Kansas City Chiefs are being called one of the 2015 NFL Draft winners

NFL Draft winners and losers is the same thing as the Chiefs draft grades: they're worthless right now. BUT ... we're all going to read them anyway. The Chiefs drafted nine players this weekend and some of their picks are popular with the media. In a day two winners and losers post, SB Nation's Dan Kadar calls the Chiefs draft winners. Finally, after adding Washington's Marcus Peters in the first, John Dorsey added nickelback Steven Nelson with a third-round comp pick, stocking the shelves even further at defensive back. KC now has Peters, Nelson, Sean Smith, Ron Parker, Husain Abdullah,...

For the Kansas City Chiefs, 2015 NFL Draft was about addressing needs

The Kansas City Chiefs 2015 undrafted free agent signings will continue but the Chiefs 2015 draft class is now complete with nine new players added this weekend. My first reaction to the Chiefs draft is that the Chiefs hit on needs. John Dorsey will say it was the best player available. Perhaps it's just a coincidence then that every Chiefs pick was on our list of needs before the draft. From cornerback to inside linebacker to receiver and even tight end and defensive end, the Chiefs hit on need after need. Whether that ends up meaning anything will come bear itself out over the next few...

2016 NFL mock drafts already have Kansas City Chiefs selecting an OT

You can pretty much always write in a left tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs on your NFL mock drafts. That would have been the wrong prediction this year but it could be the right one next year as SB Nation's 2016 NFL mock draft has the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Ohio State OT Taylor Decker. This pick actually does make sense. If you thought receiver was the most obvious need for the Chiefs this year, just wait until OTs Jeff Allen and Donald Stephenson are free agents next year and offensive tackle becomes the most obvious pick of all time. Also by the 2013 draft, Eric Fisher will be...

Mel Kiper's draft grades say Kansas City Chiefs defense got better

The KC Star's Terez Paylor gave the Kansas City Chiefs a C+ on their draft and ESPN's Adam Teicher gave them a thumbs down on the draft. ESPN's Mel Kiper seems to be a little higher on the Chiefs 2015 draft picks than those two. Kiper's draft grade for the Chiefs: B-. Here's what Kiper says he took into account when making these grades: • How much overall talent did a team add, based on board position? • How effectively did they address key personnel voids? • How efficient were they in maneuvering on the draft board? And here's what he said about KC: The Chiefs had Marcus Peters as...

A Scout's Take on the Chiefs' Day Three Selections from The Mothership Chiefs Assistant Director of College Scouting Dom Green on Wilson: "He's big, he's fast and he can run and hit," Green said.

Chiefs had a trade offer to move up in 2nd round of 2015 NFL Draft, per report

NFL Network's Mike Silver was inside the St. Louis Rams draft room on Saturday and produced this piece which is a very cool read. In one part of his piece, Silver talks about the Rams going on the clock with their second round pick, 41st overall, on Friday night. And then he writes the Rams had trade offers, including one from the Chiefs: There was plenty of drama in the war room Friday night, as the Rams -- who had a cluster of offensive linemen stacked in the second-round range and were thus open to trading down -- fielded a fast and furious barrage of trade offers for their...

NFL Draft results: Kansas City Chiefs pick WR Da'Ron Brown in 7th round

With the 233rd pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Northern Illinois WR Da'Ron Brown. His NFL.com profile reads: Outside receiver with limited speed and athleticism who is heavily reliant upon his outstanding hands. Unlikely to be able to be able to find separation on the next level without requisite quickness. This is the Chiefs ninth and final pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Chiefs remaining picks Round 1 (18) No. 18 overall (Washington CB Marcus Peters) Round 2: (17) No. 49 overall (Missouri OL Mitch Morse) Round 3: (16) No. 76 overall (Georgia WR Chris Conley) Round...

NFL Draft results: KC Chiefs select Southern Miss DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches in sixth round

With the 217th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Southern Miss DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches, who is 6'2 and 307 pounds. Defensive line help was one of our needs heading into the 2015 draft. Here's what his NFL.com profile says: Fireplug with a good motor and an ability to find gaps and drive upfield through them. He's missing the size and brute strength necessary to consistently handle himself in phone booth battle so he will have to play in a one-gap, upfield defense. He has the look of a penetrating nose who will have to start his career as a backup. This is the...

NFL Draft 2015: ILB DJ Alexander 'had a good feeling' Kansas City Chiefs would draft him

The Kansas City Chiefs used one of their two fifth round picks in the 2015 NFL Draft on Oregon State LB DJ Alexander, who says he had a good feeling that the Chiefs would draft him. "I had a good feeling," LB DJ Alexander on whether he thought #Chiefs would pick him up. #ChiefsDraft — BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) May 2, 2015 DJ Alexander said Kansas City was one of his favorite visits.

Chiefs draft picks 2015: TE James O'Shaughnessy is KC's second fifth round pick

With the 173rd pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Illinois State TE James O'Shaughnessy. Here is the Chiefs tight end we were looking for. Anthony Fasano was cut this offseason which made this a position folks have been looking to. NFL.com describes him as a basketball tight end: "Basketball" tight end with plus foot quickness, concentration, hands and vertical ability. He can elevate and compete for jump balls while creating space for himself with his quickness. His blocking is a work in progress, but he could end up being a highly productive Day 3 draft pick if a...

Chiefs draft picks 2015: Oregon State LB DJ Alexander is the first of two fifth round picks

With the 172nd pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Oregon State LB DJ Alexander. He is listed as an outside linebacker, which is an area the Chiefs seem to be pretty stacked in entering the 2015 season. Tamba Hali is coming back along with 2014 first round pick Dee Ford. Justin Houston of course is the unsigned franchise player. This is the first of back-to-back fifth round picks for the Chiefs. It's also a compensatory pick which means they could not trade it. It's also the second Oregon State player drafted after CB Steven Nelson went in the fifth round. 2015 NFL...

Ramik Wilson to Chiefs: Reactions from around the Internet

The Kansas City Chiefs go with their second Georgia player of the draft by selecting Ramik Wilson in the fourth round. Wilson is an inside linebacker for the Chiefs, which happens to be one of the positions we thought they would be addressing this year. The overall reaction to Wilson seems to be positive. It's a position the Chiefs needed to address and there are good reports on Wilson. I'll be curious to see where he fits on the current depth chart with Derrick Johnson and Josh Mauga. Here's what the Internet is saying about Ramik Wilson. Chiefs scout Dom Green said Ramik Wilson is "big,...

Chiefs draft results: Georgia ILB Ramik Wilson is the fourth round pick

With the 118th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Georgia ILB Ramik Wilson. Wilson visited with the Chiefs at the NFL Combine so he was on our list of players the Chiefs could be considering. The Chiefs at inside linebacker have Josh Mauga, who just signed a three-year extension, and Derrick Johnson, who is 32 and coming off an Achilles injury. His NFL comparison is Zaviar Gooden, according to this NFL.com profile. Wilson could use more thump in his game. He will occasionally flash explosiveness, but we don't see it enough. Productive over the last two years, with...

The Chiefs have one pick in the fourth, two in the fifth round and one each in the sixth and seventh round.

The Chiefs focused on their secondary in the first three rounds with the selections of Washington CB Marcus Peters and Oregon State CB Steven Nelson. The Chiefs also found a potential center in Mizzou OL Mitch Morse in the second round. The Chiefs finally...

Chiefs 2015 draft: CB Steven Nelson is 'real physical', can play inside or outside

At 5'10, Oregon State CB Steven Nelson is just over the Mendoza line for KC Chiefs GM John Dorsey's height for cornerbacks. Nelson, who was selected 98th overall by the Chiefs on Friday night, said he feels comfortable playing inside as a nickel or outside in the Chiefs secondary. "Physical, real physical," Nelson said when asked to describe his style, via quotes from the Chiefs. "I would definitely say I'm not afraid of anybody because I can play fast. Versatile, I can play any coverage you ask me to. I even have some finesse when it comes down to it. I've been working on my game on the...

Ugh. Sorry about the late post. Words can't describe the hangover I have right now. Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy! Five Things to Know About C Mitch Morse from The Mothership Possibly the best quality in Mitch Morse is his versatility. In the matter of his four seasons at local Missouri, Morse played a variety of roles for the Tigers over the course of his career. In 2011, he played in all 13 games, primarily on the placekicking protection unit. In 2012, he became a starter at center, but then moved out to right tackle as injuries struck the team. In 2013, he continued at...

NFL Draft grades: Kansas City Chiefs are addressing needs in the draft

Let's grade the Kansas City Chiefs draft so far. Yes, it's way too early. No, I don't care. The Kansas City Chiefs are halfway through their 2015 NFL Draft. They started this thing with seven picks and then received four compensatory picks for their 2014 free agent class. Those 11 picks shrunk down to 10 when the Chiefs traded a fifth round pick for G Ben Grubbs earlier this year. From there, the Chiefs used a sixth round pick to trade up and select WR Chris Conley on Friday night. That leaves the Chiefs with four picks so far. SB Nation's Dan Kadar is grading those picks so far as a...
