The NFL Draft is now over and the Kansas City Chiefs seems to have an LSU connection here. How would you grade the team's picks and where do they go from here?

There are currently four players on the Chiefs roster that comes from LSU. The most notable is by far Glenn Dorsey.

Glenn Dorsey did not play up to his expectations last year as he tried to fit into Gunthers scheme. We all know what type of player he can be as we seen from his LSU days.

He is an explosive and huge figure to play up against. If he catches on to Todd Haleys scheme, he will be a force to be reckon with.

Dwayne Bowe for instance has seemed to pick up the system nicely. Dwayne and Matt Cassel should put up some good numbers this year, if all goes right. With the loss of Tony Gonzalez, Dwayne should be the number one go to guy.

Travis Daniels shows alot of promise but still has a way to go to be a stop cornerback. Travis also has alot of competition this year with Carr and Flowers on the rise.

That leaves Tyson Jackson, at 6'4" 296 lbs.He is a big statue at the defensive end spot. Tyson Jackson started 38 of 53 games at LSU recording 122 tackles (53 solos).

He ranks eighth in school history with 18.5 sacks and 30 quarterback pressures. Not bad stats for a kid that comes from West St. John High School.

As he reunites with Glenn Dorsey, and show the skills he showed at LSU, together they should be a dominate force for the Chiefs defensive line.

 With the number of LSU players and the Patriots leadership along with Todd Haley's knowledge of talent, the Kansas City Chiefs should be the team to beat, if the puzzle falls in place.
