You're dying for draft picks - you take it right? If they demand the Chiefs 3rd, do you pull the trigger in KC?
If Te'o starts to fall out of the top 10, trade-up scenarios become legitimate and pretty damn interesting for KC. That high 2nd rounder will be golden given the lowered contract requirements and opportunity to re-set your draft board.
I think that Shane Skov, ILB; Stanford, is an absolutely beast of a player and will most likely be there at the top of the third when the Chiefs draft. I don't think that there is much difference between him and Te'o at all. No reason to waste a second when you can get the same guy in the third.
Would remind me of Pioli moving up into the end of the third to grab Moeaki when Pitta and Hernandez and Moeaki were sitting there in-between those eight spots that they moved up. One of the dumber draft day decisions I've recently seen by the Chiefs.
