As we get closer and closer to the 2017 NFL Draft, we should remember that most picks don’t work out. Here are the worst picks of the Kansas City Chiefs under John Dorsey.

The 2017 NFL Draft is almost upon us. As you would expect, there are mock drafts and scouting reports all over the place. Everyone is excited for the future of their franchise, and Kansas City Chiefs fans are no different. Every player, every pick, every decision is one step closer to the Super Bowl…except when they aren’t. In fact, some picks turn out to just be plain old awful.

As the excitement of draft season continues to build, it’s important to remember that most NFL draft picks don’t work out. In fact, there are some years when almost none of the picks are worth much. Chief GM John Dorsey isn’t immune from that as he has had his share of misses.

Now, to be fair, it’s not like John Dorsey has struck out all over the place. In fact, I’ll let you know right now that this list didn’t present me with a lot of options. Of the 32 players Dorsey has selected in four drafts, only 10 are not currently on the roster. For a comparison, the Patriots only have 18 of their 36 picks through that same time period still on the roster.

So John Dorsey has done an admirable job. However, we do need to keep in mind those that didn’t pan out. If nothing else, that can help fans keep their expectations grounded a little. So here are John Dorsey’s 10 worst draft picks for the Kansas City Chiefs…

Honorable Mention

Knile Davis – RB: 3rd Round of 2013 NFL Draft

I could have put Knile Davis into the top ten, and some will argue he belongs there over the guy who holds the #10 spot. However, Davis stays off the list all because of his performance in the playoffs in 2015. Being the guy who scored the decisive (albeit first of many) score in the Chiefs first playoff win since 1993 is worthy of some respect.
