May be weird but I think they may take an ILB. I don't agree and hope they don't.

Coach

I think the higest rated player on the board heading into pick 2a will be a WR.

Berry is a playmaker we needed badly.. Also an instant emotional leader, biggest heart in the draft..

Next I would go ILB maybe WR depending on who is there..

I like this pick, KC needs a good strong safety in the backfield to help out in pass protection and against the run. They need O-line help too, but a Ed Reed type of player (fingers crossed) is the best choice here.

I always thought you built from the inside out. But Berry is a Chief and I'm good with that!! He seems like the right 53 type and Flowers was wanting him to come to the Chiefs the whole time. Should be a pretty good D backfield. Now, will Quinten Lawrence give up #14?

I said for the last 4 months I didn't think there was a chance the Chiefs would take him. Yesterday I did say I was leaning towards they might take him. But the fact that they actually did take him, I'm still kinda shocked....AND VERY STOKED! So here I am, coming out and saying it, I have been completely and utterly wrong over the last 4 months.

That said, can't wait to see this kid play. Secondary is pretty much set. Let's get Kindle at 36 and we instantly have a pass rush. Maybe Cam Thomas or Tate if he's there at 50. Loving the way this draft is looking, a lot of projected first rounders falling into the early 2nd.

I heard Mortensen talking tonight on ESPN radio that Kansas City might be thinking of trading up to have a shot at Claussen since he is on the books still. While I wouldn't mind seeing the local Southern California boy in Chiefs red, I just don't see the need in QB that everyone else seems to think we have.

I think it's a mistake, but have thought that if he falls to round 2, Charlie is gonna be all over everyone's *** to get him.

I'd like to say we're set at QB. There are a lot of other positions that could be addressed in the 2nd round. The defense still needs help.

I knew someone would say it, hahaha. There were sure many who said we'd never take Berry. Never say never! :D

I was at the Draft Day Party tonight held inside the training facility at Arrowhead. I was jumping up & down yelling with joy, as were many others...when our pick was announced as Eric Berry. I thought of Aussie too...knowing how happy he'd be as well.
:yahoo:

I was pretty sure Pioli would indeed take Berry. Berry is a win win pick for Pioli, makes intelligent business sense from every aspect of a GM's point of view:

1) Berry is a playmaker
2) Berry fulfills a critical need
3) Berry was a popular choice among a majority of fans...a good GM consider's the fans voice, especially when fans are unhappy with their team.
4) Berry will help boost ticket sales...assuming he lives up to expectations.

Golden tate please.

I'm in the same exact boat. I do like Berry but I think an OT would of been a better choice. Reaching for a Safety at the point does bother me. But right now we need to get a better pass rush up front to see the full potential of Berry. So DT is next or LB.

But I guess at least we have a GM now that is trying to make the team better with good drafting unlike Peterson.

04-23-2010, 03:38 AM
I am ok with Berry. Hope he can play here, and perform up to the lofty expectations. If he does, then he will be an amazing addition.

When I saw that Washington passed on Okung, I got my hopes up. But, yet again, the theory of "the piss-poor play we have had is good enough" reigned supreme. So, as with each of the past four drafts, the O-line is again underappreciated.

However, there are still a couple of top OT prospects available. Should they slip past the first four picks tomorrow, then maybe we can see a legitimate attempt to improve that are of the team.

I'll have my fingers crossed.:D

And so it continues, does 8 sacks given up in like 9 games mean anything to people? And like you said, the draft isn't over.

blah blah so we didn't get the not top linemen this draft were going to get some steals later in the draft guys, deep linemen and the top ones this year werent elite there bellow alberts level of play, were gonna find some great linemen late in the draft gotta remember where will shields came from and wiegmann waters this guys weren't high picks

04-23-2010, 05:10 AM
You people seem to have forgotten that we've already upgraded our OL and drafting one with the first pick isn't as much a priority as it was, say, 6 months ago.

I'm thrilled that we got Berry. We do need to draft OL but between Lilja and Wiegmann there was no need to go out in the first round to do it.

I will be disappointed, however, if we don't take an OL with one of our 2nd round picks.

No. That doesn't mean anything to people.

Now, if you prefer to discuss the 18 sacks that they gave up in the last nine games, then I'd like to add that it was 45 sacks in 16 games.

Yes, they allowed fewer sacks and the team managed some solid rushing numbers down the stretch. But an NFL season is 16 games long.

I have hoped for two years that Albert would emerge as a good LOT. But it hasn't happened yet, and the rest of this o-line is just as suspect as any area of this team.

Just pointing out that they managed to look good for four or five games does not remove that they looked terrible for the previous 40+ games.

Love the Berry Pick. Most of the Sacks came up the middle. We have improved that with the release of Wade Smith and the Addition of Lilja and Weigman. Dont forget we will have Brown back this year.
Dont see us going O line until 4th round and then will be C/OG
Next pick
Wow Cody, Tate, or Kindle whichever is there.

Or we could just get Taylor Mays as well. Mays/Berry??. My #1 choice for pick 2a would be Sergio Kindle, then Bruce Cambell(RT value), then Tate/Benn, then Saffold. Cody will be there at 50 and if he isn't, oh well. He's not a player worth trading up for imo.

With a top 5 pick, IMO it is more important to draft the best available talent than it is to draft because of need. In fact I think that's important most of the time when you have more than 1 deficiency on your team. I think we accomplished that yesterday. Having said that, most of you know how much I harp on the O line needs, let's hope we can improve a little from here.

I am the polar opposite.

In the first round, you are gonna get a guy who you expect to have starting immediately, and making a significant upgrade to that position.

In the second round, you get players that you really want to have starting right away, and think they could be an upgrade at their position.

The third round, you take guys who have a decent chance of starting, right away, or in a year or so.

Beyond that, it becomes part-timers and long-shots.

So, you have three rounds in which you are looking for players who can start, and possibly upgrade their FULL-TIME positions.

And that is why I want to be very selective of which positions I am addressing. I don't want to upgrade a minor position, nor make a minor upgrade to any position, if there is a major upgrade to one of the most important positions to my team.

At the very least, the positional concept has to be taken into account. If you have Tom Brady and he has just won his second Super Bowl, you don't use your top pick on a QB, rather he is the most talented, or not. And, you don't take a Kicker at #2 overall, even if he is the most talented player in the draft.

You can't be pure of either concept. You can't go in with your mind made up that you are getting "position A" in the first. Just like you can't go in with a "Most talented guy available" mindset.

You don't think Berry is that?

I don't know, this whole post I can't make anything out of....You don't go with the mindset that you get the best player at a position, but you also don't go with the most talented guy.

If you're trying to say we should go with the best player that fits "any" need, ok, I got ya. How does Berry not fit that?

I hear ya that he doesn't fulfill one of the front 7/O-line positions, but the Chiefs did make some moves in free agency to address these needs. I'm gonna trust the judgement of the guys who evaluate this stuff every single day of their lives to say, "Hey, we're comfortable with the O-line and front 7 now, let's get the best player in the draft to address a big need we have at safety."

Again, I'm also one of the guys that was totally on the "No way we draft Berry bandwagon." Can't say I'm disappointed though.

Well, no matter how badly you need a Kicker, you don't go after him at #5 right?

Your team needs should be prioritized. If you are a medicore pass defense, and a terible run defense, then run defense is of bigger need. (We were 22nd against the pass, and 31st against the run)

But I wasn't attacking the Berry selection. I think it was out of touch, but not way out of touch.
