There's just no pleasing some of you.
You made some good points, and we looked at it again. Now we are quite confident that the Kansas Chiefs will win Super Bowl XLIX.
Why? First of all, the Chiefs are angry about blowing a 38-10 lead in last year's AFC Wild Card game.
Second, the Chiefs are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. RB Jamaal Charles is one of the most dynamic players in the league and QB Alex Smith is a smart and efficient game general who is perfectly capable of leading the Chiefs all the way.
Their defense is down right scary and chock full of playmakers such as DB Eric Berry, NT Dontari Poe and a trio of stud linebackers: Justin Houston, Tamba Hali and prized rookie Dee Ford.
Add all that up and you know what you get? Super Bowl Champs!
The Chiefs beefed up their defense with the addition of pass-rushing DE Dee Ford and the 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.
Grade the Chiefs draft below and then give us your comments.
1. Dee Ford - (DE, Auburn)
2. Phillip Gaines - (CB, Rice)
3. De'anthony Thomas - (RB, Oregon)
4. Aaron Murray - (QB, Georgia)
5. Zach Fulton - (G, Tennessee)
6. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif - (OT, McGill)
We know we say this about every NFL rivalry but seriously...these two teams do NOT like each other.
Which team can talk smack and which one is just whack? You tell us!
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders
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.
