Love The Fluker pick. My favorite player in this draft. Would love for the Bronco to draft him but he won't last that long.

nice pick on Trufant, was hoping he'd fall to 26, seems like a really hot commodity right now and his stock should keep rising as we get closer to the draft

The more I study Trufant, the more I think he's a top 10 pick. Great production, great measureables, great bloodlines.... The kid's got it all.

He is probably going to be this years, Stephon Gilmore. People were thinking he was a realistic shot for us and then he blew it up and adios amigos.

The Chiefs are happy as can be that they were able to keep Richardson in state!

I don't think he fits a 3-4.. So if he goes to a 4-3 team your gonna look much better for making that pick..

I thought about it... but the more and more I watched him I just didn't like how much he got pushed around. I would take Kawann Short over Richardson. But I guess that's just me and what I see. He just isn't strong enough.

He's a freakish athlete that can fill many roles on the team. The Chiefs have holes all along their d-line and Richardson will be on the field as long as he has a breath of fresh air.

Your gonna be judged on his production, so it's a great pick cause a 4-3 teams gonna put him at UT.

So in the context of how we would be judged its a great pick. Good job.

He is not going to excel in a 3-4, unless they change to a single gap 3-4 and let him penetrate. Kid can be run at all day long in a two gap system.

Oh well, another KC DL head scratcher

Bob Sutton is known for a varying style of attack. I expect both a single and two gap approach and even a little 4-6 out of the Chiefs this year. Richardson gives him great flexibility. The Chiefs were near the bottom of the league in sacks last year. I expect them to get aggressive and Richardson is one of the best penetrating DT's in this draft.

Typical OM draft; All the beef goes in the top of the first round.

The Bengals have Geno Atkins who is a stud, but I was half tempted to take Richardson if he was on board. He and Trufant were in my Top 15. I don't know if he's the right fit for KC, but he is a great player. One more pick to go and I'll be ready!

I was worried he'd have been your pick. I honestly wanted either Trufant or Richardson. Would have gone ILB if both gone, but I knew I needed to get up a few more picks to ensure one of my three was available.

And then we can say goodbye to Tavon.

Richardson is weak and he will be a bust.

Honestly, didn't really want to take him. There is another guy I was REALLY tempted to take, but Trufant is just took perfect of a BPA pick for the Saints here, so I had to shelf my dreams of making a fancy dark horse pick that surprises everyone when he goes even higher on draft day.
