I like it. He has 4.47 speed and can catch the ball out the backfield. Here's some BIO:

He was projected as a 3rd or 4th rounder. There's been a lot of debate regarding the selection of Poe at #11, but since then, they have just ripped it a new one with getting not only need players, but good football players & things are looking good, not only now, but long-term.
Beautiful job by the Chiefs brass. I was apprehensive coming into the draft & after the selection of Poe at #11, but they've completely annihilated that apprehension in a resounding way since round 1.
Since Pioli has been here, there have been at least 2 picks per draft that have made me yell at the t.v. This year, while there's only been a couple that I'm ecstatic about, there haven't been any that have made me angry... so, they're definitely improving. :lol:
I think this draft/offseason would be a complete success if we get some more depth at ILB. Even if Poe is a complete bust (which I doubt), I think we did a great job of filling holes (including depth) and getting some talented players all over the team. If everyone stays healthy, we have a very young, talented team that will be in place for awhile.
What's also impressive is that they've been able to keep their cap flexibility. While I'm sure a couple spots will become apparent, it's exciting to see every hole sufficiently filled at this point.
It's a nice thing when you look at the team and see your only question marks being at FS, ILB, and QB... each of which are positions currently filled by players who can at the very least perform at league average... NICE!
There are some decent names at LB still out there:
Cam Johnson (OLB)
Audie Cole (ILB)
Emmanuel Acho (OLB)
Vontaze Burfict (ILB)
I think most of them were rated as 3-5th rounders at some point. They could at the least be quality special teamers/backups (which is what you should be looking for at this point) with the potential to develop into a steal.
LOL, just looked at the Donkeys draft list & the players they took.
Anybody who disses the Chiefs draft, just simply needs to look at Denver's draft if you are in need of a good laugh.
It's not even close -- the Chiefs clearly had the best draft of any team in the division ( although SD didn't do too badly).
A few players that I feel we should seriously look at in the 7th rd, that are still available:
Billy Winn, DE/DT, Boise State
Audie Cole, ILB, North Carolina State
Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M
Dang, Winn just got selected!
I'd pick Case Keenum up in the 7th I like the and think he could do well in our offense.
Acho and Audie Cole are both gone now.
Jerome Long, DT, SDSU
