I want the biggest, fattest turd LT available to protect Cassel's blind side!! Nobody will slow us down then.
Or maybe a super cool middle LB. Those are totally worth the first pick.
The tragedy here is that the OT in this draft, Joeckel, is nowhere near the prospect of guys like Okung, Kalil or Thomas. Just resign Albert and be done with it. It's not going to take huge money and then you let these guys grow together as a unit. Keeping the offensive line intact is one of the more important things you can do in terms of protecting your QB.
Te'o is not even close to being the guy that Willis or Kuechly is, simply for the fact that he's a Mike backer or a 43 MLB in the mold of a James Laurinaitis at best. (Which isn't a bad thing as JL is a very good player, but he's not elite and I'd argue that Te'o doesn't have the same level of instincts that JL does/did at the same stage.) Plus we have a Pro Bowl level guy on the inside as well in Johnson. I almost hoping that Reid's DC is a 43 guy so we can end this Te'o bullshit before it gets any closer to draft day.
Jarvis Jones is a Jerry Hughes clone - great instincts without the elite burst. Plus he's got the injury history. (And the neck injury is a serious concern.) And god forbid that we've got two very good rush ends on the team in Houston and Hali. Waste of a pick on so many levels.
Lotulelei and Hankins are NT's. And more of a gap controller type than, say, an upfield distruptor in the mold of Suh or Dorsey or McCoy. And considering that we've spent three of the last five top Chiefs draft picks on defensive tackles, anyone who thinks we should pick Lotulelei or Hankins can go **** themselves with a pitchfork.
But yet, you've got a guy like Geno, who's been a three year starter, put up ridiculous numbers, is prototype size, superb delivery, great arm, excellent accuracy, very good pocket presence, etc., and he's not worth the pick?
The only thing that this is is a post Luck hangover and people are thinking that that guy should be in the draft every year.
And Geno isn't that far off of Luck in terms of his intangibles and skill set as a NFL prospect.
****ing idiots who just think that the only way you spend an overall #1 on a QB is if it's John Elway.
