Round 1 - Pick 1 – Dion Jordan, LB, Oregon

The Chiefs have to be thinking trade here with the current players on roster. OT is the pick for everyone else but I don’t want to see Albert go and I don’t want to draft a second OT with the number one pick. Give me the elite defensive playmaker that can be moved around to exploit matchups any day.

For some people, change is difficult and often hard to understand. A different perspective takes most out of their comfort zone and makes learning the new ways a necessity.After the past few years of the Scott Pioli era in Kansas City, Chiefs fans are welcoming change with open arms. Some Chiefs fans are still unsure what to expect heading into tonight’s draft. We have you covered with a detailed look at which positions and conferences these men tend to select and in which round. Some of the numbers give great insight into their strategy.

I would like to introduce you to the men who were hired to turn the Chiefs franchise into one of the league’s best, Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey and Head Coach Andy Reid. Two highly decorated NFL decision makers, who are now calling the shots in the Kansas City Chiefs War Room.

A common practice when evaluating a prospect is to compare the individual with an already established player in a superior league . It helps the evaluator determine what possible strengths will translate and what weaknesses could hamper the viability of the prospect when facing tougher opponents.

1. Kansas City Chiefs: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

The Chiefs were awful this season. The biggest need (by far) is quarterback. With Pioli gone, the new GM will almost certainly use this pick to draft his own guy.

Smith was awesome this season. He completed 71 percent of his passes for 4,004 yards, 40 touchdowns, and only six interceptions. He started the year with monstrous performances but was cooled down against Texas Tech and Kansas State.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pounder has prototypical NFL size for quarterbacks. His skillset is what you look for in a franchise QB. He makes good reads and shows great vision. He has great accuracy, but his arm isn’t “elite” but is very good (but neither was Aaron Rodgers). Smith can also make plays with his feet. The biggest thing he needs to work on is his footwork, but that can be coached.

The Chiefs finally get their man.

Kansas City Chiefs: Eye On The Future

Since the last EOTF post, the Chiefs depth has really been tested. Interior line is now paper thin. The defensive secondary has to deal with Brandon Flowers re-injuring his heel. The same heel that kept him out well over a month to begin the season. Kevin Boss is out for the year with a concussion. As much as we all praised Chiefs GM Scott Pioli for his building of the roster during the off-season (It was well deserved praise too) he can’t prevent injuries.

Besides not signing or drafting a QB, Pioli built what many called the “NFL’s deepest roster”. It’s being tested now and possibly long-term. That’s where this post will come in handy. For you,me and even Pioli. We’re going to take a look at 9 games and prospects within those games that may fit into the Chiefs plans in the future.

I’ll be in Columbia, Missouri for the Vanderbilt at Mizzou game on Saturday, scouting from the press box. Now that I am fully equipped with a new laptop, I’ll be commenting throughout the day on different games and prospects in our Saturday Prospect Open Thread. Check it out and comment yourself. We’d love your input on these or any other prospects from around the country. Head inside for this week’s slate of games.
