First things first, they drafted seven players and so far all seven players remain in their system. While they may only have one starter right now in Berry, many of these players project very well as they improve on their skills. Berry without a doubt was a difference maker; he racked up 92 tackles and four INT’s. McCluster saw action as a runner, as a pass catcher, and as a kick returner. Arenas served as the nickel corner and racked up 42 tackles. Asamoah started one game and contributed on special teams. Moeaki caught 42 passes and earned QB Matt Cassel’s trust. Lewis may end up starting next to Berry and Sheffield went down with an injury.
Here’s what Charles had to say about his matchup with Tebow: “I kind of feel like if you look at who’s been doing stuff in their career to that point, yeah, I think I deserved it. But at that time, you know he has a big fan base. He’s coming from winning two national championships and a Heisman trophy. You’d think this god of football would be whipping my tail in the ‘Madden’ cover thing.”
This is Scott Pioli’s show. Pioli is in his third season as Kansas City’s general manager. He has final say in all draft decisions. Pioli was part of many successful drafts in New England prior to joining the Chiefs in 2009. Pioli has fit this role well in Kansas City. He is a strong, confident leader. After a so-so first draft in Kansas City, Pioli struck gold in 2010. Several rookies made instant impacts and the class was a big reason why the Chiefs went from four wins to a 10-6 team that won the AFC West. Pioli works well with coach Todd Haley, whom Pioli hired. They seem to have the same draft vision and it seems to be a working well.
