Chiefs Use Their Last Draft Pick On a Safety: Leon McQuay III

The last nail in the 2017 draft as been stuck for these Kansas City Chiefs. John Dorsey used his last pick to select the Safety from USC, Leon McQuay. McQuay is 6-foot-2 inches and weighs 185 pounds. Most 6th round picks are full of potential and the same can be said of Leon McQuay. Following are a couple of videos of Leon McQuay.

    OK Laddie, either your tired or you can’t find a lot to say about this pick either. It sounds like he has played almost every spot in the backfield but looks like another STer and hopefully turns into a good reserve.

      Hi Paul… Guess you noticed. I’m actually a bit miffed by this draft class. I hope to God there are things that the Chiefs evaluators know about these guys that we don’t. I mean a whole lot of stuff because for all appearances, they passed up a ton of talent to take these prospects and it disconcerting like never before.

        I think it will work out for the best Laddie! I love our new QB! Hunt looks to be a beast and from what I can tell the other picks seem to be ok. I trust that Dorsey knows what he is doing and will come through. The only thing I’m mad about is not getting my first choice RB. Hunt seems to be a good pick though. I just hadnt done any research on him until he was drafted. I have two words to say about him BROKEN TACKLES!

          Positive attitude, good thing…. broken tackles at Toledo, not exactly the level of play as in the big 10 or even the ACC.

          I hope he makes it but it means RB by committee. Do not like that.

        • ladner morse

          I had researched Hunt and he was one on my wish list… so I’m happy about him… but… he’s probably the only one who will have an impact on the team’s performance in 2017.

            People become upset if picks do not contribute immediately. We must draft for the future. It will take time to grow our prospects. If it makes you feel better Mahomes may contribute later in the year. Quarterback controversy here we come!

        Laddie, I have been talking about the 600 pound gorilla in the Chiefs organization and it is the cap situation which has to be taken into consideration in any decisions. Couldn’t help but smile hearing about all the talk about moving down and getting more picks. We couldn’t afford the picks we had and only a fool could not see why we were giving up picks, just to be rid of them. We sure didn’t get any return for them, other than to save money. We whittled those 10 picks down to 6 and even got rid of a #1 next year which again saved us some cap money. but we will still have to get rid of some players in order to pay for the draftees. What to do? Beens we didn’t get any help with the pass rush we might stretch Houston’s deal out and add more guarantee. But then if he doesn’t pan out with his knee, we are stuck with him just as we are Smith. Of course no one who has drank the kool aid will give any credence to this scenario.

        • PaulfromnorthMO

          I can’t really agree with this. IMO the best way to cut down on the cap is to draft more players and keep them on the team at the same time cutting ties with expensive older players that can be easily replaced, like Sherman and Colquitt.
          I could have easily found room for 10 draft picks if reducing the cap were the only consideration. A WR to replace Wilsons new 1.8 mil deal. A TE to replace Harris and save over 1 mil. I could go on and on.

      • PaulfromnorthMO

        I agree, it’s almost as if 2017 is being written off and we are all in on ’18 and beyond.

      • Ribs

        Glad I am not the only one feeling this way. Any QB taken we knew would be red-shirting for a year. Tanoh sounds like he will need coached up a bit. Hunt should contribute immediately. Jehu will be a while learning the playbook. I don’t even have words for the last 2 guys.

        I’ve had a nagging thought in my head that won’t go away. With the 2018 cap situation, I have the impression that they are mostly standing pat with the roster and going on a one year run at the SB. 2018 they will blow up the team (in a minor way) to clear cap space, releasing Smith and maybe trading Houston if he doesn’t return to form this year. Hali and DJ will both be done or at least not playing at the current contract amount.

      • freshmeat62

        Agree! The fact that they moved up to get these particular players gives me hope. We really have to go w/ the mantra “In Dorsey we trust” this year.

  • Heilios

    Ok guys it would appear as if Dorsey has been a busy boy. I will try to put together a list of all of the signings but lets just say its significant. Sorry I’ve been absent today, I am on call for work and it has been pouring all day in KC. VIVA LA JET SWEEP AND GO CHIEFS!

    • tm1946

      Think 5 WRs, guess the draft has extra ones.

  • Heilios

    So I just saw Dorsey traded James O’Shaugnessy and a 6th to the Pats for their 5th. I hope Belichick dooesnt know something we don’t about him

    • tm1946

      Kid gets a shot at a SB ring, good for him. We are in love with Harris, not using him anyway. I think a good move by Mr Dorsey. Now what he used the pick for…. a different subject.

      • Heilios

        Oh God when will the Harris experiment be over? I’m sick of dropped wide open passes

        • PaulfromnorthMO

          Harris caught 100% of the passes thrown to him by Poe.

  • Chiefly Bacon

    FWIW PFF gave him the eight highest coverage grade in college football. Looks like a gangly nickle CB to me.

  • Frank Rodela

    Damien Mama has signed as an UDFA, I know nothing about him than his name is Mama…and we have Dadi on the roster

    • Frank Rodela

      Along with 5 wide outs, 5 db’s, 2 te’s and a couple days lineman

      • Chiefly Bacon

        I was super surprised to see Chiefs not draft a TE and then focus majorly on WR when we seemed fine there. Perhaps Wilson and DAT are potential trade candidates.

        • Frank Rodela

          Me too. Shag traded and no TE’S drafted may suggest they either like Escobar and or Harris will last another year

          • Chiefly Bacon

            Maybe both. Might keep 4 TEs Kelcie, Escobar, Harris and Travis. If Harris gets suspended, Chiefs have an extra roster spot for a few weeks.

    • Chiefly Bacon

      More of a power blocker as a G. Pretty slugish. Nice punch, decent guy to look at as depth.

      • Frank Rodela

        So Dadi could possibly hit Mama at practice

  • Chiefly Bacon

    Pretty underwhelmed by the UDFA class thus far. I like RB Trey Edmunds, great speed, coming off an injury, but has a high ceiling and SS Devin Chapelle lacks athleticism, but plays with heart and hits like a freight train. JR Nelson has some potential as a slot guy. Other than that, Lot of WRs with 3-cone times way too high. Just not sure what the strategy is.
