trade some picks (we have 9) to move up to the second round...

Man, I hope you're correct. We need a defensive stud at some point. Quality is better than quantity at this point.

How about Mario Fatafehi, the best pass-rushing DT in the draft?

A guy like Torrence Marshall might be there as well.

I agree on Fatafehi! That guy would look great in the Red & Gold.

Torrance Marshall will probably be available in the 3rd or 4th round. Again, another good addition to our D - though ILB is not as much a need as OLB is (Maz v Bush)

We will probably trade some more of our picks to St Louis for a ball washer and a couple kicking tees....

If Marshall is available anywhere on the board within the Chiefs' selection distance, we are insane not to draft him. Marshall is a future Seau.

Fatafehi is a third round calliber player in this year's draft.

Carl just stated, clearly, on KMBZ that the Chiefs would look to move up into the mid/late second round if there was a player available that we have targetted.

Draft notes: Positive drug tests could cost Sooners' Marshall, Gators' Capel

Tell Len your opinion!

One of the fastest-rising players in the final weeks leading up to the draft, Oklahoma linebacker Torrance Marshall could see his stock affected somewhat by a positive marijuana test at the NFL combine workouts two months ago, a situation of which all teams are now aware.

Marshall is regarded as a solid second-round prospect, a terrific athlete with good size (6-feet-1 7/8, 250 pounds) and movement skills, and a defender who can go sideline to sideline. There was some speculation that Marshall might even squeeze into the bottom portion of the first round, should a team like the New York Giants or Baltimore Ravens reach for a prospect.

It remains to be seen how much, if at all, teams back off Marshall because of the indiscretion.

Florida wide receiver John Capel was red-flagged for what one league official termed a steroid "derivative." Capel is a world-class sprinter who caught only nine passes in his Gators career.

Shaun Rogers would be a good guy to get if we decide to trade up...

Marshall positive for marijuana? Wasn't that why Warren Sapp fell to the Bucs?

Looks like if we move uo it won't be by much. At this point we are all probably just looking for something to be happy about on draft day, no matter how meager.

Vermeil and Green need to show us something good this year and they need to do it early in the season.

04-21-2001, 04:57 PM
Agreed; I don't see much gained by trading up now. Will be interesting to see who's still available at #75 and #77.

There goes Caver to the Eagles.
