Building?

They had dog shit at the position, so drafting a RB in the first was almost a given, which is what I’ve been saying for a month.

I’m sure they’re going sign more than one UDFA running back, too.

I didn't even know attempting to buy drugs was a crime.
I'm guessing you'll be shocked to hear that attempting to murder someone is also illegal.

They maybe could have traded back a little, but it does look like there will be a run on running backs in round two, so I am good with the selection.

I was thinking it was gonna be him or the Swift kid from Georgia. Seems like all of the defensive talent we were interested in was already gone.

Also, this is a good sign to me that they are confident they can resign Chris Jones. If they were not, surely they would have gone with a DT in this spot.

Also, I like the pick even more after seeing the rest of the AFC West picks in the first round....they are giving up on trying to defend us, they wanna try to outscore us, and I think that plays right into our hands.
He's patient like Priest, has soft hands like Priest. But Priest never had this kind of short area burst and agility. His feet don't move this fast. CEH's stop and go is elite.

Him and D Will are gonna be a lethal 1-2 punch. D Will will obviously be in on third down plays as he’s the better blocker but I do see them splitting time

Veach loves this kid

Brett Veach is not afraid to say he thinks Clyde Edwards-Helaire can be a Pro Bowler.

"It's hard to pass up those guys for the sake of extra picks. We think this guy can be great," Veach said.

Brett Veach said he views Clyde Edwards-Helaire as an every down RB because of the offense the Chiefs run. Veach isn't concerned about Edwards' 5-foot-7, 200-plus pound frame.

Burttt Veach!

Brett Veach told Andy Reid to watch some Clyde Edwards-Helaire film and told Reid you’ll see Brian Westbrook. Reid watched. Then got back to Veach and said he’s better than Westbrook.

A RB in the 1st round
Not a polished traditional runner
Not a polished blocker

overall
Great at doing what Andy will ask him to do even though taking a RB in the 1st round usually isn't a good idea. #32 is almost the 2nd round though. The main issue is teaching him how to pass block. He is short but very stout so he should be able to.

This isn't the luxury pick that the t.v. guys keep saying. We have legitimate needs on defense. Fills the main need we had on offense.

My head is still sort of reeling.
This is pretty much just a bad take.

:-) at thinking Swift is a better RB. Have you watched Swift? I mean actually watched him, not just his highlights. I dont know how you can come away thinking he'll be a better pro.

Has Veach missed on one of his love affair picks?

Wasn’t he instrumental in a few of the Eagles stars too? Obviously, Mahomes and Hardman too.

As a fan...I wanted KC to nab a stud RB at #32. I didn't think they would do it but next season will be entertaining..

This guy is perfect for Reid's offense....

Not his entire career but yes, I've seen him play. More than I've seen CEH.
