Kansas City Chiefs: Five First Round Options in the 2010 NFL Draft, Version 2.0
This is the second version of my top five players the Kansas City Chiefs should look at or draft. Much has changed for the Kansas City Chiefs since I wrote my first article on top five options for the Chiefs.
The Chiefs have added tremendous coaching help in Romeo Crennel and Charlie Weis. Also a few needs for the Kansas City Chiefs have changed including the running back position with the emergence of Jamaal Charles.
In version 1.0 I put Toby Gerhart as a top target, but not anymore thanks to Larry Johnson's departure Charles became one of the leagues elite rushers racking up over 1100 rushing yards and averaging 5.9 yards a carry in only 10 starts. So here is my second version of the Chiefs options for the first round in April. Enjoy!
No. 5 Golden Tate, Wide Receiver from Notre Dame
This option for drafting Golden Tate is getting hotter and hotter. Like I said in version 1.0 the Chiefs have already taken a look at this guy, plus with the addition of Charlie Weis (former Notre Dame head coach) this is even more likely.
But, the question to think about is it worth to draft Golden Tate with the fifth overall pick? I do not think so with all the other talent available drafting that high. This is the guy that is most likely in my opinion to end up in Kansas City. If the Chiefs wanted this guy they will either have to trade down or hope he is available in the second round.
No. 4 Terrence Cody, Nose Tackle from Alabama
Out of all the players in the draft this is the guy I really want the Chiefs to pick up. Like Golden Tate this is another guy that probably is not worth drafting really high in the draft.
If the Chiefs want this guy they will either have to trade down or hope he is available in the second round. He is a perfect fit for the Chiefs.
He is 370 pounds of pure talent and is the best nose tackle in the draft in a long time. The nose tackle position is the biggest need in the front seven. Cody is even a threat in goal line offense lining up at fullback making way for touchdowns for heisman winner Mark Ingram.
No. 3 Joe Haden, Defensive Back from Florida
Joe Haden is a future Charles Woodson. He makes tackles, gets sacks, and intercepts passes. Joe Haden is the best cornerback in the draft and second best overall defensive back available. So if Kansas City wants to get a defensive back to help that terrible secondary this is their back up plan if Eric Berry is already taken.
No. 2 Russell Okung, Offensive Tackle from Oklahoma State
Russell Okung is the best offensive linemen in the draft and offensive line is the Chiefs biggest need on offense.
Okung is the most pure and most consitent offensive players on the board. He allowed only one sack all year better then Chiefs current left tackle Branden Albert who has allowed nine. Moving Albert over to the right side and Okung at the left would be a threat.
No. 1 Eric Berry, Safety from Tennessee
The Kansas City Chiefs have to pick up this guy as he will turn around their defense.
He is the best player on the board. If he is available the Chiefs cannot refuse to draft him.
Like I have said before, Eric Berry is a young Ed Reed and can reach those type of heights.
If the Chiefs want a defensive player more than anything this is the guy to go with.
