12/13/11 Nightfyre Mock Draft

Assumptions:
1) We are able to move up to pick third without compromising any of this year's selections (for simplicity's sake.)
2) We re-sign Bowe and Carr
3) We sign Paul Soliai and Ben Grubbs to a five year deal.
4) We sign Dan Koppen to a two-year deal.

1) Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
6'2" 220 lbs.
The number two QB on my notional big board. The Chiefs likely need to move up to secure him. Excellent poise, arm strength, mobility and accuracy. He is terrific about setting his feet. Concerns include pre-snap reads, footwork from under center and durability.

2) Dont'a Hightower, ILB, Alabama
6'4" 260 lbs.
A cerebral and talented linebacker to put next to DJ. He also is well-versed in Crennel's system having played at Alabama under Nick Saban. Call's the defense for Alabama. He is as ready-to-play as they come and has the potential to be an impact player for the Chiefs.

3) William Vlachos, C, Alabama
6'1" 295 lbs.
Vlachos anchored the Alabama O-line for Trent Richardson. He is an athletic, pulling center with the strength to hold up at the point of attack. A perfect fit for our current blocking scheme. Hardworker, student of the game type by all reports.

4) Vick Ballard, RB, Mississippi State
5'11" 215 lbs.
I can't claim to know a lot about Ballard. But from what I have read, he is a three-down back who could be the workhorse complement to Charles.

5) Andrew Datko, OT, Florida State
6'6" 321 lbs.
Shoulder concerns have dropped this once second round prospect to a late round selection. Evidently he had shoulder surgery that "didn't take" the first go-around. He is a boom or bust fashion pick. When he did play, he had trouble handling speed rushers.

6) Tony Dye, SS, UCLA
5'11" 204
Another player whose stock has been adversely impacted by an injury riddled season. Dye suffered a neck injury followed by a leg injury this season. He is good in run support and adequate in coverage and should back-up Berry. He is another boom or bust type selection given the injury history

7) Elvis Akpla, WR, Montana State
6'1" 190 lbs.
Call it a homer selection, but I promise this guy will play on Sundays. If you watched Montana State get pummeled by Sam Houston on Saturday (the 10th) on ESPN, you would have gotten a taste for his circus-like catching capabilities. This guy has been a play maker for Montana State all year both with terrific catches and good field vision and RAC capabilities. I don't know that we have won a game without a big play from Akpla. Bonus #1, he plays special teams well. Bonus #2, he is a speedy guy. He transfered from Oregon after they ruled that his track scholarship would still count as a football scholarship if he played there. Bonus #3, he made Trumaine Johnson, a second round DB prospect from the University of Montana, look like he was wearing clown shoes.

If you are bringing in Grubbs and Koppen you don't need a C in round three. With Soliai, you don't need to pick up a NT.


After Griffin or Barkley in the first we would need to just select best player available IMO.

Koppen will be brought in as depth and a veteran presence on the o-line. Grubbs allows us to use Hudson as guard/center depth. Vlachos will need a year of development before he is ready to start, but ultimately will fill the center hole on a long-term basis. Hudson is damn good guard depth.

Also, I didn't draft a NT.

I like Hudson at G but him at C with Grubbs at G is a great line setup. Pick up a RT and it's good to go.


I was saying the NT thing more based on not having to look for one and just going BPA.

Well, if Tannehill is there in the third, I see no problem drafting another QB. I was thinking Kirk Cousins might also be a good pickup in the fourth or fifth. Purge this team of Cassel and let Orton walk for the comp pick. Three young QBs competing for the job could be fun to watch.

O. City, shame to see that you have Ty Hilton as an option in the third, but not Marvin McNutt... McNutt has fantastic hands, size, adequate speed and has been consistently productive throughout his career. Fantastic after the catch.

Also, I don't think Upshaw lasts until our second unless we're trading up...

Sorry aturnis. I didn't put this together I got it from another thread.

Agree that I don't think Upshaw makes it to the second. He is an OLB in a 34. Could see him ending up in Pittsburgh.

BTW I bolded my wanna be picks above.

Not only would they reenergize the fan base as there is a heisman winner and heisman finalist in there they would make this team better.

Or picked at 32 to the Packers at the latest.

I don't see Baltimore letting Grubbs go in FA. I like the idea of going after Soliai from Miami. I'd also go after C Myers from Houston. He, Williams and Foster are all eligible for FA and i don't see them signing all three.

I'm not going to get my hopes up for a 1st round QB but we'll see. I like RB Polk in the second and WR Wright in the third. Somehow they have to get a new RT.

Would like to see the Chief's play Hudson, Powe, Stanzi and maybe even a little Mims these last three games to see what they've got.

For a Chief offense with a weak armed QB, McNutt is a good selection.

Hilton is really really fast, but we would need a strong armed QB to exploit that...
