Chiefs Seven Round Mock Draft 3.0

ncf_i_laelcollins_ms_400x600

With the compensatory picks being announced last week, Chiefs Kingdom now knows how many times John Dorsey will be picking in the upcoming draft. With four compensatory picks (3rd, two 5th’s, and a 6th), the Chiefs will be picking a total of 10 times. In this post, I predict who the Chiefs will take with those 10 picks.

Round One, Pick 18: Tackle La’El Collins (LSU)

For the avid readers of KC SportsNation and of my work at TopSportsReport, you’ve learned two things about me. Firstly, I believe the solidifying of the Chiefs offensive line is critical to their future success. Secondly, I adore La’El Collins. He had a standout combine ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JB-URPeh61k) and during his collegiate career he was a standout offensive lineman. While I think he has room to grow as a tackle, I believe he can be a Pro Bowl guard in year one. His toughness, power, and nastiness will serve him well at the next level. Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika may have been added to be 2015 starters, but I believe selecting Collins will add depth, quality talent, and youth to an offensive line that must improve in 2015 if the Chiefs intend on building upon 2014. I believe he’s a safer pick than Andrus Peat, who I think is a major boom or bust prospect. An starting offensive line made up of Eric Fisher, Collins, Eric Kush, Grubbs, and Jeff Allen/Donald Stephenson is a major improvement upon last season.

Round Two, Pick 49: WR Rashad Greene (Florida St.)

6_648393

Despite my admiration for Kansas State’s Tyler Lockett, I feel like Greene could be the steal of the draft. He has first round hands, route running ability, and clutch factor. He was the first player in FSU history to lead team in receiving four straight years, including back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons. He finished his career with 42 games recording at least one catch. He also has the FSU record for career receptions (270) and receiving yards (3,830) with one 200-yard and 15 100-yard receiving games. He also has experienced lining up inside and outside at the X, Y and Z positions. To boost his stock, he’s an experienced punt returner with a 12.3 average and two career scores. Greene is the perfect complement to the speedy Jeremy Maclin, and his versatility will keep opposing defenses from keying on either one. When in doubt, potential No. 1 pick Jameis Winston found Greene time and time again. Not because Greene is the biggest or the fastest, but because of the hard work and dedication of the rising star. If Dorsey wants to continue to build the Chiefs future, he needs to take Greene.

Round Three, Pick 80: LB Denzel Perryman (Miami)

0

Looking long term, Derrick Johnson’s career is winding down. The Chiefs would be wise to find the future at the position. Perryman would be an excellent solution. Here are his high-school stats: 177 tackles, 12 for losses, 9 sacks and 5 interception returns for touchdowns and 9 interceptions as a senior and he registered 105 tackles, 9 sacks and 6 interceptions as a sophomore. His collegiate stats include 243 tackles, 22 for losses, and 6 forced fumbles. Rather than looking for ways around contact, Perryman was always initiating it, becoming well known for his massive collisions. Perryman would be an excellent fit in Bob Sutton’s aggressive defense. The Chiefs need someone who isn’t afraid to make contact.

Round Three, Pick 98 (compensatory): C B.J. Finney (Kansas St.)

With Eric Kush being the only viable center on the roster, the Chiefs should add depth and a possible starter via the draft. Finney would be a solid pick because of his strong hands and his abilities as a pass protector (allowed 2.5 sacks over his four year career). Finney’s NFL comparison by many is Green Bay’s Corey Linsley, and while Linsey was overlooked coming out, he’s developed into a very good player. Finney could be the same.

Round Four, Pick 118: CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (Oregon)

While his late season knee injury might scare some teams away, his play beforehand would have guaranteed him a spot in the first round. He moves extremely well, and despite his height (5’9), he plays the ball well and isn’t afraid to get in a receiver’s face. Bob Sutton and Emmitt Thomas, the Chiefs defensive backs coach, could do wonders for a corner like Olomu.

Round Five, Pick 172 (Compensatory): TE Gerald Christian (Louisville)

Travis Kelce needs a running mate, so why not pair him with one of the most underrated tight end prospects in the 2015 class? Christian is the classic “move” tight end who can catch the 50/50 balls.

Round Five, Pick 173 (Compensatory): DE Chucky Hunter (TCU)

Running a 3-4 means you don’t have to worry about finding defensive tackles who can rush the passer. You need one that can occupy gaps and stop the run. That’s the perfect fit for the 6’1, 305-pound Chucky Hunter, who offers very little as a pass rusher. However, his ability to chase plays from behind lends to the idea that he would make a good run stuffer. The Chiefs are also weak at DT with the departures of Vance Walker and Kevin Vickerson.

Round Six, Pick 193: LB Trey DePriest (Alabama)

Adding quality depth in the later rounds is key to having a solid bench when the regular season comes. DePriest is a liability in coverage, but he excels when asked to charge downhill and attack the run. DePriest’s limitations likely would make him a two down player, but he would also add depth to the special teams.

Round Six, Pick 217 (compensatory): RB B.J Catalon (TCU)

Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis are the unquestioned No. 1 and No. 2 backs, but what No. 3? Catalon is versatile, having lined up in the slot as a receiver at times and also returned some kickoffs. When in the slot, he ran quality slant routes and showed an ability to catch. While people may point to his six fumbles over his last 205 carries, Davis saw his stock drop because of the same problem, and he’s turned into a solid back.

Round Seven, Pick 233: WR Geremy Davis (UCONN)

While he might be a long shot to be on the final 53, his ability to make contested catches over the middle could vault him over the top. He is a candidate to move to tight end because of his rawness at the receiver position.
