Who's the Best Chief? Ranking The Chiefs Top 25 Players on the Team

As you all should know training camp has approached and it is starting to get more and more close to Kansas City Chiefs football. I am one of those optimistic Chiefs fans and I really think the Chiefs have a special season in store for them in 2010. I am really excited because all the positive things I have heard about how much progress the Chiefs players are making. The little things are what you can get the most out of like: Brian Waters passing the conditioning test on the first try, Casey Wiegmann passing the conditioning test on the first try even at age 37, Dexter McCluster dropping jaws, Eric Berry being a model teammate, and Dwayne Bowe looking really sharp. So anyways here is a list of the top 25 Chiefs on the team and where they rank on the team.

25.  Shaun Smith, NT: He has past success and has a chance to takeover at the nose

24.  Rudy Niswanger, C: Niswanger has been consistent and really inconsistent might lose starting job

23.  Dajuan Morgan, S: I really think he should start next to Eric Berry he has shown strides 

22.  Wallace Gilberry, DE: Good quality backup could switch to OLB

21.  Alex Magee, DE: Like Gilberry a very good quality backup

20. Ryan O' Callaghan, OT: A very underrated player, good run blocker

19.  Leonard Pope, TE: A very big lanky tight end has shown he can be an occasional threat

18.  Tyson Jackson, DE: Had a slow rookie season look for big improvement from him in 2010

17.  Casey Wiegmann, C: He is old at age 37, but he is healthy and better than Niswanger

16.  Dexter McCluster, WR: A very exciting player, people think he could win Offensive Rookie of the Year

15.  Mike Vrabel, OLB: Can provide a descent pass rush, but mainly a big role model and leader for the Chiefs

14. Derrick Johnson, ILB: When DJ is on the field he makes big plays, expect for him to make a push to start 

13.  Branden Albert, OT: Showed major improvement towards the end of last season

12. Chris Chambers, WR: A good quality receiver in just 9 games he posted up over 600 yards

11. Ryan Lilja, OG: Started all 16 games for the Colts Super Bowl run last year

10. Matt Cassel, QB: Expect major improvement from Cassel in 2010 has new weapons and linemen

 9.  Brandon Carr, CB: One of the better number 2 cornerbacks in the NFL

 8.  Glenn Dorsey, DE: The most underrated player on the Chiefs good at finding ball carriers 55 tackles last season

 7. Dwayne Bowe, WR: Look for big improvement from Bowe has been very impressive in training camp so far

 6. Brian Waters, OG: Showed up to training camp in great shape look for a Pro-Bowl for Waters

 5. Tamba Hali, OLB: One of the better pass rushers in the NFL 8.5 sacks in 2009

 4. Thomas Jones, RB: One of the best running backs in the NFL, great leader

 3. Eric Berry, S: I expect big things from Berry in 2010 the best candidate to win Defensive Rookie of the Year

 2. Jamaal Charles, RB: Arguably the most explosive player in the NFL, look for  over 1000 yards again in in 2010

 1. Brandon Flowers, CB: The most underrated cornerback in the NFL, the Chiefs best defensive player



Special Teams: I know I didn't put Ryan Succop and Dustin Colquitt on this list, but in my opinion Succop is the 12th best kicker in the NFL, while Colquitt is the 3rd best punter in the NFL
