Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>*** 2019 Prospect Tracker: Chiefs Interest / Visits / Work Outs ***
Dante84 02:02 AM 01-26-2019
Well, we made it all the way to Overtime of the AFC Championship. With a solid draft, we could get over the hump.

This is the 8th year in a row that we will be tracking the college players the Chiefs have publicly or privately expressed interest in leading up to the NFL Draft.

Here's how we did in 2018. We had 7 guys on the list end up making the roster, including 4 draft picks! Hell of job, guys!

For those who are new, the way this operates is that we collectively monitor various social media sources, blogs, articles and reports for news of the Chiefs' interest in a certain player. When posted in this thread, I will update the OP to include the player. *Please provide the link to the article, the players name, position and team.

I am going to try to link to player profiles when they exist, courtesy of The Draft Network, a pretty sweet new website.

Let's meet some of our future Chiefs:

IMO, the one position on offense that needs to be filled is a versatile TE/H-back/FB type to be a legit 5th receiving option when AR goes heavy. I think Alize Mack, Notre Dame, could fill that role. Receiving options didn't put up good numbers in ND's offense, but Mack has 4.5 speed, good agility, and is listed between 6'3'' and 6'5'' tall and 244lbs and 251 lbs. Scouts think he'll do well in a pro offense.

Really hoping the Chiefs' 1st pick is a CB that can start his first year. Even if it means moving up for fair compensation. CB is a premium position & a position of need. Locking up a 5 yr rookie contract for a starting CB seems like a top option for the Chiefs.

To me the difference is versatility. Omenihu is a monster off the edge, but he can also hold up on the run and shows well when he is used in coverage. Todd Orlando's defense is pretty exotic and he liked to drop Omenihu back in obvious passing downs and bring pressure with the linebackers. With there being some concerns about Houston as a SAM in Spags defense, that extra flexibility and unpredictability could be a big asset.

One of the things that I think would be fascinating with him is how he could be used in obvious passing downs. He was a 3-tech in Texas' 34 defense, but I think is more natural as a LEO in a 43. He could slide inside, spin Houston down to the LEO, and give us the opportunity to really create some havoc upfront.

So far looking at a few I really like. I'm interested in Hanks too at LB. He's kind of hot and cold for me though, but he has the talent.

I think obviously we need to target a CB(or two) high, a late round flyer CB or potentially even undrafted would be Brian Peavy from Iowa State. According to PFF he was one of if not the best CB’s in the nation this year and on their awards, he was first team All-American. Classic example of a guy who doesn’t kill in in combine drills, but is a great football player and classic example of someone who could easily be a steal.

Our position needs are CB, Safety, ILB, DT, OG.
At CB, I like Greedy Williams(Early 1st), Trayvon Mullen(Early 2nd), Amani Oruwariye(Early 2nd), or Kris Boyd(Mid 2nd)
At Safety I like Deionte Thompson(Mid-Late 1st), Johnathan Abram(Mid 2nd), Juan Thornhill(Mid-Late 2nd), Jaquon Johnson (Early 3rd), or Lukas Denis(Mid 3rd)
At ILB I like Devin White(Early 1st), Mack Wilson(Early 2nd),Tre Lamar (Mid 3rd)
At DT, I like basically all of them that can be taken in the first 3 rounds.
At OG, I like Beau Benzschwal(Early 3rd)

Can't catch. He's basically Harris but worse.

No.

they'll bring in guys at every position every year. I'll bet they even invite a QB or two to camp.

I'm saying RB is not a priority; we have 2 that have played well and two more that we could re-sign that are average to above average if we want. There will be UDFA's in camp, and perhaps a late round pick because that's how you run an NFL franchise.

There's not a NEED at the position. If you want to talk about offensive needs, we will likely NEED a C, could use a G, and have only one TE.

On defense, we likely need 4 or 5 guys, depending on who we keep of the higher paid older cats; most of whom are injured a lot. Most of whom I would imagine, they let go.
