Chiefs and Saints Picks

I apologize for the delay in our mock. The Chiefs and Saints both informed me they will be unable to make their pick.

I am taking Torrey Smith, the wide receiver from Maryland for Kansas City. He is the best wide receiver still left on the board, and the Chiefs are in need of receivers to put along with Dwayne Bowe.

For the Saints, I take Christian Ballard, the defensive tackle from Iowa. After signing Shaun Rogers, defensive tackle is not as big of a need as it used to be in New Orleans, but Ballard is the best value still left on the board. A bit raw, there will be less pressure on him to play right away than there would be elsewhere.

The Seattle Seahawks and the Baltimore Ravens are up next in our mock. If you cannot make your pick, let me know immediately so we can avoid any further delays.
