The first six rounds of my mock are up. I'm posting the 7th today, but probably not until after work.
Here are the Chiefs Picks:
1. Kansas City Chiefs
LT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
I still think this pick is a mistake. Why the Chiefs decided to trade their serviceable left tackle (who has publicly stated he wants a long-term deal in Kansas City) for a second round pick only to use the first overall pick in the draft to replace him with someone who has never played a snap in the NFL is beyond me. I think it's bad asset management. Why not keep the player you have in place and use that first pick to fix your 27th-ranked run defense? Oh well. Joeckel has become the obvious pick with Albert off the team.
54. Kansas City Chiefs (from IND)
5T Margus Hunt, Southern Methodist
The Chiefs decided to trade away their left tackle so they could use the top overall selection on his replacement. Their defensive line still needs a boost, so why not use that pick they got for Albert on a 5-technique defensive end? Hunt racked up pretty good numbers as a 3-4 DE his senior year at SMU, and whoever drafts Hunt will hope he can develop into a dominant LE in an odd front.
63. Kansas City Chiefs
WRp Justin Hunter, Tennessee
Justin Hunter has his issues with open drops and doesn't get the best separation, but he's definitely a talented player who can use his big frame and Mickey Mouse gloves to beat corners to the ball. A really good wide receiver is going to fall to the third. I have that receiver being Hunter.
96 (Compensatory). Kansas City Chiefs
FS Bacarri Rambo, Georgia
99. Kansas City Chiefs
ILB Jon Bostic, Florida
134. Kansas City Chiefs
RB Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina
170. Kansas City Chiefs
RT Ricky Wagner, Wisconsin
204 (Compensatory). Kansas City Chiefs
OLB Joe Kruger, Utah
KC's starting rusher duo is scary, but they've got nothing behind them. Kruger is a high effort, talented player that will back-up on the left side.
Last pick is Eric Martin, OLB Nebraska (getting two depth OLBs)
