This is straight from the other board. One of the better topics I've seen there in a few months and I hope the response is duplicated here for those that don't participate on kc.com(Credit to Rod Mcmillan).

Where are our weaknesses & what should we draft for next year? I'd like to see a PK drafted late that can also boom kickoffs. I think Sauerbraun is being distracted by kicking off & is being thrown because the mechanics are different. I want him to concentrate on punting. Reading between the lines on Gun's defense of Sauerbraun, I think he feels the same. I'd like to see a CB picked first. Someone with the skills to also possibly return kicks would be helpful. Is there a Champ Bailey Jr. available next year?

Your thoughts?

I think CB was thoroughly addressed in the last draft, and there's always Warfield to fall back on.

I still wanna see a QB or RB taken with a high first round pick.

Michael Vick or Deuce McAllister, preferably!

Clint,

I don't follow College as much as I used to but do you think Vick is an NFL style QB? I think he's another Kordell waiting to happen....

Phobia - I like Moreau... but I don't see him as a featured back. Just like all of our other average backs, he has only warranted 5-10 carries per game (as per the way our 'coaches' have utilized him). If he couldn't take the starting spot from Cloud this week, then we obviously need to find that elusive 'go-to' RB.

CB should be a priority again, as Hasty will likely retire this time around. I don't know that we'd find a Champ Bailey-type player though. He is to CBs what Jevon Kearse is to DEs. This year's top CB prospects Deltha O'Neal and Rashard Anderson (converted to Safety by Carolina) haven't shown that kind of potential.

I'd like a [b]STUD RB[/b] too. Especially if Gun is no longer coaching for some reason. That way he'd hopefully get a chance to prove himself. Then again, in a new system, maybe one of our existing plethora of HBs would be good enough.......Moreau is good, and I hope he'll continue to show good vision and power-running, but he hardly has Fred Taylor/Edgerrin James kind of potential.

It's time to draft a top flight QB for development also. Chris Redman would have been a nice pick-up last season, he slipped further than I expected and became an [b]absolute steal[/b] in the 3rd round for the Ravens. He has 1st round talent IMO, but after last year's QB extravaganza, I think this year's class might have been underestimated.

We'll likely need a new QB crusher also. Our D-line is thinned by injuries already, Browning is unreliably injury-prone, Clemons is only on a 1-year contract, Word didn't pan out, Dan Williams has to have several more 2-sack games before he justifies his cap-number, Steve Martin has been invisible as far as I can tell....etc......

I don't think QB is a draft need this year. Like him or not, EG is probably with us for another 5 years. I also don't see any QB's coming out that would A) fall to us, B) would be worth a #1 pick at that point. (Vick would be a top 5 pick. Brees isn't a 1st rnd pick at all)

We most likely won't have a shot at McCalister. The most likely RB we'd have a chance at would be Travis Henry from Tenn. He looked [b]real[/b] good against FL.

The guy that has piqued my interest is Dan Guy from Jackson State. He's 6'1" 200+lbs with 4.3 speed. I still don't think we have our burner at WR. This guy seems a smaller quicker version of Morris and might fit the role.

A defensive tackle would be good but I don't think a 1st round need, unless one of the top guys falls.

Chuck,

Like Nebraska backs, I've never been a fan of Tennessee's backs in the NFL. Both program's products have typically underachieved recently in the NFL, IMHO.

Can't argue with you there, but Jamal Lewis has looked great in Balt when he was healthy. He busted several long ones last week. And Henry has the same stats and subbed for Lewis when injured.

Actually I'm not seeing any standout RB's that we'd have a real shot at getting. I'm not willing to do a Ditka to get McCalister.<P>

Chuck,

I am happy with Grbac as our QB for as long as he is healthy/productive. The reason I would like to see us draft a QB in the 2001 draft (like Redman or Rattay i.e. 3rd or 4th rounder with potential) is to develop a decent back-up. We currently have back-ups with no real upsides. Back-ups get a whole lot of PT and it's an important position to have filled. If we were lucky, one might dislodge Grbac as starter if good enough in a few years. If not, then we still might have time to try to draft again before Grbac is gone.

BTW, I totally agree with your opinion of Brees.

If EG is still in thier plans then a mid round QB. If not trade up to get a franchise type if available.

If we are drafting late 1st again, then trade down if we can get extra #2 or #3 in this year (this assumes that a starter at G, C, or LB is not available).

Guard, Center, LineBacker are our weakest points. RBBC is here to stay because of the salary cap and offensive philosophy.

1st round: best available athlete at HB, QB or DE.

2nd round: best available athlete at HB, QB, or DE whoever wasn't taken in the first at that position.

3rd round: best kicker.

Carl is good/great at finding late round DB's so I wouldn't pick one in the first round.

The positions I think the Chiefs need to target are, in no particular order, QB, RB, OT, DL, CB. Take the best athlete available at those positions when the picks come up.

I'd make RB a priority. I'm through with the RBBC thing. Get a legit featured back and Grbac also improves. Shoot. I bet it would even make Raye look good!
