The Phinsider Community Mock Draft: Pick #5 - Kansas City Chiefs

New, comments

With the fourth pick in The Phinsider Community Mock Draft, the Oakland Raiders select Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas.

McFadden won with 47% of the vote.  Vernon Gholston followed in second with 25%.  Glenn Dorsey came in third with 17%.

So now the draft looks like this so far:

  1. Miami Dolphins - Chris Long, DE, Virginia (49%)
  2. St. Louis Rams - Jake Long, OT, Michigan (67%)
  3. Atlanta Falcons - Matt Ryan, QB, BC (68%)
  4. Oakland Raiders - Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas (47%)
Next up is the fifth pick, which belongs to the Kansas City Chiefs.  For all the Chiefs' news and insight you could want, head over to Arrowhead Pride.  Listed below are the Chiefs' draft needs, according to NFL Draft Countdown:
1. Offensive Line: What had been a team strength for many years has now become their greatest weakness. It's not easy to replace guys like Willie Roaf and Will Shields and they certainly proved that.
2. Cornerback: Ty Law was sent packing and Patrick Surtain is near the end of his career. How about the depth you ask? At this point it consists of a couple of second year undrafted free agents. Yikes!!!
3. Wide Receiver: They found a keeper in Dwayne Bowe in Round 1 last year but Eddie Kennison was shown the door and they need more than just a bunch of unproven youngsters such as Jeff Webb.
