"Something we talked about internally, the players that we hope and anticipate to see the greatest amount of growth from is the draft classes of 2010 and 2011. The 2010 group had a little bit of an offseason and played their rookie season but then had no offseason. So they didn't have time to develop physically, mentally, emotionally. Then last year's class, those guys get picked and all of a sudden they show up there almost in full pads those first couple of days. This is a critical year league-wide, not just for the Chiefs, but league-wide for those players."
