I know all of you fans would like to see a RB taken in round 1.

But the offense has not been the problem this year. With this team's passing a attack, which is now one of the league's best, I really don't think we need that great of a rushing attack. And no, I don't think we'd be playoff bound if we had Corey Dillon either.

This team's biggest needs are at Defensive Tackle, Outside Linebacker and Punt/Kick Returner.

If the Chiefs would've had a decent Defense this year, they would be in the playoffs. They have the ability to score with anybody right now, but they haven't stopped anyone.

IMO, they should draft a Fullback in the middle rounds to block for TRich and use the higher picks on Defense. They need to audition TRich these last two games. He played very well last week when given the carries.

They should look at drafting these players:

Dan Morgan - OLB (Nation's Best)
Moran Norris - FB (Nation's Best)
David Allen - KR (Nation's Best)

All of these players would fill needs and they are the best at their respective positions and the Chiefs will have the opportunity to draft all of them.

We desperately need a HB. The problem is that KC sucks at developing halfbacks. We'd be wasting a draft pick. We need to pursue one through FA.

Like or not, Carl has invested too much money in Chester and Williams to drop them. The cap hit would be huge. They will be our DT's next year.

I think our biggest need is CB. Hasty will be gone. That leaves us with Dennis, Warfield and Bartee. I'm sorry, but Dennis has not shown me much improvement at all. Warfield can't even beat out Dennis, and Bartee can't beat out either of them. We need CB help bad.

I agree that we also need help at OLB and returns. I'm not sure I'd waste an early pick on a return guy.

We wouldn't have to waste an early pick on a return guy. We could probably land David Allen in the 3rd or 4th round.

And with the luck we've had with return men, I think 3rd round pick would be well worth it.

I still disagree on the need for a HB. I think TRich can do the job capably. He's going to end up with over 1,000 combined yards running and receiving. He has a respectable yards per carry average. I believe he could be top 15 running back if given 80% of the carries.

I do agree that we will need a Corner though. I hope Hasty comes back for one more season.

This team needs a FB that does nothing but block and block well. A crushing blocker with size and speed like Sam Gash. I like Moran Norris out of KU. He considered the best FB in the country right now.

A close second would be that huge 260 pounder out of A&M, I think his name is Tombs?

T-Rich isn't the answer at HB. I hope we can get Garner, but I wouldn't bet on it. I agree with your idea of drafting defense and a returnman though. A big time playmaker at LB would be the best IMO. I haven't followed college football too closely so i'll have to wait until after bowl games and all-star games to make any reccomendations. I think whether it's offense or defense, our team should just pick the best available talent. This team needs playmakers. Also, we need to draft some OLmen (preferably in the middle rounds) to rebuild in the middle.

That would enable TRich to get the ball the vast majority of the time.

He CAN do it. He just get screwed over just like every other RB KC gets their hands on.

Cannibal - I'm not sold on TRich as a HB just yet, and the Donx and Atlanta are not really good judges of a RB potential, not very good run D. I like him as a FB who can do both positions, so hand offs and him out in the flat as a threat is a good thing, you throw in a high quality RB and we will have a backfield that has to be game planned for. Of course I understand if your fear is that any other type of FB a Chiefs coach will try to use as a HB.

I say resign Lockett and use him as punt and kick returns, I like most of what he does back there.

We are going to need to draft some OL as well, shouldn't be a first round pick, both Riley and Tait have the ends covered.

I would like a FA RB, and if one exsists a great DT in the first round. That way we can drop either one of the oft injured DT's that we have now. Also sign Browning, he has done very well, he can spell anyone and now that he is healthy is one of the best lineman we have.<P>

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Browning's locked up for a while. I was one of the only ones (maybe THE only one) that thought this was a good move last offseason. That's when he still had the "injury-prone" tag.

G_man - I thought they only signed him to a one year deal, but wouldn't stake my life on it. Did they give him an extension after last offseason?

I have liked the way he has played at DT, better then DW and Chester. I wasn't sure he could make it through a season, but who knows.

Yes, draft Defense.

There is only one major hole in our Offense, and that is at HB. We should get our HB in FA. Move Riley to ORG and play Alford at ORT. Pick up a young OLG in the middle rounds and patch with FA veterans.

I agree with Morgan for our first pick. Maslowski at MLB, Edwards and Morgan at OLB. I like that crew.

I prefer to leave Richardson at FB and go after a FA HB [Dillon, Garner, Barber, so forth]. I particularly like Richardson and Barber as "Thunder" and "Lightning" in a split backfield.

If Gunther is retained as HC [AUGH!], then we will probably keep Richardson as HB. In that case, get a blocking FB in FA.

Draft OLB, DE [CRUSH that QB], KR/PR and then depth on the OL & DL. I originally wanted to draft a CB, but I think we would be better served with a veteran FA to bolster our rookies [assuming Hasty retires].

You can draft a "diamond in the rough" QB in the later rounds, if you feel like wasting a pick. Our staff is incapable of developing a QB, but hope doth spring eternal, dothent it?

I agree with you two about the need for interior lineman.

Are there any good free agents for the Guard and Cornerback positions.

One guy in the draft that will be a monster at DT, is Roland Seymour out of Georgia. He'll have the same type of impact that Corey Simon is having in Philly. That wouldn't be a bad move either. Put him in there with a rotation of Dan Williams and John Browning and you have a devastating combo at DT.

I must be the only Chiefs fan in the world that thinks TRich is a good Runningback.

People, he has good stats... very good stats considering his limited number of touches and not being allowed to get a in a groove like other RB's. He's excellent receiver out of the backfield.

If they use him these last two games the way they did vs. Carolina he's going to end up with over 1,200 yards from scrimmage. (despite being mis-used horribly)

I just read that Morgan is listed as a MLB, and OLB, so it would make no difference. Another OLB to consider would be Polley, at Florida State. But irregardless, that is the position I would target in the first round. I agree with whomever said we will keep Chet and Dan because of cap considerations, so I would put off drafting a DT until at least next year. RB is maybe the riskiest draft of all. For every Edjarin James, there are 3 or 4 Kijana Carters, so this is applicable to all teams, save the Broncos, not just the Chiefs. The trouble there lies in the salary cap, I think too many people are saying well we will rework all these contracts, and still have the money to pony up for a big name FA. I don't believe this can happen. I just read a report on an AFC team, the Bills I think, that said they were 11 mil over for next year and in serious shape to sign anyone. What does that say about the 40 mil we are over. In closing, let me add, how sad is it, when we are talking off season moves with two weeks left in the season. Gunther and crew must GO. It is a long time until July.

Cannibal-

CB Gary Baxter and DE Karon Riley were also on my short list for first-round pick. They should be available when we draft.

I went with Morgan because that is our most urgent need on D, IMO. Bush did not pan out and Patton is showing some signs of age.

We still do not know what Dennis and Bartee can do in a true bump & run Defense [curses upon the Spineless Stooge and his stinking soft zone], so I would not draft another CB at this time. I would go for a veteran FA CB and see how the kids do next season. But I concede that we might be drafting a CB at #1 in '02.

I love crushed QBs, but I think Hicks and Clemons is a good pair. The addition of Riley at DE would not improve the DL as much as Morgan would improve the LBs, IMO.

Morgan is an OLB, that was moved to the inside due to the loss of Miami's normal starter in the middle.

Morgan is the prototypical OLB and has led the 'Canes in tackles 3 out of the 4 years he's been there.
