I will preface this list of potentials by arguing that I can’t help but predict the Chiefs drafting in the late teens in 2012.

WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma – There’s about a 50/50 chance this regime brings back Dwayne Bowe in 2012, especially if Baldwin shows well. Broyles is an incredibly shifty receiver with peerless ability to get open in college football. Listen carefully: he hauled in over 130 passes in 2010. Expect an even better year with a more mature Landry Jones throwing the ball. He’ll get first round consideration, but assuming we’re picking in the high-teens, he might be a little bit of a reach.

CB Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska — My incredibly early prediction is that the Chiefs go corner. Brandon Carr will be up for contract, and Pioli has never shelled out money for a second corner. Javier Arenas and Jalil Brown aren’t quite starting material — so the Chiefs could seriously opt for corner. There are seven first-round quality corners in this year’s draft. They don’t get much more aggressive than Dennard — an uber-physical corner that loves jamming any receiver he faces.

CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina — A bigger corner in the Brandon Carr mold, Gilmore can also generate some energy on punt returns. Gilmore has quite in common with Arenas, he’s got pretty good coverage abilities and is a demon on the blitz.

CB Cliff Harris, Oregon — My favorite corner on this list, Harris possesses blazing speed and the ability to score on special teams every time he touches the ball. He’s a bit smaller but makes up for it with incredible ballskills. Think Eric Berry, when this kid gets the ball in his hands.

OLB Brandon Jenkins, Florida State – The Chiefs will almost certainly sign Tamba Hali to a long-term deal, but there’s no guarantee Studebaker or Houston pan out opposite him. Jenkins has gained the weight necessary to make him a first-round passrusher, which he will be; the guy is a terror off the edge, garnering 13.5 sacks in 2010. Wow. Remains to be seen how versatile Jenkins can be.

ILB Luke Kueckly, Boston College — Just another in a long, long line of Boston College Eagles that I love as college prospects. Kueckly fits your typical BC mold: not physically elite, very football smart and projects very well to the pros. Never bet against a BC prospect.

OT Riley Reiff, Iowa – Unless Branden Albert can solidify himself at the LT spot, Reiff has far too many connections to the Chiefs to ignore his candidacy here. Waaaaaaay too many. In my opinion, Reiff doesn’t project to the left side, but our right side isn’t exactly locked down either, and the Chiefs almost certainly won’t resign Barry Richardson next offseason.

RB Trent Richardson, Alabama – I don’t think this is a real possibility, but it’s shown up time and time again on a couple of influential draft blogs. Considering nobody ever has a read on what Pioli wants, we can scratch this off as a real possibility.

NT Alameda Ta’amu, Washington – I don’t think this is a real possibility either. But he’s the one massive NT in this draft that has high round potential. He’ll be overvalued and overdrafted, like Phil Taylor.

OLB Devin Taylor, South Carolina – South Carolina is churning out some extreme talent this year — they could have three first rounders! One of them will be the huge, 6’7″ Devin Taylor. This is a real possibility for the Chiefs if they end up in the hunt for an outside passrusher; Taylor plays damn well in coverage.

ILB Manti Te’O, Notre Dame – Te’O flashes on the screen whenever you watch Notre Dame. He has incredible speed and a phenomenal nose for the ball. He’s more of a Derrick Johnson ILB than the thumper this defense needs, but he’s an intriguing talent nonetheless.

OLB Courtney Upshaw, Alabama – Lots of Alabama talent in this year’s draft as well, and Upshaw is projected to go in the first round. He’s not a great fit for the Chiefs at this time, because he’s more of a Tamba Hali passrusher than he is a Mike Vrabel jack-of-all trades, but I suppose there’s a chance he takes real strides in coverage in 2011.

No quarterbacks in the first round. Matt Cassel has his detractors on this website (I’m one of them). But even if he crashes and burns hard in 2011, he’ll still have the keys to the franchise for at least one more additional year after that. I would suspect we’ll see a 6th or 7th round QB selected, however.

I know Burfict doesn't project well to us unless we draft in the single digits. That and his talents and skill sets don't match up very well with what Crennel wants from his ILBs.

But damn. I'd love to see that crazy ass screaming out of control towards Tebow on Sundays and putting that fat pussy's chip on his shoulder right into the fucking dirt.

That guy is going to play himself out of a long career if he doesn't harness that energy. Guarantee you that he gets suspended his first season.

Uh-huh. Nope. Houston is your boy. Pioli got him just for you. I don't want any of this second-guessing crap. You don't see BossChief having doubts about Stanzi do you?

Houston's just a 3rd rounder, sure, but his upside projected him into the 1st round in nearly every goddamned mock. If he's shaky his rookie year I hope that Haley has the good sense to let him have another go in his 2nd year.

I personally did not like this at all and thought it was full of fail and assumptions.

No listing of QB in the first round is a failure of major proportions for any draft. Most Chiefs fans would unanimously agree it is an area that should be looked at in future drafts, next year especially to groom, so not listing even one is blatant and hurtfull.

Also, it should be on record that this franchise has lacked pro bowl level talent for years, and now that we have some talented players we have to make sure we keep them. Bowe, Flowers, Carr, Hali, Charles are among key players that should not be in discussions for replacements because they should not be going anywhere. We've waited too long to assemble key players, and still have too many mediocore players to replace at key positions for me to now have to hear about them leaving and the team then having to look for replacments.

We don't need to make up new holes, we have enough holes that are a genuine weakness on this team, that should be the focus and concentrated on getting replacements. This team is not short of cash and I think making it, or a contract an issue is shortsighted and more than likely a big waste of time.

This article was like reading those mock drafts "with assumed trades". Guess no one ever told them what happens when you assume.

I go both ways on Burfict's ability to fit in with the Pioli regime...

Clearly he has character concerns (didn't give a shit about anything in his life other than football), isn't the brightest guy on the block... etc...

But football is pretty much his life, which will endear him to this franchise. But I share Pestilence's concern.

After we win the Superbowl this year, we're just gonna skip the draft next year. Clark and Scott will just say, "No thanks, we're good".

Ha! I projected him as a first, too.

I loved the pick (A+++++++++) and believe him to be a special talent. But if his first year is just pathetic or he can't get on the field or stay out of trouble, and there's a really gifted, versatile passrusher sitting on the board, I'd pull the trigger.

"Hurtful"? I can't say I feel your pain, brah.

The Chiefs are always in the QB market, if we're talking the 4th through 7th round, even the UDFA market. But unless Cassel COMPLETELY shits his pants in 2011, the Chiefs are not in the market for a 1st round QB in 2012.

Also, it should be on record that this franchise has lacked pro bowl level talent for years, and now that we have some talented players we have to make sure we keep them.

The problem is that you see things for the way they should be, and I see them for what they are. You and I are not the GMs of this team, otherwise we'd resign all those guys.

Scott Pioli is. And Scott Pioli has no reservations with dumping really talented players if they don't fit in with what he wants his teams to do. And Pioli doesn't shell out for a 2nd CB.

Really? Did you get a chance to see the Chiefs last game and most importantly playoff game? If he has many games like that with we will be in the play for Luck at QB. If he doesn't get us to the playoffs, even with this schedule, the fans will demand the franchise look elsewhere.
