Kansas City Chiefs: Five First-Round Options in the 2010 NFL Draft, Version 1.0
The 2010 season is still not over, but some Kansas City Chiefs fans are already looking for the 2010 NFL Draft. (I am not one of those—I'm still hoping the Chiefs will win more games!)
There are a bunch of problems the Chiefs need to fix on both sides of the football, so I made a list for Chiefs fans who are looking forward to April.
There is hope for Kansas City—I predict 2010 to be the year that the Chiefs bounce back, if they have a good draft.
Here is my list. Enjoy!
#5 Rolando McClain, Inside Linebacker from Alabama
The Chiefs have one of the worst defenses in the NFL and one of there biggest needs is the inside linebacker position.
Rolando McClain would be a perfect fit to play inside linebacker—He is the best linebacker in the draft. He stands 6'4", he is fast, and he is a ball magnet.
#4 Golden Tate, Wide Receiver from Notre Dame
Golden Tate would be a great addition, whether he goes in the first round or second round.
The Chiefs lead the league in dropped passes, and Dwayne Bowe needs someone opposite of him to catch the ball as well.
This will be a tempting pick for Todd Haley—you know how he loves those wide receivers. And on top of that, the Chiefs have already taken a look at him.
#3 Taylor Mays, Safety from Southern California
Chiefs fans would love this guy.
I do not think Taylor Mays will get drafted that high, but he is still arguably the second best defensive back on the board. He is like having another linebacker on the field. He would fit because the Chiefs have a terrible secondary that cannot tackle, especially the free safety position.
#2 Toby Gerhart, Running Back from Stanford
Imagine this: The Chiefs could have one of the best running back tandems in the NFL if they drafted this guy, whether he goes in the first round or second.
A speed demon in Jamaal Charles and a Power back in Toby Gerhart would have defenses gasping for air. The question is: Will Gerhart have a good combine?
#1 Eric Berry, Safety from Tennessee
I have thought over and over again if an offensive tackle should go No. 1 on this list, but not because they will solve that in free agency or they cannot wait any more for rookie players to improve.
Eric Berry would solve all the problems for the Chiefs. The free safety is a must for the Chiefs, and having Eric Berry on the depth chart would change it. Eric Berry is compared to Ed Reed of the Ravens, and that is just what the Chiefs need.
