Belichick disciples cloud top five; Draft audibles (http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/NFLDraft/Draft+Extras/2009/wwhi040809.htm)

By Nolan Nawrocki
April 8, 2009

With barely two weeks to go before the draft takes place, most teams have entered final draft meetings to properly set their boards before final character and medical meetings allow the board to bleed, as red strikes are crossed through names, draft cards are flipped upside down or removed altogether.
Virginia OLT Eugene Monroe

Virginia OLT Eugene Monroe
The top of the draft is beginning to shape up, with Matthew Stafford and a pair of blind-side protectors — Baylor’s Jason Smith and Virginia’s Eugene Monroe — all in heavy consideration at the top of the draft and expected to fit into the top five.

However, the presence of new Chiefs GM Scott Pioli and Browns head coach Eric Mangini — two tight-lipped, guarded Bill Belichick disciples — near the top of the draft order has left observers only guessing at what might happen in the top five, creating as much uncertainty at the top of the draft as ever.

There's a leaguewide perception that Aaron Curry is being prized by the Chiefs at No. 3 because he is such a safe choice. However, the way we hear it, the Chiefs will be in the big-man sweepstakes, with the new regime being driven by the need to draft someone who can protect new QB Matt Cassel and thereby enhance his chance of success.

If Stafford is selected first overall as expected, it would force either Smith or Monroe into the Chiefs’ hands. Monroe played for Al Groh, who worked with Pioli and new K.C. head coach Todd Haley previously in New York with the Jets, and shares a playing history with Chiefs OLT Branden Albert. Reuniting the two would be a very natural fit. If Smith happened to fall, the Chiefs could leave Albert on the left side and kick ORT Damion McIntosh inside to guard, significantly improving the pocket.

That's why Alex Mack is playing center for the Chiefs. We got the 18th and 24th from them for Larry, Tony and Brian.

We picked Monroe with the #3, Clint Sintim with the #18 and Alex Mack with the #24. Fortunately, Kraig Urbik was still on the board when we picked in the third round.

Four potential Hall of Fame guys now on the offensive line, and three of them in this draft.

One of two scenarios are at play.

Either KC does think Monroe is better than Albert and may be willing to flip them; or

They think Cincy or somebody else will want to move up and take Monroe so they are feigning interest.

It's as relevant and likely as the Chiefs picking Sanchez or Stafford, and you know it. Probably more so actually.

I would rather pick Monroe than Sanchez.

Think about this. When the Chiefs had the BEST offense in the NFL, they had Trent Green, Priest Holmes and Eddie Kennison at three of the most important positions on offense. All three were serviceable at best without a great offensive line.

Not my first choice, but I don't think it would be terrible.

He has no drive, he would get overpowered. He wouldn't open a hole all season. I wouldn't be worried about his quickness in passblocking, but he would get bullrushed straight into the qb constantly.

And they had ONE first round draft pick on the offensive line. ONE. And it wasnt' even ours. Will Shields, like ALOT of superior offensive guards, was a MID-ROUND PICK.

The idea that we'd move Albert, after the rookie season he had, is just preposterous. You don't fuck with potential greatness. Ever.

It has more to do with the fact that he's a terrible run blocker.

His lack of speed is another issue altogether.

McIntosh at guard = EPIC FAIL.

San Diego and Miami already tried to have him play guard and he failed. Besides we have Goff and Waters at guard no need to move McSuck there. I wish people would use their fucking brains on that.

Meanwhile Peyton Manning and the Colts have been successful for a decade, winning a lot more games than they've lost, winning playoff games, and winning the SB, all while having a mediocre or worse defense throughout.

The Steelers, last year, won a SB with a crappy O-Line.
