End of the college season mock. Now that we know all of the underclassman who have declared, its a little more official.

1. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/abk3HgvwEeI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
BPA pick. Going over all the major mock drafts and big boards, it really looks like Richardson will fall. Of course trading up to get RGIII would be the best option, doesn't look like it will happen though. Richardson and Charles is a beast mode backfield. Chiefs would have the #1 ground attack in the NFL more than likely in 2012. Riley Rieff would be my pick if he was available, right now I don't see that happening.

2. Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/iLdOzpVW4WE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Needing depth at the position and knowing Moeaki's injury history, this is a no brainer pick IMO. Not to mention how the NFL is going towards a two tight end system. Fleener gives the Chiefs passing attack another exciting weapon.

3. Bobby Massie, OT, Mississippi

Looking to upgrade their right tackle position, Massie should do just fine. He is very athletic and has played right tackle in the SEC. He will be a nice additon to the Chiefs offensive line.

4. Aaron Henry, S, Wisconsin
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/yYNWTrmnmNI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Chiefs need depth at the safety position behind Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis. Henry was a productive starter for the Big Ten champions and will give the Chiefs solid depth. Also played cornerback for the Badgers. Very good student as well.

5. Nicolas Jean-Baptiste, NT, Baylor
http://image.cdnllnwnl.xosnetwork.com/pics32/400/CR/CRYRDITARJEVHRC.20111014213718.jpg
With Kelly Gregg aging real quick, and Amon Gordon is a free agent, Chiefs add some depth to their d-line. You can never have enough depth on the d-line, especially how the Chiefs rotate them in and out.

6. William Vlachos, C, Alabama
http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2010/0105/ncf_u_vlachos01_200.jpg
Chiefs add a three year starter and two-time national champion to their offensive line. Vlachos helped power the rushing attack lead by Trent Richardson. Has played in a lot of big games over his career for the Tide.

7. Jacory Harris, QB, Miami (FL)

Taking a flier in the seventh round. Harris was suppose to be what RGIII was. Instead he had an updown career at the U. Still has all the tools you look for in a NFL QB. Its worth the shot this late in the draft.

I could go for this draft but I would swap #4 and #7. Get a 4th round QB and a 7th round depth safety.

For QB you are looking at a pool of...

Kirk Cousins - With all the QBs going back to school he'll probably go earlier, though.
Brock Osweiler
Brandon Weeden
Russell Wilson
Kellen Moore
Chandler Harnish
Ryan Lindley

For S I'd go for a combo of size and speed. Someone like Christian Thompson, Kelcie McCray and Sean Richardson. I originally was looking at Sean Cattouse but he seems to be creeping up everyones board.

I like it, except for the 7th round pick. It seems like every time I saw Jacory Harris play, he threw at least one interception.

If you are looking for a day 3 player from Baylor, consider Philip Blake the center. Watch Griffin videos and pay attention to the center.

Cousins would be my choice out of those but I think he will go higher. The rest are just blah IMO. I'm really not a fan of the Quarterback class this year. I really like Aaron Henry though. He brings alot of verstatile to our secondary. Top notch student. Class act. He seems like the perfect Chiefs draft pick.

I have been watching Blake some. Two big concerns with Blake. First is his weight. He is big. Around 320 I beleive, which would put him heavier than our tackles. Also is age. He will be 27 in middle of the season.

Thanks for the mock. I agree, no Harris in the 7th. I love what you did in Rd 1-4.

Aaron Henry would be a great pick for Chiefs, I agree.
We would add to depth at our D-Back spot which is always good. Plus he gets to learn from Berry which helps him understand the game more.

Not to poke holes in the OP, but Vlachos is a second or third round prospect and NJB will be gone by the end of the third, I would bet. I do think Harris is worth a late flyer, however.

Nice mock, but I doubt that several of those players are still available in the rounds you listed. JMO. If we end up at this however, I would love it. A draft in which we pick up Trent and Fleener is pretty solid

I have yet to see Vlachos on any top 100 prospect boards anywhere. I don't see him as a second or third round prospect.

it'd be cool if it played out this way, but I think some of those guys won't be around where you've got 'em going. Baptiste, for example...

I don't see Vlachos as a top 100 prospect either. I've seen a shit-ton of him over the past two years, and am pretty unimpressed.

If we drafted that Aaron Henry guy, I would propose that we give him the nickname, "Hank Hammerin' ".

Draft John Brantley in the 7th! You guys need a Gator on your team.

Not Brantley. He's awful. Chiefs have Brandon Siler.

I like that he's 320. Makes it more of an even matchup against all the 330 NTs from 3-4s out there. Didn't know he was that old, Still, I'd like that pickup.

But on your draft? Really like it. Like Richardson. Like Fleener.

Only downside is it would almost make our team Cassel proof. :banghead:

But just imagine our offense:

Double Tight with Fleener, Moekai. Bowe and Baldwin split out wide, with Richardson or Charles in the backfield. Damn thats scary good.

I just dont see how Richardson makes it to us.

The more and more I think about it, I think Richardson goes 5th to TB, assuming the Redskins don't trade up to get RG3. If the Redskins do trade up I see him going to Cleveland at 4. Either way, I don't see him making it passed TB.

Both Cleveland and TB were bottom feeders in both points and rush yards. Cleveland is unlikely to re-sign Hillis and will need a RB. TB needs some offensive weapons for Freeman. They have Blount, but I don't see him as anything more than a supporting cast.

Personally, I hope I'm 100% right because I do not want to see the Chiefs drafting a RB in the first round.

Tampa Bay desperately needs CBs. If Claiborne is there.....I believe he's the pick.

Plus....unless someone trades up....the only team ahead of us that could go RB would be Cleveland.....but that's if they don't try and trade up for RGIII.

We could use that to our advantage at 11 though if Richardson falls to us. A team like the Bengals might want to trade up to grab him.

If you have one running back you have no running backs, I hope Richardson pans out...

LOL he was awful. You never know how he'd do in the NFL. And yeah Siler. Will he play when healthy?

Siler is nothing more than a Role player. There shouldn't be any expectations of that guy. He's purely a Goal to go LB.

Chiefs are clearly not drafting a TE before later rounds IMO. Moeaki looked real good in his rookie season and sure he will be coming back from an ACL and had injury problems in college but the chiefs have to be much more concerned with their Oline than the TE position.

There's no way you draft a TE with your 2nd round pick when you already have Moeaki and obvious holes on your Oline.

A OT and Weigmann retiring goes a long way in to fixing the OLine. We don't need to draft OLine in rounds 1 and 2.

We need a C and a Rt or a LG and a RT.

Shouldn't be hard to find someone better than Richardson.

Wow... everywhere I see mock drafts and Chiefs fans saying we will draft an Oline with our 1st pick and often with both our 1st and 2nd round picks and then you say we don't need to do that.

I personnally wish that we can trade up to get Griffin III but I have come to think it will be nearly impossible. We would then have to draft either Richardson, the best O tackle or DeCastro. One thing is for sure, I'd be reallly really surprised if we didn't pick an Oline with one of our first 2 picks.

01-24-2012, 06:39 PM
We should take an OL with one of the picks.

There are some damn good LGs in free agency this offseason. I doubt we would go after Carl Nicks as he is gonna cost some coin, but Ben Grubbs would be a solid get.

Then take your RT in the draft somewhere and you are good to go.

It's not about finding someone just better than Richardson, otherwise we could take really anyone.

BTW, I`m not as harsh on Richardson as most Chiefs fans are and I want to remember all of you that he was our RT when we had the very best rushing game in the league in 2010 and a terrible QB that went to the Pro Bowl.
