Five Sleepers the Chiefs Should Target Later in the Draft

With many positions of need being filled via free agency(Jeremy Maclin at wide receiver, Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika at guard), the Chiefs have a much better roster than they did coming into free agency. However, they could still add depth at  wide receiver, tight end, defensive tackle, and linebacker. Not every star prospect can be taken in the first round, and so the Chiefs could...

Why it might be wise to give Dontari Poe a break

For a player his size, the Kansas City Chiefs sure do play Dontari Poe a lot. Finding a three-down nose tackle with his pass-rushing ability is so incredibly rare, so it's no wonder defensive coordinator Bob Sutton wants Poe on the field. But in doing so, K.C. could be relying on Poe's monster athleticism a little too much. Consider that Poe has been a staple of that defense from...

Top 10 defensive tackles in the 2015 NFL Draft

Few positions in the NFL are as big of an enigma as defensive tackle. Finding a player who can do the job necessary in the interior of the d-line at times feels like an impossible mission, the NFL version of tracking down Sasquatch. For one, it’s tough to define success at the position. Often, a defensive tackle’s job is to occupy blockers, freeing up linebackers behind him to...
