My thoughts exactly. Front office knows we're waaaaay to thin there. Also, the fact that they signed NO cb's makes me think more and more they are makin a real STRONG push for Law.

I hope Howard can make the team or at least practice squad. He never really got a chance at Arkansas.

You know they're good when they give you their high school highlights and barely mention what college they attended.

Is there somewhere out there that has a current depth chart with all the FA/drafted/UDFA's added in? This list is cool and all, but I'm curious how many we actually have at each position at this point. Sounds like around 30 corners and 15 WR's at this point.

Thanks! Just wish it was position sortable. Oh well.


EDIT: I took that page and converted it into Excel, which is now position sortable. If anyone else cares, it's attached below.

There is no such animal in the NFL anymore.

There are teams that know how to acquire talent and teams that don't...

I already said this here (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showpost.php?p=3183327&postcount=21), but I rather like the Derek Morris pickup. It should be interesting to see if he, Reid, and Slaughter make the team or PS.

Guillory had 10.5 Sacks and 18 TFL while playing DE last year. This wasn't against the greatest teams but all of this to go along with his 4.5 speed and I already like him 100 times more than the guy from Baylor who was drafted last year. Kris Griffin better work hard to keep his spot

I don't know a damn thing about Guillory, but it wouldn't take much to make him better than Long...

Jarred Allen went to Idaho state not Boise state.

Unles they went to the same high school (I don't know).

I was hoping someone would know something about Morris. He was supposedly considered the "next Orlando Pace" coming out of high school. Don't know what happened to him, except coming out too early, to make him fall out of the draft.

I have a clue what happened, aside from the aforementioned Wilkerson effect, but it definitely works for us. His main deficiencies are where he can be helped the most at this level, especially with the OL coaching in place. If he has the mental capacity and dedication to learn the position properly, he could turn into a really nice player.
