Derrick Henry in the second round? Come on Walt. There will be teams lining up to insert him as their bell cow back. Mainly, the Tennessee Titans. Marcus and Derrick Henry would be a matchup nightmare ala Wilson Lynch a couple years ago. Henry would reduce the need for Marcus to carry the team considering he can tote the ball 30 times a game for 100 and a TD. That alone would allow for a better play action game and possibly some more read option opportunities with a RB defenses have to worry about. If Henry makes it to the Lions in Rd2 I will never post on your website again.
Andy Reid loves bolstering the trenches. I've had him taking an offensive lineman all this time, but he could also find someone for his defensive front. Jaye Howard andMike DeVito have both been outstanding this season, but they also happen to be impending free agents. It'll be difficult to keep both around.
Pick change; previously Taylor Decker, OT

Jacoby Brissett, QB, N.C. State
The next six games will be crucial for Alex Smith (and also the fans) in Kansas City. Smith can save his job by playing well down the stretch and taking the team on a run into the playoffs. The fans, as a result, will be miserable because they'll have to watch more of Smith's dinks and dunks going forward. However, if Smith continues to struggle, the stubborn Andy Reid may be forced to abandon him. If so, a quarterback is in play at this juncture.

The Chiefs need a receiver besides Jeremy Maclin. When Maclin left the game against the Chargers, the offense looked pretty lost for a while.
The Chiefs could use a big possession receiver to pair with Jeremy Maclin. Treadwell would be perfect.
The 6-foot-2, 229-pound Treadwell is a natural receiver who is good at winning 50-50 passes and running after the catch. However, he lacks the speed to separate from a lot of defensive backs. The big wideout also is a phenomenal blocker.
This year, Treadwell has 72 receptions for 1,060 yards and eight touchdowns. He recorded 48 receptions for 632 yards and five touchdowns in 2014 before an ugly injury ended his season. Treadwell caught 72 receptions for 608 yards with five scores in 2013.
Pick change; previously Connor Cook, QB

Sebastian Tretola, G, Arkansas
Kansas City's offensive line needs a lot of help. Donald Stephenson is entering free agency for one, while Eric Fisher has been a massive disappointment. The Chiefs need help on the inside as well. Here's an upgrade.
The 6-foot-5, 334-pound Tretola has been a player who has impressed evaluators in 2015. He has done a good job of opening holes in the ground game for Alex Collins. Sources tipped me off that Tretola was a prospect they liked, and he definitely is making a name for himself in scouting circles. You can expect to hear more about Tretola in the months to come.

Antonio Morrison, ILB/OLB, Florida
The Chiefs are still searching for an inside linebacker to pair with Derrick Johnson, and with Johnson aging, it is becoming increasingly important.
In 2015, Morrison has 79 tackles with 11 for a loss, 2.5 sacks and a pass breakup. He suffered a serious knee injury in spring practice that required surgery, and most players miss a year after that kind of injury, but Morrison (6-1, 229) made a record-setting recovery to play this year.
Morrison had 101 tackles with six tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, one sack, one pass broken up and one interception in 2014. He improved as the season progressed and is a tough run defender. Morrison still has room for improvement in pass coverage and needs to get bigger for NFL blockers.
Despite adding Jeremy Maclin and Chris Conley, the Chiefs look like they are still going to go a few more weeks without a receiver catching a touchdown pass. Tyler Boyd has decent size, solid hands and good route-running ability, which warrants his stance as a 1st round receiver, but it’s clear that the last two draft classes were the best opportunities for Kansas City to find their #1 receiver.
