Who will be the Chiefs Best Pass Rusher?

Alright, So who is going to be our sack leader next year? What are your predictions for each player? Here's a little breakdown for you

Everyone is raving about Glen Dorsey, And I'm definitely not saying that he will not be a premier DT for Chiefs. However, how many sacks do DT's actually get? The leading DT sack leader last year was Arizona's Darnell Dockett with 9 sacks, behind 13 DE's! The leading rookie DT was Amobi Akoye with 5.5.

Just in case you were wondering, Ron edwars had 3 sacks. And Tank... let's not go there.

Okay, so we know that DT's normally don't register too high with the sack totals, that's not what their main goal is. They are supposed to get double-teamed and free up the DE's right? Let's look at our DE's last year.

Tamba Hali had 8 last year. However, there were two factors which no longer exist. First, he had foot injuries which should be fully healed during the offseason. Second, and this is more important, Jared Allen is not getting double-teamed anymore. Well, sure, maybe in Minnesota, but not here. Don't be suprised if Tamba starts getting four hands grabbing at his jersey instead of two. In the end, with another year of experience and no more injuries, even with the double-team he still might have a better season than last year.

Alright, our problem area. Actually, this might not be too bad, especially if we rotate fresh bodies regularly. However, Wilkerson had .5 sacks, Turk and Boone had 1 sack each. Of course they were only playing usually when Hali or Allen needed a breather and they mostly put in on running situations, so hopefully they will combine for more than 2.5 sacks next year.

Our LB's (Edwards, Johnson, and Harris) combined for 8 sacks last year. I love DJ and I think he is our best pass rushing LB, but for some reason Gunther doesn't think so highly of him. Maybe I'm wrong, but in this senior highlight reel I see alot of blitzing

Then again, I also like Demorrio Williams, especially after watching this,

Who is our best pass rusher? How many sacks will he have? How many sacks will our team have? I guess we will find out next year.
