Sac's 2015 Chiefs Mock Draft - Post Combine/FA/Pro Days

Signings:
Jeremy Maclin, WR
Da'rick Rogers, WR
Jason Avant, WR
Terrell Pryor, QB
Tyvon Branch, S
Derek Sherrod, OT
Jerell Worthy, DT
Hepron Fangupo, DT
Ben Grubbs, OG
Paul Fanaika, OG
Richard Gordon, TE
Kelcie McCray, S

Losses:
Rodney Hudson, C
Dwayne Bowe, WR
Donnie Avery, WR
AJ Jenkins, WR
Vance Walker, DT
Joe Mays, LB
Anthony Fasano, TE

Maclin is better for this system than Bowe. Grubbs is a very good guard, though I don't believe it off-sets the loss of Hudson. Pryor, Rogers and Sherrod are superb pickups on the cheap that offer huge ceilings at positions that can be upgraded.

Originally, I had the Chiefs taking an offensive tackle early in my previous mocks, but the signing of Grubbs pushes Jeff Allen out to RT where he competes with Don Stephenson and Derek Sherrod. Between those three, the Chiefs should find a guy who is better than adequate for the task.

It remains to be seen if DeVito can come back and play at a high level or Catapano remains a myth, so with that in mind, here's the new mock reflecting the post Combine/Pro Day/Free Agency:

1. Arik Armstead, DT; Oregon: 6’7”, 297 lb.

40: 5.10
Bench: 24 reps
Vertical: 34”
Broad: 117”
3 Cone: 7.57 seconds

Armstead possesses elite size and functional strength. Violent hands on long arms on a huge, long frame, he is absolutely prototype for the modern day 34 five tech defensive end. Already fierce against the run, his athleticism and size suggest the potential for near unlimited production at the next level – destroying passing lanes, extending gaps on run defense…Plays nasty and absolutely gets after offensive tackles. Has a quick, explosiveness out of his three point stance. A real chance to be a special player in the right system and would allow the Chiefs to operate more out of the base set than what we saw in 2014 after DeVito went down with the achilles injury.

Quote:
"No. 9 (Armstead) is extremely gifted," the GM told NFL Media's Albert Breer. "He has first-round talent, no doubt. The more he shows us in the playoff game, the better chance he has. But he's a 6-foot-8, 290-pound freak."

That praise comes less than two weeks after Yahoo! Sports reported similar remarks about Armstead from an AFC West general manager.

"Can see him go very, very high. Has everything you want out of a [defensive lineman]," the GM said. "Height, length, power, pass-rush ability. Needs to show more consistency, but raw potential is very intriguing."



2. Cody Prewitt, S; Ole Miss: 6’2”, 206 lb.

40: 4.60 – Combine; 4.46 – Pro Day
Bench: 12 reps
Vertical: 35”
Broad: 125”
3 Cone: 7.12 seconds
60 Shuttle: 11.44 seconds

I previously had Oregon OT Jake Fisher here, but he’s long gone at this point. (Might even be gone when the Chiefs pick in the first round actually.) Prewitt is the best single high safety in this draft. Guess what the Chiefs really need? Yep. Incredibly long and very instinctive, Prewitt was a two time All-SEC First Teamer and First Team All-American. Is a leader on defense. Has a very good, natural feel to defending the back half of the field and the athleticism and size to destroy ball carriers. Is exceptional at reading the QB and diagnosing the pass. Excellent 60 Shuttle Combine time. (Important for the safety position.) Was pissed about his Combine 40 yard dash, and ran a 4.46 at his Pro Day. Scouts there didn’t believe it, so he ran it again at a 4.47. (Consider that Rebel All-American CB Golston stood on his Combine 40 time. ) Prewitt’s better 40 time at his Pro Day has moved him up into mid-second round consideration in a weak safety draft.

Quote:
The thing that jumps out about Prewitt on tape is his football intelligence. His reads offenses very well before the snap, knows his assignment on each play and is nearly always in the right position to execute. He sticks to reading his keys and he’s quick to diagnose offensive plays.

The Rebels use a fairly diverse scheme of coverages and Prewitt always looked comfortable. He has experience in deep looks, rolling coverage, short zones and more. Mentally, he’s ready to step into an NFL secondary from Day 1.
When Mississippi let Prewitt keep the field in front of him, he was a ballhawk. Playing him at deep safety allows him to play off his strengths.



3. Tre McBride, WR; William & Mary: 6’0”, 210 lb.

40: 4.41
Bench: 16 reps
Vertical: 38”
Broad: 122”
3 Cone: 6.96 seconds
20 Shuttle: 4.08 seconds
60 Shuttle: 11.70 seconds

The hidden gem of the receivers in this draft. Legitimate NFL size, speed and athleticism. Good route running and has excellent hands. Very good catch radius with the ability to go up and over defenders to get the ball. His high point ability is near equal to Devante Parker. Very smart with a good understanding of the game. (Was recruited by Harvard.) Big time skills shown at the Shrine Game week. An excellent fit for Reid’s offense.

Quote:
William & Mary WR Tre McBride really impressed me over the summer based on his junior tape and then he followed it up with a strong senior season and is continuing that momentum here in Indianapolis. He ran an unofficial 4.41 in the 40-yard dash and looked outstanding catching the ball with smooth routes and above average body control. McBride gathers himself so effortlessly in his route breaks, showing off natural hands and overall receiver traits. A Pierre Garcon-like player, McBride has the tape that could land him in the top-100 and his combine performance won't hurt that prediction.



3. Eric Rowe, CB; Utah: 6’1” 205 lb.

40: 4.45 seconds
Bench: 19 reps
Vertical: 39”
Broad: 125”
3 Cone: 6.70 seconds
20 Shuttle: 3.97 seconds
60 Shuttle: 11.48 seconds

Former Freshman All-American and three time conference selection at safety moved over to cornerback for the 2014 season to fill in for the departed Keith McGill. Rowe is a very athletic and instinctive player who had an excellent combine. Strictly a press man coverage CB at the next level, but that would work out extremely well for the Chiefs as that’s what they use. Strong and aggressive, but a smart player. Excellent run defender and well coached in Utah’s pro style defense. Would fit into Sutton’s base defense on the edge as well as his hybrid dime packages extremely well.

Quote:
"Just watched tape on Utah S/CB Eric Rowe," tweeted NFL Network's Charles Davis prior to the combine. "If I’m Press/Man team I want him."

Rowe finished in the top five among safeties in the broad jump (10 feet, 5 inches; tied for third), bench press (19 reps; tied for fourth) and the 60-yard shuttle (11.48 seconds; fifth).

Rowe is seen as an NFL prospect at both the safety and cornerback positions — he played free safety his first three years at Utah before switching to cornerback his senior season.



4. John Miller, OL; Louisville: 6’2 1/2”, 303 lb.

40: Combine – 5.33; Pro Day – 5.08
Bench: 29 reps
Vertical: 27”
Broad: 104”

Miller, IMO, is the best interior lineman in the 2014 Draft. Extremely powerful and nasty, when he locks onto a defender, it’s over. Was the best player on the field at the Shrine game - a man amongst boys. While the Chiefs have signed two guards in the free agent market in Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika, there is a huge question mark at the Center position as Rod Hudson has departed for richer pastures – and guess who Miller talks to and patterns his game after? Former Cardinal and current Bills center Eric Wood. Like Hudson, a former standout college OG, Miller is a prime canidate to move inside to the Center position at the next level. He’s got very good knee bend, comes out of his stance quickly and uses his hands like meat cleavers on defenders. He has excellent leverage and strength and comes up with a ton of power. Is good on quick pulls. I think he’d be absolutely balls at any of the three OL spots, but has all the traits of a very, very good center in this scheme.

Quote:
Miller is the first guard I’ve broken down but has quickly become one of my favorites of all the players I’ve watched. There aren’t many flaws to his game.

He does a fantastic job of maintaining his base. Lower and upper half are in synch. He doesn’t lunge, always keeping his legs under him. Creates the knee bend you’re looking for and a powerful base to generate power from.

In pass protection, it allows him to anchor and absorb bull rushes as well as you could hope for. Couple that with his arm extension, and Miller should be textbook tape of how to “catch” defenders.




5. Zach Vigil, LB; Utah State: 6’2”, 236 lb.

40: 4.66
Bench: 26 reps

Vigil, who was not invited to the Combine after posting numbers that usually get you a Bukus award winning type of season with 154 tackles, 9 sacks, etc., had a very good pro day where he showed good speed, strength and moved very well in the drills. This pro day was attended by 20 NFL teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs, to basically watch Vigil. He’s a complete linebacker who plays with speed and instinct and excellent fundamentals. I think he’s one of the best ILBs in the Draft and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go a round or even two before this after showing the 4.6 speed.




5. Jeff Heuerman, TE; Ohio State: 6’5”, 254 lb.

40: ? (Ohio State Pro Day was today and they don’t release numbers, but rumor has it that Heuerman was around 4.6/4.7 area)
Bench: 26 reps

Ohio State’s shift to the run game in 2014 kept Heuerman inside for most of the season, where he is a devastating run blocker. However, in previous seasons, he was lined up all over the field – inside as an in-line blocker, outside as a flanker, as a fullback, etc. Very athletic with prototype size. He’s very similar to Kelce in terms of what he brings to the table and would provide a bookend to him in the double TE sets Reid likes to run. I like him a lot for the Chiefs.




6. Kyle Emanuel, OLB; North Dakota State: 6’3”, 255 lb.

40: 4.77 seconds
Bench: 27 reps
Vertical: 34”
Broad: 120”
3 Cone: 7.10 seconds
20 Shuttle: 4.25 seconds
60 Shuttle: 11.78 seconds

The reigning Buck Buchanan Award winner, Emanuel absolutely destroyed the FCS division with 70 tackles, 16.5 sacks, 27 tackles for loss, 3 forced fumbles and an interception. He’s not just a try hard, special teams guy – Emanuel has a number of effective pass rush moves, plays with power and speed and is well versed in fundamentals and possesses good instincts. A huge part of four FCS College Football Championships.

Quote:
Among the many defensive linemen to stand out this week, Kyle Emanuel put an impressive array of pass-rushing moves on display as he worked his way past offensive tackles throughout the week.
Quote:
College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) today announced several 2014 honors for four-time FCS national champion North Dakota State. Defensive lineman Kyle Emanuel was named the 2014 CFPA National Defensive Performer of the Year. The team, in addition, was honored for the top FCS performance in 2014.

Emanuel finished the 2014 season with 97 tackles in sixteen games. He had 32.5 tackles for loss, 19.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and one interception.

Emanuel, who was previously honored as first-team All-American, first-team All-MVFC, and the Sports Network's Buck Buchanan Award winner, helped North Dakota State finish third in the FCS in scoring defense (14.1 points allowed per game) and sixth in passing yards allowed (155.0 passing yards per game).



7. Antwan Goodley, WR; Baylor: 5’10”, 209 lb.

40: 4.44

Thick, wide muscled frame that makes him look more like a running back than a wide receiver. Will absolutely explode downfield once the ball is in his hands. Has had a extremely productive career for the Bears and was QB Petty’s preferred target. Immensely strong, will just plow through defensive backs. Offers a lot of versatility for the position, capable of coming out of the backfield as well as being on the outside where he uses his athleticism to climb up for the ball.

Quote:
Goodley is explosive on and off the field. He has been clocked as fast as 4.39 seconds in the 40 and squats an amazing 660 pounds, second-most on the team. He also caught 71 passes for 1,339 yards (18.9 yards per reception) and 13 TDs last season, when he had five catches of at least 60 yards (most in the nation), eight of at least 40 yards (tied for sixth) and 14 of at least 30 yards (tied for third-most).

In terms of a pure ILB, I think Vigil is better.

I don't think he's as disciplined or instinctive and he doesn't take on blockers as well as Vigil operating as an ILB. However, he's more versatile as his size and length would allow him to play the edge (which I think he's better at than a pure ILB) at the next level, but he's not necessarily ultra fast/quick, so you really couldn't put him on an island against NFL tackles and expect him to ultimately be successful.

I think McKinney is a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none type of player. The Chiefs could obviously use his versatility in the LB corps and it wouldn't be a bad pick in the second round as the Chiefs have shit for LB's outside of Hali and Houston (depending upon Johnson's capability of returning from the achilles injury).

I see McKinney as kind of a reverse Kyle Van Noy. He's more ILB than OLB, but can play both and gives you some excellent positional versatility outside of your base set.

I've actually seen some reports with McKinney in the 3rd or 4th. Most think he doesn't have the lateral agility or coverage ability. Many think he should move outside as Sac says. I'm torn on the guy. I think someone running a 3-4 will take him early enough as a thumper ILB. He excels at that. 3rd round might be fitting for his skill set.

I want to say that he's got the capability of being more than a two down guy, but for what the Chiefs run, he would be that, albeit the chance at a very good one. Certainly more upside than Nico Johnson or Joe Mays offered in that same role. He's a pretty smart football player who understands both sides of the ball (former QB) and has good athleticism. He's a pretty good pass rusher/blitzer with good burst numbers (if not elite speed) showcased by his 40.5" vertical.

He doesn't have the elite lateral agility of a Derrick Johnson, but not many do anyways.

The thing I like about him is that he plays exceptionally long and never stops driving once he's on the ball. He also is extremely good at filling the gaps.
