I got to go with Gil on this. I was a big Poe over Berry guy. Assuming you can only keep one. But I don't think that Poe's back is something you can bank on.

I will agree Berry is not a top FS, but he is the best SS in the league. Run support, manning up on TEs and defending 5-15 yard passes, he is the best. With all my doubts, this is the second year in a row he has owned the 15 yards from scrimmage.

I could see the Chiefs getting rid of Maclin if he can't stay healthy and produce for this playoff run.

Maclin saved the Chiefs season last year.  No reason to think he won't be able to do it again.  He was in for a lot of plays last night but wasn't a target often.  Probably, he is going to take a little while to be at top speed.

Bullshit

He wasn't at the time that was posted, but has made a case for himself later on in the season.

 

It will depend how much exactly what he wants.  The Chiefs simply can't afford to pay him like an elite CB, if that's what he's seeking...or should they.

Re-sign:

S  Eric Berry (4 years/42 mil; 30 mil guaranteed)

P  Dustin Colquitt (3yrs/9 mil) Colquitt gets an extra year on his deal while agreeing to reduce his salary for the next 2.

 

Terminate option:

QB  Nick Foles

 

Paycut:

QB  Alex Smith (Reduces base salary by 5 million to fend off any chance of Foles being kept over him)

 

Signed:

K  Cairos Santos

WR Albert Wilson

S  Dan Sorensen

LS  James Winchester

 

Release:

RB  Jamaal Charles

WR D'Anthony Thomas

OL  Jah Reid

 

FA:

S Matt Elam (2yr/2.5m)

ILB  Manti Te'o (1yr/1.3m)

 

Retire:

LB  Tamba Hali (Chiefs let him retain half of remaining bonus; gain 4 mil cap credit after dead $$$)

 

A very quiet FA period for the Chiefs this year.  The biggest moves will be re-signing Berry for a market appropriate deal and letting Dontari Poe walk. 

 

The Chiefs would stand to gain 30 million in cap space, by making the appropriate moves before the Berry signing.  Allocate 13 in space for Berry's new deal, 5 million to retain others and another 6 for rookies with an additional 2.5 for FA pickups.  They will have around 5 million in cap space after all moves are made, which should be enough to maybe extend a player during the season or add some vets.

 

Draft:

1.  Zach Cunningham, ILB  Vanderbilt

 

Right now I project the Chiefs to be right in range to tab him.  If they go further than I expect in the playoffs (WildCard), than they will need to trade up for him and should.  3 down Inside backer that can cover and be physical.  DJ probably isn't playing at least the first half of 2017, and is probably about finished.  Cunningham should be a long-term player.

 

2.  Davis Webb, QB  California

 

Good size, experienced and can make every throw.  Will drop further than he should, as teams will get cold feet over Jared Goff struggling this year. 

 

He'll get a lot of Jared Goff comparisons, but Goff wishes he had his arm.  Webb is closer to Aaron Rodgers as a passer.  Will need to sit at least a year, which is fine.  The Chiefs don't need a Day 1 starter and Andy would never rookie unless he had to.

 

Bray slides in as the #2 QB for now and Webb is the 3rd. 

 

3.1.  Damore'ea Stringfellow, WR  Ole Miss

 

The Chiefs were reportedly heavy on trying to get his teammate, Treadwell, in last years draft.  They are both similar players.  Strong, physical WR that will make the tough catch and power through to move the chains.  Will slide due to off field issues, but Reid and Dorsey have shown that they will risk it.

 

3.2.  Hunter Dimick, DE/OLB  Utah

 

The Chiefs could have a big dilemma.  Tamba might be done after January and Houston or Ford may not excel well in Hali's Elephant role.  Enter Dimick, who is a Hali type of guy.

 

4.  Lowell Lotulelei, NT  Utah

 

John Dorsey saw first hand what injuries can do to a promising NT when he was in GB and they had BJ Raji.  I think the Chiefs will try to get him to stay a bit longer on a one year prove it contract, to see how the back responds, but too many teams with cash to burn.  Dontari Poe will be leaving in March and it's the right move.

 

Lotulelei is your proto-type lane clogging Nose.  Right range for him.

 

5.1.  De'Veon Smith, RB  Michigan

 

Chiefs add some talent at RB. 

 

5.2  Cole Hikutini, TE  Louisville

 

Chiefs could use another big play, redzone target.  TE depth beyond Kelce is butt.

 

6.1.  If you're going to tamper with a FA, tell them to shut up and make it not obvious.

 

6.2.  Jon Heck, OL  North Carolina

 

Son of coach Andy Heck.  Can play tackle and Guard and allows them to release a bum lineman.

 

6.3.  Josh Augusta, DL  Missouri

 

A big fatty to add depth to the DL.

 

7.  Elijah Mcguire, RB, Louisiana-Lafayette

 

West needs some real competition.

I really like Cunningham.  Have him as the pick in a mock I have been working on.  Although, I would be surprised if Dorsey uses a one on an ILB.

I'm with you on Davis Webb. I would even use our 1st rounder on him to make sure we get him. Or even do what we did last year and move in to the top of the second round to take him while picking up extra picks. 

 

I also really like the devonte smith pick too. a true big power back.

Hard to say. It will really depend where the Chiefs are picking.

I think Foster goes before him, so it will also depend where he goes.

The Chiefs might have to move up and they should, if that's what it takes.

Pre-draft workouts will dictate a lot for Webb.

If the Chiefs are going to keep Foles they need to sit Alex Smith and play Foles now.

Foles is nothing more than a poker chip in a staredown.

Alex Smith is not going to chance having to sign with a turd like the Bears or Jets.

I had us taking Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida in the first but now Walter has him 6th overall. I guess the secret is out LOL. Wish we could get him.

https://walterfootba...m/draft2017.php

I really like Desean Watson. He is clutch and a good leader. I also think Reid would like him and he fits our offense perfectly. I have to admit I haven't watched film on him but watched him live a lot. I think he could be the pick.

I like Watson, but I think there are better options on Friday.

Webb and Mahomes are higher on my board. I'm tired of seeing QB's that are lacking in arm talent.
