Chiefs DT Dontari Poe Joins Jamaal Charles on Team Sanders


Day one of the fantasy Pro Bowl draft is in the books and two of the 10 Kansas City Chiefs playing in the annual NFL all-star game are off the board. As we reported earlier, prolific running back Jamaal Charles was Deion Sanders‘ first pick, making him one of two team co-captains along with Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

Day one of the of the saw the two main captains Sanders and Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice select offensive linemen, defensive tackles, punters, special teamers and fullbacks.

With that being said, Sanders — likely with a little urging from Charles — selected Chiefs second year DT and first-time pro bowler Dontari Poe.

The young man out of Memphis, Tennessee had a solid this year, anchoring the Chiefs defensive line. With 51 total tackles and an impressive four and a half sacks as well as four passes defensed, the solid nose tackle started to live up to the top 15 pick — he was taken at 11 — that was used on him in the 2012 NFL draft.

It would make sense that more Chiefs will fall to team Sanders in the next few days with Charles in charge. But, with 10 Arrowheads in the Pro Bowl, there’s plenty of them to go around.
