This was genius.

The Chiefs did not have the value at the positions that they wanted, so they traded down until they did.

They received twice as much value from the Browns (~250 points) that the jump from the Trade Chart suggested the jump would be worth (~120 points).

They traded the pick to a team that wasn't leapfrogging anybody in particular (the Colts weren't going to select Taylor).

And then they landed a player who has Pro Bowl potential, who is a deep threat, and can keep defenses honest. At a one-pick discount, too, since the Ravens weren't on the board.

All while landing us an EARLY 3rd round pick.

Bravo, Pioli. Bravo.

Sometimes I think character concerns are overblown, i still think Mallett will be the best QB from the class.

He impacts both of those areas.

In addition, we mysteriously slide up a pick AND we score another pick in this year's draft.

So, the pick scores an "A" Even if he doesn't make the Pro Bowl. Just as long as he becomes another solid receiver to keep the defense from boxing in our running game and double/triple teaming Bowe.

This pick immediately gives our TE's more room. And it gives McCluster a little more freedom. Charles will benefit from this pick as well. But he didn't need any more benefit for being one of the best, if not THE best back in football already.

Nice to see Pioli is capable of taking calculated chances when the possible reward is worthwhile.

It's one thing to be a Diva on the college level at Pitt, it's another thing to be an NFL rookie in a locker room full of grown men. Maybe Derrick Johnson will talk to Baldwin about all the special consideration first round picks get on Haley's depth chart.

Now, we get an OT in the 3rd-5th round. The way it should be.

Were any firearms involved? Drugs? Was said touching the beating of a woman? And if so what did she do to deserve it?

10x easier to pluck an OL gem out of the later rounds than a big stud wideout.

It's the greatest gift ever. We get a stud WR across from Bowe, and the #70.
Happy Birthday! I guess last year was the best birthday evah, hope this years is just as good. Interesting about the trade value.

The Ravens' gaff threw everything off kilter. I don't think there was an intentional snub.

Minus the drama, I hope, but yes.

I think with the culture now in place in KC, I think the environment will be fine for him, at least I hope so.

On the other hand, it did took them awhile to axe Larry Johnson, so, there is some cause of concern about that.

But, in all, it's a good pick, solid pick. Not like a 26 year old canadian, who haven't played football in high school.

I'd say Mallet's problem isn't his character, it's his decision making on the field. He's got all the physical attributes/abilities you could ever want, and I'm not really concerned about his mobility, but I'm not convinced that I'd want him out there with 2 minutes to go in the playoffs, because odds are he's going to going to do something that leaves you shaking your head.
