Tyson Jackson, Mike DeVito and Dontari Poe are set as the starters. As backups, the Chiefs have a collection of journeymen (Daniel Muir, Marcus Dixon) and inexperienced players (Allen Bailey, Anthony Toribio, Jerrell Powe).
The Chiefs have enough bodies. But other than Dwayne Bowe and, to a lesser extent, Donnie Avery, they have no proven commodity. Jon Baldwin, Dexter McCluster and Devin Wylie have underachieved.
•Safety: Fifth-round pick Sanders Commings eases the burden, but there’s little depth behind the starters, Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis.
