Maybe. I'd say it was right on par with our last few drafts. In fact, outside of the Fisher pick, I'd say this one closely mirrored '09.
Like WOW. I want you all to see this guy, Eric Kush. Does that look like an O-Lineman or what. I have to pull for this guy to stick.
ON PAPER, it may mirror the '09 draft. I'll bet against it on the football field. But, we'll see.
Some questionable picks but overall I like more than I hate.
I think Fisher will be a consistent pro bowler for years to come. I also Like the Kelce pick but the Nico Johnson selection is the one that excites me, by all accounts he was a leader at Alabama and great against the rush, will be a productive starter inside.
The only pick I hate is the Knile davis choice and the rest are sort of meh.
A good but not great draft for us in my opinion.
Overall, I like this draft quite a bit better than any of Pioli's, for if Pioli had been handling it, it would have been a LOT worse -- the fact that Pioli projected Joeckel to KC at #1, made me lean a bit more towards Fisher. Who wants Pioli contaminating any more of the Chiefs drafts, in any way?
The Knile Davis pick is a "wait and see" type of pick, but the upside is HUGE if he can stay healthy & get his game back. He could be electrifying and it's been said he's a good pass blocker. And you don't coach 4.35 speed, that he's been said to run.
Fisher was an obvious choice, but picking Kelce that high was a head-scratcher, seeing as we already have two capable TEs on the roster. Then we waste another pick on an injury prone fumbler. Only good picks of the draft were Fisher, Nico, and Catapano. That's about it.
The only obvious starters the Chiefs picked up from this draft are Fisher and Johnson. With the #1 overall pick, that's terrible.
Overall not to excited by this draft, given the position we were in, and given some of the players that fell to lower rounds. Fisher's going to be great. After that, well...it's in Dorsey & Reid's hands now. Dorsey needs to get that "Chiefs Kingdom" pen working and get these guys all signed before training camp starts.
Fisher's going to be great. Look forward to the highlight films of him knocking back defenders for Jamaal Charles, who will be in the next county by the time the defender gets back on his feet.
