  1. 2020 Mock Drafts - Way too early, but let's go!

    It may be my lack of Knowledge .. but .. even on a run play, I have to account for a big Body suddenly showing up in the back field - it alters the equation. Even if he doesn't get the tackle .. he takes away one half of the field where the runner may go to - unless the runner cuts back and goes that way nevertheless trying to get to the edge. A guy in the backfield alters the play .. be it pass or run … and takes it off the script.
  2. Actually haven't thought about him in that role .. was going to discuss him in the TE section. But a good catch here!

    why do you think so? Cap is not a reason. Jones may be the second most disruptive interior lineman to Aaron Donald only. You don't let that kind of talent walk.

    This was my mock which (I think) kicked off the Kelce debate ...

    Quite honestly - I actually don't care who the Chiefs draft in the first round … as long as they draft him at #32.

    Kelce is under contract for two more years. So, if you draft a guy NOW .. in two years' time you'll have options whether to give him a new (pricey) contract, go with the younger one, or start from scratch. If you bring in his (potential) replacement only then .. you'll have to chose between the pricey (and potentially declining) and the unknown.
  7. An Overview: This unit has been a mixed bag of bones. After the untimely departure of Kareem Hunt it has been in constant flux. A bunch of mid-level players, a big name - Little output offseason signing, a highly touted rookie, but Overall: what's the identity of a running back unit that surrenders the title of the best runner to their quarterback for two post-season games? Where a mid-season signing comes in and can take over without any problem? Can you blame the OL? The play calling? Granted, the Chiefs are not a team built around the run. Nope, this unit as of now is not fit for the job. Having two RBs on the practice squad may be an indication the brass has a similar feeling. The Players: Both Williamses will return for the final year of their current contract. Damien is not shy, he gives his all. But he lacks elusiveness and vision. He's not a guy opposing defenses will even game plan for. Darrell is supposed to be the faster one, and better in the passing game. That's important for the Chiefs' style of the game - but did anyone even notice he's on IR right now? On other teams both players would be replacement level. Darwin Thompson some consider to be the saviour. Well, Bieniemy doesn't buy that for now. He's fast, he's more elusive than the others, but he also is small. He will never be the 8" HE shell ripping through stout defenses. And his small frame may limit him in pass protection as well. The other guys, like Marcus Marshall (signed to a futures contract already) or practice squad players Elijah McGuire and Mike Weber are unknowns to me. I got a feeling that the Weber signing was considered a good one, so we will see. I usually don't discuss players not under contract in These Posts, but here I'll make an exception: LeSean McCoy is done. He didn't do anything in regular season, and towards the end, when a narrative "let's manage his snaps, we Need him for the post-season" was thrown around he did even less. Now in post-season: Nada. Nothing. Fare well .. have a nice ride into the sunset. A wasted roster spot throughout the year. But that may be Big Red's way to say "Thank You". Spencer Ware came in on short notice when injury struck .. and he didn't miss a beat. I think it's close naming him the best RB on the Team this year. Too bad he suffered a Season ending injury. I firmly believe he could really have helped in post-Season beyond what Wiliams did. Finally: Anthony Sherman. The Sausage. His playing time on offense diminished with the limted role the run game has right now. So he's making his money on Special Teams. He played on a Minimum Veteran contract this year - and if he's willing to do that again, he'll be back. The Outlook: Something needs to be done here. The Chiefs, in my opinion, are a pretty one-dimensional offense. Well, they use the short pass game and screens as a running game replacement. But when push comes to shove, a true running game is different. Forcing opposing teams to REALLY respect the run, as they did with Hunt around, would add so much more to the Chiefs offense and the things Mahomes could do. For next season I'd expect the current crew (sans McCoy) to be back in training camp. And I think they'll give Ware another shot. After that - fresh blood is needed. So bring in a whole bunch of guys and let's find the next human joystick. During the draft I firmly believe the Chiefs will draft someone anywhere between the 3rd and 5th round. Who'll make it in the end: We will see. My prediction: at max one of the Williamses.

    Not sure where you have the 3rd forth round pick from … Chiefs won't get a comp pick this year
  14. 9 months without complications is what I heard. He may not be 100% though initially. But then you have Sorensen and possibly Fuller. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2020/1/3/21048105/injury-analysis-making-sense-of-juan-thornhills-acl-tear-and-a-potential-timetable-for-return Update: https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2020/1/14/21066077/juan-thornhill-posts-that-surgery-went-well
