The Chiefs led the NFL in average starting field position (the 33.4 yard-line) as well as opponents’ starting average field position (23.2-yard line).
So special teams coordinator Dave Toub is looking for some young players to fill the roles on coverage and return units, including first-round pick Dee Ford.
“I want to see Dee Ford,” Toub said. “I know he is going to be a pass rusher for us, but he’s also going to play some special teams. I’m excited about seeing him. (Wide receiver) Albert Wilson, I want to see him in some coverage, we know he can be a returner, we believe he can. We want to see him cover some kicks.
“(Safety) Daniel Sorensen is certainly on that list, all the rookies, we can’t wait to see those guys.”
