Have to keep trying to hit on a QB...unless we like only coming close to a championship for half a century.

Can you define what you're referring to as the elephant rusher? Chiefs don't usually play an elephant position ala Pete Carroll but rather just WOLB and SOLB. The SOLB would be where hali and Ford are so I assume that's what we are referring to. Most times the elephant is synonymous with the Leo position Carroll uses. Usually it's on the weakside though is it not?

Either way I don't see how qualls is remotely qualified to play any olb position in a 34.

It wouldn't hurt to get a NT, but yeah an Elephant rusher is a guy that moves around a lot depending on the circumstance and will sometimes be an inside rusher and/or hand in the dirt guy.

The difference between leo and elephants is defensive alignment, elephant rushers are usually bigger and leo's are basically strictly edge rushers either standing or hand in ground. Elephants sometimes are used to interior rushing.

The Chiefs got away from that because Tamba is worn down and they don't have another guy that can do it, but I'd bwt Sutton would givw up his right buttcheek to have another.

I don't think he would fill that role (were talking about Foster, yes?), but that would be one heck of a DJ replacement.

I wouldn't blame the Chiefs if they moved up to get him if he slipped out of the top 15.

As for filling the Elephant role, i like the possibility with Walker out Florida St and Hunter Dimick as a late round flier.

There was a guy on am810 today that said that he didn't think the Chiefs would draft a QB in round #1, he thought the Chiefs would go with either a CB or ILB and that the pick would come from either the Washington Huskies or the Florida Gators and yes he did mention the name Kevin King because he can play both CB and S. ;)

 

 

CBSSportsline.com now has CB Kevin King ranked at #22, so chances are he will be taken by the Raiders or Seahawks.

I just don't see CB being the pick unless a top tier one slides. I can't think of one good reason to spend the top pick on a #2 CB in a balls deep class.

The top needs are QB and ILB. They will get one of those.

Mully and I picked Tamba Hali a decade ago. Since that time I am 0 for 11 although only missed by one on Paxton Lynch last year

I saw a mock draft today that had the Chiefs taking QB Davis Webb in the 1st round.

If Watson and Lynch are both out of reach in the first, it would be surprising for the Chiefs to go after a second tier QB at #27.  Once the top four are gone, they might just wait for day two and take a Peterman type.  The team has a lot of trading power in this draft with all their choices.

Two boards; CBS and NFL Network have us taking Mahomes at 27. I'm leaning towards him as being the future of this organization.
