Geoff Schwartz was a free agent signing and quite frankly, thank goodness the Chiefs had him. Schwartz is a bit of a journeyman, having played with the Carolina Panthers and Minnesota Vikings before finding his way on the Kansas City roster.

Schwartz was always viewed as starting talent especially after having a great season in 2010 where he started all 16 games for the Panthers. His role was lost after having to battle injuries that required off season surgery, ultimately leading him to signing with the Vikings where he was thrown into a back up role.

The Vikings let him walk after one season, and Dorsey saw his ability to be a contributor for the Chiefs. After injuries to Jeff Allen, Jon Asamoah and Branden Albert, Schwartz bounced around for the Chiefs this season having to start in 7 games down the stretch.

The game that stands out in particular for Schwartz was the Denver game at Arrowhead where he and Stephenson put on a clinic on the right side causing both guys to remain starters the rest of the season. Schwartz seemed to be an upgrade when he became the starter, and with Asamoah’s contract expiring, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Schwartz get the nod at guard moving forward. Schwartzy makes the list at number 7.
