Chiefs Draft Notes: their 9 choices now makes it 24 selections under Pioli/Haley in three drafts. This year it’s 5 on defense and 4 on offense. In three years it’s 11 offensive draft choices, 12 defensive draft picks and one for special teams … There were seven conferences represented among the 9 players this year, with the ACC and SEC getting two draft choices each .. Among those 24 picks, there are 11 conferences represented, with 6 from the FBS and 5 from the FCS. The most  popular conferences for Pioli/Haley are the Southeastern (8) and the Big 10 (5) … in three drafts with 24 players they’ve not taken a player who’s team wasn’t part of NCAA Division 1.

    I think it will be very interesting to see if Shane Bannon can make the final 53. Iam rooting for him because at 265 pounds it reminds me a little of Jerome Bettis. He was really fun to watch. Iam not saying he is a Jerome Bettis. Only that he weighs about the same as him. And 265 pound fullbacks are always fun to watch.

    I sure hope we have a training camp. It would be great to see these guys on the field and measure how they react to better strength training and coaching.

    It is hard to believe that our pass offense and pass defense won’t be better. That just jumps out from this draft.

    I hate to be negative on a player, but by my eyes, Donald Washington appears to be one of the worst players in the league. The fact that he will most likely be cut makes the team better. Hate to focus on that, but watching him made me think Haley/Pioli had a death wish for this team.

    On the offensive side of the ball, we can dispense with the Quinten Lawrence experiment.

    The bottom of the roster probably got better. I like that as much as anything.

    There always needs to be a clearing of the bottom of the roster. As Pioli/Haley get more comfortable with the players, we can look for a diva type here or there to add to the talent pool and not disrupt the overall goals of the team. Today’s athletes have issues, to say the least, but top athletes can be “handled” as the team improves.

    Washington as least could get on the field, brutal to watch but not always toast. Lawrence looked bad from his first training camp. But that is only opinion. May happen to some of our current rookies but, from a management attitude, what a vast improvement even over last years rookies. Personally, just loved we did not have to double pick for a position of need. Talk about building for the future.
