MHR Community Mock Draft--Pick #3

New, comments
Just set him to auto-sack.

From GM Papigrande: The Chiefs have needs all over, and I could see them selecting a top O-lineman here to help out new QB Matt Cassel. However, the Chiefs were terrible against the pass on defense last year, and they showed an epic inability to get to the quarterback. So, I say take the top pass rusher in this year's draft, even if Mel Kiper's hair says he is a reach in the top 5. Orakpo finished with 11.5 sacks as a senior at Texas last year, and the Chiefs finished with 10 (!!!!) as a TEAM last year. Orakpo would fit in nicely as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense to which the Chiefs are reportedly switching.

*****

Commish's Thoughts: I really like this pick. The Chiefs' pass rush was epically bad last year, and they have been very low key in free agency, expecting to get their fix from the draft They also put pressure on the rest of the first round with this pick, since now two of the top OLBs are off of the board. Team's hoping to address their outside rush will have to do it sooner than later now, which should free up some later targets for the Chiefs. All in all a solid move.

ON THE CLOCK

Seattle Seahawks are up next. Denver Native is behind the eight ball a little bit, since the loss of Julian Peterson really had them in the market for the two OLBs that are already gone. Does he continue the run on rush end/OLB prospects or will he have a surprise in store for us?

The deadline for this pick is 3PM MST, March 22nd. As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid. To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
