With the twenty-first pick in the 2011 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select...

Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois

The defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a 10-6 season that surprised many onlookers that don't closely follow our team. Those in the know understand that the Chiefs are reaping the rewards of solid first round draft choices. We take pride in the fact that our last seven first round selections were all starters on last year's playoff team.

On offense we've got a dynamic running game that led the league in 2010, a legitimate star wideout, and a solid but not spectacular offensive line. We'd love to have another wide receiver to work the field opposite Dwayne Bowe, but with AJ Green and Julio Jones gone we don't see anyone available that we grade as a first round talent. An elite OT would allow some reshuffling along the line, but we don't feel the tackles available now are significantly better than the guys we're already developing or the talent we expect to see available in round two. While there was some discussion about Ryan Mallet's arm, the talk quickly ended when an astute observer pointed out it was unfortunately bundled with Ryan Mallet's head and feet.

On defense we have a front seven that consists of four young first round selections, two veteran journeyman, and an undrafted free agent who's developing into a very solid ILB. While we very much appreciate the contributions we've received from NT Ron Edwards and OLB Mike Vrabel, they are in what we must gently refer to as their twilight years. Behind them we've got an outstanding pair of cornerbacks and what we estimate are roughly four amazing strong safeties that all wear Eric Berry's uniform and are somehow able to be on the field making plays simultaneously. While we'd love to find an Ed Reed to pair them with, we don't see one in this draft.

That analysis leaves the areas of need that can be filled at our position in the draft as NT or OLB. With eight DE/OLBs already gone, the pickings are getting slim for first round talent. Justin Houston got a good long look, but eventually we decided he was too one-dimensional for a pick this high.

Finally we find ourselves with one position to analyze, the one position that is a perfect marriage of BPA and team needs: defensive tackle. We've been watching Stephen Paea for a couple years now, but as much as we love his rugby skills and how they apply to moving offensive linemen, he just doesn't look quick or agile enough for us to be confident in taking him this high. The popular choice for us is Baylor's Phil Taylor, but his background looks a little too spotty for our midwestern values. Recently there's been a lot of talk surrounding Muhammad Wilkerson, but the level of opposition he played against at Temple really doesn't show us enough on tape to merit considering him before the latter stages of the second round. There is one young man, however, that stands out as the obvious choice for our organization... Corey Liuget.

At 6'2" and 298lbs, Corey has the size, speed, and alertness that we value in a defensive tackle. Our scouts tell me he's the best run stuffer in the draft, but he's also got the punch to knock o-linemen out of the way and the quicks to get into the backfield. He's a bruising tackler and has the quick, agile feet to maneuver a tangle of bodies and get into the backfield. He shows the smarts and balance to leverage his body and the bodies of blockers. He shows excellent hustle, and that's very important to us. What also impressed us was the conversations we had with him. I'm confident he'll take it as the compliment it is to say he's a down-to-Earth Momma's boy with all the heart in the world. A kid like that doesn't play for a contract, he plays for pride and for his team and for his coach. This is our guy.
