Not literally, because that just gets saliva on your money.

List the Chiefs' draft if you had been in charge, and then at the end of the season we'll look at them and perhaps have some sort of discussion or contest to see who would've made the best GM.

Rules:

1. List your picks by round, and the player you take has to have been available to the Chiefs at that point. For example, you cannot take Calvin Johnson in the 5th round.

2. If you would've traded up, please do so, and assume that you would be giving up picks that are equal in value on this handy-dandy draft value chart. http://www.theredzone.org/2006/draft/draftvaluechart.asp
You cannot trade your 7th for Detroit's 1st, even if you're sure that you could talk Matt Millen into it. You can also not trade players to move up, so you cannot trade the rights to William Bartee for the #1 pick in the draft.

3. Please, and I cannot emphasize this enough, please be honest in how you would've picked. If you would've picked Troy Smith in the first, don't fudge just because you know now that you could've gotten him with a second.

4. Ignore the "stepped on a butterfly in the age of dinosaurs" argument. If the person doesn't show up on the list before your pick, they're eligible. If they do, they're not eligible.

For your convenience, here is a list of draftees. http://www.nfl.com/draft/drafttracker/round/round1

Here's what my draft would've looked like.

1st: DT Alan Branch. Bowe was #2 on my list, but Branch was #1.

2nd: DT Demarcus Tyler. I would've really been looking for a WR here, but they were all gone by this point, so I would've gone with the top player on my list. Taaaaaaank.

3rd: G Josh Beekman. It would've been between him and CB Tanard Jackson, but Beekman has a more cool name.

5ath: WR Aundrae Allison. Top receiver on the board by that time for me.

5bth: K Mason Crosby. Seriously, I would've taken a kicker, and my magazines liked Crosby.

6th: ILB Brandon Siler. My magazines rated him highly.

7th: RB Nate Ilaoa. Just for gochiefs. And LJ.


Honestly, I think I like the Chiefs' draft better than my own.

I'll play, Rain Man.

R1 - Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee

R2 - Daymeion Hughes, CB, California

R3 - Tank Tyler, DT, NC State

R5 - Mason Crosby, K, Colorado (Upon further review, I'm very happy w/Medlock)

R5 - Derek Landri, DT, Notre Dame

R6 - Corey Hilliard, OT, Oklahoma State

R7 - Tim Duckworth, OG, Auburn

I'll play along. Using the BPA philosophy:

1. Branch. Branch and Beason probably would have been the two highest guys remaining on my list. DT is a desperate need so I would have given Branch the edge; provided the medical staff said he doesn't have broken legs. Bad wheels = Beason.

2. Kalil would have been the pick since I felt he had 1st round talent.

3. Charles Johnson. A little raw, but amazing numbers.

5a. Brandon Frye.

5b. Michael Coe (CB)

6. Siler (ILB)

7. David Ball (WR)

1. Use a 4th in '08 and 6th round pick in '07 to trade up to 20. Hold Cleveland hostage for Brady Quinn, getting the same package that Dallas got for their pick.

2a--with the pick from Cleveland, draft Dwayne Jarrett
2b Ryan Kalil

3: Tank Tyler

5a: Kolby Smith (like the pick)
5b: Medlock (like this as well

6: Traded as Part of Quinn Package

7: Brandon Siler, ILB, Florida

While I like the Bowe pick a lot, this is what I would have done in a perfect world (including the Khalil pick, but maybe not the Medlock pick). Of course, we would have to know that Cleveland was willing to get raped in the deal.

And they would have have to been willing to deal with us.

According to reports, they weren't willing to deal with an AFC team unless they had to.

They didn't have to.

It takes two to tango. Don't see how this is CP's fault......

I'm not gonna do trades because I'm lazy and don't want to look at that chart. So here's mine:

1. Meachem
2. Ryan Kalil
3. Tank
5a. Medlock
5b. Michael Coe
6. Jacob Ford
7. Keith Jackson

Yes the last three are homer picks.

Here's what would kill me were I a Raider fan:

I could have Drafted Joe Thomas in 1, Blaylock at the top of R2, traded Moss to NE for a 4, used that to move up from 3 to late 2 and gotten Kalil.

They would have had a DEVASTATING left side of the line had that occurred.

Thank god they got none of those players. Dumbasses.

6th: ILB Brandon Siler. My magazines rated him highly.

7th: RB Nate Ilaoa. Just for gochiefs. And LJ.



Here's my problem with that. Aside from the fact I don't like Branch all that much, under your scenario we're taking two DTs -- just like we did in real life -- but our WR is some 5th rounder, which is something we always do, rather than a legit difference-maker like Bowe is.

What the Chiefs did was get two much-needed DTs, one of which is undersized but probably a better fit for the Cover 2 than Branch, and still got a much, much better WR.

As I have said several times, we have too many holes to fill with one draft. Rather than try to plug a position each round, we got (IMO) quality guys at nearly every pick. Next year, hopefully, we'll get some OLs and CBs (and maybe a LB or two, too).

When bringing up Cleveland you have to take into account from what I've heard come from Herm and reports..........

They were unwilling to make the trade they made with Dallas with an AFC team, they made the Chiefs an offer but it wasn't close to what they offered Dallas.

I've heard we offered Cleveland the chance to take 23 for a 2nd, 3rd and 5th.

They wanted to keep day 1 picks, so they gave away a likely Top 10 pick to Dallas.

They didn't want to deal with us. Plain and simple.

Why are people spending second round picks on a guy that we got in the third??

Notice the focus on the offensive line. Whoever is QB of the week for the chiefs they will have some protection this year and beyond. LJ, Bowe, Gonzo and Kennison will make plays and do their stuff. Bring back those offensive points!!

I liked Hughes alot and Marshal Yanda. Other than that I was pretty happy with the Chiefs.

Because people are being honest and would have taken him under the belief he wouldn't have made it to the 3rd.

According to Peter King's article Savage said he talked with every AFC team ahead of us except for Cincy for obvious reasons. He would have traded with us had Quinn been there, and I believe we would have gotten more than Dallas did because we could have said we were going to take him if they didn't make a sweet offer.

CP: If he's somehow there at 23... we take him.

That is what caused Savage to pull the trigger with the Cowboys. Also, Jones played it well if the King article is accurate.
