View Full Version : Chiefs This years rookie class looks ready


BossChief

I remember Andy Reid and Terez Paylor saying early on in OTAs that this rookie class is way ahead of the curve and how they might be the most "ready" rookie class Reid has had. I was very impressed with them ALL when I was at practice and the preseason games have done nothing to change that notion.

This is a VERY strange class in that I really think almost everybody contributes right away.

Chris Jones - looks like an immediate difference making player

KeiVarae Russel - probably would be in competition for starting spot if he signed on time.

Parker Ehinger - day 1 starter at LG

Eric Murray - sub package "starter"

Demarcus Robinson - hasn't came on yet.

Kevin Hogan - development QB

Tyreek Hil - will be the day 1 punt returner and I think he starts the year as the #3 WR.

DJ White - has played well in PS and might carve out a role that gets him playing time.

Dadi Nichols - undeniable talent in this kid. Has a chance to be pretty good once he adds a little weight. Should be used as pass rush specialist while Houston is out. Just flies around the field and has natural pass rush talent.


I know it's early, but this rookie class has a good chance to be pretty damn special.

I agree looks like a successful draft glass.Was hoping Russel would look a little better than he has so far.Hope your right that he just needs more time

He missed all of the first 4 defensive installations.

He's still behind the 8ball, but has starter talent.

Depends on your definition of Ready.

Chris Jones,Parker Ehinger and Tyreek Hill are the only 3 'ready' imo

KeiVarae Russel barely 'ready' for preseason/scrub play

Eric Murray looking very rough

Demarcus Robinson will he even make the regular roster?

Kevin Hogan another guy who is doubtful to make the regular roster

DJ White - shown flashes but very inconsistent (normal for rookie)

Dadi Nichols - shown some real skill but coaching staff doesn't seem to be pushing his development. :(

Dadi Nicolas played well with the 2's on Saturday against Chicago's first team offense.

There's a chance that he could be a contributor this year but I look for him to break out big time next year.

He gets it.

Chris Jones - looks like an immediate difference making player Should be a starter.

KeiVarae Russel - probably would be in competition for starting spot if he signed on time. Screwed himself by showing up late. Cut / Practice Squad.

Parker Ehinger - day 1 starter at LG

Eric Murray - sub package "starter" -will make the team.

Demarcus Robinson - hasn't came on yet. Practice squad.

Kevin Hogan - development QB Pratice squad.

Tyreek Hil - will be the day 1 punt returner and I think he starts the year as the #3 WR. Day 1 starter.

DJ White - has played well in PS and might carve out a role that gets him playing time. Will make the team.

Dadi Nichols - undeniable talent in this kid. Has a chance to be pretty good once he adds a little weight. Should be used as pass rush specialist while Houston is out. Just flies around the field and has natural pass rush talent.

Could be the next Mike Maslowski except faster-and hopefully no injuries. The Maz was undrafted and was a hard hitter with a nose for the ball.

Demarcus Robinson, KeiVarae Russell and DJ White won't do anything this year outside of ST's IMO. I really want Nicolas to get some obvious passing down snaps if Ford struggles, but idk if he will.

Murray will probably strictly be a box safety who stuffs he run for the first half of the season until he feels comfortable, but the other 3 should play a lot.

Direckshun
08-29-2016, 02:11 PM
It's early, but I'd say Demarcus Robinson could be a potential cut. He just looks slow and isn't getting separation.

I still think Russell has a chance, but they're almost certainly going to give him the Steven Nelson treatment this year.

What's our dime package at this point? He may play dime, which is like 50% of the snaps in our D.

Peters
Gaines
Nelson
Berry
Parker
Sorenson? White? Murray?

And Ehinger appears 'ready' to be the weak spot on our line while Tyreek Hill appears 'ready' to be the 4th WR.

There's a fair amount of potential here but coming off last season's class where Peters and Morse were immediately studs, I'd say the bar is raised a little higher than where BossChief has placed it.

If they were thinking that Dadi would be ready this year wouldn't they play him with the 1's etc?

There's a lot we don't know, maybe Dadi isn't absorbing the entire playbook are something.

Coaches certainly look like they are planning on playing Ehringer anyway.

I would rather play Fulton myself

I think Hill is going to return kicks and work his way into a DaT role.

I was trying to be positive.

Apparently not positive enough for BossChief, but i was trying.

Hard to believe we'd expose a 3rd or possibly 4th rounder to getting swiped off the practice squad. But it was a weird draft, in that typically a team isn't looking for mid round volume when they have a pretty deep roster.

No we are not. That is crazy talk. Below league average would mean basically bottom 10 at those positions. Those positions may indeed be weak points, but even they are league average. Start with WR. JMac is a legit number 1. That alone puts us above a lot of teams. Conley, Streater and Hill all flashed enough to be league average for 2,3, and 4 WR. Move on to CB. Marcus Peters is a top 10 CB in the league and DROY. He puts us at average or above by himself. Granted there isn't much behind him, but that can be said for most teams. Very few have 2 or more elite CB. Now if you had said that the depth is below league average, I might have entertained that notion until Gaines proves he can step up. But as a whole, they are not below average. LG. Hmm. Ehinger is a rookie that needs to bulk up. But OL is generally weak across the league. I'm not sure that even with his inexperience that I would rank Ehinger bottom 10. I son't believe the staff does either or he wouldn't be starting game 1. That being said, I would definitely like to see improvement there. And with thee young guys we have at those positions, we may just see that improvement sooner rather than later.So calm down, and stop overreacting.

Yeah and we will probably only lose 1 big time player this offseason in Poe/Berry. With a likely 10 picks next year and tradeable comp picks it would be a good year to move up in the first and get a player they love. This teams depth is ridiculous

Unproven doesn't = bad

The WR's are clearly better this year. It's not even up for discussion.

The CB is a question at this point but it's been a question since 2013, yet they've always fared well.

This is the best line since 2003 and with bookend tackles and a great center, can cover most deficiencies.

Below average depth is a better discussion, and right now it may be. But by seasons end, I expect that to be better as well. These young guys, including Ehinger have a lot of upside. They most likely won't all pan out, but I think enough of them will pan out to the point that even the depth becomes at least league average.

Morse

Russell
Nelson
Acker
Gaines (might as well be a 2nd year player)
Ford (third year but looks to be a huge weakness at a key starting position)

That's a huge burden on young unproven players. All of those players are either starting or filling key sub roles.

These other teams don't have that many question marks to that degree.

2014? I remember him running into his offensive lineman during the Raiders game.

The only time I recall Davis impressing was his rookie season against the Colts. Of course, he broke his leg and couldn't continue, which like 2015, directly resulted in a loss but I'm drawing a blank about his performance in 2014.

Chris Jones' development will interesting because if Dorsey struck gold again concerning said D-Tackle then the scheme could be changed that would render Poe's play less damaging to the Defensive corps if he never truly recovered from his injury

The point isn't to have zero question marks, people. It's a roster of 53 players.

The key is to manage your question marks early in the season, and have them answered by the end of the season. And hopefully be peaking by the end of the season.

The Chiefs are in an excellent position for that, with the minor exception of our secondary, which looks like it's going to take a long time to figure that out.

Our OL will mesh well by the end of the season, and has quality backups everywhere on the line (how awesome is that).

Houston will be back and fresh, providing a boost to everything our defense does.

Barring any catastrophic injuries, we should be peaking by the end of the season.
