Team Needs: Kansas City Chiefs

March 07, 2011 | Brian Billick

Kansas City returned to relevancy in 2010 with the leagues best rushing attack, improved play at the quarterback and wide receiver positions, and the second fewest give-always in the league.

Few teams got more productivity out of the 2010 draft than did Kansas City.  Safety, Eric Berry went to the Pro Bowl after being the 5th pick of the draft and Dexter McCluster, Javier Arenas and Jon Asamoah all either started or added solid depth.  Tight End, Tony Moeaki may have been the best value of this class.  As the 93rd player selected, he was second on the team in receptions behind Pro Bowler Dwayne Bowe.

Kansas City has the 21st overall pick and should be looking for value along both sides of the line of scrimmage.  Depth along the offensive line might be a high priority and even more so should they suffer some loses to free agency.  The Chiefs could also be aided by picks along the defensive line or a solid pass rushing OLB to bookend Tamba Hali.  Remember, KC used its first overall pick in 2008 and 2009, both top 5 selections, in taking Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson respectively.

They will need further production from them and more this season given their out of division opponents coming from the NFC North and AFC East along with games vs Pittsburgh and at Indy.
