In an Insider piece, ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay looks at some top-five draft pick possibilities.
Using this week’s ESPN.com’s Power Rankings as his guide, McShay looks at what the Chiefs, 1-4, could take with the No. 3 pick and what the Raiders, 1-3, could take at the No. 4 pick.
For the Chiefs, McShay hones in on West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith and USC quarterback Matt Barkley. If the Chiefs do have the No. 3 pick and one of these two players are available, I see Kansas City rolling with a quarterback in the first round for the first time since it took Todd Blackledge with the No. 7 overall pick in 1983.
For the Raiders, McShay focuses on a quarterback or a pass-rusher such as Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones or LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo. Because the Raiders gave up so much for Carson Palmer, I think they should look for defensive help. A game changer on defense is needed.
