Draft Smack:  Chiefs vs. Raiders

We know we say this about every NFL rivalry but seriously...these two teams do NOT like each other.

So which one had the better draft?

Which team can talk smack and which one is just whack? You tell us!


Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders

The Chiefs were a surprise playoff team last year; could the silver and black make the same jump this year?  This year’s crop of new players will go a long way in defining how these two franchises fare over the next couple years.

Kansa City Chiefs Draft Highlights:

The Chiefs beefed-up their defense with the addition of pass rushing DE Dee Ford and play-making DB Phillip Gaines.  In the third round they added lightening-quick RB De’Anthony Thomas (who gets bonus points for his cool "Black Mamba" nickname) and perhaps a QB of the future in Aaron Murray with their 5th round selection.


Oakland Raider Draft Highlights:

This was one of the Raiders best drafts in many years.  With the fifth pick overall they chose OLB Khalil Mack who will make an immediate impact on defense. Then they took QB Derek Carr, who was in the discussion as possibly the best QB in the draft. They also added G Gabe Jackson, DT Justin Ellis and CB Keith McGill.
