This list includes all players under contract in Kansas City, and all drafted and undrafted players, and Bowe, who is currently tagged.

I did this last year and it got quite of bit of rep as people appreciated it being updated.

So here's where we are, currently. This OP will be updated constantly throughout the offseason.

I am placing these players in an unofficial depth chart -- my projections for now. This will obviously change as the roster comes into focus in preseason.

Italics are players on the workout squad, and do not count against the players tally.

Wiegmann is no longer under contract. He signed a one-year deal, like Kelly Gregg.

They remain in relatively close contact with the Chiefs though, as both they and the Chiefs assess their options.

The best part of this list is hopefully a healthy return of Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry & Tony Moeaki. What a difference makers they are for this team. I can get geard up to watch regardless of who is at QB. I don't think anyone on this years draft class will make any immediate impact so maybe down the road they will be worth the picks but I don't expect much this year from them.

Wierd how early Barron was drafted when so many said "you can't take a saftey that high" when we drafted the rightfully so hyped up Berry. And he takes the saftey position to another level. I liked Barron a lot, but don't think he is near the same ballpark of an Eric Berry/Ed Reed impact type player.

04-30-2012, 09:30 AM
I think people can be alright with the TE spot. If Moeaki can stay healthy we potentially have a great TE, and a solid pass catching guy with good blocking skills. Add Maneri as a blocker and that position has potential.



Need some ILB depth still.

Poe, a 350 lb monstrousity, completes the defense. We are no longer transitioning to the two-gap 3-4.

Do you think Cameron Sheffield can help out if need be at ILB? I'd like to see him get on the field and what he can do now that he should be 100% this season. I don't remember him much from last year and he had the injury the year before so I'm interested in seeing him play and hope he can fill in nicely.

ILB depth really isn't a problem at all as long as Johnson doesn't get injured.

Siler and Greenwood are more than adequate backups.

It's safety and DE depth that we need to worry about. You know Bailey is going to get used a bunch this year, and can't really function as a reserve player. Unless you all think Brandon Bair is just the bee's knees.

Our offensive line depth is so goddamn sexy. I just wish we would have acquired a center so Hudson could play guard full time. But it's still cool.

At starter you have two fantastic tackles (one of whom COULD reasonably play guard if things got really fucking dire) On the interior, Hudson doubles as an outstanding guard and center, and will start at center. Behind our tackles is Stephenson who plays both the left and right side. You figure that Allen will get the start at LG but should that not be possible you have Lilja starting with Allen as his backup, who can also serve as reserve reserve depth at tackle. And the cherries on top are guys who are long-term developmental prospects who have a small chance of being some pretty incredible players- Harris (who plays ANY interior line spot) and Mims.

Quality starters and quality depth with potential to play as starters, and over half those guys can play multiple positions adequately and with the same skill and execution as their normal spot.

If any Cassel apologists out there still exist, I don't want to hear ONE FUCKING WORD out of them about the protection. The talent's there. If there's still a problem, it's due to the coaching or even (gasp!) the QB.

I mean, it IS Cassel's fault that he can't stand up to the pressure. Always has been. But now at least we have philosophical closure. We've proven that we don't need offensive line talent. That shit can finally go the hell away.

SNR
04-30-2012, 10:48 AM
Explain yourself.We're using him as our Gilberry, yeah?

If Dorsey/Jackson get injured and he's playing full time DE, that eliminates the ability to use him to get pressure on passing downs. Preferably you want a guy like Gilberry to be the specialist, who stays on the bench if a starter goes down.

I think I might be jumping to conclusions anyway, though. If Dorsey or Jackson are injured, it's Amon Gordon who would get the start, is it not?

That isn't bad at all. What I like about it and reverse from what Carl did here is Pioli is trying to set us up for future success. Never mind the QB situation right now however we got Stanzi in the wing. From Carl years he never left us anything along the lines after the Ws retired Will Shields and Will Roaf. Our O-line hit a wall and we never had anything in the cubboard to regroup with. Now we are getting set up nicely and maybe that is what Pioli efforts are all about? That's what my take is now and we shall see if it pays off. If this is the case I can be more patient with Pioli and also let the QB situation play out itself if Stanzi can showcase quality play in preseason.

So far I think that's the only knock we got on Pioli and that is a big issue yet for us. I do think he will be drafting us QBs altho in later rounds. What he needs to do is jump in the draft to snag the best QB possible in next years draft and we should be set. I can start to appreciate the work Pioli is doing for the rest of the team makeup. Even with Casshole I don't see us drafting in the top 10 next year I think we just are too good of a team for that.

He made a little noise when we had a competent QB in Orton, too. A few select passes.

The way teams are dropping everybody into coverage now, you need to be 4- or 5-deep good at WR.

Copper can be that guy -- if he can just develop a relationship with Cassel.

It's hard; I just never see Cassel as a guy that can utilize as many weapons as he has. It took him half the season, it seems, to recognize Breaston's talent.

Safety and corner is a one-way street.

Corners can become safeties, but safeties almost never become corners.



Didn't the Chiefs try that more than once during the dark ages known as the Carl Peterson era? I was thinking that Warfield or Barter were converted safeties and I am pretty sure there were others. Not that they turned out to be all pro, but they certainly would have been great depth, which is all any of the extra safeties would be if they were converted to corner.

Yup.

And a couple players have proven that little axiom of mine wrong.

Still, CB is a harder position to play in most systems, including ours. It's much more likely you see a CB -> S conversion than the other way around.

The punter and the safety listed earlier were not confirmed by the Chiefs. They will currently be removed from the roster.

Edit: Legree was not confirmed, and also will be removed.

Edit: Fenner is a free safety. And, interestingly, was a sprinter for Holy Cross' track team.

No, I absolutely agree. To me, this team doesn't look all that different than what Peterson did in the 90s.

This team has more weapons then the '90s Chiefs ever had. To me the difference is that Pioli is building the team on both sides of the ball equally. And Pioli's really stuck to building through the draft. Seems like Carl was always trying to find a diamond in FA like a Dan Williams or Chester McGlockton.

I saw that comment on an analysis of the Chief's draft, but haven't seen arrests mentioned anywhere else. Also the suspension was due to academics, not drugs or arrests.

Not trying to defend a pick or a player who's been an idiot, just unsure if the statement is really true.

This is a solid defense but it's not one that consistently goes out and scores points for the team, at least not yet.

"However, Stephenson has failed drug tests, been arrested and was also suspended for the entire 2009 season."

If you're going to post shit like this, post a link.

Only his path hit another obstacle after that abbreviated season at Blue Springs, and this one was more serious. Along with a handful of friends from the city, Stephenson was arrested and charged with multiple counts of burglary of a motor vehicle, theft and criminal damage. Donohoe said Friday that Stephenson was simply along for the ride when the friends allegedly broke into several cars, stealing an iPod, a watch, a camera and several other items.

Donohoe said Stephenson remained in the car and did not participate in the thefts.

“He was at a bad place at a bad time,” Donohoe said. “… His mom told him: ‘You don’t go back with those guys.’”

Still, Michigan withdrew its scholarship offer. Stephenson was serving a 10-day school suspension on National Signing Day, and because he wasn’t permitted on school grounds, he had to fax in his letter of intent to Oklahoma from an Office Depot.

Once in Norman, the Sooners redshirted Stephenson, an effort to add strength to his huge frame. Later, he served a one-season suspension from the Sooners for undisclosed reasons, and he also was arrested in 2009 on a warrant for failure to pay a speeding ticket.

Still, Donohoe insisted Friday that Stephenson is a man of character. He said the Chiefs will see that immediately.

“He knew he screwed up,” Donohoe said.

Think of even the greatest defenses on those Pats Super Bowl teams that Crennel coached. None of them exactly screamed "turnovers". They got big plays, but they weren't known for being opportunistic.

Oh damn, not wearing a seatbelt and speeding?!

http://blog.newsok.com/ou/2010/04/11/warren-cited-for-two-outstanding-warrents/
Stephenson, OUís projected starter at left tackle, was originally stopped for not wearing a seat belt. During a warrant check, the officer discovered Stephenson had two outstanding warrants, one for failing to stop and one for failing to appear on the original charge. Stephenson was taken to the Norman police station, where he posted bond. Stephenson was also served with an outstanding warrant last spring for failure to pay an excessive speeding citation.

Academic suspension three years ago?

Can`t understand people saying they would have taken Barron. The weakest part of our defense is the Dline and I think it`s common knowledge that it`s better to have a great dline than a great secondary.

That they would have taken Tannehill... probably, Kuechly...possibly, but Barron when we already have Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis who has been fine so far...NO.

I`ll say this, the Chiefs linebacker and secondary corps have arguably just as much talent as the great defenses of the Steelers, Ravens, Jets of the last few years. The D-line, despite the fact that I consider Tyson Jackson and Dorsey solid players, not so much.

I'd sure like to re-sign Gilberry. DE looks to be our area of least depth.

Disagree. Tyson Jackson, Glenn Dorsey, Amon Gordon, Allen Bailey, Ropati Pitoitua.

I think our areas of most concern are LB's, inside and outside. If either Tamba or Houston goes down, we have nobody else who can rush the passer. Beyond DJ, and Belcher, all we really have is Siler.

evidently you have Lewis rated higher than some

Other than the first couple of games without Berry last season, where Lewis's role and confidence in the player next to him change dramatically, when has Kendrick Lewis EVER been a liability?

Lewis's weakness is in run support. That didn't stop him from finish near the top of the team for tackles.

You do not give Lewis enough credit...

So I put him behind Bair, since Bair was on the active 53 last season, and in front of our 7th rounder.

Pitoitua had 19 tackles on the season. He seldom makes plays that stand out. He does the dirty work, holding the point of attack and tying up blockers to keep the playmakers behind him clean. Over the years, the coaching staff has gotten the 26 year old to play with more consistent technique. He has improved. A guy as tall as Ropati can sometimes allow blockers to get a base underneath him to push him back, but that has happened less and less.

Sounds like he'll be ahead of Bair on the depth chart...

Blick
05-12-2012, 10:17 AM
Bailey flashed as a pass rusher, but he hasn't proven that he's ready to take over for Gilberry.

He only had 1 sack last year.

If you want to say that Bailey has the potential to provide what Gilberry did, then yeah, I would agree with that.

I would be surprised if Bailey matched Gilberry's 7 sacks from two years ago.

Direckshun
05-15-2012, 11:37 AM
Made a couple adjustments.

Per aturnis, I moved Pitoitua up one slot at DE.

I also removed Luke Patterson from DE, which he's listed at on KCChiefs.com, and moved him to offensive tackle, where the Chiefs are currently playing him.

I also removed all the workout players except for Legree. I think Legree is just terrible, but it's obvious the Chiefs want four QBs for camp.

Following players have been removed:

TE Martin Rucker
OT Jacob Phillips
ILB Leon Williams
S Dominique Ellis

He learned the offense Coughlin runs, at least some of it I imagine and he's had time to reflect. That is the same offense the Chiefs run.

slide Daniels to CB, maybe add Elam or some UDFA at Safety. Consider a "surprise" (i say this loosely) cut like say an Andy Studebaker if they choose to go with an actual Pioli draft pick like Gabe Miller or one of these other randos. I'd also like to think one of these 400 random WRs makes a surprise shock, maybe even Draughn at RB or Cam Holland at C? Stephenson will definitely make it at tackle.

I think this is a good thing. It's been a long time since we have had depth this deep that I can even remember. These guys are giving each other a run for there money. I was stoked before the first preseason game, getting to watch them play really has me stoked.

In some cases it could be a flip of the coin who to keep? The other good thing is I don't think we lose much for injuries this year like last year. Guys can get rotated in and out and gain that experence needed too.

So far .......


I think the cut to 55 is pretty easy ... only 2 more to go

last 2 come down to:

either Amon Gordon or Ropati Pitoitua

and

DaQuan Menzie or Donald Washington

Two updates:

I moved Luke Patterson to second-string C, where he is killing shit right now.

Ray Willis has also retired.

Color me crazy, but I think Jones makes it at OLB over Studebaker.

I want to see some more out of Jones, but I thought he outplayed Stude in the first preseason game.

He seems alot more athletic than Studebaker at this point and is a better rusher. I'm not really sure Studebaker has a spot on this team anymore.

Two tackles retire in one training camp.

Shit.

We need some extra preseason bodies now.
