The Kansas City Chiefs have messed around, and wasted the prime of certain players on the roster. Now, it is up to general manager Brett Veach to use the recently acquired youth on the roster to create something special.

Year after year, struggle after struggle, the Kansas City Chiefs could not get over the hump. That hump being the “Divisional Round” of the NFL playoffs. While the prime of some of the best players on the roster was used up, Veach took matters into his own hands, and set the Chiefs up for success by adding a new variable into the equation – youth.

Veach’s free agent additions to the offense and defense of the roster sets up a valuable foundation for the Chiefs in years to come. With these additions, the Chiefs’ roster looks quite a bit different from what former general manager John Dorsey created during his tenure in Kansas City.

In this article we will focus primarily on the offensive side of the football, in the skilled positions of quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight ends. This will be a series of articles, as we look ahead into the 2018 NFL Draft, so please stayed tuned.

This article is broken down into positions, as it will focus on the youth of each skilled position on offense. Veach did a great job of adding youth, and helps the Chiefs once again, chase the Lombardi trophy.
