That does not change the fact that they are the second most important position in football.
Von has won games for the Broncos. Why are DTs the second most important position if they can't win games for their teams?
DT, imo, is the worst position to take early. Perhaps the fact that the Chiefs love drafting DTs early and the fact that the Chiefs are horrible are not unrelated.
