He shows up to the Combine at 346 lbs.

Looking like this.

He shows up to OTAs.

Looking like this.

He does not, unless I've completely missed the boat here, have a contract.

He is not yet getting paid.

But he is working his fucking ass off at practice.

And is STAYING AFTER TO WORK ON TECHNIQUE.

While NOT getting paid for it.

Let's keep the Poe train going. Holy geez, I am really loving this kid.

People say boom or bust but seeing as he looks a hard worker, now has good coaching and with his physical ability, I don't see the bust in him. It might take 2-3 years, but at worst he'll be playing at a Dorsey/Jackson level of play.

Kid's working his ass off without a contract, that really is awesome. He'll be getting some of the best coaching in the entire league at his position, combine that with hard work, natural talent, and you have a future star in the making if he continues it.

I don't have too high expectations for him this year but am excited that we get the opportunity to watch this kid blossom and hope in short few years he becomes the dominate DT we have been looking for.


Now for Dorsey & T Jack this is the year they better produce and no excuses for them.

I wonder how many rookies have been working at the OTAs without a signed deal? IMO Poe is a highly motivated individual because people questioned him as the 11th pick in the draft. He's out to prove those people wrong and to me Chiefs fans couldn't ask for a better scenario.

What's your expectations for Dorsey & T Jack?

This is the year they both better damn well do there jobs. I think they do fine in run defense but we suffer at getting to the QB with them. I'm hoping with Poe he helps collapse the pocket on the inside & T Jack & Dorsey have better routes to the QB, somebody is going be double teamed & taking up blocks for Hali to get there quicker.

I think Dorsey is all he's going to be at this point, which isn't bad.

He's gonna be a solid yet unspectacular 10 year pro, and no, i dont think he's going put up better numbers in a 43 either. He's going up against LG's in the 34. He's going to be going up against LG's in a 43 as well.

"But, but Detoxing! It's the schemes fault! If he were in a 43 he would get better sack numbers because he has to tie up blockers in a 34"

BS BS BS

On passing downs, Hali is taking on LT's and Dorsey is getting 1vs1 matchups vs the LG and he just doesn't get it one. That's not going to change in a 43.

Jackson? I guess we'll see, but i think he'll have a similar career as Dorsey.

This.

How many times has Hali been so close to either a sack or knocking the ball away? I expect his impact to the game to increase dramatically if/when we see the pressure from the D-Line that we've been expecting.

They will do like they've been doing, and that will be fine. I really don't expect more stats from them even if Poe plays like a monster as I expect Poe or the linebackers will be getting the stats. I certainly won't complain if Jackson starts getting sacks like Neil Smith and Dorsey wrecks lines like he did in college, but I'm not expecting that at all.

That is their jobs and they've been doing it pretty well actually. Yeah they're overpaid but its not their fault that they were picked as high as they were.

I seem to be one of the few that doesn't want to see us lose either of them. Now, I do want to see them get much, much more reasonable contracts, but I think they are actually a big part of the defense's improvement.

As for Poe, because of Dorsey and Jackson, I expect Poe will actually look pretty good from the get go. The defense is setup very well for a nose tackle to thrive in, and because of those two I think its actually going to protect Poe in that he can make mistakes and learn and it not be devastating.

I'm not sure if its been by design or it was just how things happened, but both sides of the ball are setup for the key player for them to come in and be successful so if they're good that side of the ball should be great.

I actually think that DJ and Berry will possibly be the biggest benefactors. They might not have to look even more amazing and shrug off blockers to make a play, plus we might see them rush more if there's open lanes for them to attack.

They do their jobs already. Their jobs are to stuff the run and occupy blockers so that Hali, Houston, DJ, Berry etc.... can get to the QB

People will think differently about Dorsey and TJ if Poe pans out in the middle, and I think he'll rape right out of the gate.

This is a misconception. Their PRIMARY job is to tie up blockers, not their only job, which they do a good job at. But they also need to get after the QB, which they fail miserably at.

People need to stop with being disappointed by Dorsey and Jackson poor sack numbers, or poor pass rush if you prefer.

Do you realize this Chiefs defense with Dorsey and Jackson starting all 16 games finished 6th in the league in pass defense despite having no Eric Berry back there and a passrusher like Justin Houston who wasn't a factor early on.
Did you see those games against Rodgers, Big Ben, Brady (without Eric Berry I remember you)?

Let's hope Dontari Poe can collapse the pocket regularly, if not this year next year, but I definitly think Dorsey and Jackson are a good part of the reason why this defense might already be elite.

I really hope the Chiefs resign Dorsey, he is an underrated player, not a star but real solid.

Considering Dorsey and Jackson come out on obvious passing downs, and that the Chiefs were near the bottom in total sacks, ima say that Jackson and Dorsey DIDN'T have a large part in that.

Tying up blockers and stopping the run is not their only job. If this Defense is going to take the next step forward to ELITE status, they have to get more production out of their DE's.

I don't see what Poe is going to do for them. They're not getting push in 1vs1 situations. Poe isn't going to change that.

The guys who will benefit from Poe are the LBers.

No on passing downs they need to be getting to the QB asap. That's there job. Getting penatration & getting double teamed is part of it. There lacking of sacks and getting to the QB is not acceptable, especially at the draft spot they were taken.

IF the nt isn't drawing double teams the ends are. Go Chiefs DJ gif evidences what I'm saying pretty clearly.

I'm not saying there doesn't need to be improvement from both Dorsey and TJ regarding pass rush but we've seen improvement there with good nt play and both players are assending imo.

Whatever if we have a rotation at DEs... Do you deny that the Chiefs pass defence was elite in the second half of last season?

It's clear to me that Dorsey and Jackson's primary job is to stop the run, which they have proved to be great at. I wish they woud give us a bit more passrush but I don't expect it to happen and with the rise of Justin Houston, Allen Bailey and hopefully a decent rookie season by Poe, why are you so concerned by Dorsey and Jackson pass rush?

Between Hali, Houston, Bailey, maybe Poe and Berry and Arenas as great DB passrushers, the passrush will be fine my friend, do not worry.

I agree. 65 snaps, 1 tackle against a Conference USA team that went 2-11. The innate athletic ability doesn't translate to the field. Maybe someone can light a fire under him at the next level. If not, he could be way overvalued. I'm trying to dig up more games - Memphis is tough to find.

There is a lot of cause to be concerned about the pass rush. They were tied for 3rd worst in the league last season.

Dorsey and Jackson combined for a whopping ONE sack the ENTIRE season. That is pathetic.

So lets go with what you've dreamed up though.

Hali continues to be Hali and gets 12-14 Sacks.

Houston Continue where he left off and get 8-10 Sacks.

Dorsey and Jackson continue Being Dorsey and Jackson: 1 Sack

The DB's rushing the QB thing is a bit of a reach, but we'll go with it.

Arenas: 2 Sacks

Berry: 2 Sacks

Now lets say we get about 10 sacks from everywhere else (which is what we got last year) : That would put us at 34 Sacks on the season.

We will have improved from 29th int the league to about 20th.

Not good enough.

BUT

If Dorsey and Jackson do what a good 34 DE would do...Produce 4-5 Sacks each on the season, then we'd be top 10.

Or....close to Elite.

Point?

Dorsey and Jackson producing a combined 1 sack per season isn't going to cut it.

Thank you Detoxing, that's the kind of point I was trying to make out of my questions. I havn't fealt like they've played good enough especially on passing downs. This year they best be getting at the QB. Poes job is collaps the inside, but he is too young & wet behind the ears to get his technique down to be that effective for his first year so we got to count on Dorsey & T Jack to really get after the QB. We should be constructive critisism for there play on the field imo & not just say that's good enough, it's not.

Looking forward to watching him play. If he fills NT for a couple years it's all worth it. That's the position on defense that makes all the difference but gets no glory in 3-4. The guys looks like he's hungry and has game but the tale will tell itself as it always does come showtime.

Certainly rooting for him.

Exactly. It's not good enough. I'm not saying they are bad players, but they have to step it up in passing situations. Their lack of production is too much for the rest of the team to overcome, and Poe isn't going to do them any favors, at least not in his first year or two. There isn't a NT on the planet that will help Dorsey and Jackson win 1vs1. They have to do it themselves, and to this point, neither have shown that they can.

We're not asking for the world here. Something like 4-5 sacks each. We need them to produce that if this D is going to take the next step forward.

The problem with CP's members is that "They just have to clog the lanes" has been beaten into so many people's heads.

It's PART of their job, not their only job.

Even if Houston picks up where he left off and Hali continues to be Hali, it won't be enough to make this defense Elite. Not until those two step it up.

To me it's so what if you can stop the run? Can you stop the pass on first, second or third downs? Cus teams are passing on all the downs and the offences have it easy with the rules so DBs are having to lay off the WRs so it's a must to be able to attack the QB from the D line.

I'm definitely rooting for him. I like the kid a lot.

But that still doesn't mean he wasn't a shitty pick at 11th overall. I'm not even talking about reaching and position value. I'm talking about the concept of taking a guy that high who needs to COMPLETELY transform the way he plays the position.

And if that wasn't bad enough, he doesn't even flash the little stuff that you look for in potential stars. He doesn't have any explosion at all. He's slow off the snap and gets beaten off the ball 99% of the time. He doesn't exactly play with a motor. The number of plays in his highlight reels that I've seen where he really impresses me can be counted on both hands. And I'm INCLUDING the snaps where he doesn't make the play. I'm talking about instances where he gets leverage against a double team, or makes the correct gap read, or just plain athletically dominates the weaker competition (he has only a few of those plays).

He's got unbelievable work ethic, discipline, he's got great coaching here in Kansas City, and he's in a good environment in a scheme that supposedly plays to his strengths. Let's hope those things are enough to correct the glaring weaknesses of his.

Jackson and Dorsey are there to enable others to make plays. Odd that after their improved play, we're talking about how DJ, Hali, and now Houston are making plays. The problem is that its still not enough because the Chiefs are not a big blitzing defense, and rely on just a couple of guys to essentially be their pass rush (hell you could almost argue one guy and amazingly its actually worked decently). I personally would like to see them get more aggressive, and I think that is actually the next step that needs to be taken. We'll see how things turn out obviously, but I think Jackson and Dorsey were told deliberately not to be super aggressive and get after the QB.

I don't think it be too much to ask for each of them to get 10 sacks or average a sack a game would be nice. The thing is one sack for the season just doesn't cut it for either of them and I don't care it's not recipe for winning when your DEs get one sack per year. Even in a 34, at the least give me 12 sacks combined between them. One sack is BS. On a good season they both can get 10+sacks.

But, if Dorsey and Jackson aren't in on passing downs so how are they going to get sacks then? Point, without knowing exactly what they are being asked to actually do, how can you say they need to improve?

Jackson and Dorsey are there to enable others to make plays. Odd that after their improved play, we're talking about how DJ, Hali, and now Houston are making plays. The problem is that its still not enough because the Chiefs are not a big blitzing defense, and rely on just a couple of guys to essentially be their pass rush (hell you could almost argue one guy and amazingly its actually worked decently). I personally would like to see them get more aggressive, and I think that is actually the next step that needs to be taken. We'll see how things turn out obviously, but I think Jackson and Dorsey were told deliberately not to be super aggressive and get after the QB.

Sorry but they were on the field for 200 passing downs last year. Teams are throwing out of their base set against our base defense on 1st and 2nd downs. That means for all those plays Dorsey and Jackson are next to useless.

I have always liked the Poe pick, and his work ethic only makes me like him more.

Just compare Poe's offseason talk to Ryan Sims. At this point after Sims was drafted we knew that he liked to eat ribs, Poe is showing us that he's ready to get to work.

I get the same feeling with Poe as I did when we drafted Hali. I think we will look back in time and think this was a great pick. I love the kid.

I'm forced to take Crennel's word when it comes to an assessment of Poe's ability. there may not be a more qualified person on the planet to defer to in this situation. So until Poe proves that he wasn't worth the pick, I'm going to assume he was.

The Kansas City Chiefs have had their first round pick Dontari Poe in mandatory minicamp this week, as well as the rest of the offseason before this week. That's notable because Poe has yet to sign his rookie contract. In past years rookies wouldn't work out until they had their rookie deal done but Poe's contract isn't a concern with the NFL's rookie wage scale.

Poe said there was "no doubt" he was going to be at the Chiefs offseason program, regardless of his contract.

"I'm here to play football, so I'm doing that side of it," Poe said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs. "I leave that up to pretty much the other people to do that, so I'm just doing what I'm here to do."

So what does Poe working out without a contract say about him?

"It says he wants to make the team," Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. "That's what that says."

Pretty sure he's gonna make the team but Crennel didn't sound concerned at all about Poe's contract.

"They will get it done eventually because of the new structure in camp and things like that, but I think that he wants to learn the system and show what his abilities are so that when he does get assigned he can fall right into place."

3. Brockers (or Cox, though I question how he would fit in our 3-4. I did NOT see him falling to us at all in the mock draft process)

Or anybody else. I saw Dontari Poe's tape and that made me really sour. When a guard from Arkansas freakin State dominates you, that's when I start to question if you're worth the 11th overall.

The big guy's still got a long way to go, but it at least looks like the changes in coaching are making a huge impact.

Woah. Easy there, tiger. I'm warming up to Poe as well, but he's far from a terrific pick yet. He steadily improved throughout last season, considering if he was farting behind Toribio all of preseason. I'm hopeful the aggressive scheme from Bob Newhart will make him even better, but he still has a long way to go. If not, he's no better than a Tyson Jackson kind of player at NT, which is pretty much what we had with Ron Edwards.

Powe is not the protypical run stuffer that I assume you are implying him to be with "no idea how the game has evolved comment".

His problem, from what I could see, in Romeo's scheme, is that he couldn't control his desire to penetrate, and wasn't able to maintain his gap responsibility within the scheme.

Powe is more athletic than his size would indicate, and is a good fit in an attacking 34 because of that athletic ability, and his ability to penetrate.

He was a terrific pick because we took a chance on a player at a critical position whose upside is to play a rare form of that position. He's not just any nose tackle. He has ability to be Vince Wilfork or Haloti Ngata, and that is a really tough and extremely valuable player in this league.

I am not saying he's a terrific pick because he's an awesome player. I know what he is -- he's much further along than we expected, but still has a long way to go. But this was one of the only picks Pioli made where he drafted based on positional value instead of taking a safe pick.

They need to put Powe in two or three times in a quarter just to blow up the center into the back field. He can blow up an offense if that is the mission he is sent in to do. Not for every down but give him a play or two in a series of downs. I think D lineman are at best when they aren't on the field the entire game and get rotated.

I am talking about how the game has evolved to the Nose Tackle having to play multiple techniques. You have to do that to beat No Huddle. Which is why people undervalue DeVito's role in this defense. And they overvalue guys like Terence Cody who play pure zero technique versus a guy like Wilfork who can and does play pretty much every single defensive snap.

Powe is limited in his versatility. He is a pure 0-technique, and that's probably his only position. Poe can play the 0-technique, probably the 5-technique, and has the skill set to even one day play 1-tech and 3-tech.

His saving grace is that he has potential to play in both a 0-technique and a 1-technique, which gives him the 4-3/3-4 flexibility Rex Ryan wants. He's not the guy who's going to play 3-technique or 5-technique. He is a 2-down NT with, you're right, a little more flexibility than say a Terence Cody. But he's not even remotely close to the Haloti Ngatas or Vince Wilforks of the world who are revolutionizing the position.

I think Poe can do better at DE than Tyson Jack. I think Powe should be at NT and give that push shoving the center back and penetrate wreaking havoc with DJ blitzing right behind him.


Poe is more versatile along the line yet Powe has more power to beast it up the middle.

I think Poe can do better at DE than Tyson Jack. I think Powe should be at NT and give that push shoving the center back and penetrate wreaking havoc with DJ blitzing right behind him.


Poe is more versatile along the line yet Powe has more power to beast it up the middle.

It would not surprise me this preseason games to see Powe out play Poe at NT.

What makes a nt like Poe so valuable is when a team goes no huddle and let's say they force you to the nickel or they shift into a 5 receiver set, all of a sudden you can't run a traditional base 3-4. That's what guys like Casey Hampton are getting phased out while Wilfork and ngata are essentially becoming franchise players.

I did forget, however, that if we are moving to a Rex Ryan base defense, that it could also be done keeping both Poe and Powe on the field. Just as Baltimore often does with Cody and ngata. Big difference being that Powe would have to learn the 1 technique which is essentially a 4-3 nose tackle.

Can someone who has the time and know-how, post a rookie season comparison with Poe vs Ngata and all other elite NT types. I have looked it up myself. Think its an eye opener.

I did, and they are very similar

Poe: games 16, batted passes 4, sacks 0, tackles 28, asst 10

Ngata: games 16, batted passes 2, sacks 1, tackles 13, asst 8

That's bullshit saying all Powe can play is the zero.

The guy has the ability to disrupt plays from anywhere in the interior.

Powe sucks ass.

Serious question.

Have you ever been right?

Wilfork: games 16, passes defensed 3, sacks 2, tackles 27, asst 15


If you factor in Romeo's defensive philosophy and the jump in the type of competition that Poe faced in college vs the NFL compared to Ngata and Wilfork, it is easy to see why some folks on this board have high hopes that Poe can wind up being elite, especially if he is utilized in an attacking defense.

Poe's arms are too short. all his pressure are going to be incredibly high effort leg drive push.... he's not going to get any of those instant hand battle victory pressures...

Powe is not the protypical run stuffer that I assume you are implying him to be with "no idea how the game has evolved comment".

His problem, from what I could see, in Romeo's scheme, is that he couldn't control his desire to penetrate, and wasn't able to maintain his gap responsibility within the scheme.

Powe is more athletic than his size would indicate, and is a good fit in an attacking 34 because of that athletic ability, and his ability to penetrate.

Powe or Poe?

I guess I just don't get the hype for Powe. He's struggled to just get on the field. That's not a condemnation really (especially considering our incompetent coaching), as I'd love for him to be Dan Saleamua but I'm just not really understanding why people are talking like he's some hyped up 1st round pick that's already started for a couple of years and is primed to break out or something.

I'm intrigued by how the dline performs under some real coaching and a good scheme that fits its players. I can't wait to see how this D performs in an attacking system. I like Poe and think he can be really good. Well see how he develops in year 2. I think Powe can be a good rotational lineman that generates pressure inside. Would like to see him and Poe side by side to stop the run.

If I am not mistaken Ngata made the probowl with those numbers! That says a lot.

In order of preference:

1. Trade up for Tannehill
2. Take one of the pass rushers that were available to us (Ingram, Mercilus, or Coples)
3. Brockers (or Cox, though I question how he would fit in our 3-4. I did NOT see him falling to us at all in the mock draft process)

Or anybody else. I saw Dontari Poe's tape and that made me really sour. When a guard from Arkansas freakin State dominates you, that's when I start to question if you're worth the 11th overall.

The big guy's still got a long way to go, but it at least looks like the changes in coaching are making a huge impact.

I like the trade up for Tannehill first
Then Brockers
Then DeCastro.

I'd have been right on 1 and 2, but Poe looks like he's going to be a decent player and still has the potential to be far more than that. Taking DeCastro over him would've been a mistake.

I think we have a nice player on our hands in Poe.

1a) trade up for Tannehill
1b) Barron
3) Mercilus
4) Ingram
5) trade down

I think that was my top 5

Poe looked like he was coming along nicely as the year progressed, though, and seems to have a chance to be special.

I didn't expect the Chiefs to trade up for Tannehill.

He was my first choice at 11 if he fell, with Barron 2nd, and Ingram 3rd.
