Asamoah Will be the Odd Man Out

It certainly is an exciting time to be a Chiefs fan. With the Chiefs running their rookie mini camp, you can start to see Scott Pioli and Todd Haley building something special in Kansas City. They had a great draft and already have a lot of young talented players who look ready to take the next step in their career. The Chiefs rookies all look certain to have a spot on the 53 man roster, each spot reflecting the round they were taken in the draft. Eric Berry and Dexter McCluster look set to have the spot of starting SS and slot WR. Javier Arenas has the spot of KR/PR, a very underated position, in my opinion. Tony Moeaki looks like he will be in the mix for the starting TE spot. While Kendrick Lewis and Cameron Sheffield should see some playing time as backup FS and OLB respectively. All those positions represent the player's talent and where they were drafted.

 

Jon Asamoah looks to be the odd man out in this draft. The chiefs have one of the great NFL guards in Brian Waters. They also bought in the highly talented Ryan Lilja to take over the revolving door position that was RG. Asamoah was seen as the 2nd best guard in the draft behind Mike Iupati. Despite his great talent he will probably have to serve as backup G/C. While their is a chance he could be the Chiefs starting center in 2010, It will be strange that they bought in Casey Wiegmann. If they did in fact want a center they could have easily drafted one anyway with a player like JD Walton in the 3rd round. No, I think they drafted him to play guard. While he has great talent he will have to be content with being the backup guard until Waters decides to retire. AP, I have a feeling that isn't too far away. If he starts the season like the last one, We could see him hanging it up during the season. What would you think aboout that?
