Show/Hide All Player Comments Round (Overall) Pos Name College Cls Height Weight 40
Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (1st) UT Sheldon Richardson Missouri rJr 6'3 1/8" 290 lbs. 4.89
 

Analysis: Eric Fisher is more than worthy of the top overall selection. If the Chiefs intend to sign Branden Albert to a long-term deal, however, a #1 overall pick for a ROT begins to make less sense for the team. Still largely unproven, Dontari Poe is the only interior D-lineman on the roster from whom you can expect A-gap pressure. Richardson is an absolute terror who would give KC's defense the ability to attack from the interior, thus creating favorable matchups for OLBs Tamba Hali and Justin Houston.

Show/Hide Player Comments 3rd (63rd) TE Travis Kelce Cincinnati rSr 6'5 1/4" 260 lbs. 4.58
 

Analysis: I love this pick. If Tony Moeaki can stay healthy, the Chiefs have one of the league's top duos at the position. Expect to see the Alex Smith control the middle of the field in the passing game, and expect frequent two-TE sets in the Kansas City offense.

Show/Hide Player Comments 3rd (96th) NT Jesse Williams Alabama Sr 6'3 1/4" 320 lbs. 5.28
 

Analysis: Strictly from a player procurement perspective, drafting a potential starter on the defensive line makes more sense than taking a HB (a position where depth behind Jamaal Charles could be added after the draft). Three-down nose tackles don't grow on trees, and Williams is just that. He's strong as an ox, and has shown the ability to push the pocket from any of three positions up front in the Chiefs' base defense. Both players come with injury concerns, but games are won in the trenches.

Show/Hide Player Comments 4th (99th) SILB Nico Johnson Alabama Sr 6'1 7/8" 249 lbs. 4.63
 

Analysis: Another pick I can't argue with. Johnson gives the Chiefs a two-down thumper to complement Derrick Johnson inside. He has limited instincts in pass coverage, but he is a solid run defender who is more than capable of punishing ball carriers from his SILB spot.

Tyler Wilson would have made sense here as well, but I trust that Andy Reid knows what he is looking for in a quarterback for his offense, so I defer to his judgement here.

Show/Hide Player Comments 5th (134th) CB Sanders Commings Georgia rSr 5'11 7/8" 223 lbs. 4.54
 

Analysis: Commings provides excellent value pick this late in the draft. He has the size and physical talent to make an immediate impact on special teams, and has real potential to develop into a starting safety in time. He also has the coveted physical traits of a press-cover corner, though he is a bit choppy transitioning out of his backpedal, leading me to believe safety will be his best fit in the NFL.

Quanterus Smith was available here as well, and you can never have enough pass rushers.

Show/Hide Player Comments 6th (170th) 43DE Cornelius Washington Georgia rSr 6'4" 264 lbs. 4.68
 

Analysis: Eric Kush fared well at the East West Shrine practices, and was obviously the top player on the Chiefs' board at a position at which they wanted to acquire depth.

They are also thin behind Tamba Hali and Justin Houston at outside linebacker. Washington has experience at multiple positions on the defensive front, and is an explosive athlete. He played 5-technique for Georgia in 2012, but his 2011 tape demonstrates that Washington has some definite ability as a pass rusher off the edge.

Show/Hide Player Comments 6th (204th) FB Braden Wilson Kansas St. rSr 6'2 3/4" 254 lbs. 4.80
 

Analysis: The Chiefs finished fifth in the league in rushing (149.7 yards/game) and sixth in yards per attempt (4.8).

Wilson is a 6-foot-4, 251-pound fullback who was a stud blocker for Kansas State. His selection here demonstrates a commitment on the part of the Chiefs to pound the football at opposing defenses. Wilson will start from Day 1, and should help the Chiefs maximize the value Jamaal Charles brings to their offense.

Show/Hide Player Comments 7th (207th) HB Dennis Johnson Arkansas rSr 5'8 1/8" 212 lbs. 4.52
 

Analysis: Again, proper player procurement procedure would have me acquire halfback prospects after the draft, particularly if I have Jamaal Charles already on the roster.

Still, Johnson provides added value as a returner on special teams, and is SEC-approved, or proven capable of functioning as the featured back in the event that Charles goes out with an injury. I actually preferred Johnson as a prospect to the Chiefs' 3rd-round pick, Johnson's college teammate Knile Davis.

I like pretty much all of the changes here. I love Davis but Johnson 4 rounds later seems like better value. Washington was pretty impressive in the post-season. With Richardson and Williams on the DL, that D is getting beefy. Lots of SEC love here.
