I agree. If I were a Chiefs fan I would be pretty happy. Not that my team traded Allen, but the value we got for a guy who was only going to play one more year with the team, if he was even planning on suiting up in 2008. The Chiefs seem to have finally gone into a full rebuilding mode and have a chance to get off to a great start in the draft. For as sketchy as Peterson's overall drafting history is, he has made some good moves recently with the likes of Bowe, Hali, Johnson, etc.
i'm happy with the return value that we got for him for sure. 6 picks in the first 3 rounds should turn into at least 4 of the 6 starting right away in a de,og/t and cb.possibly even a wr or qb mixed in there somewhere. it was a lot more than i expected they would get in the end.still a shame to see him go for the reasons he did.
