Worst John Dorsey Picks For The Kansas City Chiefs #9

Mike Catapano – DE: 7th Round of 2013 NFL Draft

It’s not that Mike Catapano was a bad pick for the Kansas City Chiefs, he just couldn’t find a place. In reality, Catapano could still be on the Chiefs roster if it wasn’t for John Dorsey’s knack for finding 3-4 defensive ends. When you can build up this much talent at a position, it’s tough to keep developmental guys around.

Mike Catapano would hang around in Kansas City for a couple of seasons, flashing his potential. However, a mysterious illness hit Catapano hard in 2014 and it seemed like he never rebounded from it. The Chiefs moved on ahead of the 2015 season and “Big Cat” would wind up with the Jets. He is currently a free agent.

Who Could They Have Had?

A familiar name for Chiefs fans was taken later on in this round…Marcus Cooper. The corner who would eventually land in KC was drafted with pick 252 by the San Francisco 49ers. We all know how this story would eventually end. However, there is no telling what kind of player Cooper could have been for the Chiefs with the benefit of a full offseason in Kansas City.
