2020 NFL Draft prospects who could replace current Chiefs players
By Thomas Welte
Help at Defensive End
The Chiefs invested a decent amount of money in defensive end Alex Okafor, who has been nagged by injuries and struggled to make plays. Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah stepped up after coming over in a trade for safety Eric Murray, but he is on an expiring contract and may be in line for a bigger payday than what the Chiefs can offer.
Curtis Weaver has put up some big numbers for Boise State but has not gotten much hype. There are concerns about his athleticism and his overall build, but an NFL training program and putting his hand in the ground will go a long way to helping Weaver reach his potential.
Weaver is a high-motor guy who does a really good job on stunts and twists, a staple of the Spagnuolo defense. The Boise State defender is a bit of a tweener and likely won’t test very well at the combine and that could lead to a steal for Kansas City in the middle rounds of the 2020 NFL draft.
