2010 NFL Draft Grades: Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City faced a dilemma at the fifth spot and made the right decision by taking the ultra-athletic and versatile Eric Berry.
They could have easily went for a stud offensive tackle, and could have even considered going after Jimmy Clausen, but very few people will argue they made the wrong choice.
Kansas City did a solid job, grabbing fairly under-rated talents in Dexter McCluster and Javier Arenas, adding depth to their offensive and defensive backfields.
McCluster can help the return game right away, possesses the hands and athleticism to work out of the slot as a receiver, and has the experience and vision to operate out of the backfield.
The Chiefs also got some really good value with Jon Asamoah in the third round, as well as Iowa tight end Tony Moeaki.
They could have used a little more help on the offensive line, but the Chiefs still added an immediate impact defender, a corner who can help their depth, and three offensive players who can compete right away for significant roles.
