I like it, but this pick will probably change 10 more times between now and April...

I think he is that good,and a very big need for the position to be filled, I've been watching this guy and is very exciting to watch except when he's against my team ,the MU Tigers, I'm with you, he won't be there for us.

And like its been said,still too early to get a serious mock draft.

When are these guys going to figure out that we need a QB/WR more than defense?

Not saying that you are wrong there, but the debatable part becomes do you take a QB or WR in the 1st round?

One can make strong case about a pass rusher being the biggest need as the secondary does need help, and without a pass rush, the investment they made in Eric Berry could go down the drain.

I don't see any reason to draft a backup QB in the first round. Give Cassel some more weapons. He's tied for 4th amongst all QBs in TDs/ATT and INTs/ATT, 28 years old, and always improving his game. The Chiefs would be foolish to get rid of him...No rookie, not even one playing as good as Bradford this year, is going to come in and play better than Matt Cassel would. Let alone we'd probably be drafting mid first round. QB makes no sense. Draft one in the later rounds.

Love to see them grab a WR or pass rusher in the first round.

Wr for sure. I think we need to get a WR and then see what Cassle can do.

But we also do need help to get more of a pass rush. It would help this team big time.
