Good post. 91 was a bad draft.

12-23-2008, 03:29 PM
this shit has been done to fuggin death.

12-23-2008, 03:33 PM
Ugh. I hate this thread.

12-23-2008, 03:36 PM
But Marty would still make a very good GM! Wait, huh?

12-23-2008, 03:38 PM
1997 and 1998 other than TG when Marty had control were utter dog shit...


12-23-2008, 03:39 PM
Kawika Mitchell? Really?

12-23-2008, 03:41 PM
Kawika Mitchell? Really?

He is a starter and still playing?

Maybe not the greatest player out there? But if he is starting something is right?:shrug:

12-23-2008, 03:42 PM
There were some good draft picks in the early years - McNair, Szott, Grunhard, Snow and Carter.

12-23-2008, 03:45 PM
it's really best to not think about such horrible things...

12-23-2008, 03:46 PM
There were some good draft picks in the early years - McNair, Szott, Grunhard, Snow and Carter.

Yep there are some good ones there but there are also so some really bad ones to....

What? Snow? You don't like scooters?

12-23-2008, 03:48 PM
Kawika Mitchell? Really?

That guy didn't deserve all the shit he got...he was no elite LB but a good solid LB that would be a benefit to us right now.

He has a superbowl ring with the Giants and just yesterday game up with a clutch INT in the redzone against Denver in the 4th qtr.

12-23-2008, 03:48 PM
Yep there are some good ones there but there are also so some really bad ones to....

What team could you not say that about with drafting in the NFL?

12-23-2008, 03:50 PM
I would have put Gary Stills in italics. But who really gives a shit?

12-23-2008, 03:54 PM
This has put me in such a good mood, I think I'll go out and enjoy the weather!! Maybe a nap in a snowdrift....

So, according to my opinion, the King has only drafted a handful of what we could call "Good players". 3 of them I'd say are sure bets to go into the hall of fame.

25 players on my list that I like that Carl drafted. first off, D.T., Tony G, and Will Shields are his best draft picks. Jared Allen is definately his 4th best draft pick ever. He looks like a DE that is going to make lots of trips to the probowl in the future. I put Donnie Edwards as Carls 5th best draft pick ever. My reason is, longevity and consistent production. He managed to play a healthy 10-12 in the NFL, and was pretty consistent and solid through those seasons. Wasn't a sure probowler but definately not far off from one.

I'd have to simply say here's how I'd rank Carls picks in order:

1. D.T.-Sure Hall of famer and was the cornerstone and piece to this franchise for years. Definately a difference maker and key to the defense in turning this franchise around in the early '90s.

2. Tony G-Well, what can we say? Mr. Consistency at its finest. Constant production year after year. Very fortunate to stay healthy throughout his career. Blessed in that regard. He is at #2 for sure. A great attitude, with good work ethic on a bad team. but the numbers speak. 10 probowls and more to come.

3. Will Shields-Defined the guard position.. A true anchor and probowler there. Numbers speak for Big Wille multiple trips to the probowl year after year he was there. Was a true iron man, and consistent at what he did. Played at a probowl level till his mid 30's.

4. Jared Allen-Has blossomed into a pure legit passrusher. Definately one of the leagues best. A true gem found in the 4th. He'll be making trips to Hawaii for years.

5. Donnie Edwards-once again. longevity, ability to stay healthy and consistently produce throughout his career.

6. Tim grunnard-Loved grunny was a solid starting center for us for a good 10 seasons. imo one of the best lineman to play during the Kings era. definately deserves top 10 consideration.

7. Dave Szott-another good Olineman that played solid football during the kings era. szott was a mauler at guard and an anchor there for 10 years. If there is one thing the king did right, he definately built one of the best interior lines in football in Shields, grunny, szott.

8. Larry Johnson-I put him in the top 10. Would be ranked higher if it wasn't for his off the field problems that is somewhat affecting his career. I won't take away what he did those 2 years where he looked like arguably one of the best RB's in the game. 1,700 yard season w/20 TD and to follow the year after with 1,400 yards and 15 TD.

9. John Tait-I can't argue here. He is still playing some good football. not a probowler thats for sure but a solid Olineman that can start on most teams in the league. Hes been consistent and healthy.

10. Dwayne Bowe-Id put him higher it's just that hes still early in his career. Definately though looks like someone who can produce for the Chiefs for years to come.

11. Joe Horn-if it wasnt for that incident where he cheated with Roafs wife I'd rank him higher. definately had his times in the league where many could say he was one of the leagues best WR's.

12. Jerome Woods-solid player. not a probowler but sure close to it earlier in his career. he had his good years from '97-'03. injuries were the downfall to his career.

13. Reggie Tongue-solid starting strong safety for a good 5 years in the league.

14. Derrick Johnson-solid. expectations of the next derrick brooks are far off. not a probowler due to his inconsistency. but a solid player.

15. Dustin Colquitt-good snag for the chiefs in the 3rd. i have him ranked here because of the position he plays.

16. Dale Carter-good solid CB in his time. off field issues killed his career.

17. Brandon Albert-looks like a promising LT of the future. still too early in his career to be considered one of carl better draft picks.

18. Brandon Flowers-same as albert

19. Dante Hall-Had to put him in there. I can't take away what he did for us on ST during the Vermeil era.

20. John Browning-solid reserve lineman in his career. good depth guy and good value in the 3rd rd

21. Brandon Carr-good snag in the 5th. a little inconsistent, but may be worth having long term. a typical project type player imo.

22. Scott Fujita-average lber in the league. still starting. so he is doing something right?

23. Kawika Mitchell-won a SB with the giants and is starting on decent bills team. best football came after the chiefs. definately worthy of being considered in the top 25.

24. Jarrad Page-same as brandon carr

25. Herb Taylor-great depth player on the oline. surprised he isn't starting?

12-23-2008, 04:11 PM
noone gives a shit.

12-23-2008, 04:13 PM
noone gives a shit.

Dude, what's your problem?

12-23-2008, 04:18 PM
Dude, what's your problem?

12-23-2008, 04:19 PM
noone gives a shit.

so then get the f**k out of the thread no ones telling you to post.

12-23-2008, 04:20 PM
Good post. 91 was a bad draft.

Just 91?

12-23-2008, 04:35 PM
if i were ambitious enought, I'd like to see how many D lineman we drafted compared to those who were actually legit starters etc..

12-23-2008, 05:03 PM
Dude if you are going to rank them out. Dale Carter should be higher than guys like DJ and Woods, Carter started fucking pro bowls.
