Survey of Draft Websites: Chiefs will pick...

Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft0...odd&id=3803148

Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas
http://www.draftseason.com/lupagus-nfl-mock-draft

Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
http://www.walterfootball.com/draft2009.php

Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
http://newnfldraft.com/

Aaron Curry, OLB Wake Forest
http://www.draftcountdown.com/sub/Mock-Draft-A.php

Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas
http://www.footballsfuture.com/2009/nflmockdraft.html

James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/7...raft-round-one

This site compiles draft 'experts' picks. Out of the top 25, only 3 have Bradford falling to the Chiefs at #3 while 9 have Matt Stafford falling to the 3rd overrall (!) and 3 have Orakpo and 3 have Curry being selected as the 3rd overall pick. Just 12 of 25 project a QB to be selected as the 3rd overall (assuming most realize KC has the #3 pick). 10 of the 25 have defensive players being selected #3.

The rationale provided by many of the draft websites is that the Chiefs should continue to develop Tyler Thigpen and draft to address the NFL's worst _efense which set an NFL record for fewest sacks in league history.

Of course the X factor is the new GM, but I thought it was interesting that Sam Bradford was not a slam dunk for most draft web sites, and fewer than 50% see Kansas City drafting a QB at all.

If Thigpen is not the answer, I like Bradford or Sanchez, who is not projected for the first round at all.
But we REALLY need help on _efense...

Anyone have a scouting report on Curry? Apparently he's one of the best defensive players in the nation.

We have to have a change in the coaching on the defense. How many more first day draft picks are we going to give Gun and get virtually no return on our investment. And if we wind up stuck with this clown outfit for the next year, Krumrine should not be allowed to go on college campus evaluations where the single most important drill he seems to believe in is the hand slap drill. There has to be a better talent device than that.

Curry doesn't get nearly enough credit for being the top pro prospect that he is. The #1 senior in the country and a legit Top 5 talent, Curry can basically do it all. A great all-around linebacker who can stuff the run, drop into coverage and rush the passer, Curry is also versatile enough to play outside or inside in either a 4-3 or a 3-4 defensive scheme. The guy is really the total package. With the Chiefs Curry could fit in on the strongside or in the middle and he would give their front seven the boost they need.

Curry isn't amazing. And he's not a Maualuga or a Cushing, who may be the product of their teammate. He does it all by himself. He would be a solid pick.

That can be a problem.....playing with other players like the SC guys you mentioned means they understand scheme and assignment discipline better than a guy who has to be a 1 man team...

If Bradford/Stafford go #1 and a QB is available along with Crabtree, we could be in a position to move down 3 or 4 spots and pick up more draft picks. Combine that with a potential LJ trade and I could see the following scenario:

First round: A defensive playmaker like Orakpo, Curry, Laurinitis, or Maulauga.

Second round: Mark Sanchez

And maybe we could get another 2nd if someone moves up, so we could continue to build our O-line.

Still too early to know how these guys grade out, but I think it's going to be a very fun offseason for us.

If Mark Sanchez comes out, there is no possible way he will be available in the 2nd round.

If Mark Sanchez comes out, he's not lasting past pick 15.

If there was even a remote possibility he would slide like Aaron Rodgers did, he would go back to USC.

If he declares, it's because he's been told by the advisory committee and others that he's a very high pick.

Doesn't Sanchez (and all other non-seniors) have to declare his eligibility by Thursday?
