View Full Version : Who might we have taken in the 3rd if the Dolphins weren't a bunch of ball-lickers?

Well, now that it has come out that the Chiefs were willing to swap 3rd round picks with Miami who do you think the Chiefs might have been targeting?

Poll to come including list of players taken between their pick and ours...

I still think we take Tank.....

I still think we take Tank.....

I do too, so it really wouldn't have meant much, other than to cost more to sign him.

Wow, so far a rare ChiefsPlanet consensus.

My guess is that the Chiefs still would have taken Tank Tyler and the Dolphins still could have taken Lorenzo Booker. How much happier would everyone have been?

Wow, so far a rare ChiefsPlanet consensus.

Well, considering that the guys that went ahead of us include 6 WR's, 1 TE and 1 Return Specialist, it's not a surprise. We had already drafted a Wr and weren't likely to draft another.

The only guy on that list CP might have gone after in that spot is McCauley.

The Tank. We need DLine help in the worst way.

They were already committed to ditching Sims/Hicks

I think they might have gone Jay Alford. I heard they were pretty high on him.

I was thinking Jay Alford as well. He's more of a CP type bust-pick than tyler.

If that is true then I am glad the deal didn't go down. Alford is a little light, especially if we put McBride inside.

However, I should mention this.

The Rams have needed a solid DL for a very long time, and this year DT was one of their worst needs.

If that Dante Hall pick doesn't happen, Rams get a shot at Tank first, a shot they very likely could have taken.

So we got a great break in this third round pick. Haven't been this excited about our 3rd rounder since, well, the Brodie Croyle pick last year was a steal, too...

Look who's jumping on the bandwagon now.

I'd have rather gotten the 4th and drafted Doug Free.
