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.

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.

Glad we didn't take a flyer on him. Love MethWolfe, he seems to want to be out there cooking crank every day.

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.

It's a little nieve to call the guy a bust when everyone knew he would be a 2 year project. Nothing about this situation should be a surprise to anyone. If he is in the same situation 2-3 years from now, the chiefs should be concerned.

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.)

Zero surprise... just glad the large group of posters that wanted him were not in charge of our draft.

The kid is a project, no one ever doubted that. Too call him a bust at this point is crazy. Give him 3 years of failure like Knowshon, then call him a bust.

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)

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.

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.

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.

And if he gets sacks this year? What would your excuse be? Just curious

I guess I wouldn't need one because then he might actually be playing up to a 15th overall pick value.

If he is a bust in 3 years the fingers in KC will be pointed at Romeo. He was the one that wanted him.

In all fairness to Moreno, he started out pretty solid last year before blowing that knee. Still he has not been what a #12 should be by any stretch. We'll see if he even makes the team this year but odds are higher now without Fannin in the mix. Omon is his competition.
