I will be breaking down what I think of this Chiefs team and the likely build of this roster. I will then give my opinion on the season schedule and my projection for this team. You may cry homer or hater but this is just my opinion.
3 Quarterbacks is standard procedure and Cassel is obviously the starter. I arrange the other two by experience because that affects playing time.
RB: Hillis and Charles, Gray, Draughn
Hillis and Charles are listed together because they are 1A and 1B. Gray and Draughn both show promise as backs.
FB : Bannon
The only fullback on roster that I see us keeping.
WR 1: Bowe, Breaston, Hemmingway
Outside receivers with talent and Hemmingway wouldn't survive on the PS.
WR 2: Baldwin, Copper
Baldwin is a starter in the league and Copper is a special teams ace as well as a quality backup.
WR slot: McCluster, Wylie
Two very good slot receivers that have high potential.
LT: Albert, Mims, Stephenson
Albert is great, Mims is a solid backup tackle, and Stephenson has a high upside.
LG: Lilja, Allen
Lilja is the starter but Allen is the very talented rookie replacement.
C: Hudson, Lilja
Tough choice here as I really like Cam Holland as a prospect. Hopefully he survives as a PS member.
RG: Asamoah, Allen
Again Asamoah is the starter but Allen is right there if we need him.
RT: Winston, Mims, Stephenson
Winston's one of the best in the business but Mims and Stephenson are quality depth with little experience.
TE: Boss, Moeaki, Mineri
Boss is the starter due to experience but probably plays the same amount as Moeaki. Mineri is a solid all around TE.
LDE: Jackson, Gordon, Powe
Stout run stuffing defensive lineman. Gordon and Powe can play multiple positions.
NT: Toribio, Poe, Powe
I think Toribio holds the starter spot on 1st and 2nd downs but Poe pushes hard for playing time. Powe is quality depth.
RDE: Dorsey, Bailey, Poe
Dorsey is the run stuffing starter but Bailey can get after the QB and Poe has pass rush potential.
WOLB: Hali, Sheffield
The pure pass rushing position. Hali is a stud starter and Sheffield has shown flashes.
WILB: Johnson, Greenwood
Pass coverage linebackers and Johnson is one of the best in the league.
SILB: Siler, Belcher
Run stuffers and both show a very good ability at it.
SOLB: Houston, Studebaker
All around linebackers with ability to get after the QB. I expect big things from Houston
CB 1: Flowers, Daniels
Flowers has all pro potential and Daniels is a stud backup.
CB 2: Routt, Brown
Routt is the veteran starter and Brown has shown some ability with great measurables.
Slot: Arenas, Menzie
Star corners or slot corners for others. They do it all: man coverage, zone coverage, and blitzing.
FS: Lewis, Menzie
Lewis has shown real ability at FS and Menzie is the young up and comer.
SS: Berry, Elam
Berry is an elite level talent and Elam is a veteran presence in the backfield.
Chiefs Losses: New Orleans, Baltimore, @ San Diego, @ Pitt, @ Oakland, @ Denver
Chiefs Record: 10-6 (Winning the Division)
Chiefs get their first win in the postseason in way too long.
