1. The Chiefs resign Bowe and Colquitt, tag Albert, and let Dorsey walk.
2. Quinn and Hillis are out. Jackson stays but at reduced salary a three-year deal.
3. Cassel is handed his walking papers, and the team trades its to the Eagles for Nick Foles (playing around with some of the rumors).
3. The Chiefs land DE/DT Chris Canty and ILB Brad Jones in free agency.
4. They get two compensatory picks, an extra third (Carr) and a 6th (Richardson).
On with the show:
1. QB Geno Smith, West Virginia
Considering that I've retained Branden Albert and brought in Canty, there's really nowhere else here to go but with Smith.
2. CB Jordan Poyer, Oregon State
Not the towering guy the Chiefs could really use at the positioin (5'11"), but the Eagles need a Day One starter at the corner position, and Poyer's a really versatile, smart corner. I read that he exploded onto the scene a year ago at Oregon State -- he has a high learning curve and excellent speed.
3. NT Kwame Geathers, Georgia
I figure: let's get ahead of the Dontari Poe problem. Poe can clearly get after it, but he has yet to prove he can clog lanes effectively. While we do have Jerrell Powe, I never like the odds of lower-round guys during a schematic transition. At the very least, when the Chiefs decide to put four on the DL, they've got a deep rotation of beef.
4. RB Mike Gillislee, Florida
BPA. Looking at my big board, Gillislee about fits at this spot (where a need still exists). I think the Chiefs need a versatile runner to compliment Charles, not necessarily just a plodder. Gillislee isn't that much bigger than Charles but he has superb speed and actually runs with force.
5. OG Hugh Thornton, Illinois
BPA. I like Thornton a lot as a raw athlete. Like Jeff Allen, Thornton will need some work, but I love his athleticism for our system. I think he could legitimately run a 5.0 40.
6. QB Matt Scott, Arizona
BPA. Andy Reid has proven he likes QBs from Arizona. Scott's more of an athletic wonder and would allow the team to move on from the Ricky Stanzi experiment.
6. ILB Sio Moore, Connecticut
I really love the talent here in Moore. I think he's got really solid athletic ability and can really do everything you ask an athletic DJ-type to do. He can rack up damage at the line of scrimmage, sure, but he's especially talented in coverage. Finally giving the Chiefs a semblence of depth here.
7. WR Denard Robinson, Michigan
This is a fun, experimental draft pick, since Andy Reid is not immune to these. Robinson is a mobile QB who is making the move to WR.
