Sac's 2015 Chiefs Mock Draft - Post Senior/Shrine Games

Here is the post-Senior Bowl/East-West Shrine Game mock draft. The upcoming draft looks to be favorable to the Chiefs needs at OL, ILB, WR, S/DB with it deep at those positions.

While a lot don't put stock into the post season college All-Star games, front offices/coaching staffs/scouting departments love them. They allow teams to look at guys in one on one situations in a controlled environment for an entire week of practice enabling players to show more skills and projected traits than what you typically can gleam from college game situations. Pro coaching staffs working hand in hand with these players brings out the potential or shows the warts that can be masked during college team play.

As well, Dorsey seems to place a lot of emphasis on a potential players performance during these All-Star game weeks with Eric Fisher, Dee Ford and Phil Gaines all having stellar performances during these times.

With this mock, I'm going with the mention of four compensatory picks - one in the third and three in the fifth.

As such, here's the new mock (1/25/15):

1. Ereck Flowers, OT; MIami: 6'6", 320 lb.
- As much as I don't want to see it, I think that La'el Collins, who I had here previously, has moved himself into the top 15 in this draft. He showed really well at the Senior Bowl and looks to be a high level four position player on the offensive line. I also am not as high on offensive tackle TJ Clemmings as most others. One could go with the BPA at this pick and that is the Longhorn's defensive tackle Malcolm Brown, but I think he'll measure closer to 6'0" than his listed 6'2" and will be better inside than as a five tech in a 34. As such, I think that the Hurricane's Ereck Flowers is the guy.

Huge, but possesses good quickness and smooth feet, Flowers, a junior who's started at LT the past two years, was very good against some superb pass rushers this past season (Mario Edwards, Randy Gregory). Very strong at the point of attack and can effectively drive block as well as possessing a nice set of feet in pass protection. He's got the size, strength and feet to be a potential player at either tackle or guard position. Has a little nasty to him as well. He doesn't lock onto guys as well as Collins or Schreff, but he moves extremely well horizontally and gets into the second level in a hurry. Maybe a better tackle prospect than those two versus a guard.




Previous picks: La'el Collins, OT: LSU; Danny Shelton, DT: Washington; Eddie Goldman, DT: Florida State

2. Cody Prewitt, S; Ole Miss: 62, 212 lbs.
-Prewitt was an absolute ball hawk for the Rebels in 2013 with six interceptions. He's continued that in 2014 where he's arguably the best FS in college. Prototype size with superb instincts and hits like a truck.




Previous picks: Nate Orchard, LB; Utah: Benardrick McKinney, LB; Miss State

3. Dres Anderson, WR; Utah: 6'2", 190 lbs.
- I've bounced between Anderson, Stefon Diggs and Phillip Dorsett with this pick. Right now, I think that Anderson, son of former NFL'er Flipper Anderson, offers the most upside as a potential true #1 NFL WR. He would have been a second rounder at worst, but blew out his knee early in the 2014 season. Quick off the line, accelerates and finds a second gear in the open, he's also got very good hands and runs precise routes. He's got a knack for making the big plays.





Previous picks: Stefon Diggs, WR; Maryland

3. John Miller, OL; Louisville: 6'3", 320 lb.

- Second team All-Conference in 2013, Miller is a wide, fundamentally sound OL player. He was the best player on the field at the Shrine game and was simply a man amongst boys. He's a big dude with power and when he locks onto a guy, it's over. I absolutely love Miller as a potential high level NFL guard. Four year starter, three at LG.

Quote:
While he may lack elite athleticism, Miller demonstrates intelligence, sound technique and toughness in the trenches with enough quickness in a short area to be a reliable pass-protector when asked to slide and mirror interior rushers, and his initial burst off the snap enables him to get to the 2nd level and target efficiently.
From a technical standpoint, Miller exhibits good bend in his lower half and is rarely overwhelmed as he keeps his feet moving, resets without wasted motion, and establishes good extension to keep defenders out of his frame. Another mid-round type of prospect who's durability and consistency could make him a terrific pro.


Previous pick: Phillip Dorsett, WR: Miami; Eric Kendricks, LB; UCLA; Rashard Greene, WR; Florida State

4. Jeff Heuerman, TE; Ohio State: 6'6", 255 lb.
- Big and athletic, Heuerman has been used inside as an in-line blocker, set as a typical TE and outside as a wideout for the Buckeyes this season. OSU states that he puts up 33 reps at 225 and has a 36.5" vertical. Economics major. Was instrumental in the National Championship game as a blocker. Was blowing holes through the line for RB Elliott.



5. Tre McBride, WR; William & Mary: 6'2", 205 lbs.
- One of the best at the Shrine game, McBride showcased very good field recognition and hands. Big body and smooth. Good routes.

Quote:
Entering the week, McBride was my highest-rated Shrine Game prospect and after a full week of practice, that hasn't changed. At 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds with 4.50 speed, he doesn't have imposing size or blazing speed, but he prides himself on the details, selling routes and using his foot quickness in his breaks to create just enough separation. McBride did an excellent job attacking the ball in the air with his quick eyes and hands, also taking reps as a punt returner. He is more smooth than explosive, reminding me a lot of Pierre Garcon when he entered the NFL out of Mount Union.



5. Stefon Diggs, WR; Maryland: 60, 195 lbs.
- Diggs is one of the fastest guys in college football. And he can play the WR position as well. However, Diggs has kinda dug (get it?) himself into a hole with his late season antics (fight, pushing a ref, etc.). At one time, he was considered a borderline first day/early second day pick, but with guys like Dorsett and Lockett having excellent post season practices and games, Diggs is likely to drop in the draft.




5. Eric Rowe, CB; Utah: 6'1", 205 lb.
Two year, PAC 12 All-Conference starter at free safety, he moved over to the CB position in 2014. Plays long and is extremely fast. (Timed a 4.39 at Utah this past summer.) Is well versed in man coverage in Utah's pro style defense. A lot of upside as well as having the capability of contributing right out of the gate.




5. Karlos Williams, RB; Florida State: 6'1", 225 lb.
- For the 2013 season, Williams was flipped from the safety position to the RB position and was well on his way to a high draft pick status. Since then, he's had to share the Seminole backfield with talented freshman Dalvin Cook and has seen his draft stock drop. However, in looking beyond the initial RB stats, Williams was used inside the tackles a lot as well as a receiver (29 receptions for 265 yards.) Former five star prep rated as the #8 overall player in his high school class. Elite athletic ability.

Quote:
Possesses speed, cutback ability and power, and demonstrated improved vision over the course of his lone season at tailback. Williams has light feet and flexible ankles to make strong cuts and redirect his momentum quickly.

While decisive and smooth, he also runs with forward lean and a physical style that makes him a tough guy to slow down once he gains steam.


Previous pick: Wayne Lyons, CB/DB; Stanford

6. Terrance Plummer, LB; Central Florida: 62, 241 lbs.
- Very solid linebacker who has played both inside and outside for the Knights. Has excellent burst to the ball and is effective in all facets of both inside and outside linebacker responsibilities. A real warrior so far in the 2014 season. 2013 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Defensive Most Valuable Player, with 14 tackles in the Knights 52-42 win over Baylor.

Quote:
Senior linebacker Terrance Plummer poured his heart and soul into the Knights (3-2, 1-0) overtime victory Thursday night.

A career high of 17 tackles. A sack. A forced fumble. A fumble recovery. A 31-24 victory over BYU.



7. . Zach Vigil, LB; Utah State: 62, 240 lbs.
- Vigil was impressive at the Shrine game. Possesses exceptional instincts and has very good speed. Attacks the ball carrier aggressively, but uses sound technique to wrap up. Drops back into coverage and can play sideline to sideline. His 2014 season was the stuff of legends: 154 tackles, 8.5 sacks, Int for TD, etc. I don't believe he'll be this low after the Combine, where he should test pretty well, but a deep ILB draft pushes him down a bit. A bargain from the 5th round and on.




Previous pick: Robertson Daniel, CB: BYU; Justin McCay, WR; KU; Quinn Epperly, QB; Princeton

This might be the first year Ive been ok with Sacs mocks. If we are stuck with Alex might as well load up on Oline, TE, and backs. Not sure Id go with a WR though as high as the 3rd given our lack of utilizing them.

I want to see how Dres Anderson's recovery is going. If he can't participate in the combine or pro day, I wouldn't draft him until rd 4.

I'd rather draft Lockett in rd 3 in that scenario.

I think that the lack of utilization is more due to our WR's basically sucking versus scheme or quarterback.

Consider that McCluster and Avery were, outside of Bowe, our two most consistent threats from the WR position and neither were there this past season (in entirety). Avery was targeted 26 times in the six games he played before injury.

Bowe doesn't run good routes. Never has, never will.

Hemingway, while an outstanding special teamer, can't get separation off the line and on his breaks.

Thomas is more running back than receiver.

Wilson is a small school track guy. Raw like sushi.

Only Kelce, Fasano and Bowe from the receiving group had catch percentages over 60%.

That sucks. Big, long, hard ones.

This system needs guys who break hard, at the right spot and are capable of extending the play with YAC. They also have to catch the ****ing ball. Right now, we don't have a receiver that can do that with regularity.

It's not Smith. It's not the system. It's the receivers.

Blame Dorsey. I do. The guy didn't draft anybody last year at the position when it was a remarkably good draft class and it really held the team and Smith back.

Agree.

I think Lockett has done enough to merit later second round consideration as well. He had a really nice week at the Senior Bowl and I think he moved himself up as a result.

I'd have a hard time deciding between Anderson and Lockett - if Anderson's leg injury is completely healed. Although, supposedly, the injury wasn't as bad as initially thought; however, the Utes have been tight lipped about the exact nature of the injury.

Anderson put up some gaudy numbers and big plays despite some pretty shitty QB throws to him.

He's accepted an invite to the Combine.

I'm more inclined to a 6'1", 190 lb. guy who's fast than a 5'10", 175 lb. guy who's fast at this point with De'Anthony Thomas on the team.
