Kansas City Chiefs' Free Agency and Draft Wish List

In professional football, the draft and free agency are a lot like car shopping.

The NFL is the dealership, showcasing a lot littered with names and numbers. Agents are the (overly) optimistic "Got some miles on her but runs like a beaut'. The smoke? Adds character" salesmen. Injury history? Carfax sans annoying fox.

The free-agent market is basically a used-car lineup.

Every option has had a previous owner, but you can find out how it fared in years past. Some purchases turn out to be worthwhile investments (see Mike DeVito), others end up backfiring down the road (see Dunta Robinson, see car wreck). 

As for the draft? No previous owners. Fresh off the line. Center stage in the showroom. The downside is that, regardless of how any of the selections perform, you're handcuffed to paying for it over the next four years. 

In the Kansas City Chiefs' case, John Dorsey is the potential buyer, and if executive of the year means anything to you, a smart one at that. If Kansas City lands a few names off the following wish list, Dorsey's recent award will be getting a twin in 2014.
