NFL Mock Draft 2011: Kansas City Chiefs Get a Big Offensive Weapon
Dwayne Bowe Gets A Partner with Second Pick
The Kansas City Chiefs need to do whatever they can to upgrade their offense in 2011.
The Chiefs have a problem because they overpaid for Matt Cassel. They can rectify this problem by giving him another downfield threat like Jonathan Baldwin.
The problem is Cassel is a good quarterback, but he is not a great quarterback you should be giving a huge contract and the keys to the franchise to.
Cassel looked above average in New England under some of the best coaches in the league. He had that again in 2010 with Charlie Weiss, but now Weiss is gone and it is all Todd Haley.
Haley is not a bad coach, but he is not a great coach and not very good at recognizing his own shortcomings.
By drafting Baldwin, it does give Cassel more targets to throw to and allow Dwayne Bowe more room to work.
The Chiefs might want to look at drafting a quarterback in the late rounds because Cassel has hit his peak, and without Weis, there may be nowhere to go but down.
