Mel Kiper says the Chiefs should draft Manti Te’o

The Kansas City Chiefs are currently in line to have to number one overall pick in April’s NFL draft.

Right now there really aren’t any quarterbacks worthy of being drafted first overall, so ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. believes they should draft Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o.

In my opinon, the best move would be to trade down and grab a quarterback in the mid to late first round.

    Are you nuts? The Cards don’t need more wr’s and they certainly wouldn’t think of trading PP for one.

    Te’o is profoundly overrated. Not in the top 100 players in tackles for a loss or sacks, 61st in avg tackles per game, 70th in passes defensed – in top 5 for interceptions but that is it. He would not start on Bama or LSU.

    only trade percy for draft picks of at least a 1st 2nd and a 3rd with the picks coming in at a maximum of two years, obviously you have forgotten already how valuable he is to the vikings or you are a packers fan

    Living in the Carolinas, it’s hard to forget Kiper’s insistance that Jimmy Clausen (also from ND) was the greatest QB ever born, and the Panthers believed him! Mel Jr. s/b vending newspapers for a living.

    Andy Reid has never drafted a linebacker in the first round. It is not a position he regards as that important. IF he doesn’t draft a QB it will be a offensive or defensive lineman.

    Chiefs should trade down in the draft with the 49rs. Our #1 for their #1 and Alex Smith. Solves both problems at once.

    Kiper is responsible for more draft busts than any team. He has been linked to draft day money. Teo is at best a decent college linebacker. He was manhandled against Bama.

    I think his lack of production in the National Championship game proves that he is not that good when playing against a high caliber team.

    If the Chiefs were smart they would go get Joe Webb from the Vikings and trade down. He is a faster and bigger RGIII

    Stupid, stupid, stupid idea if you’re the Cards. You never trade a lock down corner in his prime for an offensive skill player. Why?Look how that worked out for the redskins when they traded Champ Bailey to the Broncos for that running back…what’s his name again?

    This guy was “Bosworthed” by the Bama backs the whole National Championship game. I’d take a chance on him in the 5th round. That’s about it. He’s not ready for the NFL. He obviously wasn’t ready for an elite college team.

    I’m surprised that Kiper is (was?) so high on Te’o. Statistically, he wasn’t that much of a stand-out, and he got abused against Bama. He looked small, slow, and lost. No way he’s an NFL star in the making. If the Chiefs want an impact LB, they should draft Jarvis Jones. He’s fast, strong, and has a high football IQ. Not a Rhodes Scholar, but he KNOWS the game. I believe, though, that KC will trade down and get a package of draft picks and/or players from another team. They just have too many needs for one player to be a solution.

    Mel is the biggest idiot on TV. If is football knowledge was as big as is ego he would be the best at evaluating talent

    I so concur with some things written.
    1) A Percy Harvin and 3rd rounder trade for Patrick Peterson? Dumb. Just dumb. And that is putting it mildly. Patrick Peterson has not hit is prime … yet. He is still learning the position believe it or not. Harvin, I have never been a huge fan of.

    2) Manti Te’o is at best an average LB.

    3) Please learn to spell and learn proper grammar

    UMMMMM When will people realize that this “shill” for the media is clueless about football. Kind of like the weathermen every night.. “It’s going to rain tonight”…. But when it doesn’t, nobody remembers what he said last night….. WRONG most of the time. Plus, more than that, it’s just a ploy to arouse dumb people to watch TV so they can sell commercials to stupid big corporations at ridiculous prices under the guise of necessary advertising as “good business.” C’m!on people… get a life. Don’t be part of the problem
