Kansas City Chiefs Final Draft Report Card

With Albert, Cottam, Dorsey, Carr and Flowers all in starting roles and Richardson, Charles, Johnston and Morgan as contributing reserve, the Chiefs had their best player draft in twenty years. And now almost a year to the date, nearly the entire scouting staff has been dismantled.

p> The Chiefs hit the tri-fecta by making Tyson Jackson their third consecutive number one selection out of LSU. Over his career Jackson has been at best a steady performer. He lacks edge rush skills, has a tendency to get his pads up and in my opinion doesn't consistently dominate at the point of attack. Time will tell, but from what I saw he is far from a franchise type player. McGee is a talented player, but looked out of his element. I really liked the way he played in 2007 as a three technique and in particular his ability to rush the passer. I didn't think his motor always ran on high, but if he can get his game together, he has a real chance of becoming a steady, productive, inside player. Donald Washington is an impressive looking individual with athletic ability, but I was really disappointed with his lack of playing consistency. I didn't think he played with a lot of confidence and based on my exposure, I wouldn't even consider him to be a fulltime regular. Brown is a giant of a man, but I didn't he was a particularly good athlete and not a knee bender. He is not quick and struggled with direction change. Beyond this point, I liked Lawrence' speed and Succop's leg strength, particularly on kickoffs.
