and it started at 7:30 am here in Cali and I can only get the picks through the 4 via ESPN.

Thanks in advance (if you could provide a short assessment as well it would be appreciated).

3 13(76) Brad Cottam TE TENNESSEE

Cotam needs to learn to play with better leverage, which comes as no shock considering he's 6-foot-7. He doesn't show great athletic ability as a pass-catcher. However, he has the size to develop into an excellent in-line blocker and has the strong hands to develop into a reliable possession receiver.

The only real mystery??? Why this guy, did I miss something this off-season did we go ahead and release our blocking TEs?

3 10(73) Jamaal Charles RB TEXAS

He isn't a power back who will push the pile in short-yardage situations, and he's not big enough to anchor in pass protection, either. However, he's very explosive, can make defenders miss in the open field and he can go the distance when he hits the seam. In addition, he flashes a strong stiff-arm when he gets into space.


3 13(76) Brad Cottam TE TENNESSEE

Cotam needs to learn to play with better leverage, which comes as no shock considering he's 6-foot-7. He doesn't show great athletic ability as a pass-catcher. However, he has the size to develop into an excellent in-line blocker and has the strong hands to develop into a reliable possession receiver.


3 19(82) DaJuan Morgan S NORTH CAROLINA ST

Morgan doesn't have prototypical range, so he can't play a centerfielder-type role. He also has limitations in man coverage. However, he has great instincts, rarely gets caught out of position and plays the ball well. He should also make an immediate impact on special teams covering kicks.


4 6(105) William Franklin WR MISSOURI
Franklin has had some problems staying healthy and occasionally drops passes he should catch, but he does have a good combination of size and speed.


5 5(140) Brandon Carr CB GRAND VALLEY ST
He has good size for a cornerback with good athletic ability and decent speed, but he will struggle against quicker receivers.


6 4(170) Barry Richardson OT CLEMSON
His lack of a mean streak is a concern. He should be a better drive blocker for a player with his size. That being said, he moves well for his size and has long arms to ride edge rushers past the pocket.


6 16(182) Kevin Robinson WR UTAH STATE

Robinson isn't fast enough to stretch the field and he's going to get pushed around by physical corners. However, he shows good body control and he isn't afraid to go over the middle. He's also an effective return man who should make immediate contributions on special teams.

They got the best defensive player in the draft and stocked up on a lot of very talented football players. A few more years of drafting this smart and we'll have a kick ass roster to replace the bare cupboard Vermeil left us with.

He should command double-teams and the Chiefs become better up the middle instantly. There were some concerns about problems with Dorsey's tibia stress fracture, which may have been the reason he was still on the board at this point. His best traits are outstanding agility and a great motor. </TD></TR><TR class=drafted-data-row-alt _extended="true"><TD _extended="true"></TD><TD _extended="true">Round 1 (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-round|round-1), Pick 15 (15) (From Lions)</TD><TD _extended="true">Branden Albert (http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/branden-albert?id=660)</TD><TD _extended="true">OG (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-position|pos-ol)</TD><TD _extended="true">6'6"</TD><TD _extended="true">309</TD><TD _extended="true">Virginia (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-college|college-8)</TD></TR><TR class="drafted-data-row-alt id=" _extended="true" #players-grid-table-by-team-analysis-row-660?><TD colSpan=2 _extended="true"></TD><TD colSpan=5 _extended="true">Pick Analysis:Albert has the versatility to play guard or tackle in the NFL. He finishes blocks down the field and in space. He started 37 games (35 games at left guard, two at left tackle) for Virginia over three years. Has great overall athletic ability for a big man and could develop into the best offensive lineman in the draft.</TD></TR><TR class=drafted-data-row _extended="true"><TD _extended="true"></TD><TD _extended="true">Round 2 (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-round|round-2), Pick 4 (35)</TD><TD _extended="true">Brandon Flowers (http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/brandon-flowers?id=754)</TD><TD _extended="true">CB (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-position|pos-cb)</TD><TD _extended="true">5'10"</TD><TD _extended="true">189</TD><TD _extended="true">Virginia Tech (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-college|college-28)</TD></TR><TR class="drafted-data-row id=" _extended="true" #players-grid-table-by-team-analysis-row-754?><TD colSpan=2 _extended="true"></TD><TD colSpan=5 _extended="true">Pick Analysis:With better speed, Flowers would have been a much higher pick.

He likely fell to the third round due to his lack of strength, but when it comes to speed, he's a break-away back. His playmaking ability makes him a potential situational player that can also catch the ball.</TD></TR><TR class=drafted-data-row _extended="true"><TD _extended="true"></TD><TD _extended="true">Round 3 (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-round|round-3), Pick 13 (76) (From Lions)</TD><TD _extended="true">Brad Cottam (http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/brad-cottam?id=1972)</TD><TD _extended="true">TE (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-position|pos-te)</TD><TD _extended="true">6'8"</TD><TD _extended="true">270</TD><TD _extended="true">Tennessee (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-college|college-86)</TD></TR><TR class="drafted-data-row id=" _extended="true" #players-grid-table-by-team-analysis-row-1972?><TD colSpan=2 _extended="true"></TD><TD colSpan=5 _extended="true">Pick Analysis:Cottam's problem was the fact that he only started 10 games in five years at Tennessee. He has very impressive size and skills for a tight end to go with speed in the 4.6's. The Chiefs may be looking for a future starter with Tony Gonzalez nearing the end of his career.</TD></TR><TR class=drafted-data-row-alt _extended="true"><TD _extended="true"></TD><TD _extended="true">Round 3 (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-round|round-3), Pick 19 (82) (From Vikings)</TD><TD _extended="true">DaJuan Morgan (http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/dajuan-morgan?id=2013)</TD><TD _extended="true">S (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-position|pos-s)</TD><TD _extended="true">6'0"</TD><TD _extended="true">205</TD><TD _extended="true">North Carolina State (http://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker#tab:dt-by-college|college-6)</TD></TR><TR class="drafted-data-row-alt id=" _extended="true" #players-grid-table-by-team-analysis-row-2013?><TD colSpan=2 _extended="true"></TD><TD colSpan=5 _extended="true">Pick Analysis:Morgan was a one-year starter and raw, but has good athletic ability and potential.

we didn't fix our OL for next year, and now we risk not being 8-8

i organized a group of douchebag true fans to protest such flagrant displays of value drafting....we logged in under various noob monikers - like kcjohnny - and let everyone know how unhappy we were about drafting so many great players and starters when we could have reached for OL with every pick...

we were cool...no one would admit it, but we were....
