Random thoughts on third round in the AFC West:
Interesting pick by the Chargers at No. 82 to take San Diego State receiver Vincent Brown. He has the look of a strong possession receiver. He has great hands and he is polished. With several potential free agents, including Legedu Naanee, not expected back, taking the hometown kid was a strong call.
I really like what the Chiefs are doing. They followed up the Justin Houston pick at No. 70 (in a pick acquired from Cleveland on Thursday night), by taking Miami defensive end Allen Bailey at No. 86. This is a strong value pick. Bailey needs to be coached and he needs to find consistency, but he could potentially help at defensive tackle as well. The Chiefs are putting together a nice draft.
Denver thinks No. 67 pick, linebacker Nate Irving of North Carolina State, is versatile and could play several spots, Irving survived a terrible car accident in 2009. He recovered fully and is projected as a potential starter. He should help on special teams.
Oakland traded its second-round pick next year in a package that brought Barksdale to Oakland. Uniquely, the trade was made several picks before the pick. Usually, when teams trade a future pick it is because it wants a specific player on the clock.
