I wouldn't have been a fan at #31, because I felt we had bigger fish to fry.

But you just really can't argue with getting a consensus late first/early second player at a position of need at #58.

I mean that's real good value. And I think he's probably Hitchens' replacement in 2022 as well.

He's just rill good at football.

Orlando Brown and Creed Humphrey too.

We’re bringing friends together here!

It does really help.

I mean, might seem silly, but it does.

Oh for sure. Absolutely.

I wonder if Veach can get anything for Allegretti and Wylie? I mean he did turn Parker Ehinger into Ward.

You’d think Allegretti will have some value as cheap depth with C/G versatility and starting experience. Maybe a 6th?

It has to be. They can save a ton of cap room by going with Bolton.

Quite frankly, if that's the plan, it's a very good one.

Everybody knows I'm not high on drafting LB's high but it's still all about value. We got a guy that had value in the 30-35th pick range at 58. That's a tremendous get, regardless of position.

And no I don't think Bolton is a jump-off-the-page athlete. But the simple fact is that the kid is a very good all-around LB. He doesn't have a ton of weakness, he's not one-dimensional.

Freakish athleticism is all well and good on the outside but in many ways, you want your MLB to quick, smart, and fearless. I think that's what Bolton brings.

That's just the thing. Positional value doesn't just flat out trump player value.

We got a guy at 58 that probably should have gone about 25 picks higher. That's a tremendous amount of value, much more than you gave up taking a LB over say, a DE.

In the end, Bolton was a high value pick and he'll be even more so once Hitchens and his salary are gone.

AND he's a high floor player, in my opinion.

He's not going to Dorian O'Daniel on you.

He's smart, and instinctive. He's not going to suck.

I agree with this, he is a MLB! His lack of overall speed is offset by his ability to read the play quickly. Allowing a quicker first jump to the play( hole ) and meanness to hit the ball carrier.

If he brings that to the pro level, it will serve him well as a run stopper, as well as sweeps, screens and quick slants.

If Bolton turns out to be our next great LB- it might be fate that the pick was #58. That is a good number in Chiefs history.
