Boom or bust could be the definitive cliche for the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2011 NFL Draft.
The team has certainly added talent in wide receiver Jon Baldwin, guard/center Rodney Hudson, linebacker Justin Houston and defensive lineman Allen Bailey. However, other than Hudson, each player comes with plenty of questions about work ethic.
Each has a chance to be stellar. But if Baldwin, Houston and Bailey fail, they're going to fail hard. They're all athletic marvels. As a draft analyst, they make nerds like me drool. But CBS NFL Draft analyst Chad Reuter referred to the picks perfectly.
Bailey in particular is a good scheme fit in the Chiefs' 3-4. At Miami, he played end and tackle, but was much better inside. A majority, if not all, of his career sacks came from the tackle spot. So playing in a 3-4 like Kansas City uses will suit him well. The question about Bailey is that he doesn't always play hard. Bailey has first-round talent but late-round ethic at times. That's what landed him in the third round.
