What I'm hoping for here is, that posters will find profiles and scouting reports from the top prospects at each of the positions of need for the Chiefs.

I'll use Laz's "rankings" from Draftdaddy.com, to start these threads...I hope you don't mind Laz; Draftdaddy's are a good place to start....

There are lots of "free sites" with profiles and scouting reports out there....this is the place to put all the stuff for WRs. However, if you have access to a premium site (and you have the right to cut and paste, with appropriate crediting of sources) and can post the profiles and scouting reports of the top prospects, or intriguing prospects that you would like to pimp/promote.....here's your chance. :thumb:

52.5 Pros: Good route runner with great hands. Catches both the difficult and the easy catches. Unselfish hard worker with great attitude. Will win a fight for the ball. Has played DB in high school, and knows what to look for in defenses. Consistent player and willing in the run game as a blocker.
Cons: No blazing speed or ability to get open deep. Stock may be dropping a bit after running a 4.80 at his Pro Day. Not your game breaker type receiver and lacks explosiveness. Has been overshadowed by Braylon Edwards, but put up 1000 yards last year without him.

Height: 6-0 1/2 | Weight: 209 | 40-Time: 4.62

Strengths:
Is a very good athlete...Has good size...Is a threat in the red zone due to his size, hands and ability to go up and get the ball...Very polished with good hands...Smart, tough player with good character and top intangibles...Productive and did a very nice job of stepping up to replace Braylon Edwards as a senior.

Weaknesses:
Does not have elite speed or quickness...May have trouble gaining separation from cornerbacks at the next level...Is not much of a deep threat...Doesn't provide much in terms of running after the catch...Has been known to drop some catchable balls due to lack of concentration...May not have a whole lot of upside.

Notes:
Probably not a true #1 wide receiver in the pros but he could be a solid #2 or possession guy...What you see is what you get with him and while he may never be a star he is a very solid player who could play in the league for a long time.

61.5 http://www.nflfans.com/images/show100x13.gif (http://www.nflfans.com/x/2006/showplayer.php?key=Martin Nance&legend=yes)Pros: Good size-speed combo at 6'5" and is rumored to have run as low as 4.35. Can totally dominate games with his ability. Will use his size to fight off receivers for the ball. Is a great red-zone target (14 TDs this year) and rarely drops balls.
Cons: Average leaping ability (34.5 inches); was injured seriously in the 2004 season which forced him to miss all of the season. Sometimes he catches the ball more with his body than his hands. Can lose his focus sometimes and have an off game. Speed is not as great as was thought. Draft Exchange Analysis:
SCOUTING REPORT Physically-gifted wide receiver that is coming off the most prolific single-season of any wide receiver in program history ... possesses excellent size and body control as well as a 34.5-inch vertical leap and 4.35 time in the 40 ... already ranked among Miami's career top 10 in receiving yards as a sophomore ... has improved in making additional yards after the catch ... very fluid runner with deceptive speed.

Martin NanceHeight: 6-4 1/4 | Weight: 213 | 40-Time: 4.55


Strengths:
Has tremendous size and a big frame...Is a major threat in the red zone...Is underrated athletically...Good leaper who knows how to go up and get the ball...Has big, strong, reliable hands...Will make the acrobatic catch...Physical and knows how to use his body...Tough player who is more than willing to go over the middle...Solid route runner...Intangibles are top notch...Very productive.

Weaknesses:
May not always play up to his timed speed...Is not very quick...Isn't an explosive athlete...Could have trouble getting separation against pro defensive backs...Probably won't be a major deep threat at the pro level...Will lose focus at times...Has missed some time due to injury...If he doesn't run well in workouts teams may downgrade his upside to that of a #2 or possession receiver.

Notes:
Had a monster season in 2003 (90 rec. for 1,498 yards and 11 touchdowns) as Ben Roethlisberger's main target...Missed most of the 2004 season with an ACL injury to his left knee...Based on size, speed and production this guy has just

61.5 http://www.nflfans.com/images/show100x13.gif (http://www.nflfans.com/x/2006/showplayer.php?key=Hank Baskett&legend=yes)Pros: Incredible size, hand-eye coordination, disciplined, hard working WR who rarely drops a ball, can dominate games like this year against Missouri (10 catches 209 yards 3 TDs), could become a great red-zone target in a NFL team as he also has an amazing leap (high jump champion).
Cons: Speed isn't his forte, hasn't put up the red zone stats you would expect with his size; very inconsistent with games over 150 receiving yards and some under 15. Could use some refinement in his route running. Physical, but not a great blocker in the run game. Didn't fair as well against better competition and consistently played weak competition. Draft Exchange Analysis:
New Mexico's top pass catcher who established himself as one of the best in an outstanding group of wide receivers in the Mountain West Conference...entered the season as one of the top unheralded receivers in the country, but stepped into the spotlight with his play in 2005...a Biletnikoff Award semifinalist who saw his NFL stock soar in his final year...ranked by ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. as the No. 2 senior WR in the country and among the top-25 senior player in the country much of the fall...accepted an invitation to play in the prestigious Senior Bowl college all-star game...flourished as the Lobos' No. 1 target in 2004 and was sensational as a senior in the team's expanded passing attack...2005 team captain...140 receptions for 2,288 yards and 17 TDs, averaged an impressive 16.3 yards per catch in his career...ranks 3rd all-time at UNM in receiving yards, 4th in receptions, and is 2nd in receiving TDs...yards per catch is the third-highest among the Lobos' top-10 reception leaders...9 100-yard receiving games in his career...went over the century mark in 7 of his last 14 games...caught at least one pass in 24-straight games to close his career...

Height: 6-2 7/8 | Weight: 224 | 40-Time: 4.49

Strengths:
Has tremendous size...Very physical and knows how to use his big frame...Is an excellent natural athlete...Has great hands...Will routinely make the spectacular reception...Great leaper who was the 2004 Mountain West Conference outdoor high jump champion...Can be a major threat in the red zone...Has excellent body control...Runs well after the catch...Plays faster on the field than he times.

Weaknesses:
Does not have elite speed or quickness...Is not much of a deep threat and won't run away from pro defensive backs...Needs to round out his game and refine his technique...Is not as good of a blocker as a guy his size should be...Has some trouble beating the jam at the line...Can run better routes...Missed some time as a freshman with a spinal injury that will need to be checked out by the doctors.

Notes:
Doesn't get the attention he deserves as one of the premier senior wideouts in the nation...Has everything you look for except pure speed and is a bit of a big school sleeper...Could potentially be a #1 receiving target at the next level.
