As a continuation of the series, I now present the Middle Ages of the Carl regime.

Who drafts better, him or a random monkey or a random chicken?

I've gone back and looked at the Chiefs draft from 1996 through 2001. 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.

Subtract TG and that is one sorry list.

I went with Carl in 1996, 1997, and 1998. The chicken wins in 1999, and the monkey wins in 2000 and 2001. Overall, I have to go with Carl on the strength of Tony Gonzalez and a very strong 1996 draft.
