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

BJ Kissel

@ChiefsReporter

“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.

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.

Top 10 Greatest Saints To Ever Play

Johnathon Vilma, Pat Swilling, Mark Ingram. All dominate Saints players yet they didn’t make the cut for my personal top 10 Saints players. Here is my top 10 Saints players.

Number 10: DE Will Smith

Super Bowl winning DE Will Smith was murdered tragically April 9th, 2016. Will Smith’s greatest play, in my opinion, was Tracy Porter’s game-sealing interception as he laid a key block on Peyton Manning.

Number 9: QB Archie Manning

Although it was another era when Saints fans typically wore paper bags over their heads, there was a shining star at QB by the name of Archie Manning. He gave the Saints hope yet we were typically considered the “laughing stock of the league.”

Number 8: WR Joe Horn

WR Joe Horn was not only a great receiver, he was a hilarious personality to have around New Orleans. He’s iconically know for his cell phone celebration after a touchdown.

Number 7: LB Sam Mills

LB Sam Mills passed away August 3rd, 2005 after a battle with colon cancer. Mills was inducted into the Saints and Panthers Hall of Fame. Mills is the inspiration behind the Panthers’ slogan “Keep Pounding.” He was in “Dome Patrol.” The “Dome Patrol” was a nickname for the Saints linebacking corp.

Number 6: OL Willie Roaf

OT Willie Roaf, aka “Nasty,” played for the Saints and Chiefs for thirteen seasons. He was such an exceptional tackle, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2012.

Number 5: RB Deuce McAllister

DEUCEEEEE!!! Deuce McAllister is the greatest running back in Saints history. He was drafted out of Ole Miss in the first round and spent eight seasons with the Saints.

Number 4: WR Marques Colston

WR Marques Colston, the greatest WR to never make a Pro Bowl. After drafted in the seventh round out of Hofstra, he was never looked at tremendously. He has just under 10,000 career yards (9,759) and 72 touchdowns.

Number 3: K Morten Anderson

K Morten Andersen is one of the greatest kickers ever after just being passed by ageless K Adam Vinatieri. Andersen ended his career with 2,544 points. He was inducted into the 2017 Hall of Fame class.

Number 2: LB Rickey Jackson

HOF LB Rickey Jackson was inducted into the 2010 class. Jackson was the leader of the “Dome Patrol.” The “Dome Patrol” consisted of Rickey Jackson, Sam Mills, Vaughn Johnson and Pat Swilling.

Number 1: QB Drew Brees

Although this may be obvious, I placed Brees as the greatest Saint ever because after Hurricane Katrina, the Saints, and quite frankly, the whole city of New Orleans was in desperate need of a hero. The Saints were rumored to be relocated to San Antonio if NOLA couldn’t recover. Within a few years of being signed, Brees brought a Lombardi to NOLA.

Jayrone Elliott: Saints Best AAF Prospect

Former San Antonio Commanders’ LB/DE Jayrone Elliott would add great depth to the Saints’ defensive line and linebackers.

Elliott, who led the AAF in sacks with 7.5 in just 8 games, was a Packers linebacker a few years back and already spent time in New Orleans during the preseason.

With the Saints losing DT Sheldon Rankins for the beginning of the season due to a torn achilles and the lack of depth at the linebacker position for us, Jayrone Elliott could supply us with “breathing room” per se. Elliot is a great pass rusher and for him to learn with one of the game’s best in Cam Jordan can be very beneficial for him.

The 6’3″, 255lbs linebacker nearly missed the 53-man roster cut off and had to sign with the AAF in the meantime.


Fun Fact: LB Jayrone Elliott, CB Marshon Lattimore, WR Ted Ginn Jr, and ST/CB Justin Hardee all attended Glenville High School in Cleveland, OH.

The Chiefs Trade For Emmanuel Ogbah

We got a real trade on April Fools day. Yes the Chiefs traded Eric Murray to the Browns in exchange for Emmanuel Ogbah. Both players are on rookie contracts and no draft picks were involved. The Brown’s were looking to trade Ogbah all off season after their acquisition of Olivier Vernon and the drive to trade him only grew when he skipped the first off season program. There are no real negatives here as both teams got a position of need at a cheap price. So lets look at how this effects each team.

The Chiefs: Eric Murray was a potential cut candidate for the Chiefs because of their depth at safety. Daniel Sorenson, Amarni Watts, Jordan Lucas, and Tyrann Mathieu would have pushed Murray out of any playing time. So they gave up a backup for a staring defensive lineman in Emmanuel Ogbah. Ogbah will help the Chiefs transition into a new defense. He is a solid run stopper and adds a few sacks a year. He is nothing special but will pair up well with Chris Jones and Alex Okafor well. Solid move by general manager, Brett Veach, and makes the Chief’s draft need of corner back more clear.

The Browns: The Browns were in need of a safety the moment they sent Jabrill Peppers to the Giants. Eric Murray probably will not start for the Browns, but he will be a good rotational player that can make plays at times. John Dorsey drafted Murray when he was with the Chiefs, so maybe John knows how get Murray to his full potential. Getting rid of Ogbah needed to happen as Myles Garret and Olivier Vernon will take up the most playing time. Also, the Browns would have gotten rid of him next year once his contract was up because he would have asked for big money and some team would have over paid. Overall, another good trade by the Brown’s new aggressive general manager.

 

Eric Berry: A True Chiefs Legend

Eric Berry was released after 9 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs on March 13th, 2019. This move saves around $9.5 million for the Chiefs and around $3 million in dead cap money. It also adds another elite safety to a Historically great safety free agency class. Eric will have no trouble getting a deal done in the coming weeks.

What does this mean for the Chiefs?

The Chiefs drafted Berry in 2010 with the 5th overall pick and he immediately made an impact with a pro bowl rookie season(when they actually meant something). 4 years later after a Thursday night football game in Oakland, Berry felt a pain in his chest. The results came back as lymphoma. This was extremely crushing for not only the team and fans, but for everyone around the NFL. No one cares about football anymore, everyone just wanted to make sure Berry was okay. All during his recovery he still worked out and eventually made his way back to the Chiefs by training camp. He came back even better with another all-pro season and AP Comeback Player of the Year Award. After yet another all-pro season in 2016, the Chiefs gave him a 6 year deal to make sure they had the best safety in the league on their team until the end of his career. Then came opening night against the Patriots. The Chiefs won, but this game is more known now as the start of the end for Eric Berry’s time in KC. He tore his Achilles late in the game and was out for the rest of the season.

Fast forward to the preseason, and we all start hearing about Berry having problems with his heel again. This would later come out as a heel deformity. Berry wouldn’t make his return to the Chiefs until a week 15 matchup against the Chargers. Chiefs fans thought he was the answer for the 31st ranked defense, but the very next week he tweaked his heel again against the Seahawks and was out till the championship game. He looked relatively back to normal in those 3 games, but the Chiefs decided to move on from the veteran safety. Many disagree with this move, including myself, but the Chiefs will have to move on to find a younger safety probably in this year’s draft. Eric Berry will always be a hero in Kansas City, it’s just too bad the Kansas City Chiefs couldn’t give him another chance.

What does this mean for other NFL teams?

It depends if you believe he will come back at 100%. Personally, I do, because if you can come back from cancer you can come back from anything the way I see it. If he does, it will be an all-pro safety available for any team to pick him up. Berry is only 29, so team would probably look to give him around a 3-year deal.
