Morning Huddle – Imagine Thinking About Drafting Offense This Year

Chiefs news for 6 February 2019

If Chiefs keep their first-round pick in the NFL Draft, here’s where they’ll select | KC Star

The first-round order of the NFL Draft is official. The Chiefs will select No. 29 in the April 25-27 draft in Nashville. Trades have taken the Chiefs out of the first round in two of the previous three years. The only first-round selection the Chiefs have made since 2015 is quarterback Patrick Mahomes in 2017, and they traded up from No. 27 to No. 10 to get him.

NFL Draft 2019: Kansas City Chiefs should select wide receiver early | Arrowhead Addict

It will be easy for some to read the headline here and immediately dismiss the idea. While the defense needs considerable work, general manager Brett Veach cannot forget to improve the offense as well. One area the Chiefs could dramatically enhance their future is by taking a wide receiver with one of their first three picks of the draft this season. There is plenty of talent at the position with names like D.K. Metcalf, N’Keal Harry, Kelvin Harmon, Riley Ridley, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and Deebo Samuel entering the draft.

Kansas City Chiefs: Four players to cut in 2019 offseason | KC Kingdom

I’m putting an asterisk by this one because the Chiefs should only cut Justin Houston if he’s not willing to restructure his current contract.
Sorensen did have a nice game against the Patriots, but for the most part, he hasn’t been great.

‘I feel very stupid.’ Writer offers mea culpa for ripping Chiefs for drafting Mahomes | KC Star

“What was I thinking? I was a big fan of Mahomes’ arm strength, but felt that if a team were trading up at the time, it should have been for DeShaun Watson, who I saw as as safer and better pick. I honestly felt that the things I saw from Mahomes — the freelancing, throwing across his body on the run, sidearming the ball and trying to fit it into tight spots — would make him a turnover machine in the NFL.”

Really people just need to stop asking about it. If we haven’t heard anything by now, nothing is getting out until the spags presser at the earliest. And out of all the info we don’t have, berry’s surgery really isn’t all that important. I don’t even think about it anymore. We’ll know when we know.

How in the world is Berry’s surgery not all that important? He’s one of the two best AND most expensive defensive players we have.

I’m down for a top WR or top flight TE in the first. In absolutely no circumstance can you reach for either though. What’s the deal with this Iowa TE that everybody has the Homeless Raiders taking right before us?

Someone much smarter than I, what would it take and would it be worth the cost to get a CJ Mosley and Earl Thomas? Or Mosley and a starting worthy CB? Would something like that make sense for this defense?

Spotrac has a nifty new feature called Market Value that projects contracts. However they don’t have every player covered yet. Here’s Mosley’s…

Depending on his health I’d see Earl getting close to $10mil a year…but he might have to do a 1 year prove it deal…

Mahomes has a gear shop open. Everyone re-mortgage your house and buy gear so he gets rich and hopefully gives us a discount when the time comes.

If the Raiders are still looking for a place to play, I hear STL would like to have some NFL games…

I wouldn’t mind a 4 hour away road (home) game. It’d essentially be like the Chargers going to LA…just an opportunity for displaced fans of the visiting team to get a chance to go to a game…

The real perk would be the following year when we got to see STL lose yet another NFL team…that’d be the 5th for those counting.

I hate reading Watson was the safer pick. Dude couldn’t make all the throws in college but some how he would be able to at the highest level? #Alex2.0

Mahomes was graded out a 2nd round pick. A QB who could make all the throws but needed to learn an NFL offense.

Give me the QB who can make all the throws and teach him the offense. Oh wait… KC did in fact do that

It was just lazy on everyone’s part to over look pat. I think the real selling point was his work ethic. They got him in the building and everyone knew what he was about. People who just watched the film and labeled him as reckless didn’t see his determination to be great. I think the most impressive thing about pat is that he puts the work in and doesn’t have a big head considering his talent. That’s the difference between pat and a guy like Jamarcus russel

I’m guilty too, i thought Watson would be the safe pick, even though Mahomes could make all the throws. I didn’t believe the Chiefs were going to get one of the top 3 QB,
i believe if Mahomes went to the wrong team, they could have tried to change him, and made him and average QB with a strong arm. ( Bills, Jets)
I refuse to admit i was wrong, because i didn’t think Mahomes was going to the Chiefs.

Yeah, I thought the big game experience was too important to pass up with Watson. I understood he was limited compared to Mahomes, but he had that “it factor” where he just played out of his mind on the biggest stage and made things happen. I’ve seen so many QBs do that against us that I wanted that for my own.

As the draft got closer, and more of the review guys started to endorse Mahomes skillset as being perfect for Andy I started to come around to the point where I still “wanted” Watson but kinda expected it to be Mahomes if somehow we got to pick between them. I would have been happy at the time to get either. We got one and I was happy enough with that.

I know it is classless to brag now, but I was so relieved when the Chiefs took Mahomes over Watson I screamed and cheered and called my wife with the news. Never cheered during the draft before.

Same.

It seemed to me like all the arguments for Watson came down to two basic points – he makes plays with his legs, and “he just wins.” For probably obvious reasons, I didn’t put any stock into either of those things.

The Chiefs have better (Vegas) odds to win the Super Bowl next year. I guess the Patriots can start their “everyone thinks we suck” narrative a little earlier this year.

It makes me happy to think that in about 20 years Patriots fans will be like Cowboys fans are today. Still annoying, but clinging to the success they had 20+ years ago and no longer relevant.

I said something similar back in 1970 and am still waiting, hope you don’t have to wait as long.
