Chiefs 2013 draft picks Approval Ratings

Quote:
NFL Draft 2013: Rate KC Chiefs 2013 draft picks
By Joel Thorman on Apr 29 2013, 9:01a

After the Kansas City Chiefs made their 2013 NFL Draft picks, we asked you whether you approved of each pick. The numbers below are the result.


1 (1): OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan: 90%

We were all prepped for this one. By Thursday, it became clear the KC Chiefs were selecting Fisher. If you believe that offensive tackle was the only position the Chiefs should take then it's a coin flip between Fisher and Luke Joeckel, who now wants to prove KC wrong. Fisher is said to be more athletic AND he can play multiple positions such as right tackle or guard. That gives the Chiefs options on this Branden Albert situation. I like this pick because it should work out and long-time readers know I just don't wanna screw it up that high in the draft.

3 (63) TE Travis Kelce, Cincinnati: 80%

This pick is growing on me quite a bit. At first I saw it as a boring pick. A tight end who can block. Doesn't get more boring than that, especially when we did not consider tight end a need. The Chiefs just dropped a multi-year deal on Anthony Fasano, and Tony Moeaki remains on the roster. From that sense I didn't understand it.

But looking into it more, I see what Kelce can bring. He's very versatile and can line up in multiple positions. If he can block and catch -- he was rated the second best tight at doing both of those things in this draft -- he gives Alex Smith a lot of options at the line of scrimmage next season.

3 (96) RB Knile Davis, Arkansas: 49%


This is the lowest-rated draft pick of the weekend and I'm not surprised. Teams can look at a player and talk about scheme to explain why he would fit with your team or they can talk about how they project the player in the league. That's something coaches are experts on. But something everybody can see is injuries.

Davis lost a year in high school due to injury. Same with college. Reid says they're not concerned past history makes it clear as day that they should be concerned. I think that's why people question this pick -- the injuries.

4 (99) LB Nico Johnson, Alabama: 91%

This pick was highly rated by Chiefs fans because it was easy to understand. Johnson plays inside linebacker. The Chiefs have a need at inside linebacker. Boom! Makes sense.

Johnson may only be a two-down linebacker in the pros. As the great KaloPhoenix points out, the Chiefs should be striving for ultimate positional flexibility by putting as many three-down players on the field as possible. Johnson wasn't asked to play much coverage in Nick Saban's scheme so maybe he's actually awesome at it but for now it looks like he's going have a shot at fulfilling the hole left by Jovan Belcher as a two-down player.

5 (134) CB Sanders Commings, Georgia: 84%

Commings is set to play free safety for the Chiefs, challenging Kendrick Lewis, who was picked two spots after this three years earlier. Commings has a past, getting suspended and arrested last season. That brings up fair questions. The Chiefs checked into it and weren't concerned enough to drop him from their board.

Commings figures to be depth in year one and maybe even two. The Chiefs have Kendrick Lewis and perhaps Dunta Robinson to fulfill that safety role. Lewis and Robinson are both year-to-year players so there is a clear path for Commings to one day become a starter.

6 (170) C Eric Kush, California (PA): 70%

Andy Reid said he was a "sleeper pick" around the league. For a sixth round pick, you just want the guy to make the roster and find a role. If Kush can back up at center and another interior offensive line position he could be a good pick.

6 (204) FB Braden Wilson, Kansas State: 72%

Same deal as Kush - you just want your sixth round pick to have a role. Wilson will be competing with a few other fullbacks on the Chiefs roster. If he can make himself useful in multiple ways, like catching the ball out of the backfield, I like this pick.

7 (207) DE Mike Catapano, Princeton: 92%

Good seventh round pick. Catapano was a star in the Ivy League. You're hoping he's a diamond in the rough and can fulfill a backup position. Tamba Hali and Justin Houston are the edge rushers right now.

I'm not overly impressed with this draft class but I also don't know much about any of them outside Fisher.

I've learned one thing about drafts and that is wo wait and see. We all, as well as all the "draft experts" thought we had an AWESOME draft when we drafted Dorsey and Albert - turned out not to be all that after all...

I agree more or less. The third rounders were puzzling, but we do need a TE because Fasano is just a guy. Knile Davis is not what you'd expect to get for a third even if its just a sandwich pick. I don't mind them passing on Barkley because we have Bray to experiment with, but why not do better than Davis here?

The others all sound like good picks

That draft is still ****ing awesome. Flowers and Charles were great picks looking back.

It was a safe and boring draft. No game changers, only depth. Fisher will likely (hopefully) be a great starter for us for a number of years, but outside of that, meh.

Left tackles and tight ends don't win Super Bowls, unfortunately.

This sums up my feelings completely, nothing real exciting looking at all... a tight end who isnt really needed, a back with a recently checkered past, a two down backer etc.

All in all, this draft gets a big, fat meh.

I remember not knowing shit about Carr. So I read up on him and watched whatever footage I could find. I remember thinking, "Damn, this guy could be pretty good." Same deal as Jared Allen.

I've literally felt that way about every single one of these picks (except the center). I hope that trend continues.

I'm not sure how anyone could think TE wasn't a need. Moeaki can't be relied on and Fasano is JAG. The Chiefs traded two premium picks for a QB that throws primarily to the TE and the Chiefs needed to give him more targets.

Before the draft, I was hoping that they could trade down a couple of times and then take Eifert (assuming they weren't going QB).

I think sanders commings travis kelce and nico johnson are all day one starters. Obviously eric fisher will be as well. 4 picks out of the 8 are day one starters and 3 of them were 3rd round or later. I think thats a damn good draft.you guys need to give them a chance.

The simple fact is tight end AND running back are both a need. Jamaal Charles is Jamaal Charles, but as sad as it is, we have to remember that RB is one of the most short-lived careers in the NFL. Without saying Jamaal is injury prone, he has already sustained a season-ending injury. That just shows you that even durable running backs need to have depth. And not just "guy off the street" depth.

Tony Moeaki is no different from Jon Baldwin. One spectacular catch his rookie season. He's done jack squat ever since. Now, they both shared a common hindrance - Matt Cassel - so who knows what happens now? But Moeaki can't stay on the damn field.

Honestly (and I despise saying this) the biggest draft pick up was Alex Smith. I know, I know... we could have waited and got him for free AND drafted Geno in the second. But at the end of the day, let's please not forget just how atrocious watching Matt Cassel attempt to play quarterback was.

We literally haven't been a competent NFL team for two years. I don't believe Alex Smith will win us a playoff game (maybe one if we're lucky), but that said, I think he is light years beyond Matt Cassel. FFS, we had people clamoring for Kyle Orton to be our starter going forward. That's how bad Cassel was.

So, yes... Alex Smith should have a huge impact on this team, if for no other reason, because he will allow players like Moeaki, Baldwin, Charles, Kelce, Bowe, Avery, and Fasano to at least develop and be properly evaluated. With solid QB play, we can actually see who is worth a damn and who needs to hit the road.

I'm not exactly optimistic about the team, but I think I understand what the goal of this offseason was - rescue this franchise from the dregs and make it competitive again.
