Chiefs defensive line: 2016 stat projections

KANSAS CITY, MO - DECEMBER 13: Dontari Poe /
3 of 4
Jaye Howard
Chiefs defensive lineman Jaye Howard vs. the Vikings during the ’15 regular season /

For these reasons, I expect both of these guys to certainly contribute some production to the Chiefs’ DL unit, but I don’t see big stats coming from either of them this year, but possibly in the seasons to come though depending on their progression and how well they can get Sutton’s system down and adapt to the speed of the NFL starting with this year.

In other words, the stuff that doesn’t show up in the stat columns or the box score, but is still very important at the end of the day.
