Let’s talk about how that impacts the draft.CDTShareTweetShareShareHow the Chiefs draft strategy changes without pick 29Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY SportsSo much changed about the landscape of the Kansas City Chiefs roster and the assets they have to improve it in the last 24 hours. Gone is the 29th pick in the draft, the Chiefs’ lowest 2020 second-round pick (sup, 64?) and pick 92. In are Frank Clark and pick 84. We spent some time in this week’s episode of the AP Draft Show breaking down the trade for Clark and what it does to the Chiefs draft. Here were some takeaways.Expect a cornerback earlyAnd as early as possible. The Chiefs have answered a huge question mark on their defense by adding Clark. Now they need to address the other glaring issue. Both short and long-term, cornerback is a glaring need. Here’s the list of cornerbacks on the Chiefs roster currently for 2020: Tremon Smith and Charvarius Ward. That’s it. That’s the list.There are new potential trade-up scenarios to discussWe’ve all talked a lot about the Chiefs aggressively moving up in the first round to lock up a cornerback or EDGE with their day two assets. Now, the moves could happen to move up in the second round. Here are some trade scenarios that make sense, per the modern trade chart. Picks 61 and 63 could get you to pick 36. Maybe Byron Murphy is still available?Picks 61 and 84 could get you to 43.Maybe the Chiefs use a similar strategy to what they did with the Bengals last year with a two-for-two pick swap? Picks 61 and 63 are worth similar value to Minnesota’s 50 and 81. The Chiefs could keep the volume of picks but ensure a cornerback they like with a move like that.The Chiefs may try to just hit it on the fairwayThey’ve secured an excellent player with their draft capital. Maybe they just try to go safe the rest of the draft? You could see a strategy geared more toward players you know will contribute rather than a developmental player with a high ceiling? The Chiefs could just set out to find more Derrick Nnadi types: players with a quality trait or two that you know will contribute in some capacity on Sundays this season. Maybe they’d be more inclined to take a player that will contribute year one at cornerback like Julian Love instead of a high ceiling player like Isaiah Johnson?Trading back is in playIf the Chiefs indeed do try to play it safe, why not ensure an extra pick by moving back from one of their second-round picks? Pick 61 is equal value to pick 75 and 114. Adding an asset gives them a chance to perhaps take a running back in the fourth round that could contribute in year one while still have 63, 75 and 84 to take players that can contribute in 2019 as well.KC Draft GuideYou can learn up on all the day two and three draft prospects the Chiefs will take in the first-ever edition of the KC Draft Guide is available for download now for only $9.99!

The Kansas City Chiefs break huddle and line up in a traditional formation: Patrick Mahomes settles under center, Kareem Hunt is in the backfield, tight end Travis Kelce joins wide receiver Sammy Watkins on the right side, and Tyreek Hill and Demarcus Robinson head to the left.Then, from a defensive perspective Juan Thornhill Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , all hell breaks loose.Mahomes is suddenly dropping into the shotgun, careful he doesn't run into Hunt, who has moved from the left side to the right. Hill has run all the way across the field and lined up on the right, just as Kelce has raced in the other direction to line up on the left.The defense thought it had everyone covered. Now, mismatches abound as linebackers try to cover Kelce and safeties are forced to match up with the Chiefs' speedy wide receivers.That play against Pittsburgh a couple weeks ago wasn't just a gimmick. That's standard stuff in the Chiefs' basic offense, a seemingly seamless melding of Andy Reid's old-school West Coast system and the new-school spread offenses that have changed the college game."That play calling was something I've never seen before," said Jacksonville safety Tashaun Gipson, whose top-ranked defense was torched in a 30-14 loss at Arrowhead Stadium last Sunday."I've played Andy Reid, and maybe it was the Browns or it was Jacksonville 2016, and he didn't pull out all the stops," Gipson said. "But this game plan, man, and I can't say it enough 鈥?and again, I'm not trying to discredit any guys over there 鈥?but I've never seen a team do that to us consistently."In fact, Gipson said Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , "they had their way with us all game."They've had their way with just about everybody the first five weeks, piling up a franchise-record 175 points. Mahomes has already thrown for 1,513 yards, shattering the Chiefs mark for five games, and a 300-yard passing game at New England on Sunday would give him a team-record five straight.Kansas City (5-0) has scored at least 30 points in each of its games."If you try to play zone coverage against them, they've got the guys to beat zone. They have the guys to beat man. So you have to pick your poison," Gipson said. "We came here with all this hype, talking about how good we are as a defense, myself included, and we got drug out there. Straight drug."What the Chiefs are doing this season is hardly a flash-in-the-pan attack, though. It's the culmination of years of tinkering, beginning with Brad Childress' work as "spread game analyst" and incorporating bits of the college-style spread attack to what the Chiefs were doing last season.But while Alex Smith could pull off run-pass options, or do things in the quarterback-run game, it wasn't a perfect fit. That came when Mahomes took over as the starter this season.Mahomes is a product of the Air Raid system, basically a spread offense on steroids. He is accustomed to a flood of targets all over the field Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019 , quickly identifying where the matchup problems give the offense an advantage, and delivering the ball so that his playmakers can make things happen.Plus, Mahomes has the arm strength to make any throw on the field."He's not afraid to let it loose," Broncos offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said. "When you have the arm strength that he has, he can fit the ball into those small windows."Most of the time, though, the Chiefs are able to give him garage doors.That's because they have the personnel to make all those creative formations work. Kelce is athletic enough to line up anywhere on the field, Hunt has excellent hands for a running back, and Hill and Watkins have the speed to beat anyone in a one-on-one matchup.So, for example, the Chiefs can line up without anyone in the backfield, forcing defenses to change their personnel and alignment. Then the motion games begin, and Kelce or Hill or someone else could end up in the backfield, creating confusion and mismatches."There's not much we can do once we make our call and (Mahomes) comes out in his formation," Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. "Once he goes empty Juan Thornhill black jersey , he knows what he's got. That makes it tough."Or downright impossible, it sometimes seems."Watching Andy for a long time, he always has some neat, cool things," 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said. "I don't know where they come from. He's in there looking up a lot of stuff because they do some unusual things. Sometimes I'm predicting it came from a high school team, maybe a college team. They know how to spread the field. They know how to run all those jet sweeps and do all the RPOs."Shanahan said the foundation remains the West Coast offense, and the Chiefs are still capable of beating teams with basic stuff. Just look at how they've put away games late in the fourth quarter, when they've leaned on Hunt and some old-fashioned, smash-mouth football.But none of that catches people's attention like the flashy stuff."Over these last four years or so, they've really added an element of the misdirection and stuff. It's been an issue, not just because of the plays, but the people with the plays," Shanahan said. "They have the speed at every angle to run those things and really put defenses in a bind."NOTES: SS Eric Berry (heel), FS Eric Murray (ankle) and OLBs Justin Houston (hamstring) and Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle) remained out of practice Thursday.
