Kansas City Chiefs: Pro Football Focus Rankings For Every Position After Week 7

8 of 10


PFF ranks Justin Houston No. 5 in pass rushing, No. 3 in coverage and No. 4 in run defense among 3-4 outside linebackers.
His seven sacks tie him for second, while his 20 quarterback hurries place him at third.

Hali has slipped due to lackluster run defense over the past two games. However, he’s still a more viable option in the ground game than Dee Ford.

Josh Mauga is looking better with each week that passes. Throughout his first handful of starts, he regularly lacked gap discipline and seemed lost at sea. Throughout the past three? A complete U-turn.

Mauga is now attacking rather than reacting, which is the primary reason that he finished with a team-high nine tackles against San Francisco.

Houston’s 3-4 OLB Ranking: No. 2 of 49

Mauga’s ILB Ranking: No. 27 of 63

Johnson’s ILB Ranking: No. 38 of 63

Hali’s 3-4 OLB Ranking: No. 19 of 49
