By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"The world for the Kansas City Chiefs over the last 10 seasons would look different if the 2005 NFL draft went as pointafter.com now suggests it would if the 32 teams had it to do over again. The Chiefs would never have been able to draft linebacker Derrick Johnson from Texas with the 15th overall pick that year.
