Chiefs Day Two Draft Preview

From the onset of the draft, the Chiefs had anticipated that they would select one of the top five wide receivers. But picking 30th carries with it some pitfalls. Today the Chiefs hope to find some diamonds in the rough.

As Day two begins the Chiefs hope to find another Scott Fujita or Dante Hall both steals in the fifth round in their respective drafts. Last year they stole defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson in the sixth and found right tackle Brett Williams in the fourth round.

The Chiefs enter day two, they have specific needs at quarterback, safety, cornerback and offensive line. They might also look for a kicker today. Several will be on the board for the Chiefs. Most notably Northern Illinois's Steve Azar and Chris Snyder from Montana.

On the offensive line they might look to the University of Kansas Adrian Jones. He was a stuff performer at the NFL combines and teams like his potential. The Chiefs indicated last night that they had an offensive tackle they were eying in the early part of the draft on Sunday.

One player who is shockingly on the board is Cornerback Willie Poole of USC. He's slide has been puzzling but teams are shying away from him because many don't feel he has the intangibles to be successful in the NFL. Another player still available is Texas cornerback Nathan Vasher. He's also been a mystery that he fell into the second day.

Of the quarterbacks still available only two appear to have serious potential to be future NFL starters. Washington's Cody Picket and Louisiana Tech's Luke McCown both appear as possibilities for the Chiefs.

If the Chiefs still want a quality wide receiver, they could snag Virginia Tech standout Ernest Wilford who has fallen to the second day. Another possibility is Jerricho Cotchery of North Carolina State. He could in fact be the sleeper pick of this draft.
