Your Draft: first three rounds.

Try to keep it relatively realistic.

What are your three picks. Assume that we have the #5 spot in the Draft, just to be conservative.

Feel free to explain your picks.

Does it really have to be the 5th spot?

As for me, I am convinced the Chiefs want to go DE with their first pick, but there doesn't seem to be any DEs that warrant, at this time, a top 5 pick. I like Michael Johnson, I like Brian Orakpo, I like George Selvie -- but they are flirts with the #10 selection rather than the #5. I'm not going to bet my life on them trading down, but it sure wouldn't surprise me.

That said, the Chiefs trade down anywhere from 9 to 15 so they feel less self conscious about going DE. Some other team reaches for Orakpo, so the Chiefs, with the 10th overall pick in the Draft, go for Michael Johnson. No word on exactly what the Chiefs received in return.

In the second round, Alex Mack has fallen for no discernable reason other than the fact that rarely does anymore than 1 interior lineman go in the first round, and the Steelers already opted for Duke Robinson. Mack drops a bit and the Chiefs pounce for their second rounder.

Their third rounder, one imagines, has to concern itself again with the front seven. They end up taking Dannell Ellerbe from Georgia for MLB, a fast player who has done nothing but rack up great numbers for a solid SEC defense.

1. DE Michael Johnson, Georgia Tech
2. C Alex Mack, California
3. MLB Dannell Allerbe, Georgia

I'm going to be honest if they take Michael Johnson with a top 5 pick I'm going to lose it.

I'm betting the farm on them trading down. It makes perfect sense, considering no DE is really worth that high of a pick, and this team needs to stockpile draft choices anyway. Our Top 5 pick is ****ing wholesale.

Is there any doubt right now we go DE with our first pick?

It's probably going to be a reach then because it's not easy to drop out of a top 5 pick.

We almost did it last year with the Saints.

It's not easy but people are always willing to buy the farm if the right person drops.

Who are you gonna move for....after the top 3 players go you get into this debate about who's worth the pick who's this who's that.

Good question. It's especially hard to say any team is entirely intent on Oher or any of the other tackles because there's three of them this year.

I'm not going to posit any hypotheticals to that regard just yet, it'll get way more interesting in April. I will say that none of the DEs look elite to me. The one I'd think about even throwing a Top 10 at would be Orakpo, but even then I think he and MJ are 10-15 picks at best. Selvie's a midrounder.

All of this is subject to change, but right now I don't see it.

I'll bite at #5.

1st Round - Sam Bradford, QB Oklahoma (I'm assuming he comes out and that DET, CIN, STL, OAK are ahead of us) other choices: Mays or Rey
I would like Cutler (Stafford) but we get Rivers instead, Mays is such a freak and makes you want him so bad but you can't pass up a franchise quarterback if you dont have one.

2nd Round - Alex Mack, C California other choices: Maurice Evans
This is assuming Spikes is gone. Mack is a stud, I think we could have a Pro Bowl center for 10 plus years with him and with our young QB we need protection. Also if you look at the NFL dyntasy's center has been a big part of their success.

3rd Round - Micah Johnson, LB Kentucky
I am assuming he comes out. He could be a stud MLB in the NFL. Size, speed, smarts about everything you want.

What the Chiefs will do and should do are two very different things.

First, I think the Chiefs absolutely must make a very strong play for Julius Peppers in the free agent market. And Jordan Gross.

If they get Peppers, the strategy becomes pretty clear:

Trade down #5 to #9 or #10 for a 2nd round pick

Draft Maualuga or Laurinitis
2nd round #1 - Alex Mack, C, LSU
2nd round #2 (via trade) - Ebbon Britton, T,

3rd round - Either Derrick Williams, WR, Penn State or Matt Shaughnessy, DE, Wisconsin

QB/Maualuga up-top( yes Myrtle; a solid, attacking LB absolutely warrants such "idiocy" at this point ). One to follow the other.

After that, look for augmentation on both lines. I'm thinking one-draft/one FA on each.

If TG is gone, look for a possible TE FA, though I'm pretty sure if he leaves; the importance on TE in the overall Offensive Scheme goes with him. Which leaves the running game.
If LJ is gone, bump Attack Back up before line selection.
After all that; stack that Defense with everything you need to promote rivalry and competition.

DCS has spoken.

I'd actually love Maurice Evans over Mack in the 2nd.

I just don't see him getting that far. DE is one of those positions that 100% of teams need.
