Did the Kansas City Chiefs improve? CB edition

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

We continue on with our series looking at the 2012 and 2013 Kansas City Chiefs, position-by-position. Did the Chiefs improve at the cornerback position?

2012: Brandon Flowers, Stanford Routt, Javier Arenas, Jalil Brown, Jacques Reeves, Travis Daniels

2013: Brandon Flowers, Dunta Robinson, Sean Smith, Jalil Brown, Vince Agnew, Buddy Jackson

Advantage: 2013

Even though this positions concerns me, it appears to be among the most improved positions on the KC Chiefs roster. Last year the Chiefs looked to have a good set of cornerbacks but then Stanford Routt ended up being a bust, throwing everything into a tailspin. That created a situation where cornerback was a liability.

With new blood this year -- notably Dunta Robinson and Sean Smith -- cornerback does not appear to be a major liability right now. Robinson is a long-time veteran so you think you know what you're getting in him. Smith is a little more boom-or-bust but his height and his coverage abilities should help.

Flowers will hold down one side; Robinson and Smith are competing at the other spot. That's three corners capable of starting. This position got better.
