Okay, maybe interesting is too strong a word.


In the 2001 draft, the Chiefs' first pick was in the third round. With the 75th pick, we chose defensive tackle Eric Downing, who was a rock for us in the middle for almost...well, never.

Two picks later, with the 77th pick, we chose Starvin' Marvin Minnis, the skinniest player ever to play professional football.

So an inquiring mind might ask, "Who was the guy in the middle of these two picks? And was he disappointed to not be drafted by us?"

Well, have no fear, because the fellow drafted with the 76th pick, going to the Buffalo Bills, was defensive tackle Ron Edwards.

Fascinating.

Oh, and fire Herm and Carl.

He's played far better than the other two..leave it to the Chiefs **** up getting the one player there that might have actually been good for us

Heh. Edwards would have flunked out of the NFL being developed by DV's circus defensive staff.

What sucks is that we narrowly missed out on Steve W. Smif'.

Yeah.

He faded from the scene pretty quickly, but I still remember one beautiful diving reception he made against Oakland prior to beginning his career in insurance sales.

You know what is even more sad about that we could have traded one of those and 4th and got Shaun Rogers. That was what Detroit did to get him in the 2nd.

Oh well that was a crappy draft. I liked Trent Green alot but DV could screw off IMO. I wanted Drew Brees and Shaun Rogers and without those 2 we could have gotten both. :banghead:
