Chiefs 2018 Draft
So the Chiefs have the following draft picks:
2.22 [54 overall]
This means that they have 5 picks in the top 125, which should mean that they will get several significant contributors. The chiefs have routinely found great talent in the third round. To be a good draft, I expect that they will need to find at least 3 significant contributors with their top 5 picks for this draft to be successful.
The Chiefs do not have a lot of room for error, so far this draft seems to be heavy in linebacker talent. If they address safety, I’d expect it to be with one of their first two picks and I’d expect Secondary and defensive line to be targets with their first few picks. Linebackers and O Line would follow and be addressed with later picks. This is Veach’s first draft so we don’t know what to expect, but he’ll need a successful draft or it could cause the Chiefs to encounter a 1 to 2 year set back.
Initially I would be happy if they addressed the offensive guard spot and the defensive line in this draft leaving likely weaknesses at safety and offensive line depth.
