The Kansas City Chiefs have many holes on their football team as the Draft approaches.
Hey everyone this is Dana Ward with our Kansas City Chiefs NFL Draft Coverage on GamblersTelevision.com.
Sitting with the fifth pick in the NFL Draft are the Kansas City Chiefs coming off a 4-12 season. Kansas City needs tons of help from this draft. They need help on their defensive line as they rank 28th in the league against the run as they give up 130 yards per game. Sedrick Ellis, defensive lineman from USC would make the most sense for the Chiefs with their first pick. Ellis will demand a double team in the NFL Of his 58 tackles last season 12 ½ were for negative yardage. Ellis played nose tackle last year at USC and the Trojans were very good at stopping the run. Ellis has first step quickness and is a disruptive force against opposing run games. Ellis also can put pressure on the quarterback as he had 8 ½ sacks last season. Another area of concern for the Chiefs is their poor offense from last season. The Chiefs once proud running game has sunk to the worst in the league last season as they averaged only 78 yards per game on the ground. They have lost 3 starting offensive lineman to free agency and are going to use the draft for replenishment. The good news for the Chiefs is they have 10 picks in the early rounds of the draft and most likely will go offensive lineman in the middle rounds. Their wide receiving corps was among the worst in the NFL. The Chiefs should not gamble here and wait to draft a defensive lineman later in the draft because one may not command a double team later in the draft and that will be a disaster. Gamblers Television projects with the 5th pick in the NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs will draft Sedrick Ellis, Defensive Lineman, from USC.
