Coffee with the Chiefs: Enough corners?


In the 2016 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected three cornerbacks to help bolster the depth chart.

After selecting KeiVarae Russell in the third round, the Chiefs took Eric Murray in the fourth and D.J. White in the sixth. This will help the odds of finding Marcus Peters a running mate after the departure of Sean Smith in free agency. However, are the Chiefs in a good spot at this position?

Kansas City needs at least one of these youngsters to step up. Incredibly, Phillip Gaines is going to be the veteran of the group going into his third year. This could be a great thing, or horrifying.
