I do not think we will trade up. I think Pioli is happy with the O-line with the addition of Winston, I think Pioli did a good job in the FA but his job is still on the line.
Heres who I see Pioli getting at 11:
Tannehill (I'm not sold on the guy I think he has a lot of potential he has great arm, he's fast and athletic, but he would probably need a few years to develop) but it gives Cassel serious competition.
Luke Kuechly this guy is a stud, he is versatile would add 100 tackles and he's great in coverage.
Who I want: Decastro
I genuinely hope he adds depth to that O-line by drafting David DeCastro. Possibly another team need on the offensive side of the ball would be TE? What do you think?
I was looking into last year's posts, and mostly we didn't thought about Baldwin, why? Because Mr. Pioli is very mysterious about his first pick.
Probably I will be shocked (too much) about Chief's first pick.

As much as I would love the DeCastro pick, I sincerely believe Pioli is going to go defensive line with the first pick. It makes sense given the contract situations of both Dorsey and Jackson in the near future. I would think somebody like Fletcher Cox, Michael Brockers, or maybe a tradedown for Devon Still. I just think he is content with Lilja at guard so he will wait until round 2 or 3 to pick up somebody like Zeitler, Osemele, Silatolu, or Brooks.
The other thing I could see happening is us trading Dorsey in the draft to another team. He's on his last contract year and we'd probably franchise Albert if we can't get Albert signed this year. Not only that but I haven't heard one word about Dorsey wanting to stay, the Chiefs trying to resign him or that he'd be franchised. This all leads me to think we might be trading Dorsey in the draft.
In the end I'm on the DeCastro bandwagon too, unfortunately I see this one being a long shot at this point. I don't think it's Kuechly either.
David DeCastro would be the logical choice at 11
i wouldnt be upset if we traded up to ge qb tannehill. however u spell his name.
But, until proven otherwise on Draft day, I have my doubts that logic will prevail, outside of Crennel convincing Pioli that drafting DeCastro is the right thing to do ( and Crennel was the HC in Cleveland when they drafted both OT Joe Thomas and C Alex Mack in the 1st round, so there is a glimmer of hope ).
We'll see how it turns out.
