Speaking of those Chiefs, one can only wonder how good this team could be if they had a halfway-decent defense.
Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton is gone, and that’s a good start. But that doesn’t mean Kansas City can pass up finding some serious reinforcements at all three levels. Re-signing EDGE Dee Ford is the first order of business. Finding some extra defensive backs is also a top priority.
Yet there isn’t a good deal of value here at cornerback, meaning the Chiefs should stick to adding up-front help.
There are some good-quality pass-rushers this late in Round 1, and Florida State’s Brian Burns is one of them. With 10.0 sacks to his credit in 2018, pairing a player like Burns with a re-signed Ford would make K.C.’s pass rush pretty potent.
And that should help take pressure off the beleaguered secondary.
