Thanks for posting, Mr. Hal McRae.

My advisors have indicated that drafting tackles isn't the best way to go. I don't know if they're right or not, but that's what they say. Additionally, we can expect a lot of these guys to be resigned by their respective teams, correct?

Why are tackles so darn difficult to come by? Maybe Svitek (sp?) will come along? God, we're screwed.

The only way we come up with a new starting LT is either move up in the draft(even then its a gamble) or work out a real Wiz-Bang trade.

I'm still intrigued by the idea brought up last night of giving Terry a look there and bringing in Davis from Az for RT.

"Hoping" that Svitek amounts to anything does not inspire my confidence at all.

And we all know the deal with Black.

Thanks Fax, I don't post much, but when I get the time I like too....

Good question. Really just 2 ways to get quality tackles: Use high picks on them, or sign big name free agents.

Chiefs haven't really used a Day 1 pick at the spot in this decade:

http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/teams/KC


That, plus letting Tait go, is tough....


I linked the Draftdaddy list because they actually did a nice job attempting to rank the players -- which is always subjective.

Here is the full offensive tackle list, via the Redzone.....unfortunately, it looks like draftdaddy didn't "miss anyone" in the unrestricted group .....the group stinks :harumph:

More great links, thanks. Problem is, our entire line is pretty shaky at this juncture, Mr. Hal McRae. It wasn't built for smashmouth and age is, as has been discussed to death, an issue as well.

I'd love for someone to tell me how in the hell we're going to build a line that can generate any offense at all next year, because I just don't see it.

Davis is turning into a solid LT for AZ, finally after his contract is up, the norm. He just might continue to get better, maybe Soloari can do somethings with him ?

Shields will retire, I think. Our tackles are crap unless one of the young guys steps up. Casey is too small for Herm's scheme.

It really looks like we need 3 if not 4 linemen in a bad way. And, as Mr. Mecca has pointed out that he has pointed out, you have to build an offense around the line. And, even if we find them, continuity and consistency in the line is very important. It will take them time to develop cohesion.

Gentlemen, I fear we are sorely f*cked.

I was wondering about that, too

I checked the list from Redzone and they have 1 list for backs -- tail and fullback


http://www.theredzone.org/2007/freeagents/showposition.asp?Position=RB

From the Draftdaddy list:

Justin Griffith: Very good, all-around fullback. He could command attention in the open market -- at least as much as a fullback can.


Heath Evans: Very underrated....actually drafted as a halfback by the Seahawks...he's bounced around, but has done well with the Patriots.


Mike Alstott: I know he had a good season for the Bucs, but considering his age and mileage as a runner, I wouldn't have added him to the list (like draft daddy did) -- he'll never play for anyteam except Tampa, I'd guess.

Don't disagree in total Royc75. Going from guard to right tackle is tough....Going from guard to left is almost impossible. But Steinbach is definitely a better athlete than Jordan Black. The Bengals were totally shocked that he made it to round 2 -- he was the 1st or 2nd pick in round 2, when he was drafted.

Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't, but it would not be surprising if a desperate team tried it.

Chiefs could also look into making a trade for tackle help, although trades for quality NFL players are uncommon...

I watched Wilson wiff on a few blocks, but overall i thought he did a fine job. If he continues to improve his blocking i think he could be the coolest FB/H-Back in the league. The only other guy in the NFL with his mix of skills is Cooley.

Theres plenty of blocking blame to spread around, it was his first year in the position. The others cant say the same.

The Colvin signing shows there's some precedent for the Pats signing Bears LBs.

The one guy I'd like the Chiefs to bring in is Rod Coleman. Other than Briggs, he's probably the highest impact defender in free agency.

Leonard Davis is precisely the type of player we should avoid at all costs. He survives in the league on his size alone. He lacks technique, he lacks footwork, he lacks work ethic, he basically lacks everything but size.

I think Curtis could be a hot property, just because he's lightning fast and has potential....He'll probably follow Mike Martz wherever he is, however.

Stallworth being a free agent is a mild surprise. The Eagles claim they won't throw huge money at him due to his history of injuries...we'll see.

I think Bennett could be real hot too -- particularly with the California teams. When he had a QB (Billy Volek) that would throw downfield, he was a 1,200 yard receiver in 2004...

In 2005 McNair came back and he was just a short to medium range type, mostly...plus, Bennett missed time with injuries in 2005.

Last season Tennessee had no QB until Young took over...and, even then, he couldn't rack up huge yards, as Young did a lot of running and didn't throw for big yardage.

I'd take Curtis or Stallworth, too, in this group.

By the way, just say no to Ashlie Lelie....I know he's a "big name" player, but he's been a wild underachiever most of his career :shake:

"Hoping" that Svitek amounts to anything does not inspire my confidence at all.

And we all know the deal with Black.

This could possibly be a good year to move back a few spots (if possible) and draft a low first round or high second round LT. San Diego got a good one last year in the second and there's quite a history of good LT's in the second round.

It's probably way too early to speculate. Hopefully we'll have a better idea after the combines.

Wes Welker of the Fins (RFA) and Drew Bennett of the Titans (UFA) definitely pique my interest at WR. Welker is 10x as dangerous as Dante, is tougher, has better hands, is probably faster, returns kicks, is a tremendous slot receiver. I'd go after him right away. Bennett was awesome as a rookie, I haven't heard much from him since, but he's as good as EK and much younger.

Welker is 10x as dangerous as Dante, is tougher, has better hands, is probably faster, returns kicks, is a tremendous slot receiver. I'd go after him right away. Bennett was awesome as a rookie, I haven't heard much from him since, but he's as good as EK and much younger.

Spot on about Drew, Mr. KCJohnny. He's a playmaker. Good possession receiver. I can't imagine the Tacks letting him go, but if they do and we could pick him up, he improves our receiving corp by a factor of 500. I'd play him either out of the slot or opposite of EK, frankly.

I'd love to see him in a Chiefs uniform.

Maybe the Dolphins coaching confusion will allow him to slip. We can hope. Can't we?

I like Bennett a lot -- I think he's looking towards California -- 49ers?

KC, don't forget, Welker can also kick -- made a 30 yard field goal, a couple X-points and kicked off for the Phins a bit in 2004, when Mare was injured.

Saban also said he's a near Pro Bowl like coverage player....Might be the MOST versatile player in the N.F.L.

P.S: I tried to find a photo of him kicking, but found his myspace instead! :hmmm:

Adalius Thomas and Donte Stallworth would be great. Draft a OT and DT in rounds one and two. Hopefully steal two guys that can start right away. Boom, contender time.

Yep; have had my eye on him for several months now. Don't know about his speed, but he's big, 29, and had 700+ yards receiving this year.

The problem with Drew Bennett is that he's injury prone (at least the years that I ended up with him on my FFL team!). He plays with the injuries, but they affect his performance. He had one great season (2004) but 4 other seasons where he was the starter, played at least 12 games, but had less than 60 catches.

The only FAs we'll be signing is our own, unfortunately.

Although, this is the every other year that Carl signs other team's free agents to keep the team competitive just enough to win eight or nine games, so I guess we'll be signing a couple.

If that is true (I'm certainly no judge of OLT talent) about LD, then I think Carl has no choice but to go after the best OLT on the board for our #1 pick.

The best LT on the board at our pick would be a HUGE reach.

Reaching to fill needs in the first day is a recipe for mediocrity, and failure.

Take the best player available at one of our myriad of positions of need.

I thought Tony Gonzales signed with you guys already?


No matter how sad that statement is, it is also pretty funny. He was our best offensive lineman on the Colts game. :shake:

The FA list is premature, and it will grow due to cap stipulations that each team will face.

Most teams don't cut anyone any good anymore.....everyones figured out how to deal with the cap.

Bronco fans, did you all miss Sharpe the two/more years he was gone?

Anybody else notice that most of those guys are off of some pretty awful lines?
If Leonard Davis is the best OT in FA that is not inspiring.

OK! Me and Hal McCrae are on the Wes Welker bandwagon! The ultimate ST player, a tremendously tough WR with great hands, a guy who will stretch the field for LJ and Gonzo, and can outrun just about any DB in space. Jump on the WW bandwagon with us!

Donte Stallworth!

sure, if you want a guy who will play about 10 games per year.

If Tynes stinks up those short FGs, Welker also kicks. How good is THAT!
