Draft Grade: Steady
While Kansas City continues to shed the horrible human beings that John Dorsey picked for them, they needed a draft with solid prospects and solid people across the board. They seemed to have accomplished this task.
Hardman won’t be the Cheetah, but at least he can provide an explosive, vertical threat to keep the offense operating without making major changes.
The Chiefs needed a safety and might have found a gem in Thornhill. They need a lot of new players for this new defense, and he was a favorite during the draft process.
Saunders is one of the feel good prospects of the draft process, but is no gimmick. This is a big, active defensive tackle that can get after it.
