Figure we should have a thread just for this. Who you guys like? Early, mid round, etc.

I’ve said it before, but if we don’t go CB I think it’ll be safety. DB either way.

Adderly would be at the top of my list for sure.

So I’m wondering how much the metrics change with Spagnuolo running the defense now?

Dorsey/Sutton always targeted 6’0 minimum height, length and a primary skill of being able to play press man. Spagnuolo is more multiple in coverage. Will he and Veach be as stubborn about measurables?

Baker is a good case study here: the dude is 5’10” at best, but he is fluid, smart, and steps up in run defend. This kid has some DAWG to him - I love his game. He lacks physical measurables that would have been non-starters for a Dorsey pick. I’m intetested to see Spagnuolo’s influence in this regard.

Personally, I’d love Deandre Baker or Byron Murphy as the Chiefs 1st round selection - can’t go wrong either route. I also am really intrigued by DE Jaylon Ferguson. I like the safety Adderly, but I’m not entirely sold he will have the impact these others will have.

Baker is listed 5’11” and it looks accurate IMO

Also, aside from Ward, all 3 of our corners last year were under 6’0”

5”10, 5”11

I don’t care about that. If he’s fluid and athletic and has good ball skills sign me up

Adderley isn't a CB so I'm not sure if you're referencing him. He was at Delaware due to academic issues. He would have played at a power 5 school but just screwed around too much.

His NFL profile has him at 5'10", 185.

The NFL Combine 40 times is a big influence of the round where cornerbacks get drafted.

Baker, Mullen, or Murphy would all be good picks for KC.

A CB I did not know about until seeing him in the Senior Bowl is a Topeka kid that played at Washburn University, Corey Ballentine. He won the Cliff Harris Award for best small school defensive player. He is 6-0, 195 and was also a kick returner and has good speed and can mirror wide receivers. If you want to watch him you can watch Senior Bowl practices, Senior Bowl, and there are a lot of Washburn games available to watch. He does make some mistakes but he is a good athlete and can recover from it. I've seen him projected as a 4th round pick which maybe we can get if we end up doing some trades.

For some reason I feel like safeties from smaller programs transition easier

I just want a corner thatís ready to go thatís not overwhelmed by the jump in competition

From the sounds of it, Baker and Murphy are quite pro ready.

Excited to see these guys test at the combine. Feels like a lot of the corners are being pushed down draft board because of questions about athleticism, but Iím looking at a lot of these guys and I just see gamers. Guys like Baker, Murphy, Amani, etc., they just look and feel like players to me. Especially in the right system.

I'm all in on Deandre Baker, because he fits Spagnolo's scheme.

I love Murphy and Baker at 29, but I think the forgotten guy is Mullen. I think he has a great combine and gets back in the conversation.

I think getting another tall cb alongside Ward might be the way to go when you consider we face those big wr's from the Chargers twice a year.
