KCCrow's 2014 "What I Want" Final Mock

Well, I've finally decided how I want the Chiefs draft to go down. No more Chiefs "what I want" drafts from me this year, enjoy.

Round 1 - Selection 23

Jordan Matthews - WR - Vanderbilt



I like Jimmie Ward and believe he is a clone of Earl Thomas, and also Brandin Cooks who I think is an explosive Percy Harvin type. However, I'm going back the one guy I have had my eye on throughout this entire process as the player Kansas City absolutely should draft, Jordan Matthews. A 6'3" 212 lb. receiver with 4.4 speed, a 6.95 3-cone, a 35" vertical, unbelievable hands, and precise route running skills, I consider Matthews to not only be a prototypical NFL receiver, but the best receiver prospect in the 2014 draft. With that skill set, and a cousin named Jerry Rice to help you along, it's not unfathomable that Matthews could live up to the lofty billing I'm assigning him here. The Chiefs have to get better at receiver, and Matthews has the skill set to take over as a number one the
day KC decides to part ways with Bowe.

Previous Pick: Brandin Cooks - WR - Oregon State

Round 3 - Selection 87

Jack Mewhort - OL - Ohio State



A versatile and highly effective All-American at left tackle, he possesses the thick long frame offensive line coaches love. Mewhort projects as a plug-and-play right guard that can kick out to tackle as a reserve or even start at right tackle. Mewhort is the prototypical Dorsey type of lineman in that he has tackle experience and the versatility to play anywhere. Aside from his size, Mewhort has one of the longest wingspans in the draft, which should only help him latch onto big NFL lineman with ease.

Previous Pick: Jackson Jeffcoat - DE - Texas

Round 4 - Selection 124

Ed Reynolds - FS - Stanford



The talking heads can form their opinions on this guy, but I'm going to form mine too: this is the best safety nobody is talking about. Reynolds proved to be a playmaker in 2012 with 6 interceptions, so teams didn't pass his way in 2013 but Reynolds proved his worth against the run by racking up nealry 90 tackles. Reynolds is a big (6'1" 207), playmaking safety that can come up and support the run and lay the wood. He's alot like Harrison Smith. Berry and Reynolds would give KC a big, physical safety group with coverage skills.

Previous Pick: Trai Turner - OG - LSU

Round 5 - Selection 163

Michael Campanaro - WR - Wake Forest



I don't know that the Chiefs should come out of this draft with less than two receivers. Campanaro is one hell of a good slot receiver, likely the best in this class. He reminds me of Wes Welker, and not because he is white. While he may be a scant 5'9" and 192 lbs, he has a 39" vertical to help make up for it, 4.45 speed, and unreal quickness with a 6.77 3-cone that absolutely stands out on tape. The Chiefs have the opportunity in this draft of turning a decent offense into a quite potent one, capable of keeping pace with a team like Denver. With Bowe, Matthews, and Campanaro, the Chiefs would have a corps very similar to what Denver had last season in Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, and Wes Welker.

Previous Pick: Phillip Gaines - CB - Rice

Round 6 - Selection 193

Travis Carrie - CB - Ohio



Call me enamored with this kid, I just love the way he plays and the leadership he exhibits on the field with his teammates. This guy is a true player, good in press, man, and zone as well as having great tackling ability. His tackling is so good, some scouts see him as a potential free safety. Carrie has near prototypical size at 6'0" 206 lbs. After running a 4.43 40-yd dash, 6.97 3-cone, posting a 41" vertical, and a 10'05" broad jump, there is no reason for anyone to believe there are any lingering effects from his 2012 knee injury. Adding to his intrigue, Carrie happens to be a high quality special teams player, especially as a punt returner.

Previous Pick: Jay Bromley - DT - Syracuse

Round 6 - Selection 200

Morgan Breslin - DE/OLB - USC



Breslin is an absolute beast and likely a 2nd day pick at worst if he didn't injure his hip this season and have surgery. The guy had 17.5 sacks in 18 games with the Trojans. He recorded at least a half sack in 12 of those 18 games, so he had fairly consistent production. He reportedly played around 255 at USC but showed up to his pro day at 6'1" and 240 pounds, and it looks like he can add to his frame. Kansas City desperately needs some better depth at outside rush linebacker behind Tamba Hali and Justin Houston, and Breslin can offer just that. Breslin could end up being an outstanding steal in this draft after running in the 4.6's and posting a 35-1/2" vertical at his pro day with 26 bench reps to boot.

Previous Pick: Rajion Neal - RB - Tennessee

How they fit:

QB Alex Smith, Chase Daniel
RB Jamaal Charles, Knile Davis, Joe McKnight
FB Anthony Sherman
TE Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce, Sean McGrath
WR Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery, A.J. Jenkins
WR Jordan Matthews, Michael Campanaro
LT Eric Fisher
LG Jeff Allen, Rishaw Johnson
OC Rodney Hudson, Eric Kush
RG Jack Mewhort, Jeff Linkenbach
RT Donald Stephenson

DE Vance Walker, Mike Catapano
DE Mike DeVito, Allen Bailey
NT Dontari Poe, Jaye Howard
OLB Tamba Hali, Morgan Breslin
ILB Derrick Johnson, James-Michael Johnson
ILB Joe Mays, Nico Johnson
OLB Justin Houston, Frank Zombo
CB Sean Smith, Travis Carrie
CB Brandon Flowers, Marcus Cooper, Chris Owens
FS Ed Reynolds, Sanders Commings
SS Eric Berry, Husain Abdullah

K Ryan Succop
P Dustin Colquitt
LS Thomas Gafford

Now, don't get me wrong. I have Cooks rated my #2 WR so it isn't like I don't like him.

Height is not the reason I love Matthews. Here is what I think about Matthews.

1. Most precise router runner I've seen on tape, runs the whole tree and takes advantage of mismatches.
2. I'm not sure how to term this, but the best hands catcher and one of the best high pointers in the draft.
3. Superb quickness out of breaks, that with #1 allow him to consistently create separation.
4. Solid long speed, with long stride ability to keep defenders behind him.
5. Great sideline awareness
6. Great ability to shield defenders and adjust to poorly thrown balls.
7. Great size and height, to create mismatches against smaller defenders and go toe-to-toe with bigger defenders.
8. Durable, and appears he will remain durable.
9. Top flight production in the SEC his entire career.
10. Good length and hand size, producing a huge catch radius coupled with great vision to take advantage of it.
11. Great strength for a wideout and solid blocking ability
12. Has shown the ability to make the toughest catches, and make catches in traffic.
13. The magic number... His mentor and cousin is the best the league has ever had play the position, and it shows in his work ethic and precision.
14. Great run after catch, YAC receiver.
15. Is productive in the red zone, a testament to his height and vertical yes.

I might could continue, but I'm sure you get the point by now. This guy has everything I look for in an elite caliber WR. I think its a mistake to overlook this kid. In that list I made, you will not find some of those traits in Brandin Cooks as much as I like the kid. Yes, size does matter, but its not the only thing.

Devin Street and I think Mike Davis as well have #1 potential.

Dude...

That's ****ing nuts considering the level of talent in this draft.

Tell me what Latimer has over a guy like Devin Street, who could be had in the 3/4th round.

Latimer is being severely overrated.

In this draft, you are going to take a Big 10 receiver that couldn't get beyond the conference Honorable Mention team?

Nuts.

I'm going to use the same argument that everyone else uses against drafting interior linemen in the 1st round.

Great slot WRs can be found in the mid to late rounds in the draft. That's especially true in this draft which is the deepest its been in a while, especially at the WR position.

Wes Welker - UDFA HOF QBs
Victor Cruz - UDFA HOF QB
Randall Cobb - Round 2 Pick 64 HOF QB
Danny Amendola - UDFA 1 year of production + HOF QB
Lance Moore - UDFA HOF QB
Kendall Wright - 1st round pick 20
Cecil Shorts III - 4th round pick 114
Doug Baldwin - UDFA
T.Y. Hilton - 3rd round, pick 92
etc.

I think you get the picture now.
One could make arguments that Short is GT productive and Baldwin and Hilton play outside quite a bit.


Additionally, it could very well be the case that Baldwin and Hilton are also playing with HOF QBs.

I've been secretly on the Matthews bandwagon for a while. If I were going to take a chance on someone it would be him. Aside from all the intangibles you mentioned, he has the pedigree. There have been others that come from NFL families that did not have successful NFL careers but for some reason the work ethic of Jerry Rice as a role model is something I'm willing to bet has been instilled in this guy. He is following in his uncles footsteps so I would think he would have something to prove. All speculation of course but I would role the dice on this guy. I wouldn't want to be known as the NFL executive that passed on the "second" Jerry Rice!

Cody Latimer has the Buzz Factor, plus he's a good fit for the Chief's offense.
