    Report: Glenn Dorsey trade still possible

    Report: Glenn Dorsey trade still possible
    April 25, 2009 1:46 PM
    Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

    A league source said it is still a possibility that Kansas City trades second-year defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey to Atlanta. Likely compensation would be the Falcons' first-round pick in Saturday's draft, No. 24, and their third-round pick, No. 90.

    Will this trade happen? We'll see in the next several hours.

    Dorsey was the No. 5 overall pick last season. He had a somewhat disappointing rookie season but he is still considered an elite prospect. However, Dorsey may not be a perfect fit for the 3-4 defensive scheme Kansas City is adopting.

    If Dorsey is dealt, Kansas City will have to find impact players in this draft to play in the new scheme. Drafting former LSU defensive end Tyson Jackson would be the first step. If the Chiefs take former Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji at No. 3, the Dorsey trade talks could still be alive because Raji is considered a perfect 3-4 nose tackle.

    Trading Dorsey would be somewhat risky because the organization invested greatly in Dorsey. Trading the No. 5 overall pick a year after he was drafted is highly unusual. But if Dorsey doesn't fit the new system, at least Kansas City can recoup two picks for him.

    Would the Rams trade AC for him. He could play the other End of Tyson Jackson and Flip picks in the 3rd round.

    Would K.C. want alot more than that.

    Throw in Pisa.

    Did you read the article? It says that "likely compensation' from the Falcons could have been a first and a third. So yeah, the Chiefs would want a lot more than Adam Carriker and to move up one spot in round three. Pisa doesn't fit the 3-4, so he's worthless to them.

    I read the article. Both teams would fill a need Ac there other End . Dorsey would fill are need at DT.

    If W. Witherspoon is moving back to the weakside LB spot why ain't Rams shopping Pisa. We sure could use some extra picks , I don't care if it is in next years draft.

    The Chiefs want at least first round value in exchange for a guy they used a first round pick on last year. Carriker and better third-round positioning doesn't do that at all.

    Because right now, Pisa is penciled in as our starting strong-side linebacker. He doesn't carry much trade value as an undersized outside linebacker with injury problems in his past.
