View Full Version : NFL Draft Herm out-scouted the entire NFL.

Say that out loud. Or just type it out.

It's truly amazing what they did. They out-scouted the entire NFL not just in rookies, but in what other teams wanted and were looking for (note how they beat the Eagles to Albert). They out-scouted them with small school players, they out-scouted Draft experts, they out-scouted everybody.

Merritt's the perfect example. Everybody who heard about Central Florida watched their games for Kevin Smith. But the Chiefs watched the games, and they came away with a high opinion of a blocking tight end with a massive frame that nobody else in the NFL even acknowledged existed.

Carr as a 5th rounder looks like amazing value for one of the best CBs to have played in DII over the last decade or so, and has the measurables to compete in the NFL.

This is just a great weekend for Chiefs fans. A time not to just enjoy your team but to be proud of them. Who the hell knew Herm was capable of this?

Hey, I liked our Draft!

I didn't like the Albert pick and I thought the Flowers pick was risky, but I believe our Draft was above average and one of the best in the entire league!

Jackass.

I'm scouting you and taking all your pet choices in next year's mock.

You know.. its not just Herm. I think the chiefs just put a lot more effort into scouting than usual this year. As a whole.. not just him.

Well, you would be wrong.

It's been made public that Clark Hunt handed the keys of the draft (and possibly the franchise) over to Herm.

This was HIS draft. Not "Hot" Carl's. Not Kuharich.

Herm's.

Wow I'm really liking some of our picks. I was most curious/disappointed about the DE part of the draft. However after reading this tidbit about our 7th round DE I'm very curious what will happen. If only KC had a tradition of developing these small school DE's....:D Athletic numbers seem interesting...well that and 1/3 of his tackles last year were behind the line of scrimmage(24/74).

Gardner-Webb product Brian Johnston, a rising prospect for this April's NFL Draft, wowed scouts at his first workout Saturday. Working out at San Diego State for a handful of NFL scouts, Johnston showed exactly why he is one of the top defensive end prospects heading into April's annual draft. Measuring in at 6-foot-5, 274 pounds, Johnston ran his first 40-yard dash in 4.66 seconds. Johnston's 40-yard dash time would have been the fourth best at the NFL combine for defensive ends, and the best for any lineman weighing more than 260 pounds. Johnston's most impressive stat from the 40-yard dash came with a very strong 1.51-second time through the first 10 yards, an important time with regards to a players quickness. By comparison, Johnston's 10-yard split was the same as Arkansas' running back Darren McFadden turned in at the Combine earlier this year. Johnston pulled off an impressive 35-inch vertical leap as well on Saturday, which would have ranked second among defensive linemen at the NFL Scouting Combine - and best for a player of his size. The most impressive result overall, however, may have been Johnston's time in the 20-yard shuttle. He turned in a 4.18-second time, which is better than any lineman at the NFL's Scouting Combine. In fact, the 4.18-second time was faster than any running back at the event - with Illinois' Rashard Mendenhall the only back to match that time. - Shelby Star

I'm a little cynical because of the last 20 years but that was a good weekend for the Chiefs.

I'd say day 1 was as good as they could get. 3 guys that'll start. Few teams get that. Of course, you need to be a 4-12 teams to find 3 starters in the draft.

The other 9 picks will undoubtedly get some practice teams guys. Maybe 2 will make the team. Which begs the question: Why not trade 5 of those picks for Jason Taylor?

I'll bet at most 2 of them don't make the team in some capacity. 10 of these guys make the squad, IMO (possibly even 11).

All of the first 6 make the squad. Franklin and Robertson make it as a slot WR and KR respectively.

So of Richardson, Carr, Merrit and the DE (Anderson?) I think 2 of 'em make the squad, 2 don't. My guess would be that Merrit and Carr don't make the cut, but it's close on Carr.

The best thing Herm and Co did was draft Johnston in the 7th. I'm sure he reads the Planet and knows it doesn't matter who goes first as long as there is some long shot we can root for like Joe Hall, Terd, and so on.

OK everyone take a breath. We haven't won anything yet there is NO idea how ANY of these guys will turn out. Tennessee which I thought had the worst draft in recent history could turn out to be the big winner.

So far the draft picks while I really like them have just been good picks thay have yet to touch the field. I also would like everyone in the draft room to get credit as Herm was just one voice. This will be his first really good draft as far as we can tell.

Merritt will be given every chance to be the blocking TE since there really isn't another option.

Carry three tight ends - Gonzalez, Cottam, Merritt. However, if Cottam can develop his blocking skills, he kills all need of a third, blocking TE.

Herm really likes Carr and I bet he makes the 53 man roster on physical ability alone.

With the depth situation at DE, I really wonder if Johnston makes it as a situational pass-rusher.

Richardson is a lock, IMO. Big guy that just needs a little motivation.

They may be with the team but they are not starters.

The 2006 draft produced Hali and Page and maybe Croyle if he pans out.

2007 we got Bowe and thats it.

The rest are now backups. And in the 2008 3rd round we took more backups.

2008 - picking that high we have to get some quality staarters and looks like we got 4 good ones and a couple of maybes.

So if the Chiefs knew what everyone else wanted and they found a kid that no one else knew existed, why did they waste a 7th round pick on him instead of bringing him in as an undrafted free agent and using the pick on someone that another NFL team might compete for?

I was just playing because of the bad logic in the post. If they knew what everyone else was doing and knew that no one else had heard of our last pick (both of which are alleged in the post), than there was no reason to use one of the picks on him.

I think they did a great job in the draft, but the logic in the post was a bit silly.

Congrats on a nice draft. I was just reading on Yahoo that a dark spot on Dorsey's leg x-ray gave some NFL doctors concern that it might be more than a stress fracture. Read somewhere else that it might be something that requires surgery down the line.
They said that was why Dorsey fell to #5.
Of course just because you read it on the intertubes doesn't necessarily mean its true.

Guess I should have quoted the article since I don't seem to be able to typw without putting my foot in my mouth. I like the parts about Mssrs. Nagurski, Lombardi and Outland:

"So I don't know what we should believe about Glenn Dorsey's leg. Mr. X-ray machine is probably not lying about the dark spot on the X-ray, and some GMs are concerned about it, according to STLtoday.com. Dorsey says he suffered a stress fracture there in his junior year when he banged it against something in the weight room, but that he played two years with the injury, and it never bothered him.

He also suffered a sprain of the right knee last year, but again, he never missed a game, and says it's not an issue. Backing Dorsey up on this are the Nagurski (best defensive player), Lombardi (best lineman or linebacker), and Outland (best interior lineman) awards on his mantle.

Two things concern me about Dorsey. One, it's a stress fracture, and Dorsey says he suffered it while banging into something in the weight room. That's not what a stress fracture is. Stress fractures are caused by repetitive motions.

And two, there were too many times last year where Dorsey went for long stretches of a game being pretty blockable. He made as many spectacular, eye-popping plays as any defensive lineman you can mention, but there were also a lot of times when he'd disappear for a good stretch of the game."

Funny to say Herm out-scouted the rest of the NFL when the reason we are thrilled is that the Chiefs for once picked according to consensus/composite draft boards. We had a good draft because for ONCE we didn't TRY to out-scout the rest of the NFL. Someone, and I am guessing Clark Hunt, was able to hold Carl's ego in check, and not let him **** it up with his genius.

Right. I wasn't crazy about Albert -- I think he's a great player, I just didn't think he was worth it for us. But then again, I always reserve the right to be wrong.

I was also sketchy about the Flowers pick. I graded him as 1st round talent, but then he emerged as a very serious character concern.

Couldn't complain about the Dorsey pick.

Right. Mecca and I have disagreed with this for a couple days now, and it's a well taken point.

Mecca says the guy's clean, it was a stupid prank, it's not like he was hurting anybody.

I say, on the other side, that the picture was put up during Draft season and exhibits some extremely bad decision-making.

If he keeps his nose clean, and if Albert makes a good conversion to OT, this was a grand slam.

Say that out loud. Or just type it out.

It's truly amazing what they did. They out-scouted the entire NFL not just in rookies, but in what other teams wanted and were looking for (note how they beat the Eagles to Albert). They out-scouted them with small school players, they out-scouted Draft experts, they out-scouted everybody.

Merritt's the perfect example. Everybody who heard about Central Florida watched their games for Kevin Smith. But the Chiefs watched the games, and they came away with a high opinion of a blocking tight end with a massive frame that nobody else in the NFL even acknowledged existed.

Carr as a 5th rounder looks like amazing value for one of the best CBs to have played in DII over the last decade or so, and has the measurables to compete in the NFL.

This is just a great weekend for Chiefs fans. A time not to just enjoy your team but to be proud of them. Who the hell knew Herm was capable of this?
While that's all nice and everything. The bottom line is..
Can they play?

I don't really know what to make of Allan.

The guy seemed to play well in last year's preseason. Made a few really hard catches.

Only explanation I can think of is that the Chiefs are going to be running a buttload of 2-TE sets and they need as many as four TEs to keep the offense fresh.

Tony G -- #1 receiver, can block
Cottam -- #2 receiver, can block
Allan -- pure receiver
Merritt -- #1 blocker

Hopefully we'll never see the team in a situation again where Dorsey is in the position to catch a TD.

Herm is one of the best at evaluating talent, period. He just isn't a HC.

Yeah, I'd rather have Dorsey lined up in an I-formation. ;)

Um, Michael Allan?

I thought about that as well, but Michael Allan is only really comparable to Cottam and they aren't going to take Allan over the third rounder IMO.

Merritt could be VERY valuable in Gailey's offense, as has been noted here.

I think Allan is the odd man out right now.

Just wet flurries, nothing is going to stick. In fact, it has turned to just a drizzle now. Gotta cover the tulips up tonight though, it is supposed to freeze!

Yeah dude, it snowed here on Saturday for like 4 damn hours :cuss:. It was a high of thirty ****ing three. I was pretty furious. 75 and sunny now though:)

Allan probably won't be on the team, generally to carry a TE that is a pure receiver like that he has to be great at getting open and creating mismatches....

I would love to see what's your pick-by-pick grade, like I provided mine at this thread. (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=183909&page=3)

Put it this way.....

As Direckshun told me, I'm pretty much married to this draft class at this point, if these guys don't pan out I'll never hear the end of it.

None of this has changed my mind about Hermoine or CP. In fact, it reinforces my firm belief that Hermine belongs in a scouting role. Nevertheless, this was a fabulous draft for the Chiefs. Tons of talent at key positions and, from all accounts, great value in the lower rounds. For a Chiefs fan, this was probably the highest point in the last several years. I'm looking forward to seeing how these guys perform. I pray that at least a couple of these guys kick Donk ass for us for years to come.

So you're going to have to defend this draft class all season? That will be quite a turn around.

When you talk about guys like DaJuan Morgan and Barry Richardson in January and then the team actually drafts them...

Hermoine? You're in the wrong thread.
