Why is it that I love the NFL draft so much? I mean, the Royals have the first overall pick and I don't really care what college pitcher they take. The Chiefs have been really crappy at drafting for a while, yet I still read all the scouting reports and dream about the different players we could take and hopefully improve.
I've most commonly seen us associated with defensive backs Tye Hill, Joseph, and Cromartie. I'm not extremely sold on any. That sentiment falls in line with the general consensus that there are only 18-21 players worthy of first round pick. Somewhere I found a list of players by round ratings, not where they would go. There were 45ish players with 2nd round ratings. We are at the 20 spot and have clear needs, so the likelihood of a reach is quite high. Peterson has done it before, and well it could happen again.
It was interesting to see however that Pat Kirwan on nfl.com has us taking Tamba Hali. This seems to coincide with Edwards faith that he can find CB talent outside of the first round. Also of note is that Ty Law is still out there. Granted, he supposedly got beat like a drum last year while collecting his interceptions. JD - our Jet's correspondent, what say you?
I'm sure every team is trying, but I'd love to see us trade down and add some picks if a top CB isn't there. I've given up on believing Carl can draft defensive linemen. Looking at the Patriots, I am jealous at how they always seem to have lots of picks.
