This is what I'll label as the Best Player Available Draft. Pioli can easily man-the-field with starters next season. The Chiefs biggest weakness was depth and at Quarterback. I expect the Chiefs to trade down, espeically in the first round... but it's sort of lame and unconventional to predict how.
1. Melvin Ingram, SC, LB - Ingram will likely fall to 11 because of Scouts identifying him as a "tweener" . The same occurred with Shawne Merriman and Brian Urlacher and he turned out to be a multiple Pro Bowler. Ingram works best in space, and could be a MLB or OLB and would likely bring 7-10 sacks even as a subpackage player. His speed off the snap won't attract him to 4-3 teams, IMO.
Other Option : Stephon Gilmore, SC, CB
2. Kendall Reyes , UConn , DL - If Reyes doesn't get drafted by the Patriots, He could easily drop to Kansas City in the 2nd round. The 6'4, 299 lb DE/DT could be seen as a potential replacement for Tyson Jackson or Glenn Dorsey and could come in for subpackages.
Other Option : Amini Silatolu , G, Midwestern State
3. Casey Hayward, Vanderbilt, DB - Hayward might have been the 2nd Best DB in the SEC last season. He's a bit thin, but has the right measurements and mind to play against taller WRs. He could come in and find himself playing for the 3rd corner position with Brown, Arenas, and Carr.
4. Brandon Brooks, G, Miami (OH) - Brooks stock was hurt when he didn't receive an invitation to the combine. His Pro Day made up for it, however he could have been a 2nd round prospect had it turned out differently. With ZBS, there isn't that high of a need to draft a prospect higher than the 3rd or 4th round. It mostly involves intelligence as much as it does athleticism.
5. Trumaine Johnson, Montana, DB - Johnson is a project with high potential. In all likelyhood he'll need a year on the inactive list to understand the speed of the game. At 6'3 he could play a 3rd Safety or 3rd corner role to help the D face TEs. Although it's under the radar... the Chiefs are losing Jon McGraw, Sabbi Piscatelli, Rashard Langford, Bradnon Carr, and Travis Daniels. That's a pretty large laundry list for a secondary ranked highly last year.
6. Mike Brewster , C/G, Ohio State - Brewster has been dropping since mid-season. He struggled at the combine and had a medicore season. He is extremely smart and could potentially do well after sitting a year under Lilja.
7a. Jeremy Ebert, WR, Northwestern - Could be a slot WR the Chiefs need.
7b. Brad Smelley,FB, Alabama - The Chiefs need to find someone to block for Hillis. I expect them to try to find a fullback in this draft as Shane Bannon looks to be a special teams/bust type of player.
Biggest problem going into next offseason?
Quarterback ... After RGIII / Luck the QB Class starts to become extremely medicore.
Due to new rules, the Chiefs must sign Dwayne Bowe before July. But perhaps the ball is more in Bowe's court and he'll wait and see what happens in 2012.
Chiefs will likely Franchise-Tag Brandon Albert and risk losing Dosey or Jackson. This Draft also predicts that the Chiefs will sign a NT (Shaun Cody) based on Crennel's statements on the matter however that will take place AFTER the draft.
