You're the Chiefs. You have 3 veteran players who have openly expressed desire to move on at one time since the new regime has taken over. TG, LJ, and BW. All three are over 30 or pushing 30 very hard. All three have something left in the tank, and 2 of those 3 want and deserve a chance to go to the Super Bowl.

Philadelphia has a pretty fair team in place. Their biggest needs are a TE, LT, RB to pair with Westbrook, and they could also use more help on the O-line.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/story/11519168

Chiefs have the #3 overall pick worth 2200 points. A LT could very well be on the board at that #3 pick. Lions go Stafford, and either Smith or Monroe is guaranteed to be there at #3.

Philadelphia has 12 picks in the draft whose total point value is 2199. Philly calls and offers all 12 picks for pick #3, TG, LJ, and BW. A possible conditional pick in the draft is offered next year as well. 3rd rounder if they make the playoffs, 2nd rounder if they make the NFC Championship, 1st rounder if they make the Super Bowl.

18 overall picks for the Chiefs in this draft with which to use and/or manuver for position in this draft or next years draft, with another potential draft pick next year depending on how well the Eagles do.

2 1st rounders... 21 and 28
1 2nd rounder... 53
2 3rd rounders... 67 and 85
2 4th rounders... 102 and 121
5 5th rounders... 139, 141, 153, 157, and 159
3 6th rounders... 175, 194, and 195
3 7th rounders... 212, 230, and Mr. Irrelavent


Philly is probably a serious player in the NFC with the deal. KC can do some serious building and add finishing touches in next years draft. Do you do the deal?

Use some picks to manuver up in this draft, or trade them for picks in next years draft. NE has a history of stockpiling draft picks in the following draft. Always seems to keep them ahead of the game too.

True. But I had a few minutes time to spare, and was looking at trade scenarios for LJ, TG, and BW and trade down scenarios for the Chiefs in the 1st round. They all came up Philly, so I just put them all together.

I wouldn't do it. If we got to keep our 3rd overall pick, then, yes, it's a strong consideration, but giving up 3 former PBers AND the top pick sounds like we get bent over. We've already got plenty of average role players, we need QUALITY added to the equation. Like it or not, everyone of those players is a STARTER on our team. We'd be giving up FOUR starters for a roll of the dice in an average draft.

It's funny how the trades get crazier and crazier the closer we get to the draft.

Yeah, but we could fill in a lot of the gaps with these selections in what you term an average draft. And if the Eagles would parlay this into a Super Bowl appearance, that would give us two chips in next years first round, where we could very well add two marquee type players to set off the players selected this year... and last year.

Interesting scenario, but the Eagles tend to get rid of players past thier prime....not bring in 3 of them at once.

Its interesting if it came up. Its just not realistic at all. I think I would do the trade if it came up though. 12 picks for LJ, TG, BW? yes sir.

Wow! Check out this from a piece by Gretz this monrning over at kcchiefs.com...


In the last nine drafts, the Patriots acquired 54 selections, while trading away 55 picks.

Belichick/Pioli made multiple deals in every draft but their first on with the Patriots in 2000. In the 2003 Draft alone, the Patriots:

Acquired: picks No. 13, 36, 41, 45, 75, 78, 117, 120, 154, 164, 201, 239, 243, DT Ted Washington and four choices in the 2004 Draft.

Dealt: picks No. 14, 19, 41, 50, 75, 78, 81, 120, 128, 140, 154, 157, 193, 225.

When the smoke cleared, the Patriots had Washington, 10 players selected in the ‘03 Draft including DT Ty Warren, CB Asante Samuel and C Dan Koppen, plus the four draft choices in ‘04. From those ‘04 picks New England got DT Vince Wilfork and picked up RB Corey Dillon in a trade.

All the evidence means this: expect some wheeling and dealing when it comes to the Chiefs and the 2009 NFL Draft. It’s the way of the league.

Thoughts on the Chiefs Draft:

Forgive me if this all seems like common sense to you, but I wanted to logically lay out why I think the Chiefs will be the most exciting team to watch on draft day this year. You are free to skip to the bottom of the post to see the likely trade partners:

Given the history of Scott Pioli I believe the Chiefs are trying everything in their power to trade down. Pioli likes to have “Patriot-Type” players and enough of them to create good competition and depth at every position on the field. I believe Haley feels the same way. Haley will likely focus more on offense than Pioli who will focus on Defense first. Aside from that minor difference, I believe both of them are focused on acquiring the best of these types of players.

There are three paths to acquiring more of these “Patriot-Type” players, drafting or signing rookies, signing veteran free agents, or making trades. The Chiefs have traded for veteran Matt Cassell and may trade for more, but I believe are unlikely to do so prior to the draft because there are not any “Patriot-Type” first tier players on the block. There are not any first tier “Patriot-Type” free agents available either. Therefore, the Chiefs must acquire as many of these players as possible through the draft.

Regardless of the value of the players acquired in the draft, I believe the Chiefs will want these younger players over econd tier “Patriot-Type” players. Second tier players can be acquired after the draft to fill the holes that are left over.

Given the restrictions listed above, to acquire as many “Patriot-Type” players as possible the Chiefs must acquire as many draft picks as possible. More picks can only be acquired by trading down, trading veterans or trading future draft choices. The Chiefs are building for the long haul, therefore, I don’t believe they will trade away many future draft choices.

This leaves trading down or trading veterans as the avenues to more choices. The Chiefs have a few veterans with significant trade value (3rd round or above): Brian Watters, Tony Gonzalez, Tyler Thigpen maybe, Larry Johnson maybe. There are a few other that might be traded for some late round picks such as Brody Croyle. I believe the Chiefs will use two criteria (other than the obvious value of the pick they would receive) to decide whether to trade or keep these veterans. The length of time they believe a player has left in the league and more importantly whether they believe he is a “Patriot-type” player.

Brian Watters obviously has not impressed the Chiefs as a “Patriot-type” player since Haley arrived, but he has a good body of work. However, coupling his run in with coach Haley with his years in the league, I believe the Chiefs will try to move him for a second (if we are lucky) or third round pick.

Tony Gonzalez is obviously an amazing talent with great leadership on the field. His recent statements about wanting to play for a contender and the value he might bring make him a serious potential trade. Balancing this against what he could provide a young team in leadership and his amazing fitness (he might play for five more years) means that the Chiefs will move him if they can get good value (Top of the 3rd to bottom of the 1st ). I know this is more than they were looking for last year, but Pioli and Haley have higher football IQ’s than Carl and Herm.

Larry Johnson may have little to no trade value given his recent stupidity. However, he does have some upside staying with the Chiefs now that he is cheaper and seems motivated to make that check. He is obviously not a “Patriots-Type” player and he may have limited years left in the league given the riding Herm gave him. Therefore I think the Chiefs keep him with the threat of cutting him unless they get offered a 3rd round pick or higher.

Tyler Thigpen has decent trade value now given what he did last year. However, that was a limited data set to work with in less than ideal conditions with the Chiefs. I believe the Chiefs think he is a “Patriots-Type” player and they like the amount of time he has left in the league, but they are not sure if he can play in their system. Unless someone offers a 3rd round pick or higher, the Chiefs will keep him to encourage competition and provide depth.

Given these four scenarios, I will bet that the Chiefs get at least two of these veterans traded and end up with two extra 3rd round picks or a second and a third if Gonzo goes. Getting back a second and getting another 3rd are nice, but they don’t add up to picking in the lower first round (I don’t think the Chiefs will trade up given all the needs they have).

This leaves trading down as the only other avenue to acquire picks on draft day. When you look at which picks the Chiefs have been interviewing and had in for visits it leads you to believe they think they will be picking later in the first or in the second. Combine this with the history of the Patriots trying to acquire more picks for all the reasons stated above and I believe the Chiefs will trade down.

The attached draft value chart has been floating around the net for a couple of years and I believe reflects more accurately the value of the top picks. Add to that that I don’t believe that Pioli will ask for full value and I believe that the Chiefs will trade down for something less than the stated value of even this chart. This means that the Chiefs would accept a combination of picks and players that are close to the 2200 point value of their 3rd overall pick.

Which teams would want that pick? I believe there are three potential scenarios shaping up where teams would want this pick.

1. Teams that believe the tape over the workouts and want TexasTech WR Crabtree because they believe he can be truly elite as opposed to other players in this draft.
2. If Wake Forest LB Aaron Curry and Georgia QB Matthew Stafford go in the first two picks I believe there may be teams in love with one of the top tackles.
3. If Georgia QB Matthew Stafford and one other player go, I believe there may be teams willing to move up to get the USC QB Mark Sanchez.


Using the attached value chart, looking at the picks that teams have available, and understanding roughly their potential needs I believe that the following trades for the #3 overall pick are possible on draft day:

Likely Trade Scenarios:

Team Picks Point Value
Jacksonville #8, #39, #72, #107 2220
Cinci #6, #38, and #106 2202
Jacksonville #8, #39, #72 2140
Cinci #6 and #38 2120
Philly #8, #39, #53,#85, #121 2117
Philly #20, #27, #53, #85 2065
San Fran #10, #43, #74, #111 2062
Buffalo #11, #42, #75, #110 2019
Jacksonville #8, #39, #107 1990
San Fran #10, #43, #74 1990
Philly #20, #27, #53, #121 1952
Cinci #6, #70, #98 1948
Buffalo #11, #42, #75 1945
Jacksonville #8, #39 1910
Philly #20, #27, #53 1900

Notes on the likely trade scenarios:

• Teams do not like to give up half of their draft therefore it is likely that if one of the trades sending more than three picks occurred the Chiefs would have to give back some lower round picks.

• In my estimation Philly, Jacksonville, and Cincinnati may have more than a passing interest in Michael Crabtree. San Francisco and Buffalo could have their eyes on either the Sanchez or Crabtree. This by far the weakest part of my analysis so feel free to give any feedback that makes sense regarding the needs of these teams.

• Multiple trades are possible with Patriots, but the Patriots would need to include multiple second and third round picks something they are not likely to do unless a blockbuster trade with Tony Gonzalez, Brian Watters, or Tyler Thigpen Could be worked out.

• I considered Miami, Houston, and the New York Giants as potential trade partners but they did not have the picks this year to enter the bidding.

• I did not include trades that were much over the 2200 pt value of the pick because I just don’t think teams would give up that much.

• To that end I believe the most serious possibilites lie in the second half of this chart below 2000 pts. Teams might realistically add these picks to the mix.

• I also did not include the possibility of trading future picks.

• This scenario does not include the possibility of trading players to the Chiefs or including one of the players from the Chiefs to another team.

Given Pioli’s background, creativity, and lack of history with the current group of players it is likely that there will be players and future picks included at some point. Nonetheless this should give you some framework to judge the upcoming draft.

I also think it is likely that if the Chiefs can affect a trade with Jacksonville, Cinci, or San Francisco, they would move down once or twice more in the first round.

Philly is probably a serious player in the NFC with the deal. KC can do some serious building and add finishing touches in next years draft. Do you do the deal?

I reject this scenario because there is no way any one team would see all of the veterans on our team as worth having and no way any team will give up it's entire draft. (see what happened to Mike Ditka)
