View Full Version : QB prospects I bet the Chiefs are keen on.

Pioli himself said in an interview recently that he likes QBs that he can draft, develop, and trade off for picks.

That explains, first of all, why he drafts QBs exclusively with good size. Undersized QBs command nothing on the market.

He prefers to draft QBs with good size, need some development to improve their worth on the NFL's market, and earn the team a "net gain" for a better draft pick.

Players need good size, need development, and will need to be free later in the draft. Think Ricky Stanzi.

That only really leaves us with five QB prospects, with one sixth one on the bubble:

Brock Osweiler (if he falls to the third)
Kirk Cousins (if he falls to the midrounds)
Nick Foles (if he falls deep into the draft)
Ryan Lindley, San Diego State
BJ Coleman, TN-Chattanooga
Austin Davis, Southern Mississippi (if he falls to the late rounds)

Osweiler seems like a classic Ryan Mallett selection. Pats selected Mallett in the 3rd.

Cousins could fall, a la Ricky Stanzi. Seems like the physically limited but mentally sharp player.

Foles is a mess of a prospect, but the tools are there.

Austin Davis is too small -- 6'2", 210 lbs isn't bad, but it's not what Pioli likes.

Lindley and Coleman, however, are both intriguing Chiefs picks in the 5th-7th rounds.

Both have perfect size for the Chiefs. Lindley plays out of that pro-style system in SDSU. Coleman is a two-year captain out of a small school.

To me, those are the two players you have to keep your eyes on.

Personally, if we don't take Tannehill in the 1st, I wouldn't take one until the 3rd day of the draft. We don't have many holes on this team outside of QB, but a draft of say Barron, Konz, and Chapman would be perfect IMO. Then on day 3 we could go anywhere... including QB.

yeah, i don't see any point in drafting QBs in rounds 3-4...it's a dead zone with too much talent at other positions

first, high second or 5th and later

No 2nd for me either. That means we miss out on a player we really could use... like Konz. Trade back a few spots and get Barron, then trade up a few spots and get Konz. Get Chapman in the 3rd.

A draft consisting of Barron, Konz and Chapman in the first three rounds, would be fantastic.

Best scenario for that to probably happen would be Cox lasting to #11. Trade back to #15 with Philadelphia. Philly gets #11, we get #15, #88 (3rd), #172 (6th)

#15 Barron (if he slides by Dallas)


Trade #44 and #88 to New England for #31

#31 Konz


#74 Chapman

Cox isn't a five tech DE. He struggles to take on and hold up blockers. He's a DT penetrator in a 4-3.
