Checkin’ The Latest Line … Monday Cup O’Chiefs (http://www.bobgretz.com/chiefs-football/checkin%E2%80%99-the-latest-line-%E2%80%A6-monday-cup-o%E2%80%99chiefs.html)
April 18, 2010 - Bob Gretz |

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was talking the other day about how information on potential draft picks keeps flowing right up until moments before selection.

The 2010 NFL Draft got a taste of that on Saturday when Alabama LB Rolando McClain (right) told a Birmingham, Alabama newspaper that he does not have Crohn’s Disease, an inflammation of the intestines that can sometimes be very painful and disruptive to a person’s health.

It was McClain who surprised everyone at the Alabama Pro Day workout last month when he said he had the malady since he was in the ninth grade.

Saturday in Tuscaloosa as he was having his handprint and cleat print set in cement at a Walk of Fame on the University of Alabama quadrangle, McClain said he has now been told he does not have Crohn’s.

“In all my talks with my doctors in the past two weeks, with all the tests we’ve done, they don’t even feel I have Crohn’s disease,” McClain said. “The tests came out good and positive. Every team knows it’s not going to affect me at all.

“I don’t have any signs of it right now.”

This is of interest to the Chiefs, who despite their reticence to talk about their draft plans, have McClain as one of those players on their draft board of 100 or so names. If they like him enough, they’ll have to get him with the fifth pick in the first round. At least, that’s what they would have to do now. There remains the possibility they could trade down and out of that No. 5 spot. Or, they may find another defensive player more to their liking available, somebody such as DT Ndamukong Suh or S Eric Berry.

With four days until the first round of the Draft, it’s time to check back in with the odds makers at the Gretz Sports Book/Gas Station/Gift Shop in Miami, Oklahoma. At the close of business on Sunday, here are the big board odds on what the Chiefs will do and what the odds were 10 day ago when we last checked on them:

4-to-1 (same) they select Tennessee safety Eric Berry – The more you hear and the more you discover about this young man, it seems he has the chance to be a very special defensive player. Some think the fifth spot in the first round is too high for a safety. Certainly it doesn’t happen very often in the top five. Since the AFL-NFL combined their drafts in 1967, there have been five safeties taken in the first five picks: Sean Taylor by Washington in 2004 at No. 5; Eric Turner by Cleveland at No. 2 in 1991; Bennie Blades by Detroit at No. 3 in 1988; Ricky Dixon by Cincinnati at No. 5 in 1988; Kenny Easley by Seattle at No 4 in 1981. But the only way for the Chiefs to draft a player of Berry’s caliber is to pick him. They so desperately need help on the back line it’s hard to see how they can pass.

5-to-1 (3-to-1) they select Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain – Yes, they badly need help at inside linebacker on the Chiefs defense as well. Yes, McClain is the best insider backer available in this draft. It’s hard to explain why he was our favorite just 10 days ago and has dropped to No. 2 other than this: Berry will be on the field for every play from his first game in the league. McClain would be a welcome addition on first down, but if he did his job, he’d be out on the next play.

10-to-1 (40-to-1) they trade down and out of the No. 5 spot – Oh how the Chiefs would love to move down a few spots, pick up another second or third-round pick – or both – and still get a very good player. To do that, they would have to stay somewhere between the sixth and 12th slots. That would be Seattle, Cleveland, Oakland, Buffalo, Jacksonville, Denver and Miami. Forget Oakland and Denver; that just won’t happen at the top of the first round with an AFC West foe. It’s going to take one of those other teams to really be in love with a player who is still available at No. 5.

11-to-1 (7-to-1) they select a player from the field that isn’t expected – Two words: Tyson Jackson.

12-to-1 (8-to-1) they select Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga – He’s dropping on our big board if they stay at No. 5 because there would be better options. Now, if they trade down, Bulaga’s odds would grow increasingly more likely.

15-to-1 (no odds) they select Oklahoma State OT Russell Okung – Don’t just love when the media writes about two weeks ago about how the top four picks are locked down. Then, just four days before the draft we discover that’s not the case, not the case at all. Other than QB Sam Bradford going to St. Louis with the first choice, there’s nothing set in stone with Detroit, Tampa Bay and Washington. Chances are one of those spots at No. 2, 3 or 4 will go to Okung. The longer odds on Okung are reflective of the fact the Chiefs are unlikely to have the opportunity to even consider him.

25-to-1 (no odds) they select Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh – As the pundits and mock drafters keep throwing up different versions of what’s going to happen on Thursday night, suddenly there are predictions that Suh will still be available at No. 5. That seems like idiocy, but we’ve put it on the big board as a long shot.

50-to-1 (none) they trade up from the fifth spot – They have those two second-round picks that could get them up a spot or two in the order. But that kind of deal doesn’t make sense for this team at this time: they need bodies, not a specific body.

100-to-1 (same) they select Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant – If the Chiefs made this pick it would be one of the biggest upsets in draft history.

Off the board: Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen.

Gretz has gone on record by saying that Cassel has good arm strength, and has a bright future ahead of him. That coupled with the inane belief that KC is absolutely "committed" to him by hell or high water, and won't draft a 1st round QB.

I think this shows better due diligence than most. Before the draft, they have narrowed the players to who actually fits their team mentally and physically. Yeah, in theory, it could happen that the Chiefs are sitting there with no one left on their board.

But, it would never happen that way. First, there are 32 different teams. Even the ones with the same schemes, have different variations of those schemes. Every team has different needs, and every team has different priorities on character.

Now, Carl Peterson always had a nice long draft board. Which is why he did so well in the late part of the draft. There were many steals had. But, you can only do so much. I would have traded Eric Warfield for a decent second round pick.... or better due diligence on Ryan Sims.

The point to me, is that it is far more effective to ensure you first three picks are dead on than to chase a few late round miracles.

The reality is that no one can do it all.

Oh, and this all started with the Patriots.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/04/11/broncos-patriots-draft-off-a-short-board/

To me, it is much smarter to know the players you want and work the draft to get them if necessary.

Well, I do think he has a bright future ahead of him. I think he will be fine. That's not to say that I wouldn't take a stud QB if one were there, but I have gone on record to say that I don't think that Clausen is it. I do like Bradford, though, I know I am one of very few on here who think he will be much better than Clausen.

Every team has hits and misses. Over the time that Pioli was with the Pats, they hit on more players than most, if not all the teams in the NFL. I do believe they had more championships in that time than any other team.

I would have to go over the draft and their roster to see if you are exagerating... I think that kid Mayo is pretty good.....

They had a draft board of over a thousand players to begin with. After all the scouting, the film, interviews with players and those players coaches, and watching them at the combines, etc., they narrowed that field down to the 100 players they saw fit what they wanted to do best.

I struggle to support the pick of Tyson Jackson. I fully admit that. I do feel that he is a solid player, just not worthy of where he was picked. I feel that he fit a need and he will be a good player.

I actually like Alex Magee for where he was picked.


Donald Washington was not a reach, so I don't know how you figure this is a fail.

Other than Tyson Jackson, which is more of a question of where he picked, than whether he will contribute...... I don't see how you can call these out as fail just yet.

Look it is what it is, but the odds of hitting on a QB in the 6th round are astronomical. The odds of hitting on basically anyone that late are slim but getting a franchise player there is like winning powerball.

Then it would be like turning around telling someone your strategy to become rich is to buy a lot of powerball tickets.

If you take any good teams QB away they become significantly worse, my point is simply that you're far more likely to find your star QB as a top 5 pick than in the 6th round.

And here's Jason's worthless ass to argue semantics to defend the mighty Pioli, it never ends!

Yes dude it's lucky, they tripped ass backwards into their QB, if you think that was some stroke of brilliance I have some bad news for you.

Gimme three guesses?

It has to be someone on my ignore list, because there are gaps in the conversation.

No Jason because trying to get you to understand a point is like trying to teach a 5 year old autistic child how to pass a mensa exam.

what the fuck are you talking about here? semantics? do you know what that means?

#1 it wasnt ALL luck. they had a pretty good defense in the first couple of SBs.
#2 what is "tripping ass backwards into a QB"? they picked the guy right? i mean that actually happened. right? or did aliens just plant him on the roster?

Jason, nearly every team in the NFL had six chances to draft Tom Brady. If Dick Rebhein hadn't been jumping up and down and screaming in the warroom, the Patriots would have passed in the sixth. They didn't, and now it's all history.

There's no way the Patriots win three Super Bowls without Brady. Bledsoe couldn't even win one.

well mecca theres another side to that. just because you are trying to make a point thats made up in your head doesnt make it true. some people disagree with you. just because i disagree doesnt make me wrong.


again it wasnt all luck that the PATS won THREE THREE THREE super bowls and went UNDEFEATED another year. once? maybe luck. twice? hmmmm maybe not. THREE TIMES??? not luck hell add in the 16-0 year and nope still not luck. thats actually a trend.


now on to the lick with picking brady. they picked the guy right? i mean they talked amongst themselves and decided to pick tom brady with a draft pick right? well thats not really luck. thats called being prepared

So the odds of Al Davis dieing this year and us drafting a QB are about the same?

what does it matter now why they picked him? they did and won 3 super bowls. and who's to say that bledsoe wouldnt have won one or two or three if he had stayed the QB?



my point is that its not just all luck.


every team that wins it NEEDS some luck to go their way. thats a given BUT to say the dynasty was ALL luck is pretty ignorant IMO.



and another thing dane, if pioli drafts clausen will anyone give him credit? i meam they get no credit for brady.

sorry, but thats what it takes for mecca to understand, he's acting as though the pats were a one and done SB winning team. like they went 2-14 the next year and have sucked ever since. i dont think he understand that they won 3 and went undefeated in another year

I've been paying only half-ass attention, but I thought he was talking about Brady being a really lucky pick. A winning lottery number.

Dude was helped, for sure, by being a great organization. But he was the tits almost immediately.

Now look, Jason has a really hard time grasping points, especially if they come from certain posters, he's much like speaking with a wall.

Pioli won't choose Clausen in the first. No way.

Secondly, the Patriots were lucky that Tom Brady turned out to be a superstar, HOF QB. He was taken in the SIXTH ROUND. That's not a stroke of genius, it's a stroke of luck. If any NFL team knew that Tom Brady would become the player he became, he would have gone number one overall.

Since "Spygate", the Patriots so-called "Dynasty" has suddenly become a huge question mark. Taping hand signals and practices can easily lead to a three point advantage, which of course is the number of points each Super Bowl they participated in this past decade were won and lost.

The Patriots developed him in less than 12 months.

Yeah, "developed" as in drafted, essentially.

again brady is in NO WAY the same guy he was when he was drafted. he actually developed a deep ball.

Bingo. I used that analogy 3 years ago when talking about how similar the Cardinals were to the early 2000s Patriots

For the record, yes, Brady was a very lucky pick and not some stroke of genius. However, the Pats had to develop that talent and give that talent a chance to start. And, let him continue to start.

As far as them being a 'question mark'. They went 11-5 last year with a QB that you consider to be a POS. And, considering how important the QB is.... please don't talk about them being 'questionable'. They are a good, solid organization that almost went undefeated AFTER spygate.

Seriously, if the Chiefs only have a draft board of 100 people, then Pioli should be fired for not doing his due diligence.

You should have a draft board of 255 players.
WTF? 255? What's the point of a draft board if you're going to include every single player eligible? That's like going to a car dealership and saying "I want something with 4 wheels". You have to be specific with the players you want. What team has 255 players on their board?

I will await your curse word and anger fueled response.
