Any players you want? I would like to have a QB like Sam Bradford or Chase Daniel. Obviously getting Michael Oher wouldnt be bad at all although that would mean we were terrible

Matthew Stafford or Malcolm Jenkins.

To get either we'll probably have to be pretty bad and obviously only take Stafford if Croyle can't get it done this year. We should know for sure this year.

A guy like Oher would not be bad at all, but I have faith in Albert being able to play LT right away and being a good one.

Next year is all about Croyle. If he can be successful we will be great. If he sucks we suck and will be drafting a QB!

I'm sorry, Laurinaitis is my guy right now. He's a beast and a stud. He's a new word meaning all of those things at the same time, steast. Or bud. No, I like steast in this situation. Laurinaitis is a steast.

Ha! That would be sweet!

Also, I don't know if you're friend should be saying that the line still flat out sucks, but I don't think he is being unreasonable if he says that the line hasn't proven anything. Brian Waters and Damion McIntosh are the only proven commodities we have there. Everyone else is extremely young and unproven. There is still a chance that the line could be bad.

You know, I think our line will surprise people, but not only the line, the system and the personnel.

We're rumored to be moving to ZBS and Chan loves two TE sets. We drafted a very good blocking TE, which leads me to believe we'll be a little better up front than we were last year.

I think Niswanger and Richardson will start this year along with Albert, making three new starters for our line.

Each new year is exciting, but I think our line will be good again, or at least on the way to being good. Improved, whatever you want to call it. :)

I too belive that we will be better. Will we be on of the best, of course not but we should be able to run the ball better next year which will obviously help the entire offense. I don't think Richardson will start and it's not impossible that he never plays for us, but he defiently has some great tools and if the coach's can get him to show some fire he could turn out to be a huge steal. I loved the pick for the 6th round but my hopes for him are tempered. I think Taylor will get a chance in the preseason for the starting gig at RG but there will be a log of guys in the mix.

Yea, Richardson has a bunch of mixed scouting reports. Check the one out on nfl.com, he calls Scott out with his "Looks like Tarzan plays like jane" comment....I think he has potential but it's a good idea to keep your thoughts tempered about him...

It's a deep tackle class but right now Oher scares me as a first round pick. He's about emotionally stable as a middle school kid and the transition to pro football scares me. It will be interesting to see how he performs this year but as of right now he's probably number 5 on my list of tackles for next year. That said if we don't go QB than OT or DE will be tops on my list of needs for us next season.

from everything I've heard Oher is a franchise caliber LT

If you get a chance pick up the book "blind side". It's out in paperback and is a wonderful book. It talks about Oher extensivley. It makes you want to root for the guy, but there is no guarentee that he will translate to the NFL. Right now if college they teach him the line calls with salt and pepper shakers which I can't see possible with an NFL playbook.

I'll be honest, I dont think we'll be picking top five again....plus, I doubt Herm and co give up on albert so fast at LT. What's your list of DE'S? I think MLB would be a nice pick up too..maybe not r1 though.

I still like Laurinaitis, Maualuga is cool as hell too. DE will probably be a need, I'm not sure what the deal is with DEs this year, any names we should watch this fall?

Michael Johnson at Georia Tech
Tyson Jackson at LSU (He's a monster)
Everyone on the board loves George Sieve but I stil have questions.

It appears it's going to be a decent class from the early view.

Tyson Jackson it is. Might as well keep taking Bayou Boys first round long as they are gonna keep producing them.

Bumpage!

Was thinking about our trouble spots and I think the biggest problem we have right now is at linebacker. Yeah, the offensive line could use some work, and we could definitely use a pass rushing specialist DE (depending on how our dline performs this year) but after Derrick Johnson, who is a STEAST! who do we have? We do have Donnie Edwards, but he is getting up there in age, and I'm not even sure who can be penciled into the other slot.

If we have a high pick, and we don't take a QB, I would absolutely love Laurinaitis or Maualuga for our LB corps. It would address a big need area, and they would play right away.

I think we might be set on CBs. Apparently Carr is a stud and Flowers is picking up the defense well, but I guess we need to see how they do in an actual game.

I think next yearís draft for the Chiefs is going to depend greatly on how the Chiefs view Brodie:

If come next April they feel Brodie isnít the guy, I can see the Chiefs doing something like this in the first 2 rounds:

1. Matt Stafford QB from Geogia (assuming he declares early)
2. Hermann Johnson HUGE OG from LSU

If come next April Brodie stays healthy and proves he can be the guy, I can see the Chiefs doing something like this in the first 2 rounds:

1. Rey Mauluga ILB from USC
2. Hermann Johnson HUGE OG from LSU

I think the Chiefs are going to get another offensive lineman in the first couple rounds. That right side of our line is scary. And not in a good way. I mean in a ďmight get our QBs killedĒ way. Johnson could lock down a guard spot.

Itís kind of hard to picture what the future is about the QB spot because so much is unknown about Brodie. Itís even more unknown if Matt Stafford will even declare early since heís a junior.

Defensive end could be a target depending on what Tamba and Turk do throughout the season. Turk has looked a little better than I thought he would. But thatís not saying much since I had such low expectations of him to begin with. But he did get a hit on Brady Sunday and did get a few sacks in the pre-season.

Should be good at defensive tackle.

Linebacker has to be a priority because I donít see Pat Thomas as a long term solution at MLB. Nor do I see Napoleon Harris ever getting out of the doghouse. And this might be Donnieís last year in the league.

Should be set at safety.

Might need one more corner. Flowers looks like he might have the potential to be a pretty productive corner. CarrÖmaybe. Surtain probably wonít be on the team after this year. So another corner might be a target.

Still might need another WR. Iím a Mizzou guy. Thus Iím a big Will Franklin fan. But right now I see him as a 3rd WR. Havenít really been all that impressed with Webb since we drafted him. Take away the big play that Darling made this past Sunday and youíre left with nothing from him to this point. So, WR may be a priority.

I wish we would have kept Michael Allan. Iím not all that certain that Cottam will be a long term solution at TE after Gonzo retires. Cottam, physically, looks impressive. But his history of injuries is very alarming. Heís already been hurt since we drafted him. Not real sure about Merritt either. He probably wonít play this year. He wasnít known as a pass catching TE. Said to be a devastating blocker. Weíll see I guess.

Should be good at RB. Weíre like 5 deep right now if you could Savage.

Right now I see (in no particular order right now), MLB, OLB, RG, RT, WR, and CB as targets next year. And depending on what Brodie does, maybe even QB.

My only issue with Mlaulgulaualgualuuaaa is that he is very suspect incoverage. He is a beast, and an animal but he seems more or a 3-4 ILB than 4-3 cover 2 MLB.

I do like Herman Johnson alot! I would love him at guard.

09-10-2008, 02:16 PM
man if we coud land Mualuaga(sp?) that would be another great piece to the D.as BOE said the man is a beast and you can never have to many impact players on your team

It's been one game into the season and already the hope I had for Croyle is diminishing. I was one of his biggest supporters. I harped all day about LJ being out and not many good receivers to throw to and how poorly our o-line was playing, but even when we seem to be heading in the right direction the kid CANNOT STAY HEALTHY!

How many injuries has he sustained while a Chief? And in college? QB is absolutely our #1 priority entering the 2009 NFL draft. We need a top-flight signal caller (Sam Bradford or Matthew Stafford) who will be on the field and make correct decisions.

After that, McIntosh should be replaced soon (Barry Richardson please) and I would not mind another G for that Adrian Jones spot, but we really do need a MLB. Donnie might have a year or two left and DJ is a stud, but we have no top MLB. Pat Thomas is not the answer there.

His arm is unreal, but he makes a bunch of questionable throws. That said he seems to me to be far and away the only QB prospect I would take a chance with a top 3 pick on.

Well:

I think he O line needs help, but we could pick up a guard in the 2nd and hope that Barry Richardson takes over at RT. Herman Johnson, Anthony Parker, Jeff Byers, Jeremy Byers.

LB is an issue: Some like Rey Maluluga, but I am not buying him as an MLB in the Cover 2. James Laurinaitis if he fell to the 2nd would be nice. Brandon Spikes is a very solid prospect.

QB: hmmm. Croyle is not the answer..is he? Obviously not. We could draft someone like Bradford or Stafford in the 1st or look at someone like Curtis Painter, Chase Holbrook, Cullen Harper later.

The way I see it though get the QB 1st.

vidae
09-22-2008, 12:09 PM
QB first (Stafford/Bradford/whoever is the top of the class on draft day)

OG/MLB, depending on who is there. If Laurinitis is there, like you said, we've got to pull the trigger.

Put Richardson at RT, trade/release McIntosh. He's "old" for this team anyway, and he gets beat way too often. You see the first play we had on offense? Guy blew right by him. He doesn't deserve to start.

And maybe, a pass rushing DE. We're not getting it done.

Our biggest need is QB. While we definitely need a pass rushing DE, who will we have behind center? Croyle? He'll get injured. Damon? Bleh. Thigpen? No thanks.
