2020 NFL Draft: A Thought For The 32 Teams For The Future |

Kansas City chefs: When Andy Reid says that Clyde Edwards-Helaire compares favorably to Brian Westbrook as a prospect, the fantasy football outlets should stand up straight. Don’t expect Super Bowl hero Damien Williams to completely disappear. Reid has always preferred a recall committee, even during most of the Westbrook Peak.

Edwards-Helaire was one of the late risers in the draft because his versatility would have matched most of the NFL teams. But it’s hard to imagine a better fit for his talents than the chefs.

As a result, Edwards-Helaire scored +800 to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year title, tied for second best with Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Little expected probably short but not small Clyde Edwards-Helaire to be the first ball carrier caught. But the LSU product has the type of burst, lateral agility and speed to create its own space as a runner, and it is a diverse weapon in the passing game.

One gripe with this choice is that you can almost always find quality tailback in the middle rounds (yes, that old song) and that there were still good defensive backs on the board. This includes Xavier McKinney of Alabama, who would have been a great replacement (stylistically) for the underrated free agent Kendall Fuller. But remember, you don’t get 32nd without doing a few good things as a franchise. It will be interesting to come back to this one in a few years.

Kansas City chefs

Choice of draft: LSU RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Mississippi State LB Willie Gay (no 63), TCU OT Lucas Niang (no 96), Louisiana Tech S L’Jarius Sneed (no 138), Michigan DE Michael Danna (no 177) , Tulane CB Thakarius Keyes (n ° 237)

Level 1: A-

Level 2: B

Level 3: B

Global mark: B +

Analysis project: Coach Andy Reid returned to his all-rounder in the first round (Edwards-Helaire), then tried his luck on a few talented players with character problems (Gay) and / or injury (Niang) with big advantages on Friday evening. Sneed is an outside corner who has played safety as a senior to help his team. Not too surprised to see the Chiefs add Danna to Day 3 as they already have another former Wolverine (and a similarly built shipboard rusher) to Frank Clark on the list. Kansas City should be able to find indoor offensive linemen to provide depth after the draft.

Kansas City chefs

After a Super Bowl victory, the Kansas City Chiefs didn’t need to do much. The value of going back to the first round can be debated, but choice # 32 is not that bad. Kansas City used this selection on LSU’s Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He is a dynamic ball carrier who is compact, fast and violent with the ball in his hands.

Linebacker Willie Gay Jr. has scared off some teams because of his problems off the field, but he is an impressive athlete who plays in the cover. Third-round pick Lucas Niang had a first-round buzz early in his college career. If he is in good health, he is the type of player who can possibly succeed the great Mitchell Schwartz in a straight tackle.

The Chiefs could have done more at cornerback after losing several this off-season. The Jarius Sneed, caught in the fourth round, is more of a safety / cornerback tweener.

The truth: I almost prefer unwritten transport to their draft players. Yes, they have reached Edwards-Helaire, but they can afford it. There are legitimate character concerns with the talented Gay (the chefs don’t seem to care).

Kansas City chefs

With Patrick Mahomes offering an almost unprecedented advantage, the defense of the Chiefs in round 1 would have made sense. But Kansas City, instead of tabulating LSU defender Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who also stands out as a promising player (55 caught last season), could form one of the big skill groups for a long time. The leaders successfully persuaded Sammy Watkins to take a pay cut and re-sign the number 4 direct seller Demarcus Robinson. Edwards-Helaire joining Damien Williams, K.C. somehow improved a skill group that already included two All-Pros (Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill).

2. The ball carrier selected on day 1, and it is not Andre Swift

The only ball carrier who could have been selected Thursday evening was Georgian Andre Swift, considered the best ball carrier in this year’s draft (Jonathan Taylor also taken into account). Will Brinson of CBS Sports actually asked the chefs to select Swift with the 32nd pick in one of the fictitious Mondays at CBS Sports headquarters.

3. Mike Remmers

The Chiefs needed a tackle on the offensive line after Stefan Wisniewski left for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They chose to sign ex-New York Giants right handler Mike Remmers, who was in the best shape last season. The signing of a one-year contract does not provide much security for the veteran, and he received a stern message after the leaders drafted TCU forward Lucas Niang in the third round. Niang plans to be KC’s tackle for the future, while Remmers serves as an emergency option. Considering he is carrying just over $ 800,000 in dead money, the former giant may be looking for a new job by the end of training camp.

10. 49ers sign CB Logan ryan

San Francisco did not miss a corner despite their desire to improve against Richard Sherman. And now is the time to boost high school for another Super Bowl race. Ryan has proven himself on several contenders and could enter as an immediate starter, not to mention potentially replacing Sherman in a year or two. If he really wants $ 10 million a year, too bad. John Lynch should be able to make it work, even if it’s a one- or two-year deal.

The deal is worth $ 21 million, including $ 16 million fully guaranteed on signing, plus an additional $ 1 million in performance incentives, ESPN source Adam Schefter said. Yahoo Sports was the first to release details of Hill’s contract.

“I felt a lot of love from the organization and the fan base. … My wife and I have always wanted to stay in New Orleans, so it worked perfectly, “said Hill in a conference call on Sunday.

“We have time, and I think the end goal for both camps is the same and it is to build a long line of wins here and keep going,” said Veach. “It is certain that the foundations were laid from the day we wrote it, and then AFC Championship game and the following year that follows with a super bowl to win. His goal and his state of mind are exactly the same state of mind as we are and it’s just to win championships here and create a legacy.

“Pat certainly wants to build his own legacy and he wants to do it in Kansas City and we want to build a long line of winning Super Bowls here. I think at the end of the day, we all understand the dynamics that make this happen, both individually and as a team.
