Just because the Chiefs aren't rebuilding the position doesn't mean we can't. Absolutely zero doubt that this is the weakest position on our team, and we all agree it needs to be vamped up.

What's your suggestion for vamping? How many draft picks do you burn, and where. How many free agents do we track down, and which ones*, and which WRs currently on our roster do we let go of?

with our transparent O line does it really matter who is out there?

IMO...

Draft picks we use on WR:

1st
Midround, like 4th or 5th

FAs we track down:

Antonio Bryant
Clarence Moore
David Patton

Chiefs WRs that we hold onto:

Chris Hannon
Eddie Kennison
Jeff Webb

Chiefs WRs that we let go/trade:

Rod Gardner
Dante Hall
Samie Parker

Well, that's not exactly going to fix our problems, but it's a marked improvement. And it's something.

Our #1 pick should be our #1, Kennison our #2, Webb and Bryant our top reserves, with Hannon in select distance-throwing situations, and Moore in select short-yardage/goalline/blocking situations, with two rarely-used reserves in our mid-round pick and David Patton.

Antonio Bryant should be avoided at all costs.

Otherwise, it's not a bad plan.

Headcase?

He's been fairly productive. If he has his shit straight he'd be a fitting #3 contributor.

Extreme headcase, and the kind of headcase that causes problems ON the field.

Bryant is one of those guys that will NEVER get his shit straight.

He's not a reclamation project.

I've been hoping we could pick up a solid experienced #3 in FA, and neither one of those other guys I "signed" would cut it as a #3.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Not a great FA market for WR after New England gobbled them all up.

I would venture that we're thinner at DT than we are at WR.

Everybody likes to talk about what position you take in the draft, but the way most teams (Texans not withstanding) do it is they choose from the best players left on the board. If you're unsure then you go by position but if there are 3 guys on the board who could be the best next pick and none of them is a WR then you don't get to take a WR.

WRs are needed for sure...someone to throw deep routes is needed worse...
