AFC West 1st day draft recap

Bad day for the West. At least the Chiefs did better than the other teams. Denver has used all of its picks acquired from the Bears to finish out the Cutler trade. Chicago will pick 140th overall to finish up that trade. IMO Da Bears stole Cutler. Denver wasted those picks and I'm lovin' it.

  • Chiefs
    • #3 overall – Tyson Jackson. Fits with the team, could have traded down and got him. Will be overpaid as a five technique DE
  • Chargers
    • #16 overall – Larry English. Good fit for the team, maybe Merriman is not healthy?
  • Raiders
    • #7 overall - Darrius Heyward-Bey. Are you kidding me? The fastest WR so not a surprise the Raiders picked him up but surprised he was picked here.
    • #47 overall – Mike Mitchell. I guess if you want a safety you get one in the second in this draft. I don't think this is the right guy though…What's his 40 time? Unknown, not invited to the combine. Hits like a ton of bricks on a highlight film so I guess that's all the Raiders need is a nice highlight file. See Brown, Larry…
  • Donks
    • #12 overall - Knowshon Moreno. Nice player, fits the offense. Not even close to a need in Denver. Maybe Josh is the RB version of Gruden.
    • #18 overall – (acquired in Cutler trade) Robert Ayers. Don't see how he fits in their D.
    • #37 overall - (used 1st rounder acquired in Cutler trade) Alphonso Smith. Nice player. Will replace departed Dre Bly. Not an upgrade over Bly IMO.
    • #48 overall - Darcel McBath. Another safety reach due to lack of depth. I guess Denver's best pick of the day and that is not a complement.
    • #64 overall – Richard Quinn (Used 3rd rounder acquired in Cutler trade)
