    Have to say I love the Chiefs draft. Really went all out to upgrade their weakest position and improve their already strong one's in TE and RB

    Although I love our draft, KC`s draft is the only other one I drool about, given our situation. (Washington loading up on offensive weapons was sexy too) I`d keep ours, but I guess only time will tell how the situation develops, have to trust the Trifecta with the big picture...

    We had completely different needs. Although KC did have THE best draft with us a close second I believe, its goes back to the old addage of comparing apples to oranges. They did have a great draft but its hard to say if I would swap because of the differences between the two teams and they're needs.

    I'd take the chief's draft over ours, but I'm very happy with ours as well.

    The Chiefs had a remarkable draft, I would swap their pick #'s for ours in a heart beat with a few different player selections.

    Give us a mid first to select another stud and I'll take ours big time. We could have taken a CB or even Albert let alone a RT and move VC to LG.

    The Chiefs had an outstanding draft, but I wouldn't swap with them. Our needs are different. Our draft wasn't as sexy, but it was best for our team.

    Overall the chiefs had a better draft although I rank our first three picks with any team.

    It`s not over...if we pick up a couple extra players, maybe CB and WR, from the June cuts, training camp should be a blast, and 6-8 wins might be a reality (injury free for the most part, of course)

    The Dolphins draft, because Herm Edwards is the coach of the Chiefs. They can get all of the good players they want, Herm will find a way to ruin them

    They also lost the best pass rusher in the NFL, and we also gained Akin Ayodele and Anthony Fasano.

    For our team as a whole, I think we had the best draft/off season of any team in the NFL

    Actually it is apples to apples if you look at the positions they drafted, most all of those are fairly major to major positions of need of our own. I think they had one of the best drafts I have seen in a long time and beat ours because a lot of those players I wanted us to get they got whereas very few of the players we got I wanted us to get. I think their draft is a lot more high risk than ours if you look at some of the names, but I think they will ultimately get a higher reward. However with all that said, and I saw it mentioned on here in an earlier post, they have Herm as their coach so they won't be able to take advantage of the talent they drafted IMO.

    If you're taking a draft to fit the scheme we want to run, and the type of team we want to be, you take our draft. The reason being we got players to fit our scheme, and a QB our current staff likes.

    The big difference is that the Chiefs picked up the extra 1st and 3rd for Allen, allowing them to get Albert. If they don't make the trade, their draft is pretty solid still, but not a world-beater. I'm not a fan of Charles', especially for our offense, Cottam is always hurt, and they didn't address the G position enough for our team.

    Like what they did for their team and style (where Dorsey is going to be a stud), and think they'll be greatly improved because of it, but for our team and our coaches our draft went very well...

    This thread would've made a good poll question.

    why is dorsey a DE?
    carr so far looks as good as flowers, and if you guys hadn't let us borrow surtain, we might be starting with the scary 2 rooks at CB and 2 3rd year players at safety.

    as far as people claiming i've been comparing Johnston to Jared Allen, Gunther Cunningham is more stoked about him than any Chiefs fan, so if we are drinking the kool-aid, he's the one serving.

    hopefully Albert works out as LT for us. he should, starting next to brian waters and all. we finally have a center that's not 280, so we'll have a road-grading O-line.
