What Is The Chiefs Biggest Remaining Need?

As we begin to enter the doldrums of the offseason, it's time to take a look at what the Chiefs have done in free agency and the draft.

They added a big running back to complement Jamaal Charles, found a long-term solution at right guard in Ryan Lilja, plugged one of the safety spots with Eric Berry and possibly found their kick returner in Dexter McCluster and/or Javier Arenas.

So what remains?

Nose tackle -- This is obvious. Some would say this was the biggest need following the 2009 season and all the Chiefs have done to address it is sign Shaun Smith.

Inside linebacker -- Another position that, along with safety and nose tackle, was a significant need. The Chiefs did nothing to address this in 2010. They had problems with the position in 2009 so we can assume that will happen once again in 2010.

Center -- Yeah, Casey Wiegmann's a nice piece to the puzzle but for how long? Guys over 35 don't usually get better with age so I'm not sure how much of an upgrade this was.

Offensive tackle -- This is up for debate. Branden Albert doesn't need to be replaced (depending on who you ask) but some say right tackle could've used an upgrade.

Receiver -- Retaining Chris Chambers was key and that should help in 2010 but the cupboard is bare for the long-term.

What's your biggest remaining need?
