We need a defensive lineman that can win 1-on-1 battles. Do you see one in this draft that can routinely do that as a 3-4 player? I don't think there is one that can be that kind of player immediately. If I had to pick one that I think might work out it is Tuitt.
Then we're left with the other side of the coin. If the Chiefs recognize the DEs won't generate enough pressure, then they have to look at the coverage v. blitz schemes from the LBs. They have 2 of 4 LBs that can't cover anything. That is too limiting. Something would have to give, and a player like Van Noy would fit the mold very well.
We'll have to see what KC does but I don't expect an overnight switch. A player like Bailey has to finally step up or something.
