Thoughts:

This is a particularly weak draft. I struggled to fill out the 3rd round with players I felt deserved to be third round picks.

The draft is only truly, classically "deep" at one position this year: corner.

This is a historically bad year for TEs.

After the first round, two positions completely fall off a cliff in terms of quality: tackle, and quarterback

I have four QBs with a first round grade, and Mallet and Kaepernick are high 2nds.

If the Chiefs were to draft strictly off the corresponding numbers off this board, they'd get:

21. OT Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State
55. DE/DT Christian Ballard, Iowa
86. OG Orlando Franklin, Miami

Given the fact we only have 2 OT's on the roster under contract, and a possible retirement comming up for Wiegmann, under your ranking system, I would go with...

21. Sherrod OT Mississippi State
55. Hudson C Florida State

NFLNetwork the other day had a piece on who they thought was going to be 2nd day stars. Hudson was mentioned by one of the hosts as being very comparable to Ryan Kalil from the Panthers.

Offensive line should be set for years to come.

I think it's a pretty solid draft.

The defensive line position is ridiculously good, and the top five offensive tackles look to be high floor, high ceiling type players. You've also got three "generational" level talents in Von Miller, Pat Peterson and AJ Green.

The guard position also looks really good, and Rod Hudson of Florida State might actually qualify as a "generational" type guy at his position. (He reminds me of Will Shields - his body type, style of play and production are almost identical to Shields.)

Cornerback is extremely good and deep.

Center and nose tackle look solid as well.

It's a very nice fullback class too.

And I like the offensive tackle depth in this class. You've got five guys who should be legit NFL left tackles, and a ton of really good right tackle prospects. When you have a guy like Lee Ziemba, who was a first team Walter Camp and a four year starter at tackle for the National Champs, being mentioned as a fourth/fifth rounder, that's a deep class. A lot of sleepers as well, such as Rob McGill from LaTech. Solid tackle class.

The RB position is not deep.

NFLNetwork the other day had a piece on who they thought was going to be 2nd day stars. Hudson was mentioned by one of the hosts as being very comparable to Ryan Kalil from the Panthers.

Offensive line should be set for years to come.

I'm not sold on converting a guy to a position that he's never played. Hudson is one of the best guards coming out of college, and maybe the best since Will Shields. However, he is only being "projected" to the center position. He never started at that position in college (he has played there sparingly because of injuries during games).

Guys like Wisniewski and Pouncey struggled at the position when they played it and Wis was actually moved back to guard after being at the center spot his junior year.

There is a lot of high quality true centers out there, and a number who should excel in a zone system. Kirkpatrick, Baxter, Barnes, Taylor, Linnenkohl, Bartholomew are all solid pivots that would work well in this blocking scheme.

However, I think that Hudson is a very special talent and possesses skills that bely his "average" size. He's dominant as a blocker and really drives even the biggest defenders around with ease. He has played some center (as well as tackle) for the Seminoles and would absolutely excel in a zone scheme.

If he's there is the second, it would be a completely solid pick. Sherrod in the first and Hudson in the second would indeed solidify the offensive line for a decade.

(Make Ryan Harris your #1 free agent priority and you've potentially got one of the best lines in football.)

I agree. In hindsight, the front office did the team good by selecting Berry and Lewis in last years draft.

Picking up a guy like Derrick Sherrod would fill the void of passing on Okung for Berry last year and make sense in terms of drafting to the strengths of the draft as it relates to the needs of the team.

I guess if you are moving Albert into the LG position, you could go ahead and grab Franklin in the 3rd. I have read where several GM's think he has more athleticism and long term potential than Castanzo and Carimi.

I'd rather spend the first on Sherrod than a third on Franklin, who is probably more of a NFL right tackle than left. Take that third rounder and use it on a guy like Jerrell Powe, NT, Ole Miss. or any of the solid wide receivers that should be there like Austin Pettis, Niles Paul, or Edmund Gates.

Gotcha.

I think I'd still like to pick up Ryan Harris in free agency to give the line some experience. Harris, when healthy, is one of the top RT's in the game and excels in a zone system. Denver isn't going to sign him and since the Chiefs have a lot of cap room, they should be able to afford him even if the bidding gets a little high. He's only 26 as well.

Take that third rounder and get the NT or WR that this team needs.

Something like:

1. Derek Sherrod, OT; Miss State
2. Rod Hudson, C/G; Florida State
3. Jerrell Powe, NT; Ole Miss
4. Austin Pettis, WR; Boise State
5. Jermey Beal, LB; Oklahoma
5. Vincent Brown, WR; San Diego
6. Tom Keiser, OLB; Stanford
7. Robert Hughes, FB/RB; Notre Dame

Yeah, that OL would be pretty young. But you could maybe open the season

Sherrod
Albert
Hudson
Lilja
Richardson

just to have some experience to let Sherrod and Hudson learn with, then gradually move Asamoah and Franklin into the rotation.

And not saying I would do that either, players just kind of fell that way in your stacking of the top 96 players.

There is no way in hell they start 3 rookies on the O-line next season. It would also be very foolish. Albert is the starting LT on this team. GTF over it.

I agree with the first part. But there have been a lot of teams that have opened the season with 2 rookies, and done fairly well.

And as far as Albert being at LT, I would tend to agree, but I'm not 100 % sure anymore.

Albert
Lilja
Hudson
Asamoah
Sherrod

from L to R maybe.

I've got to agree with you here, but am going to be surprised if they will move Lilja out of the lineup. Not saying it shouldn't happen, just going to be surprised. And if we do draft Sherrod in the 1st, he better not be a backup to both Albert and Richardson.

Just keep ignoring the fact that the man behind center contributed to most of the sacks the team allowed this season. The line is not in near as bad a shape as you paint it. Keep your head buried in the sand though.

Mr. Laz
04-17-2011, 03:49 PM
Lilja did a quality job for us ... no reason he shouldn't start again this year. Maybe we slide him over to LG so Asomoah can be RG though.

we could certainly use an upgrade just about everywhere else but i don't think you want to completely change the entire Oline because you lose continuity.

Just keep ignoring the fact that the man behind center contributed to most of the sacks the team allowed this season. The line is not in near as bad a shape as you paint it. Keep your head buried in the sand though.

The QB also contributed to a lot of non-sacks by throwing the ball away at the first sign of pressure... which often came very early in the play. The QB now has 3 full years of starting under his belt.

Of bigger concern to me is the inability to convert almost any short yardage situation by running the football. For the style of ball we want to play, that can not happen again this next season.

And this may be just my opinion, but I feel the offense has pretty much been ignored in the draft for the past 5 years or so outside of Bowe and Albert. It is time for the draft picks to focus a bit on that side of the ball and try and build a complete team, instead of one that is dominate on one side of the ball.

Mr. Laz
04-17-2011, 03:55 PM
starting a rookie center is going to be dicey ... that's why i wondered whether or not it would be better to try Asomoah there. He was projected by some to be a C/G coming out of college. He has the natural bulk and leverage to snap the ball and still be able to maintain his position.

If we are going to draft/start a Center then he better be a stud.

Jets did it with Mangold... but he fits the stud category. Started Ferguson at T that first year too. Went to the playoffs too, IIRC. 1st year after Herm? :shrug:

so what's your point?

CAN it be done ... sure, teams have started rookie at all sorts of positions and been successful. Center is just one that is a little more difficult unless we decide to have Lilja make the line calls or something.

hardest positions to start rookies(offense) at imo

1. QB
2. WR
3. C


LT is just about whether they guy can do it or not as it is him being a rookie imo.

He handled the pressure well at times this season, but the last 2 games weren't pretty at all. That stands out in most people's minds.

The line definately suits Charles and the big play moreso than a bruising short yardgage game. That is for sure. They are able to get out well and block in space.

The team could definately use a C or WR that is for sure. I think the team likes it's G's and T's, but that's just my opinion.

Coogs
04-17-2011, 04:11 PM

That starting rookies on the O-line can work. But like you said, they had better be studs. Wasn't argueing with you at all.

The throw aways stand out in my mind as well. That is something that has to change IMO if we are to take that next step. If we automatically go to 2nd and 10 against the defenses we are going to face this season it could be a long year. And I understand 2nd and 10 is better than 2nd and 17, but a 4th year starter at QB shouldn't panic at the first sign of danger, and be instructed to get rid of it as he was this past year.

while I personally think Albert is low on our list of problems, and there is 0 chance they draft OL back to back, much less start both, that's a good draft (taking your word for it on Hudson)...throw in a FA WR (which we need badly) and we've accomplished a lot

Bullshit. The line is fucking atrocious. It is you that has your head buried in the sand if you think it's decent. They had a near ideal set of circumstances in their schedule this past season which helped "elevate" the play of the line where they played against some of the NFL's worst pass rush defenses and worst run defenses. It played right into the hands of the team as it was structured offensively.

However, when matched up against teams that actually produced a pass rush, they got hammered. And unless they work to drastically upgrade the performance of the line, they will be absolutely slaughtered in 2011 if they decided to play out the season. NFC North, Indy, Steelers, etc. It's a worst nightmare situation for this offensive line as it stands now. That's a fact.

However, with two draft pics and a key free agent signing, this could be a very good offensive line.

You heard it here first, folks. We're replacing DJ and Berry, moving Albert to G, and switching back to the 4-3.

Bullshit. The line is fucking atrocious. It is you that has your head buried in the sand if you think it's decent. They had a near ideal set of circumstances in their schedule this past season which helped "elevate" the play of the line where they played against some of the NFL's worst pass rush defenses and worst run defenses. It played right into the hands of the team as it was structured offensively.

However, when matched up against teams that actually produced a pass rush, they got hammered. And unless they work to drastically upgrade the performance of the line, they will be absolutely slaughtered in 2011 if they decided to play out the season. NFC North, Indy, Steelers, etc. It's a worst nightmare situation for this offensive line as it stands now. That's a fact.

However, with two draft pics and a key free agent signing, this could be a very good offensive line.

Your obsession with the position is quite frightening. The Vermeil Chiefs had to have given you a perma woody.

Did you inform Romeo and Haley? :LOL:
I think the 3-4 stays until Romeo retires at least.
