Kansas City Chiefs

Perfect draft pair: Clemson QB Deshaun Watson (Round 1, pick 27); Auburn DT Montravius Adams (Round 2, pick 59)

Brooks on Watson: Andy Reid's track record shows he's had tremendous success with athletic quarterbacks. I think Watson's game is similar to the Chiefs' Alex Smith. This would be a perfect fit for the Clemson QB. He could sit for a while and watch Smith, a guy who's a winner.

Brooks on Adams: Adams is a potential replacement for Dontari Poe. Kansas City needs a big guy who can be a power player up front. Adams could be that guy. He has cat-like quickness, which is surprising for a man of his size. I think he can make a tremendous impact right away.
