Although the Chiefs enter the second day of the draft without a fourth round pick, there will be several undervalued players available in the final three rounds. Here are a few of the players that might still be there for the Chiefs at the 154th pick.
OG Max Jean-Gilles
Jean-Gilles is a massive guard out of the SEC who's surprisingly agile for a man his size. He looks good on film and performed exceptionally well at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine. It is surprising to see him fall this far.
DT Gabe Watson
Athletically, Watson is the best player left on the board. He's an un-blockable force when he chooses to be. Watson can implode the middle of an offense at will. At the Senior Bowl he dominated the best crop of interior offensive linemen I've seen in years.
Unfortunately, when you turn on the tape, Watson's play is spotty at best. He takes far too many plays off and is glaringly unmotivated. With that being said it might take a coach like Herm Edwards to break through to him. At this point in the draft Watson would be a low risk/high reward player and is definitely worth taking a look at.
DT Kyle Williams
Williams is a highly underrated player who fits the same mold as the defensive players that Kansas City drafted in the first two rounds. He's a relentless, blue-collar type of player who doesn't get enough credit for his play-making ability. When you study him on film he's probably the most fundamentally sound defensive lineman in the draft.
Other defensive tackles that carry a good second day value are Jonathan Lewis of Virginia Tech and DT Jesse Mahelona of Tennessee.
FS Ko Simpson
Simpson is a well-rounded safety that shares many similarities to Ohio State's Donte Whitner. Although Simpson lacks Whitner's level of experience, his athleticism and tenacity is similar.
As a run-stopper, Simpson is fearless and ferocious. He excels in playing close to the line of scrimmage and can explode downhill like a linebacker. Known as a big hitter, Simpson takes a lot of pride in leveling his opponents. He has the type of attitude and toughness you typically see in elite players. Simpson is already a powerful player and still has room to add more muscle to his frame.
As the Chiefs look to the future, Simpson might be the perfect safety to pair with Bernard Pollard.
WR Demetrius Williams
The Chiefs missed out on a wide receiver in the first three rounds and this is a position where they clearly need to add some depth. Remarkably, one of the top-rated wide receivers is still available in Demetrius Williams.
Williams has a great combination of height and speed that separates him from the other receivers in his class. He does a nice job of catching the ball away from his body and has the body control to adjust to bad throws. On film, he flashes great potential as a professional football player and it's surprising to see him out there this late in the draft.
OT Jonathan Scott
Anyone who pays attention to Big Twelve football should know who Jonathan Scott is. As a four year starter, Scott was the most dominant offensive tackle in his conference over the past two seasons. His ability to dominate at the tackle position was a driving force for the Texas Longhorns' offense.
Scott turned in a below-average performance at the Senior Bowl and this could be the reason why he's fallen so far down the draft board. Maybe the scouts need to re-evaluate his game film because Scott is better than all but three of the offensive tackles that have been taken in front of him.
Unlike some of the other left tackles in this draft, Scott has the ability to lower his pads and clear out defenders in the running game. He also has the athleticism to reach the second level of the defense. With quick feet and an 82-inch wingspan, he possesses all of the measurables you look for in a prospective left tackle at the NFL level.
FS Pat Watkins
Before the draft Watkins carried a second round grade on the Warpaint Illustrated value board. Watkins' height makes him a very desirable prospect for teams that have to match up with one of the NFL's premier tight ends. You would think he'd be a hot commodity in the AFC West, a division that features Randy Moss, Antonio Gates, Jerry Porter and Tony Gonzalez.
