Kansas City Chiefs 2019 Draft Analysis

Photo Credits: NBC Sports

Heading into the 2019 NFL Draft, the Chiefs had only six picks due to the Frank Clark trade, which sent the Chief’s first pick this year and a second in 2020 to Seattle, and most likely had to change up their draft board after the news of Tyreek Hill’s situation was released. Also, the Chiefs and their fans know that they are only a player or two away from the Superbowl so this draft was definitely more important then most in the past for them. All of that said, Brett Veach and Andy Reid ended up putting together a solid draft with what they hope sets up a dynasty in Kansas City. So lets see how each pick affects the team and give it a letter grade.

Chiefs trade picks #61 and #167 to the Rams for the #56 pick and select Mecole Hardman(WR)

Not sure if it was really necessary to trade up to get Hardman, but the Chiefs management must have heard something. Chiefs may not have had Hardman as their number one guy on the draft board, but after the Tyreek Hill news broke Mecole boosted in draft stock for Kansas City. I don’t see Hardman as a number one at any point in his career due to his more explosive one or two plays a game type of guy. That said, he is put into the best offense situation with the reigning MVP and a great offensive minded coach, so it is up to him to put in the work and step up his game. Hardman will play the slot and has a chance to be the starting punt returner depending on what happens with Tyreek Hill.        Grade: B+

Chiefs select Juan Thornill(DB) with the #63 pick

This was my favorite pick of the night for the Super Bowl contenders. Juan Thornill can play corner back and safety which are the Chiefs top two needs. I think Thornill will start from day one and will solidify this defense as a huge improvement from last year. Thornill has some problems with tackling, but he makes versatile and athletic game changing plays. Great steal late in the second round for the Chiefs.    Grade: A

Chiefs select Khalen Saunders(DT) with the #84 pick

This dude is an athletic freak. He has great passion for the game and is regarded as the Aaron Donald of his college conference. He proved that at the Senior Bowl and that play really led the charge with this pick. Khalen joins the competitive group of Chris Jones, Derrick Nadi, and Alex Okafor. I think this will be a great steal for the Chiefs and I think Saunders can make this defensive line top 5. To sum it up, I love this pick.   Grade: A+

Chiefs select Rashad Fenton(CB) with the #201 pick

Rashad Fenton will be thrown into a young secondary and is another Chiefs corner experiment. It has become almost tradition for the Chiefs to take a corner late in the draft and hope for him to become something. He led his team in interceptions last year and looks to bring that to a team that did not get many turnovers last year. Fenton will have to fight for playing time, but is a good experimental pick for the Chiefs now at their greatest position of need.   Grade: A

“Lower body twitch, flashing the quick reflexes to pattern match…flashes a burst mid-route to undercut throws…quick-footed with smooth hip-turn to stay on top of routes…looks to mix things up in the run game…intense on-field competitor.”@dpbrugler on Rashad Fenton.

Chiefs select Darwin Thompson(RB) with the #214 pick

The two Chiefs running backs, Carlos Hyde and Damien Williams, are both on short term deals and don’t seem to be the long term plan in the backfield. So, the Chiefs went with Thompson to eventually become the sole back in years to come after a few seasons of sitting back and developing. He will not make a immediate impact and is a little under sized, but should play a supporting role in Andy Reid’s complicated offense.  Grade: A

Image result for nick allegretti

Chiefs select Nick Allegretti(C) with the#216 pick

The Chiefs old center Mitch Morse left in free agency to the Bills, so this pick came as no surprise. While they should have looked to get a center earlier in the draft, Allegretti is praised as a great leader by his coaches and peers. Its also said that he has a nasty edge by a Chiefs scout. The goal for the Chiefs here is to hope he can become a full time consistent center that will be looked at as a steal late in the draft much like their left guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif who was taken in the 6th round and has been a starter for many years.             Grade: A-

 

In conclusion,  I believe the Chiefs had a great draft this year. Their first three picks should all start at some point and I think the two defensive players could become pro bowlers in years to come after some development and experience. The Chiefs replaced Tyreek Hill with the picking of a identical type of player in Mecole Hardman. Also, theres a chance that the center they drafted late  could be a starter in the middle of the line for years. Brett Veach’s second draft will fill many holes on the Chiefs roster and could propel this team to the Super Bowl.

Saints Talk: 2019 NFL Draft Analysis

NOLA.com
The Saints 2019 NFL Draft wasn’t the best they’ve had but they improved several holes within their team. They got a MASSIVE steal in Florida Safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. I’ll go in depth into all of the draft selections we’ve taken.

ROUND 2 PICK 48 (Via Dolphins): Texas A&M Center Erik McCoy

Texags.com

I love this selection. The Saints traded up from No. 62 to 48 with the Dolphins and gave up their 2020 2nd round pick to get a 4th round pick back to select
Erik McCoy. McCoy was the second best Center in this draft class, just behind Vikings selection Garrett Bradbury. Some people criticize this pick because we signed former Vikings G/C Nick Easton, yet, we could place Easton at his primary position, guard, and let McCoy start right away. McCoy only gave up ONE sack in his whole collegiate career at Texas A&M. He’ll be a great piece to the Saints offense.

ROUND 4 PICK 105 (Via Jets): Florida Safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson

FloridaGators.com
The Saints, once again, traded up to select Florida Safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. Gardner-Johnson was selected 105th overall, yet he was projected to go in the second round. When the Saints saw him on the board, they couldn’t help but to pull the trigger and trade up for him. The Saints could utilize him at the nickel corner position because of his frame yet he’s a free safety. At Florida, he recorded 9 total INT’s, 3 of them going back for 6!

ROUND 6 PICK 177: Rutgers Safety Saquan Hampton

ScarletKnights.com
The Saints saw promise in Saquan Hampton so decided to select him with the draft pick they got from the Teddy Bridgewater trade with the Jets.

ROUND 7 PICK 231: Notre Dame TE Alizé Mack

TheAthletic.com
Alizé Mack is a big body TE at 6’5″ 247lbs. At Notre Dame, he had 716 yards for 4 touchdowns. He’s a very solid selection for the Saints.

ROUND 7 PICK 244: Idaho LB Kaden Elliss

Joshua Dahl – USA TODAY
The former Idaho Linebacker Kaden Elliss had a total of 9 sacks and 4 INT’s in his collegiate career. Mickey Loomis said he hopes Elliss can learn other positions as he briefly played TE but didn’t record any stats.

Bengals Waive DT Adolphus Washington

Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images

The Bengals have waived defensive depth piece, Adolphus Washington after signing him back in September.

Washington didn’t do a whole lot in stripes as he totaled six combined tackles and one sack in just four games in 2018.

This isn’t exactly a shocking move, but maybe a little bit of a surprise as it comes before the draft and not after. But, as Washington couldn’t stay healthy, he would also be buried on the depth chart by players such as; Geno Atkins, Andrew Billings, Ryan Glasgow, Josh Tupou, Christian Ringo, and Niles Scott. And that was not accounting for any players the Bengals may pick up via the draft.

Considering their actions throughout the offseason process, the Bengals seem poised to load up on front seven depth. They have already interviewed several key d-line projects and took a look and even signed a few free agents to boot.

Possible Draft Day Trades For The Saints

USA Today

The Saints are notorious for trading within the draft, especially in the Sean Payton era. In the Payton era, the Saints have traded every year except 2006 when Payton was hired and 2012 when Payton was suspended.

The Saints have traded from late in the second round to jump back into the first to snatch up a player they liked. They did this in 2011, going from No. 56 to No. 28 to select Alabama RB, Heisman Trophy winner, Mark Ingram.

AL.com

One possible draft day trade the Saints could pull off is trading up to No. 28 with the Chargers. The Chargers are rumored to be looking to trade out of the first round. The Saints could possibly package G Andrus Peat, No. 62 overall and either a 3rd or 4th round draft pick from 2020.

Another possible draft day trade is for the Saints to trade out of the second round and deal No. 62 overall and a 2020 3rd round pick to the Cardinals for CB Patrick Peterson. It’s rumored Peterson’s time in Arizona is almost over. The Saints repetitively tried to trade for the All-Pro CB last season before trading for former Giants CB Eli Apple instead.

2019 1st Round Mock Draft: TTSM Predicts

Image Via NFL.com

Although the upcoming draft may not be as hyped up as last year, it still has many mysteries surrounding the top picks and a plentiful amount of talented players ready to become the next best NFL player. The amount of defensive talent is outstanding, to say the least, but there are also some great offensive options as well. So, let’s get into how we think the draft night will play out.

Pick #1(Cardinals): DE/3-4 OLB Nick Bosa

Personally, I never had and still do not buy that the Cardinals are going to give up on Josh Rosen with selecting Kyler Murray. Therefore, they pick the best player available, which also is a desperate position of need, Nick Bosa. Should be an easy choice for the Cardinals unless they believe defensive tackle is more important.

 

Image result for quinnen williams

Pick #2(49ers): DT/3-4 DE Quinnen Williams

With Dee Ford on one side and Alexander on the other, placing the best defensive tackle in the draft in the middle could possibly give the 49ers the best young defensive line in the league. That is why we believe Quinnen Williams will be heading to San Fransisco in his rookie season.

 

Image result for Josh allen olb

Pick #3(Jets): 3-4 OLB/OLB Josh Allen

The Jets will fail to trade down and go for the best player available. Josh Allen and CJ Mosley will make the Jets linebackers hard to stop and will lay the foundation to potentially becoming a top 5 defense in the league.

Pick #4(Raiders): QB Kyler Murray

In a shock pick, the Raiders will choose a new Quarterback to lead their team into the next decade. Jon Gruden is in love with Kyler Murray and he will convince Mike Mayock that he is the one they want leading the team. This will split the Raiders fan base but might provide the jolt the Raiders desperately need. We will get into what happens to Derek Carr later.

Pick #5(Buccaneers): LB Devin White

Devin White is easily the best middle linebacker in the draft. This is a position the Buccaneers have needed for years and White will likely fall to them. The former LSU linebacker is an explosive player that the Buccaneers desperately need at all positions so they will continue to rebuild with picking the arguably most important defensive position.

 

Image result for dwayne haskins

Pick #6(Redskins via Giants): QB Dwayne Haskins

The Redskins will give up their first picks for the next two seasons while also giving away a second rounder and a third rounder next year. Alex Smith’s career is most likely done and Case Keenum will not win games. Redskins are one of those teams that have Haskins as the number one quarterback on the board so they will have no problem giving up a lot for their future star player. Haskins will be put into a great situation with learning from two veterans. He might not make an impact right away, but in a year or two he has the potential to lead the Redskins back to the playoffs.

Pick #7(Jaguars): TE T.J Hockenson

Nick Foles wants an elite tight end after playing with Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz his whole career. The Jags picking a tight end is essential for their offensive success and Hockenson is the only tight end worth betting on becoming an elite player. Not much thought should go into this pick for the Jags.

Image result for drew lock

Pick #8(Bengals via Lions): QB Drew Lock

The Bengals know the Broncos want Drew Lock, so they give the Lions their first and second this year, and a second next year to shock the fans. Andy Dalton has not got it done with the Bengals and his next job is to mentor Drew Lock. Drew will be put into a great situation with AJ Green, Joe Mixon, and a new ambitious coach.

 

Image result for Cody Ford

Pick #9(Bills): OT/OG Cody Ford

The Bills need to build some sort of foundation of an offensive line for Josh Allen. They already started that with the signing of center Mitch Morse and will continue to do so with picking the best tackle available in the draft. Left tackle is more important to a offenses success than what many think.

 

Image result for christian wilkins

Pick #10(Broncos): DT/NT Christian Wilkins

The Broncos will be shocked that Drew Lock is off the board, so they go to the next best player. Choosing between Wilkins and Ed Oliver, they go with Wilkins to put in between Bradley Chubb and Von Miller. That defensive line will be unstoppable if Wilkins lives up to his potential.

 

Image result for ed oliver

Pick #11(Lions via Bengals): DT Ed Oliver 

Lions get a steal with Ed Oliver and beef up their defensive line. Pairing up with Damon Harrison Senior will give Oliver a great mentor and partner. Also, these two would create a top 3 defensive tackle duo.

 

Image result for jawaan taylor

Pick #12(Packers): OT Jawaan Taylor

Since the best tight end is now off the board, the Packers make sure to protect Aaron Rodgers with this pick. Rodgers has been beaten up the past two seasons and it is mostly due to the inconsistent tackle play. Jawaan Taylor could arguably be the best tackle in the draft in some teams eyes, so the Packers get a built player to hopefully ensure a healthy 2019 season for their former MVP.

 

Image result for rashan gary

Pick #13(Dolphins): DE Rashan Gary

The Dolphins are looking to build their teams with the best players possible. They will fail to find a trade partner to trade down, so they look to get a pass rusher to build around on defense. Gary has fallen draft stock wise, but I believe he still has the potential to be the best defensive end to come out of this draft. If the Dolphins believe the same, they will take Gary to start the rebuild of the defense. Image result for montez sweat

Pick #14(Falcons): DE Montez Sweat

Although Montez Sweat is falling due to his heart condition, I think the Falcons give him a chance. Don’t forget this man had 20 sacks in the last two years and was a for sure top 5 picks before news of his heart condition came out. The Falcons get a steal here and Montez will work hard to prove doubters wrong. Beasley and Sweat would be a dominate young pass rushing duo in the NFC.

 

Image result for Deandre baker

Pick #15(Giants via Redskins): CB Deandre Baker 

The New York Giants will acquire Deandre Baker to repair the absence of Landon Collins. Baker will bring heart and explosive plays to the Giants defense which has been needed ever since their super bowl runs.

 

Image result for greg little

Pick #16(Panthers): OT Greg Little

With Cam Newtons having constant shoulder problems throughout most of last season, the Panthers are almost forced to pick the best tackle available. The Panthers season would end up being a waste if Newton got injured again, so they go with Greg Little with the intentions of giving Cam well-needed protection.

 

Image result for clelin ferrell

Pick #17(Giants via Browns): EDGE Clelin Ferrell

The Giants again beef up their defense while looking to replace Olivier Vernon. Ferrell contains a great amount of strength and speed that he can bring on a nightly basis. He will mean trouble to the young NFC East quarterbacks and could be viewed as a steal in the years to come.

 

Image result for devin bush

Pick #18(Vikings): ILB Devin Bush

The Vikings have the inspiration to create something that is not seen often. That is a Dominant middle linebacker duo. This would bring the Vikings back to a defense that can carry a team. Vikings choose Devin Bush and expect him to make an immediate impact.

 

Image result for jonah williams
Photo Credits: CBS Sports

Pick #19(Titans): OT Jonah Williams

The Titans are simply another team that does not want their injury-riddled quarterback to end their season again. With the recent acquisition of QB Ryan Tannehill(Also injury-riddled) as a backup for Marcus Mariota, the Titans will need all the protection they can get. Although a “boring” pick, Jonah Williams would fit in great with Tennessee.

 

Image result for greedy williams
Photo Credits: Nola.com

Pick #20(Steelers): CB Greedy Williams

Under Mike Tomlin, the Steelers have not been able to find a solid cornerback that will last on their team rather than an average Joe Haden. They have drafted at least one corner in every Tomlin draft and will continue the trend with Greedy Williams. The Steelers need this to work out as nothing on their defense is looking special. They pick Williams to start a young evolution of the Steelers defense.

 

Image result for jerry tillery
Photo Credits: USA Today

Pick #21(Seahawks): DL Jerry Tillery

If the Seahawks want to get back to playing at a super bowl contending level, they will need to repair this defense. A glaring hole in the defense is the defensive tackle position. With Bobby Wagner at linebacker, Frank Clark as a pass rusher, they now need a  solid athlete in the middle. So, they will go with the powerful Jerry Tillery.

 

Image result for dk metcalf

Pick Twenty-Two(Ravens):  WR D.K. Metcalf

The Ravens desperately need some receivers to help Lamar Jackson become a well-developed pocket passer. Metcalf is a big receiver that gives Jackson a person to rely on. Metcalf could possibly be a bust, but if he lives up to expectation he could potentially be the next Calvin Johnson.

 

Image result for garrett bradbury

Pick #23(Texans): OT Garrett Bradbury

The Texans have not been able to take it to the next level under Deshaun Watson due to lack of elite pocket protection. Watson could easily be an MVP type player if he had at the least an average offensive line. So, the Texans will give Watson someone to work with in Garrett Bradbury.

 

Image result for chris lindstrom
Photo Credits: Patriots.com

Pick #24(Raiders via Bears): OG Chris Lindstrom

After acquiring a solid left tackle, Oakland will now need to secure the middle for their rookie quarterback and running back(Pick 27). In order for these rookies to succeed, the Raiders will pick the best guard in the draft in Chris Lindstrom.

 

Image result for brian burns
Photo Credits: 247 Sports

Pick #25(Eagles): DE Brian Burns

The Eagles will get their secondary healthy this upcoming season so that leads them to upgrade the pass rush. Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox are aging but are still very productive. The Eagles will go with Brian Burns to hopefully develop under the veterans and get solid playing time. Burns will most likely start out slow but turn into a solid Pro-Bowl DE.

 

Image result for jachai polite
Photo Credits: NBC Sports

Pick #26(Colts): Edge Rusher Jachai Polite

Going into free agency the Colts knew they needed better edge rushers to compete with the top AFC teams. They now have one side locked down with the veteran Justin Houston and will pick Polite to rotate in on the other side. He will be one of those players that gets more playing time as the season goes on and eventually becomes a full-time starter that makes a decent impact.

 

Image result for josh jacobs

Pick #27(Raiders via Cowboys): RB Josh Jacobs

They have built their offensive line and brought on great receivers during free agency and earlier in the draft for their upcoming rookies. One of those rookies will be Josh Jacobs, who is no doubt the best running back in the draft. Jacobs may split reps with Lynch at first but his age and work ethic will make him the prime running back in Oakland. This is the last piece to the Raiders offensive rebuild.

 

Image result for dre'mont jones

Pick #28(Chargers): DT Dre’Mont Jones

The Chargers have needed a pro bowl defensive tackle to place in the middle of Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram for years much like their AFC West rival Broncos. They go with Dre’Mont Jones to fill that void and hope he can solidify the middle of the line.

 

Image result for johnathan abram
Photo Credits: 247 Sports

Pick #29(Chiefs): S Jonathan Abram

The Chiefs pick Jonathan Abram to pair up with the Honey Badger and fill the void left from the release of Eric Berry. The Chiefs have desperately needed help the past two years at the Safety position so they go with Abram to help out the secondary.

 

Image result for aj brown

Pick #30(Packers via Saints): WR AJ Brown

The Packers need another weapon for an aging Rodgers, so they pick AJ Brown to play opposite of Davante Adams. This would be a fast and dynamic receiving duo that the Packers have missed since their super bowl run.

 

Image result for byron murphy
Photo Credits: 247 Sports

Pick #31(Chiefs via Rams): DB Bryon Murphy

The Chiefs give the Rams both of their second round picks to get the Rams 31st pick. Bret Veach picks another piece to add to the secondary. Murphy is a leader that the Chiefs have needed ever since the veteran defensive overhaul in the 2018 and 2019 offseason.

 

Image result for zach allen

Pick #32(Raiders via Patriots):  DE Zach Allen

In one of the most exciting and mind-blowing draft trades of all time, the Patriots trade their first and third this year and second next year for Derek Carr. The Patriots get Tom Brady’s replacement via trade instead of drafting a quarterback like most thought. The Raiders meanwhile go with Zach Allen to boost the pass rush production. The Raiders ranked last in sacks last year, so picking a pass rusher is a no brainier.
