If we take Star, who plays NT?
I understand the responsibilities of the NT in the 1-gap are far different and in some ways easier than the 2-gap NT.
But here we are. Going on Year 5 of the 3-4 defense in Kansas City, and our NTs have been Tank Tyler, Ron Edwards, brokedick Kelly Gregg, and Anthony ****ing Toribio. Going back to 2008, we've drafted three guys with our high first round pick, and only one of them has played limited action in the most important position on that defensive line and possibly the most important position on the entire defense.
And if we draft Star, he's supposedly going to be ANOTHER 3-4 end?
I mean, when you consider it from the Chiefs' perspective, Lotulelei and Jackson actually ARE the same thing.
