NUMBER 1: SAFETY, Quintin Demps

Quintin Demps ended up being an excellent pick up for John Dorsey in several ways. The former Houston Texan and Philadelphia Eagle, Demps joined the Chiefs roster for his fifth season because of his relationship with Coach Reid from his days in Philly. Demps has never been a full time starter for a team on defense, but he started six games this season for the Chiefs and churned out his best season as a pro. He finished with 35 total tackles, 9 passes defended and 4 interceptions. Not bad for a guy who was considered depth in the Chiefs secondary.

Where Demps really made his mark this season was special teams. He finished the season with 33 returns for 992 yards and one touchdown. Every time he returned a kick off, he gave the Chiefs an average of 30.1 yards per attempt.

Countless times, the opening kick of the Eagles game in particular, Demps would take a kick to at least the 45 yard line, giving the Chiefs the best starting field position in the NFL. Because of his efforts, Demps was named to the 2013 All AFC team as the starting kick returner.Though he did struggle a bit at times in deep coverage, Demps contributed significantly in some way almost every game. Add his defensive numbers along side his special teams numbers, and it’s easy to see why he made the list at number one.

Some will not agree with this list, which is fine. The point was to shed light on how talented the Chiefs were, and can be, moving forward in the Dorsey/Reid era. So what say the rest of you? Who really deserved to be number one? Who was left out? Make sure to comment below and as always, thanks for reading.
