KC g BAL (O Brown)
The Chiefs won the draft before the thing even started. GM Brett Veach made the best possible move by trading our RD1 pick for Orlando Brown.

After inheriting the Ravens' draft spot, Veach selected Mizzou's Nick Bolton, an enforcer with great instincts to the ball. He plays all aspects of the game well: run, coverage, and pass rush. His goal-line stands that resemble hitting a concrete barricade. He sky-rocketed up draft boards after halting LSU earlier this season.

Creed Humphrey NFL Draft photo
After earning a Super Bowl record of 29 QB pressures the Chiefs got the message the line needed an upgrade. OU Center Creed Humphrey has anchored the Sooner offensive line for some very talented quarterbacks in his college career, and has been as solid as a rock. The 3-time All American has not allowed a sack in his college career. That is 2,327 snaps over 37 career games!

CHIEFS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
