Dontari Poe Not In The Top 100 Of 2014?


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.

That is obviously Jamaal Charles who, in theory, should make the top 5 players of last year. This must mean that Dontari Poe will not be making the list in 2014.

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?

Here are links to all the Chiefs that have made the list so far.

    A whole lotta people were wrong about poe i think its a great lesson for fans to relax and let the paid professional sciuts and gms do there jobs

    • Josh Michaels says:

      Amen, same goes for Dee Ford

      • Reggie Flenory says:

        Hell yeah bro dee ford gonna be the truth they aint gonna be able to double him houston and hali

    • Frank Leggio says:

      But then we get Aylvester Morris, Tyson Jackson, Jon Baldwin, Glenn Dorsey, etc. let’s not chalk up one good pick as proof that all scouts always pick correctly. They are flawed like everyone else.

  2. Pealvin says:

    I wasnt really worried when we made the pick to aquire him. I just went right to the highlights and looked at his combine stats and I saw a guy that in college played everyspot on the d-line and never came off the field. Plus Romeo was coach then and he know how to draft good defensive players. Poe knows how to plug up the middle. He definitely should have made the top 100 IMO.

  3. Leigh Oleszczak says:

    Poe is a great player, there’s no doubt about that. I’m shocked that he didn’t make the countdown.

  4. Stan Colbert says:

    Poe is a stud! Hopefully, he can stay healthy! Don’t see anyone who could take his place! If he does he will soon get recognition!
