicago) etc. Look at who their CBs are: Guys like Ricky Manning, Nathan Vasher, Asante Samuel etc etc). I don't believe those guys would do crap for our team if we signed them. Simply because our D-linemen wouldn't win a damn pillow fight. Our secondary may not be great, but I think our secondary would do very well on any of those teams mentioned above, and their secondaries would suck if they played behind our front line. I'm absolutely convinced that Tye Hill (or whoever) won't make a difference to our win-loss record in 2006 if we draft him. Somebody like Mario Williams (as an example) would. JMO.

Finally, I have personally come to accept the fact that I think this is a rebuilding year for KC. I don't think KC is a Tamba Hali or Gabe Watson or Bunkley or Kiwi away from a serious playoff push.

I agree that the Chiefs desperately need to improve the front 4 and that Tye Hill isn't going to get KC into the post season. I do think that if he falls to 20 there is a very good chance that he will be the best available player and I think KC needs to start adding the best talent possible to the roster even though it might not be at the positions of greatest need and immediate impact.

Click on the Mario Williams link. #91 is Lawson. He is in on several plays in the video.

Add his teammate at DT in the 2nd. Might be a good combo. In the USA Today draft link, Williams and Lawson give MCCargo credit for taking up double and triple teams to free them up.

But he was right there in several of the plays that were focused on Mario. A highlight film of Lawson might have Mario piling on as well. As I stated earlier, the first time I tuned into a NC State game to watch Williams, I thought they must have had his number wrong. #91 was the DE that was all over the place. Turns out #9 was actully Williams, and it was Lawson who was kicking fanny and taking names.

Here is a bit from the Trent Green interview on kcchiefs.com...


Q: You signed Lenny Walls this week and you’ve played against him before. Any kind of scouting report on him?

GREEN: “I think Lenny will be a good addition in terms of what we’re going to do defensively. I think there’s been quite a bit of attention focused on the defensive side of the ball and obviously Gunther’s coming back. But Coach Edwards is a defensive coach and brought a lot of new defensive faces in. They’ve talked a lot about Cover 2 and we’ve played Cover 2 in the past. Lenny played a lot of Cover 2 in Denver. If you have a corner who’s 6'4" playing Cover 2 it makes it hard for the quarterback to hit it in the hole. That part of it he’s going to be good at.

“If that’s the direction we’re going in – in terms of more of the Cover 2 defense – then it fits perfectly.”

Let's take a 2nd round rated DE over the first round rated CB. Once again drafting a player based on your need over the talent level of who's left is how you have bad drafts. The Chiefs are masters of this, alot of you guys want Dline so bad it's clouding your judgement of who's likely to be the best player available when we pick.

Our team is old, our drafts should be about getting the best possible talent we can regardless of position. We are not 1 player away from winning a Superbowl.

By the way for the comment on what Trent Green said about Lenny Walls. The guys his teammate now, what do you expect him to say? That Walls sucks and won't do well? Lenny Walls is not the answer at CB by any stretch of the imagination.

Yeah, but when has Trent ever been anything but supportive to the media about any player?
I remember him saying good things about Bret Williams in a preseason game too when it was obvious that Williams would never be anything more then a turnstile at Tackle in the NFL. In other words, I do not believe that Trent, as leader of the team, can give an honest objective assesment of a player's talents to the media.

IMO, the only CB currently on the roster that's reliable is Surtain.

They talk about the "cover 2" like it's some big deal but offenses have beem scheming against it for years and most every time the Chiefs play it, they forget about the "cover" part. The reason is that it seems like we only have one legit CB all the time, and this year is no different.

We'll just have to see how set we are after all is said and done. If no improvements are made, I'm afraid this will be just another go-round of "this year's plan will be next year's priority" as deficiencies in years past have been just as glaring at this same juncture, just as they are at this point of this offseason. History has a way of repeating itself if ONE lets it despite coaching changes..

I believe that Lenny Walls was defintely signed to compete for a starting job and I wouldn't be surprised to him as the starter opposite Surtain. Lenny walls was interviewed a while back and he said he had every intention to start. I know that doesn't guarantee him a starting job, but I can say that I liked his enthusiasm and I believe he has the skills to cement the position.

On to Hali-some are pimping him as the end all and be all, but not not many. I believe the majority of the Hali supporters have seen him play and know that he has performed well at the collegiate level. Again, does that guarantee he will be a dominating Pro Bowler? No, but his play should speak for his potential at the next level. I would also say that his size and speed should also work in his favor for translating well into becoming a quality player at the NFL level. He looks to be an EVERY DOWN DE and that's an important thing for a high draft pick, don't you think?

I just thought it was good to hear Green say... that in a cover two scheme Walls would be fine.

Couple of thoughts...

1. IMO, KC should draft the best player available at a likely posistion, IOW, if Ferguson, Leinhart, or Bush fell to 20th (I know, not possible) they should pick them. In more realistic terms, if Ngata, Bunkley, or Huff fell to 20th...

2. I think the Chiefs should trade down if a great player is not available... According to the draft pick value chart (commonly used by NFL teams) Chicago may be interested in trading their 1st & 3rd for KC's 1st. CB & DE are fairly deep this year into the 3rd round.

3rd, I know he won't be left by the 54th overall pick, but if he is, Max Jean-Gilles would be too much to pass up, especially since he could play tackle this year and take Shields place next.

Just my thoughts.

1. IMO, KC should draft the best player available at a likely posistion, IOW, if Ferguson, Leinhart, or Bush fell to 20th (I know, not possible) they should pick them. In more realistic terms, if Ngata, Bunkley, or Huff fell to 20th...

2. I think the Chiefs should trade down if a great player is not available... According to the draft pick value chart (commonly used by NFL teams) Chicago may be interested in trading their 1st & 3rd for KC's 1st. CB & DE are fairly deep this year into the 3rd round.

3rd, I know he won't be left by the 54th overall pick, but if he is, Max Jean-Gilles would be too much to pass up, especially since he could play tackle this year and take Shields place next.

Just my thoughts.

Who do you think Chicago would be so interested in to lead to the trade you suggest?

Who knows, maybe DeMeco Ryans or Leonard Pope, take your pick of anyone, Chicago & KC doesn't have the same needs.

And why Chicago? why KC?

Wow, ok look, I used a hypothetical... I used CHI and KC because the 20th pick = 850, CHI 26th = 700, CHI 3rd (88th) = 150. I choose CHI because it works perfectly... It doesn't matter who the team is, I was just saying if at 20th, a good pick isn't there, KC should try to get another 3rd or a 4th out of trading down.

I agree with some of you; good football teams start with the line and move out. Our defensive line is inconsistent at best, other than Allen. Look at our offense, for example. Our line is awesome, and Priest Holmes flourishes, then gets hurt, and Johnson flourishes. All with an average at best WR corps. It's the line that dictates success.
