So far, the Kansas City Chiefs have 4 players that have made the NFL’s top 100 players of 2014. The narrator had mentioned in DJ’s presentation that he was the first of five, which means there is only one Chief left to make the list.
Poe is coming off a tremendous season, one in which he put up career numbers in sacks (4.5) and tackles (43) and earned his first trip to the pro-bowl.
Pro Football Focus had Poe as their 30th best player in their top 101 of last season, here’s what they had to say,
One of (if not the) most durable defensive tackles in the league, Poe proved to be some kind of athlete to manage the workload he did while grading in the green in 11 of 16 games he featured in. Particularly strong against the run (where his 30 defensive stops were 3rd most of all nose tackles) this every down terror showed no signs of slowing down as the year went on, registering a pressure in all but two games with eight games of three or more. Described as a workout warrior before entering the league, there aren’t any tagging him for his combine numbers instead of his performance now.
Personally, I felt like Dontari Poe should’ve made the top 100. It’s hard to argue all the Chiefs that have made it but, without a doubt, Poe has quickly become one of, if not the, best defensive tackles in the NFL.
Funny story, when the Chiefs drafted him, I was in the lobby of my five star hotel in Cancun, Mexico. I was so upset by the pick, I tossed my fedora across the lobby in disgust. Boy was I wrong.
Anyway, I felt like Poe deserved to be on this list for 2014, did you?
