  • Sounds good except Thorpe wasnt in the top 10. Why not? I'd say put Thorpe in and take Parks out. Like the idea of Kansas TE working out & I think he's got a decent shot with Moeaki & Boss being the only 2 TE's on the Chiefs roster.

2012 Draft Review: Kansas City Chiefs

Outside of staying healthy, the priority for the Chiefs this year was improving their run defense, which ranked 26th in the NFL last season. They made a move to do that early on. From there, Kansas City added depth to places where they lost guys to free agency, trades, and last season, injury. Here is [...]

Kansas City Chiefs 2012 Draft Grades

11. NT Dontari Poe CDontari Poe is the definition of a boom or bust prospect. He has phenomenal measurables, but he had minimal production on a crappy team in a small conference in Conference-USA and the tape doesn’t match at to his measurables. He’s also more of a straight line athlete than anything too. I liked him a lot more in the 2nd round, but I’ll average an A and an...

AFC West Rookie Focus: Devon Wylie, Kansas City Chiefs

I had been uneasy all week leading up to the game.  Unlike most of the other Nebraska Cornhusker football fans sitting near me in Memorial Stadium in Lincoln on that Saturday afternoon in September, I knew Fresno State was not just another non-conference cupcake win.  Pat Hill’s squad was for real.  He takes pride in [...]

Chiefs Add To RB Stable With Cyrus Gray

The Kansas City Chiefs tabbed running back Cyrus Gray with pick No. 182 in the 2012 NFL Draft. Fantasy Spin: Gray projected as a third-round talent, and this was a strong value pick for Kansas City. He is a solid all-purpose back with quick feet and soft hands, and provides good depth with Jamaal Charles coming off a torn ACL and Peyton Hillis a question mark while coming off a dismal...

Draft Grades: Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs gambled early and often in this class, focusing on players with high upside despite minimal on-field production in college. It’s a bold strategy, and Scott Pioli is putting his job on the line. If these draft classes don’t pan out, he’ll be on the hot seat in a year or two. Dontari Poe is a classic boom-or-bust prospect. It’s impossible to overlook...

Chiefs draft deserves a passing grade

Going into the NFL draft, the Chiefs had one huge need nose tackle. Well, you could make the case they had two glaring needs. If you're like me, you're not a big believer in Matt Cassel. But at least at quarterback, the Chiefs had actual bodies on the depth chart. At nose tackle, on the other hand, the Chiefs had just Jerrell Powe, who played all of seven snaps in 2011...

Todd Haley already having an impact

The Steelers had a great draft this weekend.  They picked up two offensive linemen in the first two rounds.  Both guys could potentially start this season and if that is the case the Steelers will have truly upgraded their offensive line. This is something the Steelers have neglected to do in the past.  They did draft Maurkice Pouncey in the first round 2 seasons ago but otherwise...

2012 NFL Draft Breakdown-Kansas City Chiefs

The AFC West in 2012 could be up for grabs, and the Kansas City Chiefs might just be the team which snatches the division title. One year removed from a playoff berth and a 2011 tumultuous season under head coach Todd Haley, the Chiefs under Romeo Crennel could reach post-season play in 2012. If Crennel can get 2010-like production out of QB Matt Cassel, the Chiefs make a strong...

Scouting Profile: Terrence Ganaway

The former Baylor Bear fits the mold of Rex Ryan's ground and pound formula. Drawing comparisons to Lagarrette Blount with Tampa Bay and Jackie Battle with Kansas City, Ganaway's bruising style will make him an effective goal-line and short yardage back for Gang Green. Take a look at Ganaway through the eyes of an NFL Scout.
