Okay, I've gone back and looked at the Chiefs draft from 1989 through 1995. I have compiled the Chiefs' actual draft, and then I have compiled two additional drafts where we can assume that a monkey and a pecking chicken randomly selected players from among the next nine picks after Carl's pick (or possibly Carl's pick).*

They are posted below, and we'll have a poll asking whose draft you would prefer: Carl's, the monkey's, or the chicken's.

*Occasionally the figure is less than ten picks for a couple of database reasons that I was too lazy to fix.

Here are the drafts. In each row, we have the year, the pick number, followed by Carl's pick, the monkey's pick, and the chicken's pick. In the case of the monkey and the chicken, I also include the team that actually did draft that player.

Wow. I am so not reading all of that. How long did that take you to compile?

Not very long, actually. I came up with a nifty way to automate it all.

I went with the monkey in 1989, 1990, and 1991, and it looked like the monkey was going to run away with it. However, Carl came back and won 1992, 1993, 1994, and 1995, shutting out the chicken and rallying to beat the monkey.

I have to call Carl the winner in the early years, though the monkey was a very close second.

How does Carl not win the 1990 draft?

Grunhard and Szott vs. Who?

That's 2 KC Ring of Famers, right?

1989 - Carl wins
1990 - Carl wins
1991 - Monkey wins
1992 - Carl wins
1993 - Carl wins
1994 - Monkey wins
1995 - Chicken wins
1989 through 1995 - Carl wins

Too much reading. No can read this much now.

I'll ask more directly...

I went with the monkey in ... 1990...
Why so?

I'll ask more directly...

Why so?

The monkey picked up three effective starters, versus two for Carl. The monkey got Turnbull in the first (8 years, 1 pro bowl), Barry Foster in the fourth (5 years, 2 pro bowls), and Justin Strzelczyk in the 11th (nine years, 0 pro bowls).

Carl got Grunhard in the 2nd (11 seasons, 1 pro bowl), and Dave Szott (14 seasons, 0 pro bowls). Graham was a starter for a couple of years too, I think.

It's close, but I think Strzelczyk more or less cancels out Szott, and Turnbull and Foster beat Grunhard.
