In 2009 it was the first round with T. Jax. In 2010, for many, it was the second round with Dexter McCluster.

No doubt, at some point in the draft you will sit slack jawed staring at the television screen, or computer monitor, wondering why the hell the Chiefs picked [insert name of horrible reach/talentless player].

What round will it be this year, and who will the pick be?

I get the idea it's going to come right about the time the ticker says something like:

....21 - Kansas City Chiefs: Danny Watkins, (G - Baylor).....

And you know it'll be the ticker because the draft will go to commercial right as our pick is due.

Yeah, there are a lot of guys I'm probably going to be disappointed with at 21, but Watkins will be a Tyson Jackson-esque pick.

Dude has talent, but I hate taking a RT in the first, much less one that's going to be 27 years old as a rookie.

Terrible value, which is why I'll be disappointed, but not shocked if he's the pick.

When they piss away another fifth round pick to trade up for a tight end.

Why the fuck do I keep reading about Watkins on here? It is making me uneasy.

I don't think that would be a "terrible value" pick. The guy is talented, was successful against guys who have gone or are going to go high in the draft as the top pass rushers and is being projected as a potential five position player on the offensive line.

And that he's played the left tackle position and was successful at doing so - unlike Tyron Smith, who, despite his athleticism and "potential" never managed to get slotted to the left side of the line during his playing time at USC. That's a bigger red flag to me than Watkin's age, which is the same as Branden Albert, who hasn't shown dick so far in his short career at left tackle.

It's the same reason why I liked Zane Beadles in last years draft - the guy was really good and had the potential to play numerous positions on the line. Quality and versatility combined with proven production at the college level. Not much to bitch about when you've got a team like the Chiefs who have a lot of question marks across the entire offensive line.

I think Mayock selected him for the Chiefs.

Good Slack Jaw: If we take a QB (except Locker) or trade up for Julio Jones.

Bad Slack Jaw: Danny Watkins or Nate Solder.

Round F'ing 1 if we trade up for Pouncey.

Trading up for ANY offensive lineman will make me drive-by shoot the entire neighborhood

And I guess that would make me slack-jawed

So did Scott Wright in his final mock.

:huh:

If we select Watkins in the 1st round I'll be slack jawed. I would be OK with Solder, but not excited. With the likes of Carimi, Ayers, Taylor or someone that fell to us unexpected... I would be ecstatic!

I'd melt down if we took a third round player like Danny Watkins at 21.

I'd be mildly disappointed in Carimi. I would react like Eeyore.

I really, really hope we take a defensive player with our first pick.

Hopefully the instances where the reporter for ESPN/NFLN cuts in about a minute before the pick is made and says "I've just been told, Team X is slecting person Y".

Infuriating.

Here is roughly what I would like to see:
1) mallett
2) smith, torrey
3) jones, taiwan
4) powe

And pitch in tj yates, oline depth and a safety in the last few picks.
