- Faces in the CrowdJune 11, 2001
11 | Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs (who tied with the Seahawks and will determine the owner of the 11--12 picks with a coin flip) need a tight end—Tony Moeaki's a primo player when healthy, which isn't often enough—to help quarterback Matt Cassel move the chains. And they need help on the offensive line to keep Cassel safe.
12 | Seattle Seahawks
G.M. John Schneider's not the type to mortgage the future in order to move up in the draft for a quarterback, but he may be the type—seeing how he was on the Green Bay scouting staff that drafted Flynn in 2008—to pay for one. If so, you can trust Flynn to be more like Matt Hasselbeck than Rob Johnson.
13 | Arizona Cardinals
Job One should be to re-sign defensive end Calais Campbell. Job Two? Straighten out QB Kevin Kolb. Instead of worrying about the wisdom of betting five years and $63.5 million on him last year, the Cardinals should draft offensive linemen and start building a fortress around Kolb, then add a good pass-catching tight end in free agency.
14 | Dallas Cowboys
Two cornerbacks. Not one. No team, other than Minnesota, needs help at corner as much as Dallas, and the Cowboys should start with a young vet like the Chiefs' Brandon Carr. After that, they can wait for draft day. The first round could see four or five cornerbacks picked.
15 | Philadelphia Eagles
Interesting call for Andy Reid, who might have a chance to bring former Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo back as defensive coordinator. To do that, Reid would have to make the painful decision to reassign Juan Castillo. But the Philadelphia coach has shown he's not afraid to make tough calls when it comes to his assistants.
