KC Chiefs front office ranked in NFL’s Top 10
By Matt Conner
The end results speak for themselves when it comes to the Kansas City Chiefs over the last few seasons. No franchise has enjoyed more sustained success over the last half-decade, so it stands to reason that any facet of the organization should be smiled upon—at least in part. For the front office, that means being ranked in the top 10 in the NFL by the folks at the Pro Football Network.
The latest ranking by PFF looked at the general managers (and their respective staffs) around the league and Chiefs GM Brett Veach and company came in at No. 7 overall.
Pro Football Network has ranked the various front offices of the National Football League and the Chiefs came in at No. 7 overall.
It almost seems a bit weird that the Chiefs wouldn’t be credited even higher on the list given their achievements over the last few years. The AFC runs through Kansas City with four consecutive conference championships being held at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs have also been to two Super Bowls in that stretch with one Lombardi Trophy to their credit.
Beyond that, the Chiefs look positioned for the next several years to make similar runs deep into the postseason. Patrick Mahomes as the starting quarterback guarantees a high level of success in itself, as does the presence of Andy Reid on the sidelines, but the Chiefs are fresh off of a celebrated draft class and that comes after drafting a few impact starters a year ago. Oh yeah, the Chiefs also have 12 picks scheduled for next year if compensatory formulas are correct.
That said, Veach started off a little rough when it comes to draft decisions and the Chiefs are hurting at present due to an inability to hit on pass rushers such as Breeland Speaks. If the Chiefs are able to finish strong in a year after trading Tyreek Hill, the Chiefs front office will find itself climbing on this list a year from now.
