Our front 7 is going to be fun to watch in the near future.

Much improved from blind demons with downs from what i have heard.

He's not much of a linebacker, but he sure plays a mean pinball.

What’s the CP consensus of him after 2 games? Seems to always be around the ball

He's still a rookie and will still make rookie mistakes from time to time, but so far his speed and instincts are evident. I'm excited to see what he and Willie Gay are looking like for us at the beginning of December.

Humphrey is already lining up as the starting C.

Not every draft pick is going to contribute immediately. The only issue here is that youíre focusing on the ones that donít, and ignoring the ones that do.

Our last 2 draft have been fantastic, and if this one is anything like last years or how it looks on paper, it will absolutely be ďsustainableĒ.

People who know what they're looking at: Damn Bolton is solid out there already

CP drafturbators: But but but muh 3 cone!!

I think heís gonna be good. We will walk on Hitch next year and I donít see any drop off. Bolton also has a higher upside than Hitch IMO.

Looks like we could be moving on from all 3 of the big 2019 defensive overhaul signings (Clark and HB).

It's possible.

I think they find a way to get HB done though.

Yeah, I'd be shocked if Hitch and Clark are back. Honey Badger I'm leaning towards them re-signing, although I think we need to be very careful of a 29/30 year old safety.

Honey Badger is a big part of our defense and the attitude change that came with the overhaul. He's still playing at a high level. If Hitchens and Clark are both gone, I see no reason to let Mathieu walk. Safeties like him aren't easily replaced.

I think it’s clear that HB is extremely valuable… but.

Veach has been softening the ground for his release by saying money is tight.

The Chiefs are likely extending Hill, Brown, and probably a premier DE next offseason after we let Clark go.

I don’t know how you do that while also signing a 30 year old safety to $17m/year money.

Maybe the salary cap will surprise me, but I doubt it.

Honestly I hope you are wrong and they retain HB. At the same time he has a say in it as well. He has to understand the money/length of contract he probably wants makes it hard for KC to retain him. I imagine if he is reasonable with his demands Veach finds a way to keep him. If not he walks and goes to the highest bidder.

Pretty much this. I think Veach has a number that works and HB wants more. Veach wants to keep him but isnít going to chase a number that will make it impossible to keep Orlando or Tyreek. Not for a guy who will be 34 by the end of the deal.

That said, thereís no reason we canít just deal with this issue next offseason. Maybe his price goes up but maybe it doesnít. Time will tellÖ..

Sadly, Badger seems to be a merc. He originally said he wanted to stay in Houston but then came here for more money. Since winning a ring, and being voted team MVP, dude seems all about recognition and the payday.

Best of luck HB. Thanks for (potentially) three awesome years, but its time to go.

I'd hate to see him go but business is business, we could trade him off, right?
