Mock (1/12)

Assumptions:

1. The Chiefs extend Alex Smith 4 years, $60m ($36m guaranteed), and OLB Justin Houston 6 years, $62m ($32m guaranteed).

2. The Chiefs restructure SS Eric Berry and OLB Tamba Hali.

3. The Chiefs resign S Husain Abdullah to a 2 year, $4m deal.

3. The Chiefs resign WR Kyle Williams, LS Thomas Gafford, ILB Akeem Jordan, and NT Jerrell Powe to minimal deals.

4. The Chiefs let walk: WR Dexter McCluster, TE Sean McGrath, OT Brandon Albert, OG Jon Asamoah, OG Geoff Schwartz, DE Tyson Jackson, OLB Frank Zombo, S Kendrick Lewis, S Quinten Demps

5. The Chiefs cut: CB Dunta Robinson

6. Chiefs sign WR Jeremy Maclin to a 3 year, $15m deal, OG Willie Colon to a 2 year, $7m deal, OT Winston Justice to a 1-year, $2m deal, S Nate Allen and S Bradley McDougald to minimum deals.

On with the show:

1.20. DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame

The Chiefs traded the #23, their 4th and next year's 3rd in exchange for the Cardinals' #20 and their 4th next year. The move is intended to jump the Packers.

My current lead guy for my official endorsement at the #23 pick. Tuitt has the body of a 3-4 DE with the athleticism of a 4-3 DE. We have a bunch of "pretty good" guys at DE, but nobody who blows the doors off the place. Imagine an NFL defense that has to pick their poison between Hali, Houston, Poe, and Tuitt. We need more reliable pressure.

3.87. CB Victor Hampton, South Carolina

The Chiefs need more talent at the corner position. By the time the third rolls around, it's conceivable that Hampton, so long as he declares, would be around. He is a very physical, aggressive corner who is not a physical freak or anything (5'10", 190 lbs), but the Chiefs are already set for lankier corners with Smith and Cooper.

Hampton reminds me of Alterraun Verner, a guy who I loved out of UCLA. Not the fastest guy, but a very smart corner with great anticipation.

5.151. OLB Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas

Jeffcoat is an undersized one-year wonder, but his job rushing the passer was incredibly impressive. 13 sacks, with tons of havoc in the backfield to his name. He's not going to test very well at the Combine, I don't think, and again, he doesn't quite have the physical look of a demon off the edge. But his results are hard to discount.

6.177. RB Isaiah Crowell, Alabama State

Crowell is a fiery talent at RB who can make incredible noise in the NFL with his unholy combination of size/speed. Crowell, however, is a terrible problem child off the field. The Chiefs might have a locker room capable of keeping him on the straight and narrow, and I'm willing to drop a 6th to find out.

6.183. TE Jacob Pederson, Wisconsin

Pederson is a fast, athletic tight end with really good hands. He's had two years of impressive work catching the ball, but this past season he bulked up in the run game as well. A fitting upgrade from McGrath, and a potential starter down the road.

7.215. NT Justin Ellis, Louisiana Tech

6'1", 350 lbs of angry run-stuffing material with some surprising athleticism.

This team needs to make a serious investment at DE and give offensive lines migraines trying to figure out how you're going to block so many elite passrushing talents. Tuitt is a gamechanger in that regard. Although if this team was able to track down Antonio Smith out of Houston, I'd be cool with that, too.

Now, I'm a DL homer, always have been -- I almost always go DL in the first round when I'm not going QB. But my point stands.
That's bullshit.

Poe, Hali and Houston are supposedly destroyers of worlds, Pro Bowl level guys. These are your guys who should be giving "offensive lines migraines trying to figure out how you're going to block so many elite passrushing talents."

Teams don't figure out how to block them, especially all three of them at one time. They should be kicking complete and utter ass. All game, every game.

And you most certainly don't draft high on top of them, if they are of that talent level, especially Houston and Poe, who are very young in their careers.

You want to maximize the DE spot? Then shift Poe over there on first downs and have Powe play NT, a la Ngata. That's how you maximize a 6'4", 350 lbs. guy who is bull strong and runs a 4.8 40.

DeVito is totally solid. So is Jackson. Between Poe, Hali and Houston, they should be blowing shit up like Dresden in WWII. You don't need to spend another first rounder on a guy like Tuitt, who you hope can rush the passer from the five tech spot when you've already got Bailey and Catapano who are already doing that in subpackages anyway and have Hali and Houston.

A backup to OLB is needed. But you don't blow a high draft pick on that guy - as he's going to be a backup/special teams guy.

This team could absolutely use a true lock down, press cover corner.

I'm hoping that Cooper makes the effort this off season to become that guy. He's got the skillset to do it.

I also think that Abdullah has a shot at becoming a very solid FS. He made big strides as the season went on. And I wouldn't mind seeing them draft a guy like KSU's Zimmerman later in the draft to see if he translates to the pro level. The guy is the best ballhawk in the draft at the safety position IMO.

Tyson Jackson ****ing sucks. He can't get a pass rush to save his life.

I don't give a flying **** if we have those 3 or not. You add to that front 7 more and more. The NYG had Kiwanuka, Tuck and JPP but they keep adding guys like Damontre Moore and Jonathan Hankins.

SF has both Smith's, Willis, Bowman and Brooks, but yet they keep adding guys like Tank Carradine and Corey Lemonier.

Teams already have trouble matching up with our trio of monsters, but I want more than that.

Plus we have to consider that Tamba isn't going to be here much longer. Need to develop a guy to replace him.

I believe we will resign Schwartz, Jackson, Demps, and probably McCluster.

Depth is definitely important. I know our players were getting tired and all, but I still think a lot of the responsibility for second half failures was the lack of adjustment.
Another reason for the drafting of DL is money and the cap. We will not be able to afford to keep the same 2 top pass rushers. The money required and the cap makes that almost impossible. We may have to let Tamba go if we want to keep Houston. It would be the best financially to get that piece from the draft.
So between the financials and high quality depth for a consistent fresh rotation it is very important to keep drafting DL/OLB high even though they might to be flashy picks at the time.

As for the draft, the only defensive position that I would even consider using our first round pick on is a FS. That is true position of need and even with that being the case, I fully expect Dorsey and Reid to get Alex Smith some toys to play with. TE, WR, or Lineman.

I think a bi reason for our defensive collapse was that we just rode it so hard early in the year, guys playing every down etc, that thy ran out of gas.

We need to pour resources into the front 7. The panthers have a shit back end, but up front, they're nasty.

Well ,allthat shit was good the first 9 games then it all dissapeared. They need more help or at least more rotation.
