    Default My 7 round Chiefs Mock


    0 Not allowed!
    This is the first semi-mock draft Iíve done. Iím going to go seven rounds. Iíll present different options the Chiefs will have at different points throughout the draft.

    This draft all starts with available talent. While we obviously want offensive linemen, the Chiefs need to resist the urge to reach just to fill a need.

    In the first round, I see the Chiefs keeping their #5 pick and taking Sedrick Ellis. I think Dorsey will be gone and J. Long will probably be gone as well. In this scenario, the Chiefs make no trades during the entire draft. This draft will be called DRAFT A.

    There is an option of trading out of the #5 pick. If we do so, I think weíre looking at trading down to the teems somewhere in the teens while picking up an additional 2nd and 3rd rounder. This scenario, where the Chiefs make some draft day trades will be called DRAFT B.


    All player notes provided by NFLDraftCountdown.com


    DRAFT A
    No trades:
    1. 5-DT Sedrick Ellis
    Strengths:
    Very quick with a great first step...Very strong and powerful...A terrific pass rusher with the burst to close...Athletic with good speed...Instinctive...Sheds blocks well and is able to beat the double team...Is technically sound when it comes to using his hands and understanding leverage...Has a non-stop motor...Tough and a very hard worker with top-notch intangibles...Has experience at both tackle positions.

    Weaknesses:
    Doesn't have the ideal height or bulk that you look for...Has some minor durability issues...Might have some trouble holding his ground at the point against massive blockers...Limited schematically and probably won't be a perfect fit for every team.

    Notes:
    Could be a prototypical three-technique at the pro level...Redshirted in 2003 after breaking his left ankle and missed some time in '06 with a knee injury..Productive, disruptive force in the middle..A better prospect than Mike Patterson was in 2005.
    2. 35-OT Gosder Cherilus
    Strengths:
    Has excellent size and a huge frame with long arms...Strong and powerful..Gets a great push as a run blocker...Decent athlete...Has nimble feet..Mobile and can get to the second level...Very smart with great awareness...Nice balance...He is stout at the point of attack...Once he locks on the battle's over...A hard worker with top intangibles...Has a ton of experience against top-notch competition...Offers some versatility..Hails from a program that's known for producing NFL offensive linemen.

    Weaknesses:
    Has some trouble with speedy edge rushers...May lack a killer instinct..Has lapses with his leverage and will play too high at times...Most likely won't be a left tackle in the pros...Didn't have a great senior year..Had some minor off-the-field trouble.

    Notes:
    Name is pronounced "GOZ-der SHARE-uh-luss"...Born in Haiti...A four-year starter in the ACC...Started 37 consecutive games at right tackle but he moved to the left side as a senior and had some struggles...Was arrested and charged with assault and battery in July of 2007 in connection with a bar fight, although Cherilus claims he was acting as a peacemaker...Not flashy but has the physical tools and should start almost immediately..Prototypical right tackle who should enjoy a long career.
    3. 66-CB Justin King
    Strengths:
    Smooth athlete...Good size and bulk...Outstanding speed with a burst...Fluid and flips his hips well...Quick and agile with excellent feet...Excellent hands...A reliable tackler...Has a lot of experience against elite competition...Very smart and a hard worker....Versatile and can also contribute as a return man...Has a ton of upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Not very strong or physical...Struggles with big wideouts...Raw and needs a lot of work when it comes to technique..Has a long memory...Sub par ball skills and isn't much of a playmaker...Questionable awareness and instincts...Underachiever who does not play to his measurables...Might lack a fire in his belly...Workout Warrior?

    Notes:
    Stepfather, Terry Smith, was a wide receiver at Penn State from 1988-91...One of the nation's premier recruits coming out of high school...Three-year starter in the Big Ten...Was able to graduate from college in just 35 months..Also saw extensive action at wide receiver early in his career...A finesse corner with all of the physical tools you look for but something seems to be missing...An enigma who could be a stud if the light ever comes on but he will need a lot of coaching..."Boom or Bust".
    4. 105-OT Barry Richardson
    Strengths:
    Outstanding size with a huge frame and long arms...Terrific athleticism...Very light on his feet...Great lateral mobility and range...Gets to the second level...Excellent pass blocker...Good body control...Once he locks on the battle's over...Has a lot of experience against big-time competition...Offers some versatility...Still has upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Plays soft...Lacks a killer instinct and is not aggressive...Has to get stronger...Gets pushed around and doesn't play to his size...Poor technique and he does not play with good leverage...Gets caught reaching too often...Effort is pretty inconsistent.

    Notes:
    Graduated from high school in just three years..A four-year starter at left tackle in the ACC...Held future #1 overall pick Mario Williams without a sack in '05...Classic case of a prospect who "Looks like Tarzan, Plays Like Jane"...Has all the physical tools you look for but is an underachiever...Could be a steal if some coach can get him to be more nasty but it's difficult to change a guys demeanor and personality.
    5. 136-WR Adrian Arrington
    Strengths:
    Smooth athlete...Nice size and bulk with long arms..Good hands and will make the spectacular catch...Great leaping ability and ball skills...Can do some damage after the catch..Tough...Will work the middle of the field...Still improving and has upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Does not have great timed speed or quickness...Is not very explosive and lacks a burst...Needs to get stronger...Is not a great route runner...Lack of concentration leads to some drops...Questionable motor...Marginal blocker...Doesn't have a ton of experience...Was never the featured target in college...Has character concerns.

    Notes:
    Would have had the opportunity to emerge from Mario Manningham's shadow as a senior in 2008 but chose to go pro early rather than try to adapt to the spread offense being installed by Rich Rodriguez...Was only a starter for about a season and a half...Has been suspended on more than one occasion and in 2006 he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence following an argument with his girlfriend..Would have been much better off going back to Ann Arbor...Has some tools but his lack of speed and off-the-field issues will hurt him on Draft Day.
    6. 140-OG/OT Jerremy Zuttah
    Strengths:
    Good athleticism...Terrific speed and quickness...Extremely strong...Explosive and powerful...Mobile with nice range...Uses his hands well...Versatile with experience at multiple positions..Smart with good awareness and instincts...Great work ethic.

    Weaknesses:
    Size and bulk are somewhat average...Doesn't have great footwork...Has trouble with speed...May be a 'tweener without a true pro position...Does not necessarily play to his workout numbers...Does not dominate opponents...Durability concerns.

    Notes:
    Was a four-year starter for the Scarlet Knights...Has played both guard and tackle in college and could also project to center at the next level..Has missed some time with knee and ankle injuries...Opened some eyes with a standout performance at the Scouting Combine when he placed among the Top 10 offensive linemen in four events including the forty and bench press..Has starting potential but versatility is the hallmark of his game and that may allow him to at least be a valuable backup.
    7. 172-CB Jack Williams
    Strengths:
    A great athlete...Excellent speed and quickness...Outstanding leaper..Good hands and ball skills...Solid instincts and awareness..Reads and reacts well and he has a burst to close...Is very strong...Tough and physical...Gets a good jam at the line of scrimmage...Willing to come up and support the run..A hard worker...Team leader.

    Weaknesses:
    Doesn't have the ideal size and bulk that you would prefer..Not real fluid when he flips his hips to turn and run...Had a sub par senior campaign...Durability might be a concern...Takes too many chances...Questionable return ability...Limited upside.

    Notes:
    Battled ankle injuries as a senior and it affected to his play but to his credit he did not miss much action...Can't match his former teammate Usama Young in terms of triangle numbers but might be a better football player...Underrated prospect who is a lot better than his senior film would indicate...Prototypical nickel or dime back.
    8. 187-QB Brad Roach

    9. 210-WR Maurice Purify
    Strengths:
    Excellent size and great bulk with a solid frame...Has long arms and big hands...Is strong and physical...Very aggressive with great ball skills and body control...Can make the spectacular catch...Decent athleticism...Knows how to use his size to his advantage...A fantastic leaper...Can be a terror in the redzone...Pretty productive.

    Weaknesses:
    Not very explosive and lacks a burst...Will struggle to separate..Is not real elusive and won't do much after the catch...Does not have reliable hands...Is not a great route runner...Not nearly as good of a blocker as he should be...Only two years of DI experience...He won't stretch the field vertically...Has some character concerns.

    Notes:
    Highly-touted JUCO transfer from San Francisco City College..His nephew is former Colorado tailback Bobby Purify...Was arrested in '06 on two counts of assault and one count of resisting arrest and then just five weeks later he was arrested again for suspicion of drunken driving...Ironically he was a criminal justice major...He has some physical tools to work with but will need to keep his nose clean off the field.
    10. 239-OG Donald Thomas
    Strengths:
    Adequate size and bulk...Above average athleticism...Great feet...Good speed and quickness...Mobile with good range...Can pull and get to the second level...Strong and powerful...Has a excellent initial punch....Still improving and has some upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Very inconsistent...Isn't a great technician at this point...Has a thin lower body...Is not real stout at the point of attack...Poor balance...Questionable awareness...He may have some off-the-field concerns..Only a one-year starter...Workout Warrior?

    Notes:
    Was enrolled at UConn in 2003 but did not play football and then he redshirted in 2004...Just 14 career starts...Made his greatest impact on special teams early in his college career...In 2006 he was arrested for assault...A very talented prospect who has some intriguing physical tools but is somewhat of a developmental type.

    DRAFT B
    ē The Chiefs trade pick #5, #105 and #189 to the Chicago Bears who need a franchise RB for picks numbers #14, #44, #75 and #177. The trading of picks brings the point total to withing 4 pts with the advantage going to the Bears.

    1. 14-OG/OT Branden Albert
    Strengths:
    Excellent size with a big frame and long arms...Fantastic athlete...Good quickness and agility...Strong and physical...Is nasty with a killer instinct...Mobile with decent range to pull and get to the second level...Smart with good awareness...Excellent pass blocker and also gets a decent push in the run game...Real versatile..Leader with great intangibles...Tough and durable..Still improving and has a lot of upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Still has some work to do in the technique department...Can be inconsistent with his leverage...Motor runs hot and cold at times..Not a dominant run blocker...Has to work on holding his blocks and finishing....He is still relatively new to the game.

    Notes:
    Did not begin playing football until his junior year of high school in 2002..Was also a standout basketball player as a prep...Stepped in as a true freshman and was a three-year starter for the Cavs ( 36 games )...Named a team captain as a junior in 2007...He started a couple of games at left tackle as a junior in place of an injured Eugene Monroe and could possibly play outside at the pro level as well...First-rate talent with exceptional physical tools....Already a great all-around player however his best days are still ahead...The rare offensive guard who is a legit first rounder.
    2. 35-OT Gosder Cherilus (see above)
    3. 44-WR Malcom Kelley (Oklahoma)
    4. 66-CB Charles Godfrey

    Strengths:
    Has excellent size with a solid frame and long arms...Outstanding timed speed...A fantastic athlete...Real quick with a burst to close...Very good ball skills...Is strong and tough...Physical and aggressive...A reliable tackler...Will deliver the big hit...Is versatile with experience at two positions...Still improving and has a huge upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Extremely raw and still learning the position...Has to work on his technique when it comes to footwork and positioning...Marginal instincts and awareness...Doesn't play as fast as he times...Inconsistent and gives up too many big plays...He relies too heavily on his natural talent...Risky and might be a bit of a "Workout Warrior".

    Notes:
    Older brother El Roberson played quarterback at Kansas State...He played safety early in his college career and only moved to corner in '06...Finally started to fulfill his potential as a senior...Will test through the roof and it'll be easy to fall in love with his measurables but he is still somewhat of a developmental guy...He'll likely be chosen relatively early based more on potential than actual college production.
    5. 75-WR Jordy Nelson
    Strengths:
    Has excellent size and bulk with a solid frame...Very productive...Has soft, reliable hands...Shows terrific body control and ball skills...He's more quick than fast...Can run after the catch a bit...Smart, hard working and tough...Still has a little upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Does not have great timed speed and lacks a burst...Is not much of a deep threat and won't stretch the field vertically...Is just a slightly above average blocker...Still relatively new to the position & must work on mastering its techniques / nuances.

    Notes:
    Began his college career as a defensive back and only moved to wide receiver in '05...In high school he won state titles in the 100, 200, 400 and long jump...Had a huge senior campaign and really gave his draft stock a boost...Profiles as more of a possession guy in the NFL but could surprise if he can run better than expected.
    6. 110-CB Chevis Jackson
    Strengths:
    Nice size with long arms...A smooth athlete....Strong...Instinctive...Tough, physical and aggressive...Good hands and ball skills...Has fluid hips to transition...Reliable tackler...Solid against the run...Has lots of experience...Mature and a hard worker.

    Weaknesses:
    Timed speed is merely average...Doesn't change direction well...Needs to improve his footwork...Can be too aggressive at times...He'll have a difficult time manning up speed receivers...Might be more of a system guy...Upside is most likely limited.

    Notes:
    Was a three-year starter in the SEC..Is cut from the same mold as guys like Travis Daniels, Corey Webster and Mark Roman...Will play in the league and should be a solid pro but probably not much more..Looks to be best suited for a zone scheme.
    7. 136-OG/OT Jeremy Zuttah (see above)
    8. 140-DT Frank Okam

    Strengths:
    Has outstanding size and a huge frame...Very strong and powerful...A pretty good athlete for a guy with his dimensions..Has shown the ability to take on blocks and split the double team...Good run defender...A decent bull rusher...Good range and mobility...Really smart...Schematically versatile...Solid production...Still has upside.

    Weaknesses:
    Needs to play with better leverage...Doesn't have a great motor...Isn't much of a pass rusher...Lacks quickness and a burst...Is not stout at the point...Stamina has been an issue...Instincts are questionable...Plays undisciplined...Is on the ground too much...Extremely inconsistent and does not always play up to his talent level.

    Notes:
    A member of the UT Athletics Director's Honor Roll...Possible 3-4 nose tackle...Hails from the same college program that has produced guys like Casey Hampton, Cory Redding, Shaun Rogers and Marcus Tubbs in recent years...Has all of the physical tools you look for but he may lack the intangibles necessary to be great...A classic underachiever who could excel if motivated but is just as likely to be a major bust.
    9. 172-CB Jack Williams (see above)
    10. 177-WR Adrian Arrington (see above)
    11. 210-QB Brad Roach
    12. 239-CB Brian Witherspoon

    Strengths:
    A smooth natural athlete...Blazing fast with rare timed speed...Has an outstanding burst to break and recover when beat...Very fluid hips and flips them well....Great leaper...Terrific hands and can be a playmaker...Lots of potential as a return man.

    Weaknesses:
    Did not play against top competition...Isn't very strong or physical....Needs to bulk up and add weight...Sub par tackler...Struggles to get a jam at the line...Lacks top instincts and awareness..Is raw in terms of technique and will need a ton of work.

    Notes:
    Started out at Alabama St. in 2003 but did not play football there...Also a Division II Track All-American at Stillman and he even played some baseball for the Tigers as well....Might be more of a track guy playing football than the other way around but when you're as fast as he is it almost guarantees you a serious look from pro scouts...Probably viewed as more of a return specialist at this point...An intriguing developmental prospect who might be a perfect candidate for the practice squad.

    I thought Malcom Kelly was projected for the first round.

    Perhaps he could go in the first, but i could definitely see him slide to the 2nd round at #44. There aren't too many teams dying to take a WR early because it's such a deep class. I think Kelly will be the 4th or 5th WR taken. We could possibly even get a better WR prospect such as Sweed. But, i only think we grab a WR if we trade the #5 pick.

    I thought Kelly was rated higher than Sweed... at least on the stuff I read.
