Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>The logic of drafting OT in the 1st.
Direckshun 01:23 PM 01-21-2021
What we know about this team is that it typically likes to fill its roster out as much as possible in free agency and then spend its highest picks on potential replacements for job openings a year down the road, and that includes Veach.

I doubt I even need to run down the list but:

2020: CEH --> Williams
2019: Hardman --> Hill/Watkins
2018: Speaks --> Ford/Houston
2017: Mahomes --> Smith

Fisher will be on the last year of his contract, and most of us suspect Schwartz retiring.

The Chiefs obviously like Niang but going OT 1st gives them the options:It just seems like the kind of move that gives them the flexibility in future decisions that they like to have.

I'd rather they go DE, even if it means trading up for one. But based on what we know, OT could ostensibly solve up to two different OL spots in 2021 and gives them all kinds of options in 2022 based on how 2021 goes.

Teven Jenkins and Vera-Tucker are two I could see slotting there at 32. Just depends on how the predraft workouts go.

I think KCís best bet might be planning to sit at 32 but then move up from 64 to move to the mid-50s using some comp picks/future picks.

Take DE/WR at 32 and a T in the 50s.

Nope. Last year of his contract so he'll be looking for a big extension.

610 said the Chiefs could save 16 million by cutting Fisher and Mitch.

I don’t see Vera-Tucker making it, and I think there will be a WR/DE there that I like more than Jenkins. I agree that a trade up in the 2nd would be our best bet.

If Veach believes there's a dire need he'll sell the farm to get it which would be in the 15-20 spot to get a LT

Cant cut an injured player.

The silverback to the rescue.

Even better for us. They'd take less in a trade knowing you had to sign him. That woudl be an easy trade.

32 for him, give him a big deal. Done.

I really hope they don't do that. We need all the cheap, drafted players we can get.

Trading 2 or 3 of them to get one player just isn't a good idea at this stage.

Veach has shown he can get those cheap players later or as UDFA though.

LT is just so important for what KC does on offense. If they think there's a legit guy they love there, go get him.
