The Chiefs two 1st rounders are a beautiful combination of value and need. CB McDuffie was my #1 CB in this class because of his ability to do everything well and his potential to be a tone setter type leader for a defense.

DE Karlaftis may not be a star as a pro but he projects as a reliable contributor in the mold of a Brandon Graham or Olivier Vernon. WR Moore is a slot chain mover that fills a hole that the other receivers on the team aren't equipped for.

S Cook in the 2nd was rich imo and a questionable need. DT Travis Jones was ready and willing there, albeit many teams passed. LB Chenal is a good rugged depth guy that could develop into more. CB's Williams, Watson and Johnson are all off the radar types that will get coached up in the system. Williams has the most upside and looked formidable at senior week practices.

OL Kinnard's a solid later round get..but he's not an OT. RB Pacheco is a Jersey rugged guy that tested better than he plays but carries solid upside. And i was a fan of both RB's Fleet-Davis and Ealy as prospects and wouldn't be surprised if either outplays their undrafted status. But UDFA LB Rose is a candidate for steal of the draft assuming he's free of flags.

Securing their freshly found franchise QB is still the priority and GM Telesco's pick OL Zion Johnson projects as a long term starting fixture on the interior. S Woods is a blazing playmaker and could eventually take Adderley's spot.

RB Spiller is one of my favorite unheralded guys in this class. He's a power runner that can catch and an especially good scheme fit. Mid round DT Ogbonnia is nearly a prototype 5 technique and could push for snaps right away.

OL Salyer is a potential steal as a mid rounder and could surprise out at RT from the gate. Safeties Taylor and Leonard are special teams and practice squad guys. FB/HB Horvath was another one of my favorite unheralded guys in this class. He's a Peyton Hillis/Kyle Juszczyk clone that ought to outplay his draft slot.

UDFA RB Brown is a Philly guy with grit and burst that could earn a spot.

HC McDaniels and GM Ziegler's plan to improve the running game by adding an interior offensive lineman and RB with their first two picks is the right strategy imo, ...I'm just not sure they settled on the right players. OL Parhem is ostensibly in the mold of the Pat's Shaq Mason but I think he's a lesser version. RB White has grit and speed but he's got shaky vision, patience and isn't hard to bring down.

DT Farrell's a boom/bust plugger. DT Butler is an active interior guy with some flash but overall especially nondescript and projects as back up. I thought OG Mumford was one of the more overrated guys in this class. He's got power and technique to develop but he's far from a plug and play type.

Late round stab RB Brown has some flash and could end up showing more than White. And I've been a fan of UDFA S Pola-Mao and think he could earn a spot.

After snatching edge Gregory from the Cowboys to pair with Chubb and a promising Micheal Cooper out of last year's draft, the Broncos first draft pick of edge Bonitto........ is a big meh. Bonitto is a boom/bust project. He's got adequate athletic ability but he's got play strength and technique issues that don't just go away.

TE Dulcich is a talent and should get an opportunity to play straight away. DE Uwazurike is a solid depth pick and should eventually start down the road. CB Mathis is a decent talent but felt like a reach, nevertheless, early on day 3. S Turner-Yell feels like a depth guy that could end up always buried on the depth chart. WR Washington's a diminutive speed specialist and solid mid round get.

OG Wattenburg, DT Henningsen and CB Hicks all appear like decent late round practice squad guys. I thought UDFA Mauga flashed here and there for USC. And QB Barriere is an interesting back up for Wilson if he can soak up any of the work ethic and preparation. of the (arguable) HOF'er.
