The Gonzo Lounge>Suggested Post-Draft Free Agents & Trade Ideas?
Couch-Potato 07:13 AM 05-02-2021
What say you CP? What are the best available FA acquisitions and trade scenarios for the Chiefs post-draft?


Shwartz or Fisher, to compete with Niang for RT?

Breeland, Earl Thomas or Sherman at DB?

Melvin Ingram as dedicated Pass Rusher?

Larry Fitzgerald or Goldan Tate as WR #2?

Pull off the big trade for Julio!?

Here’s what I’m guessing for our 53 right now. The only other addition I’m assuming is Breeland. Obviously, we’ll pick others up, so this is just for now. Did I miss anyone?

Typed on my phone, so I’m sure there’s a spelling error somewhere.

Offense (26):

QB: Mahomes, Henne (2)
RB: CEH, Williams, McKinnon, Thompson, Burton (5)
TE: Kelce, Gray, Bell (3)
WR: Hill, Hardman, Robinson, Pringle, Calloway, Powell (6)
OT: Brown, Niang, Remmers (3)
OG: Thuney, LDT, Long, Smith, Allegretti (5)

Veach will trade him to a team that has an underproducing WR with top end skill.

Watch.

Allegreti isnít very good in pass protection and I think would be better on the right side...but has an uphill battle for snaps over there, too.

He and Wylie are the guys Iíd bet on getting traded before we end up needing to cut them.

We don't know what is going to happen at RG. Seeing as we have 2 guys that have been out of the game for a year and one of them was not great before. And they are both only here on one year deals.

So here's the deal...you actually have 3 guys as Blythe was a better guard than center for the Rams.

That doesn't even take into account that Trey Smith is an option as a young player can pick up guard quickly. Add on Mike Remmers could play guard if needed.

Also Yasir Durants NFL position is guard, there's tons of options here.

Needs left unaddressed during draft?
The Chiefs donít have a glaring hole on their roster after the draft. Instead, the team has a few areas to address. The biggest is probably signing a veteran pass rusher, such as Melvin Ingram, to be a potential starter opposite of star defensive end Frank Clark on the Chiefsí defensive line. The Chiefs could also take a flyer on a veteran safety since they have just four players at that position following the draft. Re-signing veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland, a starter the past two seasons, should also be pursued by Veach to continue solidifying the Chiefsí secondary.

How has the outlook for the season changed?
After trading for Brown, the mission for Veach was to select prospects who are serviceable at other, less desperate roster needs. The Chiefs find a nice balance in selecting prospects who are both durable and productive and still have upside to grow and develop in the NFL.

The 2021 draft is likely to be remembered most for how the Chiefs finished overhauling their offensive line in acquiring Brown and Humphrey. Both players should help give superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes greater protection, perhaps the best he has had in his five-year career, this upcoming season. Veach also provided Mahomes with two new skill-position players in Gray and Powell.

With this a draft class, Chiefs could receive valuable production this upcoming season from five prospects in Bolton, Humphrey, Kaindoh, Gray and Powell. If those players quickly realize their potential on the field, the group will be one of the best classes in the Veach era with the Chiefs.

Yeah I think Durant is likely the odd man out or at least religated to the PS.

I am figuring they will carry 9 or maybe 10 OL

Orlando Brown Jr
Joe Thuney
Creed Humphrey
LDT
Remmers

Lucas Niang, is the Swing Tackle the thought of Remmers back at LT is cringy.
Austin Blythe is the first backup at C.
Kyle Long is the first backup at RG.
Nick Allegretti is the first backup at LG.
Trey Smith, Daryl Williams, Prince Tega Wanogho all might make it to the PS.
Andrew Wylie, Martinas Rankin, Yasir Durant, Bryan Witzman might all get cut or traded, we wouldn't get anything really but hey we might be able to get another Charvarius Ward type. :-)

Injuries will happen so someone might start the season on PUP or IR.

I wish someone like Kenny Britt at 25 or 26 years old was available in FA.

I dont want a 32 or 33 year old WR

Nothing wrong with adding an older WR on a one year/cap friendly deal as the Chiefs need a veteran WR.

I think it is worth taking a flyer on Alshon Jeffery.

He is a big/physical WR that the Chiefs were trying to sign with JuJu and heís familiar with the Chiefs offensive system playing for Doug Pederson.

Heard all that stuff before. He made it almost all the way through the 6th round. If someone wanted him very bad he would not have made it that late in the draft.

I worry about them having Sammy Watkins syndrome.
