2011 NFL Draft Grades: Key Additions Give the Kansas City Chiefs High Marks
The Chiefs Hit All The Right Areas With Baldwin, Hudson, Bailey and Stanzi
The Kansas City Chiefs had a very good draft, and they have all the big names to prove it.
The Chiefs picked up several "name" players who fell in this year's draft after being rated higher early in the process like Allen Bailey. Bailey was drafted in the third round, but he had been seen on many first-round mock drafts back in January and February.
Jonathan Baldwin ended up going in the first round despite his sub-par Pro Day, proving the Chiefs looked at game tape and not a workout in shorts with no corners in his face.
Ricky Stanzi was drafted in the fifth round, and he will be pencilled in as Matt Cassell's backup as Brodie Croyle's play last year in the backup role just was not acceptable.
The Chiefs also took a chance on Justin Houston in the third round. Houston was a lock for the first round until news came out right before the draft he failed a drug test.
At the end of the day, Dwayne Bowe got someone to draw coverage away from him, Cassell gets a new backup and the defense should be getting major upgrades going into 2011.
