I'd love it if Poe turns out to suck but I seriously doubt kc gives up on him. They will coach him up for the next few years and then we'll see if he's a bust or not.

Look at Knowshon Moreno, taken #12. He may finally be effective this year.

In before kcpud throws stats out and tells us how good the two guys are. How many millions tied into these two one trick pony's. Poe is just Tank Tyler all over. Looks like tarzan plays like janes little girl.

Everyone knew that this pick was going take time. You expect him to be Vince Wilfork this year or something?

Poe is doing most of his work in the sub package, which is where he's needed right now.

All rookie 3-4 NT's need work. How many NT's have come into the league and dominated their first season? (Suh is not a NT btw)

He's gonna get a lot of playing time, but his focus won't be stopping the run. More pass rushing and taking up blockers.

Sounds like he would have been a better fit if taken in a lower round if your talking value picks.

Don't worry when we bring up the fact he is still a 1st round bust years later you can always use the well at least we got him on our team argument the KM (small KM) faction we have here uses.

He's learning how to be a doorstop.

There's a pretty big gap between "dominating" and being a backup to a backup.

Knowshon was a consensus top 15 pick, though. Poe was a major reach at 11 - I saw some mock that had him going to Denver with the second round pick.

Yah, that is why I don't get down on McD for taken Knowshon. Fact is, pretty much everyone thought he was a very safe pick. However, all the holier-than-thou, know-it-all prognosticators on the OMange want to trample on the pick because "we needed defense!!!"

whatever.

drafting a DT in the top 10-15 is such a freaking gamble. However, there are some ways to protect yourself from making a mistake, like watching a lot of college tape on a player. Poe didn't pass that test so if he becomes a huge bust kc can only blame themselves.

Agreed. I remember a lot of people were really excited about Brockers (LSU), and after watching the ST Louis v Indy game, I am glad we took the MethWolfe (Yeah, I am joining the bandwagon.)

Eh, I never cried about any of the choices. I actually like the choices Elway et al made. I find it amusing that all the hot air that most of the media made on the other DTs and gave the Broncos a bad draft grade.

And, thanks. I had been lurking too much and needed to get more involved.

Cox and Brockers were my #1 and #2. still think Brockers will do very well, he'll just take 2 years to fully develop.

Poe though is someone who was known to be a major project and putting him at NT was only going to make it a longer project.
though it is funny that KC can't develop a DL worth spit even with high picks.

Way to protect that is to stop picking in the top 15. When they picked Poe, they had the warning signs before hand. Luckily for the Chiefs, their fans are seeing the greatness of Cassel coming around to score so many points, defense won't be a problem.
