NFL Draft: 2 Chiefs picks that will shock the Kansas City fan base

NFL Draft: 2 Chiefs picks that will shock the Kansas City fan base

On the The latest episode of Arrowhead Pride Podcast “Draft Room”Talon Graff and I wanted to think outside the box when it came to the Kansas City president’s first few selections in this year’s NFL Draft.

(Listen to the podcast above or by clicking here. It is also Available on Spotify.)

Talon and I picked a prospect that could shock the fan base if they were available and the Chiefs picked them at the end of the first round. Here are the two players we mentioned:

Talon – Nakobi Din

Georgia quarterback Nakobi Dean fits the bill as a potential “off the wall” option in the Chiefs’ first round, given the fact that Brett Fitch has taken a second-round quarterback in each of the last two drafts (Willie Jay, 2020 Pick 63 | Nick Bolton, 2021). Pick 58).

Jay and Bolton enter 2022 as key starters in Steve Spagnolo’s 4-3 defense. In the wake of Anthony Hitchens’ departure, Kansas City has signed a pair of linebackers Elijah Lee and Jermaine Carter, but drafting Dean will add more talent and depth to the group. Dean is a petite supportive at 5ft 11 and weighs just under 230lbs, but he is a rare athlete for the job.

He would have fit in with the sub-package cover backer we’ve seen Ben Neiman deal with during his tenure. Dean offers value elsewhere with his tenacity and gap control, but he will see immediate action in combinations of passes.

Given the amount of time chiefs spend on base defense, would the front office actually consider spending one of their first on a cover back? We have less than a month before Draft Day, so it’s time to get creative.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FEB 02 Practice Reese's Senior Bowl

A proper Northern Iowa intervention would fit right in with the ugliness the Chiefs’ offensive line room has developed over the past year.

Penning stood out at the games and at the Senior Bowl because of how he finished the blocks – he did so with some bullying-like energy and extracurricular pushes. That’s what caught his eye, but it’s also a potential first-round pick due to the speed of his feet and how natural he is. That, combined with the raw power he’s played with, was tempting enough to be constantly ridiculed in his first 32 picks all this season.

It would take him to move beyond what is currently estimated to be a potential choice of chiefs, but that is not entirely out of the question; Not only is the prospect of a small school offensive line, there is a good selection of offensive tackles to choose from at the top of this year’s class. Someone is going to have to be the weird guy out there and slip in later than expected.

Suppose he is close to the chiefs’ choices. In that case, they could very well consider getting a potentially correct starting tackle with a very high ceiling and the increased physicality they now seem to covet from their offensive line.
