Wow....this is one scathing post regarding CP and his drafting personality. As much as I don't like CP, I honestly don't see him doing this, but you never know. This is their mock draft for this season and what they expect out of the Chiefs.

Source: http://walterfootball.com/draft2008.php

Let me ask you a question. Say you have a top-five pick, and you're looking at three talented players to draft with your selection. One of the guys might be slightly higher rated than the other two, but he has had chronic knee problems the past two years. He didn't miss any time, but he's always been in pain. Upon examining the player at the hospital instead of watching him working out at the combine, one doctor says he has major concerns about the prospect's knees. A week later, there are reports of other injuries no one even knew about. So, do you take a major risk and pray that his body holds up for 8-10 seasons, or do you take the slightly lesser talent, knowing that lingering injuries definitely won't be a problem?

It looks like some team may gamble on Glenn Dorsey, especially after seeing him work out in the flesh at LSU's Pro Day. I, however, wouldn't take the risk in the first five selections. At No. 9, maybe. Not at No. 5.

However, we've seen Kansas City general manager Carl Peterson screw up draft after draft. In fact, from all of the Chiefs' drafts from 2000 to 2005, there are currently only six players on the roster (thanks to forum poster titan_qb_3 for pointing out that embarrassing stat). Of all the teams atop the 2008 Draft, the squad most likely to spend a top pick on a major injury risk (think Courtney Brown) is the Chiefs, which is actually pretty sad because the Raiders are slotted at No. 4.

Look, I hope I'm wrong about Dorsey. He was a dominant player at LSU and I hope he has a great NFL career. I just wouldn't recommend spending a top selection on a guy so brittle. But with Jake Long unavailable, it looks like that's what Kansas City is going to do.

But what about Matt Ryan? Not a chance. Once again, Matt Ryan's not a top-five prospect. I heard about the Chiefs sending the 64,000 people to his Pro Day. Think about this though - if Kansas City was really that interested in him, why would it make it so public? Remember, the Broncos drafted Jay Cutler without even interviewing him. GMs and coaches are so paranoid, if you hear them say one thing, you generally should believe the opposite.

I think Dorsey's too big of a risk to take at #5. I wouldn't do it.

IF the Chiefs take him, I sure hope I'm wrong...

I think the Chiefs expressed so much interest in their visit of Ryan, to try to lure trades of those who think they might take him....

They should pretend to love EVERYONE coveted by top 12 teams.

Dorsey would be a freaking steal at #5. Chiefs would have one of the best DL's in football and the rest of the defense would be better as well.
