I felt that the draft was well below average, IMO.
I am extremely happy about getting Dwayne Bowe from LSU. I wanted him all along. What dissapointed me was the next pick. Turk McBride. He is a tweener DE-DT, but if they wanted that they could have picked up Ray McDonald from Florida. I thought it would be a steal to get Josh Beekman in the third. Nope. The Chiefs took DeMarcus Tyler, wich is a good pick, but still. I thought the Chifs deffinetely going to trade up witht their two 5th rounders when Beekman was on the board late 4th. Instead we spent our two seconds on a running back and a kicker. We finally got Herbert Taylor for the O-Line, but it was far too late. We should have gotten O-Line much earlier. With their 7th pick, it seemed logical to take Travarous Bain or another corner. But a Tight End.
Overall, I think the draft was average, not too bad because they came away with Bowe and Tyler.
Well below is where I think we are. After last year, I remember thinking how great Herm looked on draft day and it seemed like everything fit and you could see it working. Today, nothing but questions.
I don't like Bowe in the first round. Herm keeps talking about how great Hannon and Webb will be. Does this now mean that one of the three receivers we have (besides Kennison) is on the way out (Parker / Webb / Hannon)?
Anyway - if no one is saying today what a great draft this was, then it sucks. Only if 4 or 5 of these guys play opening day do we have to eat our words....
