Just like Poe, Ngata was drafted as a nose tackle. As Alen Dumonjic points out, Poe is being drafted to play the nose tackle position in Kansas City. Dumonjic believes that Poe will struggle to perform early on because, as he rightfully points out, he struggled to make an impact manning two gaps in college.
Dumonjic makes a great case against Poe early in his career, and he also writes a fascinating article about the scheme that the Chiefs run, but personally, I disagree with him. I don’t disagree that Poe cannot play the role that the Chiefs scheme asks its nose tackle to do, but I do disagree that Poe can’t have success in the NFL early on.
