NFL Draft: 2 Chiefs Picks That Will Wow Kansas City’s Fanbase -2022

About him The last episode of arrowhead pride “Draft Room” PodcastTalon Graff and I wanted to think outside the box when it came to the Kansas City president’s first picks 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 who could surprise the fan base if he were available and the Chiefs took him late in the first round. Here are the two players we mentioned:

Claw – Nakobi Din

Georgia quarterback Nakobi Dean fits the bill as a potential “off the wall” option in the Chiefs’ first round, given that Brett Fitch has picked 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 starting point guards 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 small prop at 5-foot-11 and weighs just under 230 pounds, but he’s a rare athlete for the job.

He would have fit into the coverage sub-package we’ve seen Ben Neiman deal with during his tenure. Dean offers value elsewhere with his tenacity and gap control, but he’ll see immediate action on passing combinations.

Given the amount of time bosses spend defending the base, would the front office really consider spending one of their firsts on a cover? We have less than a month before Draft Day, so it’s time to get creative.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FEBRUARY 02 Reese's Senior Bowl Practice

A proper intervention from northern Iowa would fit right in with the ugliness that has developed on the Chiefs’ offensive line over the past year.

Penning stood out in games and at the Senior Bowl for the way he finished blocks: He did it with an energy akin to extracurricular bullying and shoving. That’s what caught his attention, but he’s also a potential first-round pick because of his foot speed and how natural he is. That, combined with the raw power he’s played with, was tempting enough to be constantly ridiculed in his top 32 picks this entire season.

It would take him beyond what is currently estimated to be a potential boss pick, but that’s not entirely out of the question; It’s not just the prospect of a small-school offensive line, there’s a good selection of offensive tackles to choose from at the top of this year’s class. Someone will have to be the weird guy and sneak in later than expected.

Let’s say it’s close to the boss elections. In that case, they might as 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.
