The Kansas City Chiefs kicked off the 2014 draft with a pass-rushing pianist and ended it with a French-Canadian doctor. If John Dorsey’s first pick of 2015 has a horseshoe mustache and/or any assortment of biker tats, I’m blowing the lid off his Village People cover band.
That said, after watching last year’s bunch on film and throughout the (pre)season, you leave feeling more hopeful than otherwise.
Over the course of Kansas City’s 16-game stretch, the class’ playing time proved to be every bit as unpredictable as the picks themselves, with a sixth-round guard playing 899 more snaps than a first-round edge-rusher.
However, while only four of the six rookies saw the field, and the opportunities for said four widely varied, their play—by rookie standards—was encouraging. It may take another year or so, but Dorsey should see a satisfying return on his investments.
