Kansas City Chiefs 2010 Draft Class Shines Once Again

KANSAS CITY MO - SEPTEMBER 26: Tony Moeaki #81 of the Kansas City Chiefs makes a one-handed 18-yard touchdown catch behind NaVorro Bowman #53 of the San Francisco 49ers at Arrowhead Stadium on September 26 2010 in Kansas City Missouri. The Chiefs won 31-10. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)

We're seeing a trend develop with the Kansas City Chiefs.

These rookies -- you know Dexter, Javier and Tony, right? -- they always make a play. Early on in the Chiefs 2010 season, the playmakers are turning out to be the rookies.

That was no different on Sunday in a 31-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Two rookies in particular stepped it up -- again -- in the Chiefs big win at Arrowhead Stadium.

WR Dexter McCluster: We'll start with McCluster because folks seem to like him the most. On Sunday, he returned three punts one of which went for 30 yards. Every time the PA announcer said, "And back to return the punt is No. 22 Dexter McCluster," the crowd cheered harder than usual. People like this guy....but for a reason. He finally made an impact in the passing game catching three balls for 69 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown catch and run that saw him making a last second cut to dive into the end zone.

TE Tony Moeaki: What else can you say about the Chiefs leading receiver? Moeaki's touchdown catch looked better than the blond that was riding around on Warpaint. He had a linebacker covering him and ran a post to the inside of the field. Cassel put the ball high but really the only place he could and Moeaki leaped up and smoothly hauled it in with one hand from 18 yards out. Perfection.

Big day for the Chiefs 2010 draft class. These guys really are ahead of the curve, as Todd Haley suggested last week.
