I think that if adam carriker falls down as far as people expect him to which is around the late teens area, i think we gotta trade up for him, jared allen and a draft pick would probably do it. Carriker is an absolute monster that could really help out the defense. Maybe its just that im a Nebraska fan and i have seen him in alot of games, or maybe its that i remember another DE out of Nebraska that we took in the 1st round named Neil Smith! I understand we drafted DE Tamba Hali last year in the first round, but the last time we drafted DEs in the first round back to back years it was Neil Smith and Derrick Thomas! if they could be half of what those 2 were then we would be in good shape.

It would be nice to be able to trade up, and get a decent first round pick, and it is possible, Carriker would be an all right pick. if we were to trade up and get him, As Coach said, Herm is picking and he definitely is defense minded.
Go Chiefs Eleven, win
Come on. Seriously?????
Do we really want to throw two,or more, draft picks at a position that we already have a stud at? Forget that we can't protect a quarterback? Forget that the middle of our defensive line backs up on running plays? And just make a non-impact draft of it? We would be extremely lucky, to have some rookie wind-up being as good as Allen is. And we already have Jared Allen. What would we gain from this? We would (hopefully) secure an already secure position. And we would use two draft picks ( at least) to do so.
I hate to sound like I am attacking you here. I just have a great respect for the way Jared Allen plays the game. Not to mention, he is quite young yet.
if you look around the forum you would see that i am very high on picking up chris houston, dwayne bowe, or joe staley but there are people on here coming up with there own dreams on draft day i just wanted to put it out there and see what would be said about it, and not to mention the problem jared allen isnt how good of a player he is, its that he wants out of KC!
I don't see how Jared can be in a Chiefs uniform on opening day. He has a one year contract or he gets to sit. So he'll take the contract. He would have to have a MONSTER year to get big time $ next year. Guess who else is sitting there, unhappy. Mr. LJ. Franchise is reserved for him in 08. That means Allen is UFA and I doubt the Chiefs pay him the $ to keep him. That said, he is gone for 4 games next year anyway. Maybe it's time to deal him. If he stays, one of two things happen:
1) LJ signs contract extension in the middle of the year and Allen is franchised
2) LJ is franchised and someone else overpays Allen's DUI legacy.
(or the new commish puts the kabash on off-duty activities and Allen's career is cut short)
