I picked Carimi, but basically I am just all about the OT position.

Not counting on it. But that would be my choice.

And I didn't want to delete a thread, nor a post, so I just merged your two threads here.:biggrin:

The more I look at it the more I think the Chiefs will go w/ the NT in Phil Taylor. Currently, Anthony Toribio is the only NT on the roster, and he was a practice squad guy for most of the year.

"Carimi will play in the NFL for some team and start at right tackle. He is by no means a left tackle and I will be shocked if he is drafted in the first round next year. Carimi has size and he is a powerful run blocker, but lacks the athleticism, technique and consistency for him to be even discussed as a first-round talent. I think he is a second- or third-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, and I currently have a third-round grade on Carimi."


That's from WalterFootball.com which suprizes me a bit. I'm all for getting him and if we can get him in the 2nd or 3rd then heck yeah! While I believe we need to get an O-line guy in the first couple rounds if we can get a starting RT in the 2nd round and get Phil Taylor in the 1st then I'll be as happy as a clam!

I am a little surprised to see so many people vote Carimi over Sherrod, but they definitely have different skill sets. I would be happy with Taylor, Ayers, or any of the OTs. I like Ayers over Houston because from what I have read, it seems like Ayers has a little more experience playing the OLB position and dropping into coverage. Either one, though, will probably be a beast under Romeo Crennel.

There are a lot of pretty good people that will be available. Almost so many that we could probably trade down 5-10 picks and still have a few of these names on the board. The only problem is that there probably wont be any superstars another team wants badly enough to trade up for, unless someone drops on draft day.

With All of this OT talk....

Why is no one talking about Nate Solder (I mean He might not be available for us at 21 maybe that's why there's not a lot of talk about him)

But honestly out of all the prospects I think Nate Solder, or Akeem Ayers fit what Pioli likes to draft.

Both have at least 3 years playing experience (Solder has 4 years playing exp 3 years starting, Ayers has 3 years playing 2.5 years starting) Both are hard workers, Smart guys (Both on honor roll),and pure athletes that love the game. Both have leadership qualities (Captains of respective teams). And both have very high character (No red flags whatsoever.)

I know People are high on Phil Taylor but he just doesn't seem like a guy Pioli would buy into. There's been talks of him being lazy, not a hard worker, some red flag character issues (I know it has to do with a fight from back when he was at Penn State, but it's still a "red flag" also heard he had academic issues.) and Justin Houston is similar with character issues.

I just look at how Pioli describes his draft picks and he puts a lot of emphasis on Character and work ethic, and think he will go this route for at least another year before he takes a chance on a guy that has character issues.

Now I really think we are going to attempt to trade back and pick up some more picks in the 2nd or 3rd, but If we do pick someone I think one of these two are the most likely.
