Bradbury could be a stud for a long time. But would be gone in the first 40 picks probably.

It’s beginning to look like he’ll work his way into the later half of the first round, where the Chiefs are scheduled to make a selection.

Taking a center at 29 is gonna be a little hard to swallow.

I wouldn’t expect it. That’s why you re-signed Reiter, an insurance policy so that you don’t have to reach or overpay for a new C.

If someone falls to to R2 or R3 and you’ve got a R1/R2 grade on them, that is when they will grab one.

It’s one of those picks that at the time would just feel blah

But then you’d get into the season and be like”yeah, nicely done”

Ideally atleast

Depends on if they do something creative in FA to address S/CB. If they manage to entice Collins here and sign a solid CB then I wouldn't have a problem with it. If not then you gotta spend that 1st pick in the secondary whether its #29 or a trade up a few spots to get the dude they want.

Isn't center basically the equivalent of vice president on offense? Not arguing with you and my 30 second Google search at where centers are taken in past drafts seems to back your theory.

I don't know a whole lot about the responsibilities of this position outside of blocking a nose tackle.

In recent years, the importance of centers for a football team has increased, due to the re-emergence of 3–4 defenses. According to Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, "you need to have somebody who can neutralize that nose tackle. If you don't, everything can get screwed up. Your running game won't be effective and you'll also have somebody in your quarterback's face on every play."[1]

Looks like they are doing their due diligence on all the day 2 guys at the position so I wouldn't rule it out early.
